Haval H9 is under consideration for our market. Currently, the SUV is displayed at the 2020 Auto Expo along with other GWM models.
In 2020, the Indian automobile market will see the entries of several new foreign car brands. Haval, the largest SUV manufacturer in China, is also among these names. Great Wall Motor’s sub-brand, Haval, has showcased Haval H9 SUV at Auto Expo 2020. The decision to launch the vehicle is still under discussion though.
Compared to other competitors in the market, the Haval H9 is distinctively larger. It measures 4,856mm in length and 1,926mm in width. The height stands at 1,900mm while the wheelbase is 2,800 mm long, which could be translated into a roomy and highly comfortable interior space. With these dimensions, the Haval H9 has an advantage in size against other SUVs in the segment like Ford Endeavour, Toyota Fortuner, and Mahindra Alturas G4.
On the inside, the Haval H9 is well-equipped with a load of features, which will easily gain the car a big advantage over other rivals. The current model on sales in Chines flaunts some safety features like six airbags, front and rear parking sensors with rear camera, ABS with EBD, along with traction control, hill ascent and descent assist and electronic parking brake.
On the top-of-the-line variant, the Haval H9 is equipped with high-end features like automatic headlights, sunroof, LED DRLs, automatic wipers, adjustable leather-covered steering, massage seat with leather cover, eight-way power-adjustable driver seat, steering-mounted audio and cruise controls, keyless entry and go, and trio-zone automatic climate control. In terms of entertainment, the Haval H9 gets an 8.0-inch touchscreen system mated to a plush nine-speaker audio system. Other features like a rear trailer hitch, front winch and additional power outlets along with heated front and second-row seats and navigation are optional.
Like its competitors, the Haval H9 will get a 4WD system which comes with both high and low range. The China-spec model derives power from a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine which puts out a top power of 224PS and a peak torque of 324Nm. This engine comes with a standard 8-speed torque convertor automatic gearbox. If it launches in the Indian market, the Haval H9 will most likely get a diesel version alongside the current turbo-petrol engine.
