Go Auto has launched the locally-assembled Haval H2. The CKD Haval H2 is priced at RM98,950 for the Comfort spec and RM101,950 for the Premium variant, on the road including insurance. It is already on display at 14 Haval showrooms across the country. Go Auto has plans to export the CKD H2 to Batam in Indonesia and Cambodia.

The specifications of the CBU H2 – launched in May 2016 – has been maintained for the CKD version, but the base manual Standard model has been dropped for local assembly, leaving just Comfort and Premium trim levels. The CKD H2 comes with a new wheel design and a new “Haval Blue” exterior colour.

The Haval H2 is powered by a 1.5 litre turbocharged engine with 147 hp and 210 Nm of torque from 2,200 to 4,500 rpm. The boosted four-pot is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission.

Equipment include auto headlamps and wipers, a sunroof, LED daytime running lights, front fog lamps, keyless entry with push start, multifunction meter panel, steering wheel buttons, dual-zone automatic air con and a six-way electrically adjustable driver’s seat.

For safety, six airbags, reverse sensors and camera, a tyre pressure monitoring system, ESP and front active headrests are standard. The Premium gets two-tone leather upholstery as opposed to all-black leather.

Haval’s distributor is now offering a “Buy Back Guarantee” scheme to ensure its buyers get back 50% resale value should the car be resold to the company within five years. Terms and conditions apply, of course.
