The first shipments of the All-New Haval Jolion SUV are about to arrive into New Zealand.
The Jolion will be available in two grades initially, the mid-grade Lux and range-topping Ultra.
It features a chrome grille finish with horizontal accents to create a bold, premium impression which will set it apart from future models.
Completely new from the ground up and like its larger sibling the new H6, the All-New Haval Jolion sits on the company’s new global lightweight modular platform to provide a more refined and enjoyable driving experience.
Power is delivered to the front wheels by a re-engineered 1.5 litre turbo petrol engine with 110kW of power and 210Nm of torque mated to a 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT). Four different drive modes are available on demand to cater for various driving conditions – Standard, Eco, Sport and Snow.
The Jolion has been benchmarked against the best-selling global SUVs which has resulted in a wheelbase of 2700mm, length of 4472mm and width of 1841mm.
With the flexibility and feature set of a larger SUV but at a small SUV price point, the Jolion is expected to stand out in a competitive market and make significant contribution to growing the HAVAL brand further in New Zealand and international markets.
Technology is very much at the fore with features such as a colour LED instrument cluster, Heads Up Display, camera-based fatigue monitoring and wireless charging available.
Safety also remains a priority with Autonomous Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist, Blind Spot Monitoring, Adaptive Cruise Control, Traffic Sign Recognition and Rear Cross Traffic Alert standard across the range.
GWM Head of Marketing & Communications, Steve Maciver said “There’s certainly a lot happening at GWM at the moment. To now confirm the imminent arrival of the All-New Haval Jolion, followed closely by the All-New H6, is indicative of the progress that our brand is making. With two brand new SUV options that are loaded with technology, safety and value, there has never been a better time for buyers to consider HAVAL.”
With contemporary styling both inside and out, the All-New HAVAL Jolion is the second of the new HAVAL SUV line-up to be conceived by world-renowned designer Phil Simmons.
Produced in GWM’s new state-of-the-art production facility in Taizhou, near Shanghai, the Jolion is an important strategic model in realizing the company’s international growth ambitions.
Full specifications, features and pricing will be disclosed at a later date.
