This is the brand new Haima S5 SUV, it will debut on the Beijing Auto Show in April and launch on the China car market soon thereafter. Price will start around 95.000 yuan and end around 130.000 yuan. The S5 is the second SUV for the Haima brand after the larger Haima S7.
Trendy dash with large chrome bars inside the steering wheel. Sporty dials for sure. Screen a bit on the small side an kinda hiding under its roof. More chrome around the air vents. Center console in piano black. Sporty seats in black and beige.
Power comes from a turbocharged 1.5 liter four-cylinder with 150hp and 210nm mated to a 5-speed manual or a CVT sending power to the front wheels. A naturally aspirated 1.5 will become available in late 2014 and some Chinese media say Haima is working on a 180hp 1.8 turbo. Size: 4285/1818/1653mm, wheelbase is 2642mm.
Wheels could be a bit bigger. Chinese automakers use small wheels as a cheap solution to bring fuel consumption down. Sadly, they don’t seem to care about the looks.
The 1.5 turbo.
China = big chrome grille.
