Haval H6, China’s Affordable Alternative to the VW Tiguan, Starting at $16,200
Auto News

Something is going on—or rather, going wrong—in Europe. How is it possible that China can produce a Tiguan-sized SUV with a starting price of just $16,200, while we in Europe are stuck with the dismal iteration that is the bloody awful Volkswagen Tiguan with a starting price of £36,000? And before you start making excuses, let’s acknowledge that, yes, the Chinese state does subsidize its car manufacturers. But those subsidies are minuscule compared to the hefty subsidies doled out by European and North American governments.

Since its launch in August 2011, the Haval H6 has exceeded 4 million vehicles in cumulative sales, according to GWM. Officially introduced to the Chinese market, the Haval H6 is priced between 117,900 and 143,900 yuan (approximately 16,200 to 19,800 USD), offering consumers a choice of five trims. A plug-in hybrid Hi4 variant will also be released later.

The new Haval H6 showcases two metallic exterior colors, Star Gold and Interstellar Gray, along with two pearlescent options, Star White and Star Vortex Black. All variants come with 19-inch rims as standard.

Buyers can opt between two engine configurations: a 1.5T and a 2.0T. The 1.5T engine delivers 135 kW (181 hp) and 275 Nm of torque, consistent with the previous high-power version, paired with a 7-speed DCT transmission in two-wheel drive format.

The 2.0T engine, now offering 175 kW (235 hp) (up from 155 kW), generates 385 Nm of torque, paired with a 9-speed DCT transmission, available in both two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive models. Fuel consumption is rated at 8.1L/100km.

Inside, the cabin features extensive soft-touch materials. The 10.25-inch infotainment system and digital driver binnacle are powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8155 chip. The infotainment software supports advanced voice recognition, HiCar, and ICCOA Carlink functionalities.

Additionally, the new Haval H6 boasts a new three-spoke steering wheel, a 9-inch full-color HUD display, 50W wireless charging, front seat heating and ventilation, and level 2 advanced driving assistance systems.
