Our tackle the model new GWM Haval H6 ULTRA

The current launch of Great Wall Motor’s 2021 Haval H6 ULTRA Hybrid SUV in Thailand, has definitely set automotive lovers’ tongues wagging. Around three months ago, GWM announced it might be introducing the brand new H6 Haval ULTRA (the top model for the Thai range) with an accompanying theme of ‘It’s Time to CHANGE.’
The SUV is a real hybrid, together with an electric motor and a turbo-charged petrol backup.
Along with the theme, the H6 ULTRA’s value has been set at 1,249,000 baht, which is a great deal for a car in this class, given that it comes with all the newest tech toys and finishes. The launch is also being supported by the Premier Deal marketing campaign, which features a 1.79% rate of interest for as a lot as 48-month financing, a 1-year complete car insurance (only for October 2021), and other perks that complete over one hundred,000 baht. And, here at The Thaiger, we couldn’t resist attempting out the brand new SUV from China (but assembled in Thailand) amidst all the thrill about this new entry into the mid-sized SUV market.
Up entrance, The Thaiger was taken by surprise by this new SUV, an adaption of an earlier mannequin. The entire electric/petrol drive system was fully seamless in the driving of the car.
Checking out the H6 ULTRA’s specifications, it is clear that its opening price and lengthy standard options are right on par with other automobiles in its vary. Moreover, the operating prices are additionally quite low, making it a great SUV for long hauls. In actuality, the H6 ULTRA’s value is at the decrease finish of the medium-range SUV’s across the board. But, its competition is fierce, with the The Toyota RAV4, Mazda CX-5, Hyundai Tucson, Kia Sportage, Honda CR-V, Ford Escape and relative newcomer MG HS, all neck to neck with one another.
But there are a few minor drawbacks concerning the GWM (Great Wall Motors) Haval ULTRA, however they don’t appear to be deal breakers. For instance, flooring the accelerator, the engine, or engines, appear to work harder than regular. There’s still loads of grunt.
The 7-speed gear box, along with the car’s intelligent electronics, seamlessly combine the two engines so that you’re by no means really conscious of whether you’re operating on battery or petrol. Lastly, although Thailand has some of the best roads in Southeast Asia (and a number of of the worst), the H6’s suspension tune still transmits a little bit of street noise. Luckily, when you plan to drive this automobile in Thailand, the highways are principally pretty clean.
Taking the car for a spin reveals that the ride is clean, while overtaking is barely sluggish. However, it’s as much as par with other SUV’s in the mid-range category – none of them are sports vehicles. Drivers additionally get a spread of facilities to assist them in their journeys.
Safety Features:
The SUV’s exterior is that of fashionable, sharp, and appealing. The 19 inch permit wheels, panoramic sunroof and electrical tailgate definitely add to its attractiveness. Moreover, the chrome exterior trim livens things up, along with a full-width LED mild bar on the rear. Compared to different vehicles, the H6’s exterior definitely is up there with the newest developments in modernity and elegance.
Inside, the cabin is fashionable, without compromising comfortability. However, the trim contained in the car may be very natty with a metallic-looking plastic characteristic strip on the base mannequin, with the option of silver or ‘rose gold’ (on the highest model). Itemized suppose it will look better in a faux-timber look or simply in a matte-black. You’re either going to like the faux metallic trim or not.
The 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster is a good amenity for a automobile of this vary. Furthermore, the 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen also bumps up the ULTRA’s status. However, to regulate the fan speed or temperature, you have to use the touchscreen, which might be troublesome when driving. And, the SUV doesn’t appear to cater to Android customers, as it solely options Apple CarPlay however not Android Auto.
The ULTRA contains a heated steering wheel, electrical exterior mirrors and seats, making it nice for colder climates. The passenger seat is also well-equipped by being electrically adjustable in four methods. A wi-fi smartphone charging outlet, ambient cabin lighting, anti-glare rear-view mirror and rear privateness glass also add to the functionality of the interior. And, storage for all of your anticipated items to be lugged around, is kind of expansive.
The entrance seats are noticeably plush and extra comfortable than the previous model of the H6, whereas the second row can be quite comfy. Families can be positive to have backseat entry to 2 USB retailers, air vents, and a fold-down armrest with cupholders. Moreover, the second row features a stunning quantity of head and leg room, beating out the RAV4 and CX-5. The luggage space consists of 600L if you’re using the second row, while increasing to 1485L upon folding the second row seats down.
We loved the get together trick of self-parking, voice management on many of the automobiles accessories and features, the simplicity of the 3 shows and lack on knobs and switches. There’s not even a gear stick or parking brake, swapping them out for a simple turning knob and a fast flick switch to park the car.
We additionally beloved the shortage of a spare wheel and the system they’d put in to get you to the following town… you’ll have to watch our YouTube story to see how it works.
