Facelifted Haima S7 hits the Chinese car market
Published on June 6, 2013 by Joey Wang
The facelifted Haima S7 SUV has been launched on the Chinese car market. Price starts at 106.800 yuan and ends at 146.800 yuan. The facelifted Haima S7 (the old one was called ‘Haima 7′, without the S) debuted on the Shanghai Auto Show in April. The facelift includes new headlights, a new grille, new bumpers, new rear lights, and an updated interior.
Power comes from a 2.0 four-cylinder with 150hp and 180nm, mated to a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic. Size: 4498/1830/1730, wheelbase is 2619. The Haima S7 competes with fine cars such as the JAC Eagle S5, the Haval H6, the Geely GLEagle GX7 and the Huyundai Tucson.
The facelift has done the Haima S7 a lotta good, it has become a car that could be considered interesting. Sales of the old Haima 7 were very low, but the new car will likely do much better.
Interior improved a lot too, sporty dials cool in blue, large screen on the center console, hip dial-tone seats, and the quality of the black plastics is acceptable.
Only strange thingie are the extremely small exhaust pipes hiding in the lower part of the bumper. A sporty SUV needs Big Pipes!
