Haval H1 updated – gets new Android HU, alloy wheels

Go Automobile Manufacturing (Go Auto) has announced an update to its H1 SUV, now featuring a brand new double-din Android-based touchscreen head unit, as well as a sleeker 16-inch dual-tone alloy wheels with five Y-spoke design. The latter is only available on the range-topping Elite variant, though, and the rest get the same multispoke unit from before. There’s also a redesigned adjustable head restraint for the rear middle seat, which is standard across the board.

Apart from that, the car is pretty much unchanged. The Haval H1 is available in the same three flavours, starting with the base Comfort variant (RM59,748), Premium (RM65,583) and Elite (RM72,389). Included in the price (OTR) is a seven-year, unlimited mileage warranty.

Mechanically, the H1 is powered by a 1.5 litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine that makes 105 hp and 138 Nm of torque. Drive is sent to the front wheels via the sole six-speed automated manual transmission (AMT). You may refer to the full spec sheet in the gallery below.

Standard kit includes reflector halogen headlights, fog lights, roof rails, a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel, fabric seats, and reverse sensors. Safety-wise, all models come with ABS with EBD and brake assist, stability control and hill start assist.

The Premium model adds leather seats, GPS navigation, reverse camera, Battery Alert Sensor (BAS) and a rear-view mirror with integrated SmartTAG reader. Meanwhile, the Elite tacks on projector halogen headlights with LED positioning lights, LED daytime running lights, a centre front armrest, a digital video recorder (i.e. a dash cam) and window tint.
