UPDATE, April 9: The 2021 Haval H6 is now on sale in Australia and the Chinese automaker has confirmed the price of the medium-size SUV's two top variants.
The middle-spec H6 Lux 2WD will start at $33,990 driveway, while the range-topping H6 Ultra will start at $36,990 driveaway for the front-wheel drive version and $38,990 driveaway for the four-wheel drive version.
Haval has also confirmed that all H6 SUVs will come with the automaker's seven-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty, and capped-price servicing will be available across the model range.
March 26: Haval has revealed details about its upcoming H6 SUV weeks before it's due to hit local showrooms in early April.
The medium-sized SUV will be available in three different guises from launch, with an entry-point H6 Premium model said to cost $30,990 drive-away.
The aggressive RRP is sure to heat things up in the small and medium-sized SUV market, with the H6 Premium beating out several of its competitors on price by thousands of dollars, such as Toyota's RAV4 GX ($36,916 drive-away) and Mazda's CX-5 Maxx ($32,990 drive-away).
The H6 Premium will also come laden with tech and features normally reserved for cars with a higher price tag.
Inside the new cabin owners will be able to enjoy a 10.25-inch colour LED digital dash, 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard.
Standard safety features are also prevalent in the H6 Premium, with the mid-size SUV offering seven airbags, autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian and bicycle detection, lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist, traffic-sign recognition, lane-change assist with blind-spot monitoring and a reverse camera.
The H6 middle-tier model, the “Lux”, will add further features such as a leather steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, adaptive cruise control with “stop and go” capability, intelligent cruise assist, 360-degree camera, eco-leather seats, and an eight-speaker DTS audio system.
The range-topping H6 Ultra will be available in both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. It will also score a panoramic sunroof, auto tailgate, 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment display, head-up display, wireless charging, heated steering wheel, four-way adjustable electric front seats with both heating and cooling, and an automatic parking assistant.
Powering the new H6 is a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, which produces 150kW and 320Nm – 5kW and 5Nm more than the outgoing H6.
Power will be sent to the front wheels (or all wheels in the Ultra) via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
WhichCar has reached out to confirm local pricing for the H6 Lux and Ultra, and we will update this story as soon as details become available.
