The new F-series brand Haval announced in the spring of 2018. As then stated in the company, this range is designed for customers in the age of 25-30 years. H series now positioned as “family”. It is curious that in China almost every crossover, Haval with the letter H is represented in two versions – with red and blue logo: “red” machines are considered just family, and “blue” is focused on youth. Anyway, in the line of F separation of the color will be. The firstborn of the new series was the “SUV” F5, its world premiere held in April at the Beijing auto show. And today, Haval has announced the release of the cross on the domestic market.

And the wheelbase models and does the same – 2680 mm. Probably, common platform crossovers: both front struts McPherson, rear – independent double wishbone suspension.
The motor is also General petrol “turboservice” 1.5 GDIT (factory index GW4B15) with a power of 169 HP (285 Nm). The engine is combined with seven-speed automatic transmission with two wet clutches. Drive and F5 and H6 of the second generation – only forward (from the first “six” is all-wheel drive version). For H6, a new generation is still a “turboservice” 2.0 (index GW4C20, 197 HP, 345 Nm), but this motor Haval F5 is not yet laid.
