haval m4

The Great Wall Haval M4 continues being teased on the Great Wall Malaysia website, and the company has listed down a brief spec sheet of the compact SUV.

As previously reported, the M4 – which measures in at 3,961 mm long, 1,728 mm wide and 1,617 mm tall, with a 2,383 mm-long wheelbase – will be sold here in two transmission variant forms both powered by a normally-aspirated 1.5 litre VVT MPI four-pot offering 105 hp at 6,000 rpm and 138 Nm at 4,200 rpm.

For certain, the five-speed manual will be in two-wheel drive guise, though it remains to be seen if the six-speed automatic will be in four-wheel drive as suggested earlier. As it goes, the manual is set to be the low-spec version, and the auto the high-spec one.

Aside from that, the little new info revealed states the M4 will be equipped with disc brakes for all four wheels and be shod with 16-inch wheels with 205/60 profile tyres. The M4 is assembled locally at the GWM plant in Gurun, Kedah.

The pricing hasn’t been revealed, but the teaser continues on in the same vein as that touted when first highlighted in January when a left-hand drive example first appeared in the Green Oranges showroom – the M4 should be priced under RM50k, with a ‘RM4x,xxx’ tag suggested by the teaser; this should be for the manual version.

Oh, and if you’re keen to win a free M4, there’s an upcoming competition giving you the chance to do so. Scheduled to take place next month, the challenge will involve squatting while putting a hand on the M4 for the longest possible time, and the last person standing will be rewarded with the SUV. If this sounds like the thing for you, then get more details through the GWM website.
