What you should know about Haval H5

The Haval H5 is an SUV that stands on the platform of the Great Wall King Kong Poer (Cannon) pickup truck. As a result, it has become significantly bigger than the previous generation H5. For clarity, the new generation is 540 mm longer, 105 mm wider and 80 mm higher than the old one. Its exact dimensions are 5190/1905/1833 mm with a wheelbase of 3140 mm. The exterior of the Haval H5 has large trapeze-shaped headlights, a giant chrome-plated grille and a relatively high beltline. Its approach and departure angles are 25 and 22 degrees, respectively. On the other hand, the new H5 has a drawback. It is available only with a 5-seat interior layout.

Speaking about the interior of the Haval H5, it has a 12.3-inch touch screen, a 3.5-inch screen in the instrument panel, and up to six speakers. Its seats are wrapped in leatherette. But the materials of the interior are clearly not the best side of the Haval H5. Its main benefit is the space inside the cabin. If you fold the second row of its seats, you get 2116 L.

The powertrain of the all-new Haval H5 has two options. The first one is a petrol-powered turbocharged 2-liter engine for 190-218 hp (260-380 Nm), depending on the transmission. And the second ICE option is powered by diesel fuel. Its power output reaches 163 hp. As for the torque, it lies in 360-380 Nm range, depending on the transmission. Speaking of one, the H5 has two options. The first one is a 6-speed MT. And the second one is an 8AT. The fuel consumption of the H5 is unknown. However, it has a fuel tank for 80 L. The entry-level Haval H5 goes standard with a rear-wheel drive. The four-wheel drive is optional, and it is a part-time system.

Haval H5 specs and prices

The Haval H5 with a petrol-powered engine has got four trim levels. The entry one is RWD with 6-speed manual transmission. This trim level hasn’t got a touch screen. Moreover, it has got only four speakers, front air bags, rear parking radars and cruise control. As for the price tag of this version, it reaches 122,800 yuan (15,950 USD). It is a really basic trim.

However, the top-trim level Haval H5 is much more interesting. It is equipped with 4WD, round-view camera, 6 speakers, a 12.3-inch screen with built-in Wi-Fi and OTA updates. Its price tag is 157,800 yuan (21,770 USD). Moreover, the H5 is available with a few optional packages. The first one (+ 3,000 yuan) is a self-driving system package that adds an L2 self-driving system with adaptive cruise-control, etc. And the second one (+ 3,000 yuan) adds a panoramic roof and heated seats. The third one (+3,000 yuan) is a rear axle differential lock. And the last one is an additional door step (+1,000 yuan). As a result, the top price of the H5 is 167,800 yuan (23,150 USD).

Speaking about the diesel-powered H5, it has two trim levels. The first one is available for 147,800 yuan (20,390 USD). For this price, it is equipped with 6MT, 4WD, round-view camera system, smart key, etc. As for the top-trim level, it has the same equipment as the top-spec petrol-powered one. And it has the same sticker price of 157,800 yuan (21,770 USD).

All in all, the Haval H5 looks like a bargain. Currently, there is no other SUV the size of a new H5 with the same price tag. It means that this SUV will possibly become a good seller domestically as it is aimed at young buyers who like to spend its free time in suburbs. We will keep an eye on the H5, so stay tuned!

  1. Man if they added even a small third row and kept the price competitive, that thing would sell like hotcakes in East Malaysia and Indonesia. Oh and bring the diesels. 🙂
