Boasting a coupe-like appearance hence the C designation, the H6 C, according to Haval, is claimed to rewrite any perceived notions of Chinese vehicles, with the automaker also claiming "superb perceived interior quality until" until now expected "from a Teutonic car".
Available in three trim levels with drive going to the front wheels, the H6 C makes use of a in-house developed 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol developing 140 kW and 310 Nm of torque, mated to either a six-speed manual or Getrag six-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Four-wheel drive is however a order only option.
