Haval H9 2018 pricing and specs confirmed


Haval Motors Australia launched its facelifted H9 line-up this week with the seven-seat large SUV range receiving reduced pricing, a boosted powertrain, a new transmission, a restyled front end, an upgraded interior and more equipment.

The Lux grade opens the four-wheel drive H9 line-up from $40,990 before on-road costs, while the range-topping Ultra variant checks in at $44,990. 

Driveaway pricing of $41,990 for the Lux and $45,990 for the Ultra is offered from launch. These figures are respectively $4500 and $4000 lower than the equivalent pre-facelift grades.

Outputs for the 2230kg H9's 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine have increased to 180kW of power at 5500rpm and 350Nm of torque from 1800 to 4500rpm, up 20kW/26Nm.

Haval will upgrade the H9 again in the third quarter this year, this time adding auto emergency braking, forward collision warning and adaptive cruise control.

An eight-speed ZF torque-convertor automatic transmission replaces the old six-speed unit, offering "improved launch feel, performance, off-road ability and economy", according to Haval.

Speaking of the latter, claimed fuel consumption on the combined cycle test is now 10.9 litres per 100 kilometres, down from 12.1L/100km, partly thanks the addition of stop-start technology.

Haval also claims the H9 can now sprint from 0-100km/h in "just over 10 seconds", representing a 20 per cent improvement over its predecessor.

The H9's front-end styling has been tweaked with a five-bar grille, a reworked lower air intake and circular foglights, while five-spoke, 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 265/60 tyres are now standard on both variants.

Inside, digital instrumentation is flanked by a traditional analogue tachometer and gauges – a first for a Haval model. The centre console has also been redesigned, now featuring a T-bar shifter.

Unique standard equipment in the Lux includes 25W xenon headlights, a sunroof, fabric seats and a 10-speaker sound system.

Alternatively, the Ultra further adds adaptive 35W xenon headlights, a panoramic sunroof, 'Comfort-Tek' leather seats, power heated first- and second-row seats, ventilated front seats with massaging function, a heated steering wheel, power folding third-row seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and a 10-speaker Infinity sound system.

Each variant comes standard with an 'All-Terrain Control System' (ATCS).

Both grades also feature an 8.0-inch touchscreen multimedia system, satellite navigation, tri-zone climate control, third-row air vents, power side mirrors, an electronic rear differential lock, stainless-steel scuff plates, aluminium pedals and a leather steering wheel with paddle shifters.

Furthermore, each variant comes standard with an 'All-Terrain Control System' (ATCS) that allows the driver to select between six different driving modes – 'Auto', 'Sand', 'Snow', 'Mud', '4L' and 'Sport'.

Safety and driver-assist technologies now extend to blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning and rear cross-traffic alert, complementing the pre-existing six airbags, driver fatigue detection, tyre pressure monitoring, cruise control, hill-start and -descent assist, front and rear parking sensors, reversing camera and park assist systems.

Haval will upgrade the H9 again in the third quarter this year, this time adding auto emergency braking, forward collision warning and adaptive cruise control.
