The flagship Haval SUV at the time of the Chinese brand's local launch, the H9 was pitched as a large-size off-road competitor for the likes of Toyota's LandCruiser Prado.
The H9 came standard with a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder pumping out 160kW of power and 324Nm of torque, but the powertrain was only available in petrol guise.
Haval released the H9 with third-row seats, roof rails, side steps, Bluetooth connectivity, keyless entry and start, satellite navigation, an 8.0-inch touchscreen and a nine-speaker audio system all as standard.
