The first shipments of the All-New Haval Jolion SUV are about to arrive into New Zealand. The Jolion will be available in two grades initially, the mid-grade Lux and range-topping Ultra.

Completely new from the ground up and like its larger sibling the new H6, the All-New Haval Jolion sits on the company’s new global lightweight modular platform.

Power is delivered to the front wheels by a re-engineered 1.5 litre turbo petrol engine with 110kW of power and 210Nm of torque mated to a 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT). Four different drive modes are available on demand to cater for various driving conditions – Standard, Eco, Sport and Snow.

Haval says the Jolion has been benchmarked against the best-selling global SUVs which has resulted in a wheelbase of 2700mm, length of 4472mm and width of 1841mm.

Technology includes a colour LED instrument cluster, Heads Up Display, camera-based fatigue monitoring and wireless phone charging available.

Safety also remains a priority according to Haval, with Autonomous Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist, Blind Spot Monitoring, Adaptive Cruise Control, Traffic Sign Recognition and Rear Cross Traffic Alert standard across the range.

GWM Head of Marketing & Communications, Steve Maciver said “There’s certainly a lot happening at GWM at the moment. To now confirm the imminent arrival of the All-New Haval Jolion, followed closely by the All-New H6, is indicative of the progress that our brand is making. With two brand new SUV options that are loaded with technology, safety and value, there has never been a better time for buyers to consider HAVAL.”

The All-New HAVAL Jolion is the second of the new HAVAL SUV line-up to be conceived by world-renowned designer Phil Simmons.

Produced in GWM’s new state-of-the-art production facility in Taizhou, near Shanghai, the Jolion is an important strategic model in realizing the company’s international growth ambitions.

Full specifications, features and pricing will be disclosed at a later date.

How on earth to start this? I've been car/bike/truck crazy since I was a teen. Like John, I had the obligatory Countach poster on the wall. I guess I'm more officially into classic and muscle cars than anything else - I currently have a '65 Sunbeam Tiger that left the factory the same day as I left the hospital as a newborn with my mother. How could I not buy that car? In 2016 my wife and I drove across the USA in a brand-new Dodge Challenger, and then shipped it home. You can read more on We did this again in 2019 in a 1990 Chev Corvette - you can read about that trip on DriveLife. I'm a driving instructor and an Observer for the Institute of Advanced Motorists - trying to do my bit to make our roads safer.
