A head-turner on the road

With its elegant styling, aesthetic interior as well as intelligent connectivity, the all-new Haval H6 adopts a futuristic and sophisticated design suitable for the “new age elitist”.

The H6’s razor-sharp appearance with the sleek and bold waistline of the exterior is inspired by a fusion of Asian and European influences, starting from the crisp curves to the minimalist elegance of the interior, resulting from the works of world-class designers and encapsulating the design philosophy of ‘Futuristic Simplicity’.

Also making the H6 a head-turner on the road is the attractive avant-garde front grille, complemented with LED DRL headlamps as well as LED strip taillights, in addition to the vortex rims fitted on the tyres.

Equipped with a 4G intelligent connected system, the H6 features intelligent voice, online navigation, and intelligent remote control, to name a few, which makes driving safer and more convenient, greatly enriching the users’ pleasant driving experience.

The comfort of driving comes as a standard in the H6. The aerodynamic angles of its panels to the ergonomic curves of the seats and the power-adjustable, including the temperature-controlled seats beneath the spectacular panoramic sunroof (on selected models) all provide unparalleled comfort to drivers and passengers alike.

Different driving modes available in the H6

Regardless of the road conditions, travelling in the H6 calls for smoother drives with its seamless gear changes, providing a smooth and responsive performance credited to its dynamic four-wheel drive system and seven-speed DCT (dual clutch transmission).

Connecting to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto maps is the state-of-the-art LED instrument cluster that also delivers lane departure warnings through a crystal-clear screen, where the 10.3-inch digital display’s theme can be changed to own preference, while the 12.3-inch Infotainment display is conveniently located at the centre of the dashboard.

The interior highlights would also include the wireless charging hub and the rotary gear shift knob which, unlike the usual gears fitted to cars, conveniently lets you change gears just by gently rotating the knob and you are all set to go on your comfortable ride.

The Haval H6 was awarded five stars in the Australiasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) Safety Rating (2022). Adhering to the vehicle manufacturing concept of “safety first”, Haval aims to produce the safest SUV, establishing the design concept of “passenger and driver, pedestrian and vehicle safety three-dimensional protection (3DP)”.

This is why the all-new H6 delivers a full array of active and passive safety features that come in as standard such as traffic jam assist, a 360-degree camera, adaptive cruise control, automated parking assist, automated reverse assist and 6+2 Omni Direction SRS airbags.

The driver is also able to change the driving mode setting using the digital display, specifically between normal, eco, sports and snow (or slippery roads due to wet weather for Brunei) modes.

In terms of performance, the third generation of the H6 is fitted with a 2.0 turbo inline-four petrol engine, smart 4WD system (for the 4WD models) and 2nd Generation 7-DCT 9 wet clutch offering a maximum power of 150kW (HP202) and maximum torque of 320 Nm.

Authorised dealer Berjaya Sdn Bhd has brought in all the four different specs of the all-new H6 into the Sultanate, namely the 2WD Pro and Max as well as the 4WD Supreme and Ultra, with the latter being the high spec model.
