Haval ups H6 pricing by $1000
Mid-sized H6 SUV updated for 2022 with modest price increase across the range

HAVAL has applied a price hike of $1000 to all derivatives of its recently updated H6 midsize SUV due to “ongoing shipping- and supply-chain issues”. The range starts at $31,990 for the entry-grade Premium and tops out at $39,990 for the Ultra AWD (excluding on-road costs).
The second-generation H6, which joined Haval’s Australia portfolio earlier this year, is based on an all-new platform and sports a more muscular look than the outgoing model.
There are no changes to the appearance and specification of the MY22 range and the model is still powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine developing peak outputs of 150kW and 320Nm in combination with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
However, a petrol-electric hybrid version of the H6 is due to appear in Australian showrooms early next year. The model will feature a 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine coupled with a 130-kW two-speed electric motor powered by a 1.8-kWh battery pack.
Haval says the H6 Hybrid will have a combined system power output of 179kW/530Nm and an average fuel consumption figure of 5.2L/100km, which is about 2.2L/100km less than its most frugal petrol-powered model.
The Chinese importer says it is also “keen” on the H6S coupe-SUV, but has yet to confirm when – or indeed if – the model is slated for local showrooms.
The regular H6 line-up starts with the Premium derivative ($31,990 drive-away), which is equipped with 18-inch alloy wheels, LED lighting, a 10.25-inch digitised instrument panel and a same-sized infotainment touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, a reversing camera, rear parking sensors, as well as a tyre-pressure monitoring system.
The second-rung H6 Lux ($34,990 drive-away) additionally feature LED front fog lights, roof rails, a leather-clad steering wheel, heated Comfortek eco-leather seats, dual-zone climate control, an eight-speaker premium audio system, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, adaptive cruise control with Stop & Go functionality and a 360-degree camera.
The top-of-the-range Ultra (from $37,990 drive-away) is the only H6 derivative to be available in two- and all-wheel-drive guises. It comes with 19-inch alloys, a panoramic roof, automatic tailgate, a 12.3-inch infotainment screen, wireless phone charging, head-up display, heated and ventilated front seats, rear cross-traffic alert and self-parking.
The standard safety equipment line-up for the H6 range includes seven airbags, AEB with pedestrian- and cyclist detection, lane departure warning and -keep assist, traffic sign recognition, lane change assist, blind-spot monitoring, plus driver-fatigue monitoring.
The Haval H6 is unrated by the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP), but scored a five-star C-NCAP result in its home market.
Service intervals are set at 12 months/10,000km initially, with subsequent services spaced at 12 months/15,000km. The H6 is covered by a seven-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty, which includes five years’ roadside assistance and capped-price servicing.
The Haval H6 measures 4653mm in length, 1886mm in width, 1724mm in height and rides on a 2738mm wheelbase. It offers a braked towing capacity of 2000kg and provides between 600-1485 litres of cargo space, placing it in step with competitors such as the Hyundai Tucson and Nissan X-Trail.
Locally, the GWM Haval H6 competes in the SUV Medium (under $60,000) category where it ranks tenth with year-to-date sales of 2661 units.
The segment ladder to the end of October 2021 is as follows: Toyota RAV4 (30,933), Mazda CX-5 (22,030), Nissan X-TRAIL (11,634), Hyundai Tucson (11,608), Mitsubishi Outlander (11,597), Subaru Forester (9945), Kia Sportage (6428), Honda CR-V (5568) and Volkswagen Tiguan (3212).
