The new Great Wall baby from the Haval brand is called the Haval Cool Dog, and now we got the interior spy shots for the first time. Haval is into animal names now, just like ORA, but unlike WEY, which does coffee names.
Based on the spy shots, we can tell the Haval Cool Dog’s interior will come in two versions. The first offers a digital instrument panel with a single central screen. The second one is more exciting with a digital instrument panel and twin-screen, one central and the second for the passenger.
Haval Cool Dog was previously known as a semi-concept car named X-Dog. Later the production version of this strange-looking SUV leaked from Chinese MIIT. Its appearance wasn’t very different than the X-Dog; only some details have changed.
But the interior is quite a different story. Firstly presented as a concept, Haval X-Dog had five screens. The screens were everywhere in this SUV, even on the wheel. It was clear that few of them would move to the production version. And the latest spy shots of the Cool Dog have proved it.
There will be two versions of the Cool Dog’s interior. First will be equipped with an ordinary floating touch screen and digital dashboard. But the second one has got a twin-screen with a horizontal orientation. Each of them has an approximately 12-inch display. So the passenger’s seat would also get its own touch screen.
Cool Dog’s interior also has a lot of exciting details. It has a few physical buttons, mainly on the steering wheel. In a center tunnel, there is plane style gear lever. The armrest area has cup holders, special storage for the mobile phone, and an engine start/stop button. Under the center tunnel, there is a roomy storage space with a USB port and a 12V power outlet.
Haval Cool Dog is a mid-size SUV. Its length, width, and height are 4520mm, 1875mm, and 1745mm. The wheelbase is 2710mm. Haval Cool Dog has two slightly different versions according to Chinese MIIT. The first one has a curb weight of 2,110 kg and a 1,5-liter engine with 177 hp and a maximum speed of around 175 km/h. The other one is slightly lighter with a curb weight of 2,023 kg and a 1,5-liter engine with 184 hp output. The maximum speed of this version is limited to 180 km/h.
The Haval Cool Dog will be launched on the Chinese car market in Q2 2022.
