For a long time, compact urban SUVs have come into fashion, therefore, it should not be surprising that a real fierce struggle for each potential buyer unfolded in this class. This segment of the market is saturated with numerous options, and yet, one of them stands out more. We are talking about Hawal H2 2022, which can now be found on sale in the secondary market in Russia or in China. The model is a direct competitor to Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Volkswagen Taos and Mazda CX-30. On sale you can find cars in several basic configurations with a price tag of 848,000 - 1,224,000 rubles for the generation of Elite and Lux, respectively, translated into domestic currency.
"Chinese" Hawal H2 2022 can be found on sale in interesting trim levels and at an affordable price, however, most of all, this model will be able to please its future owner with technical characteristics and appearance (you can evaluate the design of the car from the photo attached to the article). It is worth noting that the main parameters of the cross in the new body differ somewhat depending on which modification was chosen.
At the moment, the cross is equipped with only a 1.5-liter gasoline turbocharged engine with 150 horsepower and 210 N * m of torque. This setting is quite enough for the car to boast good dynamics. The motor can be paired with a classic 6-speed "mechanics" or with a 7-band "robot". On sale you can find both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive variations.
The main advantage of a car is its moderate fuel consumption. On average, for every 100 km of track in the combined cycle, the "Chinese" will spend about 7, 0 - 9, 0 liters of fuel. Consumption is noticeably higher in all-wheel drive versions. By default, the 42-liter tank will have to be filled with AI-95 gasoline or fuel with a higher octane number. It is noteworthy that in the first generation, in terms of harmful emissions into the atmosphere, this car meets the requirements of the Euro-5 environmental standard.
The five-seater compact cross-country has standard dimensions for its market segment. In length, this car reaches 4,335 mm, in width 1,814 mm, in height 1,695 mm. The model has a standard wheelbase of 2,560 mm and a ground clearance of 184 mm, both in front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive versions. The curb weight of the SUV is 1 570 - 1 650 kg, depending on the type of drive. The SUV has an average trunk volume of 300 liters.
Options and prices
The SUV from the Middle Kingdom can be found on sale in several generations, including the most affordable Elite version and the most expensive Lux modification. At the same time, a similar combination of circumstances could be observed from the very beginning, as soon as the first production samples were in dealerships. The price tag for the model ranges from 848,000 to 1,224,000 rubles. Moving between versions, the equipment of the car does not change so noticeably, therefore, attention should be paid to the "base", as well as to the maximum configuration.
In the "base" the Chinese SUV Hawal H2 2022 can be bought for 848,000 rubles on front-wheel drive and with a manual 6-speed gearbox. The equipment of the car by the manufacturer included such options as:

In comparison with the "classmates", this "Chinese" already in the "base" has numerous systems that are responsible for traffic control and safety of the driver and passengers. Also, an incomplete spare wheel has been added to the SUV equipment.
In this generation, you can choose a SUV in any design, including with "mechanics" and all-wheel drive. This car is maximally estimated in dealerships at 1,224,000 rubles.

Although in the case of Haval H2 2022 we are talking about another "state employee", in terms of safety, the car surpasses many "classmates". The model took part in C-NCAP crash tests and was able to score good results. The overall assessment of the SUV corresponds to the "Five Stars" rating. When tested, the cross scored 55, 7 points. It is worth recalling that this crash test provides an assessment of several main areas. We are talking about a frontal impact with 100% overlap - the result is 87%. Frontal collision with 40% overlap is 78%. Side impact - the result is 100%. Impact from behind - the result is 100%.
Handling and off-road performance
This "Chinese" is not an SUV, but is an ordinary compact SUV. The main reference point of the model to the city. Here, the crossover shows its best side and demonstrates excellent handling. The "Chinese" can easily compete in this respect, both with the "Koreans" and with the "Japanese", and in some moments will certainly come out the winner. As for the off-road, you can get here only on all-wheel drive generations, and even then, not counting on a confident ride through serious obstacles in its path. The possibilities of the cross are more consistent with dirt roads, as well as rough terrain. Here, the SUV will not allow the driver to worry and face problems when crossing even the largest pit. The advantage of the SUV is, without a doubt, a short wheelbase, which does not interfere with confidently overcome various pits and bumps.
Advantages and disadvantages
This is not to say that the Haval H2 2022 SUV is good in everything or, on the contrary, has a fair amount of flaws. Rather, things are different and the model, by the standard, has its advantages and disadvantages. The main advantage is the price. For that kind of money, it is quite difficult to find a “classmate” that matches the characteristics.
At the same time, the service of the "Chinese" cannot be called affordable. In this regard, there are models that are cheaper to maintain. It can be noted the presence of various kinds of modifications, but at the same time, only one uncontested turbocharger motor catches the eye. For example, almost all "classmates" have alternative attitudes, which makes it easier for buyers to make a choice. The obvious disadvantages include a small trunk. Despite this, the SUV received a fairly spacious five-seater interior.
Traditionally, this Chinese car has a bright and memorable design. The technical side of the crossover is not as memorable as the exterior and interior decoration. In this regard, the cross has definitely surpassed a number of "classmates". The abundance of chrome on the front part indicates the serious status of the SUV, and does not correspond to the budget price in any way. At the front, there are massive headlights, emphasizing the brutality of a small car.
Salon "Chinese" is made with an idea for the future. It is already dominated by high-tech elements and a non-standard approach to the layout. Bright decorative inserts complement the style, although some motorists may find them out of place.
In the current version, the Haval H2 was presented to the public back in 2013, and almost immediately the free sales of the SUV started. The crossover reached the Russian market at the end of 2015 and was sold for five years. During this time, many motorists were able to appreciate the model. Now the cross can be found on the secondary market in Russia or on free sale in China.
Despite its budgetary cost, the SUV can be called a direct competitor for:
- Mazda CX-30;
- Hyundai Creta;
- Kia Seltos;
- Volkswagen Taos.
