Coupe version of the GWM Haval H6 SUV - H6x has been leaked via patent images. Read the complete report here.
Haval is a brand owned by Great Wall Motors, which is the largest carmaker in China. This Chinese brand made its presence in India at the 2020 Auto Expo. Also, it made an investment in the state of Maharashtra in the country, which is under a watch for now. The brand is planning to launch a coupe version of its premium mid-size SUV – H6 in China. The coupe version will be named as H6X, following the footsteps of the smaller F7 and F7X SUVs. The patent for the H6X was filed at CNIPA (China National Intellectual Property Administration), recently.
The patent images reveal a lot of information about the design cues of the Haval H6X. Starting from the front, it gets a similar radiator grille as the H6, and so is the case with the headlamps. The front bumper, however, is a redesigned affair and it now boasts of sharper cuts and creases. The fog lamp assemblies have been replaced with faux air vents. On the sides, one can spot the redesigned alloy wheels, and the roofline tapers down in a coupe-like fashion. To ensure that cabin does not feel claustrophobic; a bigger rear quarter glass has been added.
At the rear, things are way too flashy. The sloping roofline lends it with a coupe-like boot lid that also gets a pronounced lip spoiler. The connected tail lamps with a light bar in place give an idea of its width. Furthermore, the quad exhausts seen on the H6 are nowhere visible on the H6X. It gets a slim skid plate, instead.
Talking of the dimensions, they are likely to remain identical to the H6, which measures at 4,610 mm in length, 1,860 mm in width, and 1,720 mm in height. The wheelbase will be same as H6 at 2,690 mm. The H6X is expected to borrow the powertrain and drivetrain options from its conventional sibling – H6, which is offered with 2 engine options – 1.5L turbo-petrol and 2.0L turbo-petrol.
On the Haval H6, the 1.5L motor puts out a rated power output of 163 PS and max torque of 280 Nm. The 2.0L motor, on the other hand, churns out 190 PS of peak power and 340 Nm of peak torque. The transmission duties on both of these motors are performed by a 7-speed DCT only. The Haval H6X is likely to hit the showroom floors in the Chinese market by the end of this year.
