Spy shots of the facelifted Great Wall Haval M2 SUV, it is scheduled to debut on the Beijing Auto Show in April and it will be launched on the China car market in the second half of the year. The facelift includes a new grille, new headlights, new rear lights, new bumpers, and an updated interior. The photos also show the vehicle will drop the Haval name to prevent confusion with the separate Haval brand. New name will thus be: Great Wall M2. Strangely, the facelifted M4 will keep the Haval name.
