The Haval Jolion now offers a hybrid powertrain, giving the Chinese challenger brand a rival to the likes of the Toyota C-HR.
It’ll arrive in Australia in September.
The rest of the range hasn’t received any changes this year apart from a pair of consecutive $1000 price increases in January and April, with the company citing “external cost pressures that include shipping and supply”.
The range now opens at $28,490 drive-away for the Premium, and tops out at $40,990 drive-away for the Jolion Hybrid.
UPDATE, 16/08/2022 – GWM Haval Australia has released pricing and specifications for the Jolion Hybrid. We’ve updated this article and brought it forward.
Introduced in 2021, the small Jolion crossover is a replacement for the old H2.
Sharp drive-away pricing and a long feature list have helped fuel the Jolion’s growth – it bested the old H2’s entire 2020 sales tally – but GWM Haval Australia has also had far fewer supply issues than rival firms.
- 2022 Haval Jolion Premium: $28,490
- 2022 Haval Jolion Lux: $30,990
- 2022 Haval Jolion Ultra: $33,990
- 2022 Haval Jolion Hybrid: $40,990
All prices are drive-away
Power in the 2022 Haval Jolion comes from a 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, sending 110kW of power and 210Nm of torque to the front wheels.
It’s mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
The Jolion Hybrid also uses a 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine, albeit mated with Haval’s Dedicated Hybrid Transmission which comprises the electric motor and gearbox.
Outputs are 139kW and 375Nm.
Claimed fuel consumption for the 2022 Haval Jolion is 8.1L/100km on the combined cycle. The Haval Jolion drinks 91 RON regular unleaded.
The Jolion Hybrid uses 5.0L/100km on the combined cycle.
The Haval Jolion measures 4472mm long, 1841mm wide and 1574mm tall, with a 2700mm wheelbase.
That’s 107mm longer, 136mm taller and 27mm wider than its H2 predecessor, with a 140mm longer wheelbase.
It has a 430L boot, expanding to 1133L with the second row folded. Under the boot floor is a space-saver spare.
The 2022 Haval Jolion is backed by a seven-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty.
It requires servicing every 12 months or 15,000km. Haval includes five years of capped-price servicing, with the first five services costing $210, $250, $350, $450 and $290.
The Haval Jolion hasn’t been crash tested by ANCAP or Euro NCAP yet. Local ANCAP safety testing has been affected by COVID-19 lockdowns and market-related delays, and we don’t yet know when the Jolion will be tested.
