It's not a secret for anyone that in recent years, Russian motorists, before buying a car, have to assess their cars for safety without fail. That is why manufacturers have concentrated special efforts on the production of cars that can save the life of the driver and passengers in a serious accident, and Haval is no exception.
The Chinese manufacturer offers its new crossover Haval Jolion 2022 with numerous systems responsible for driving control. The equipment of this model includes six airbags, three-point belts with tensioners and clips, fastenings for ISOFIX child seats. In addition, it should be noted that this cross showed good results in crash tests. In this regard, the model was in no way inferior to its direct and more expensive competitors. The exact information on crash tests on the network has not yet been presented, but the manufacturer assures that this vehicle fully complies with all safety requirements.
Handling and off-road performance
Since we are talking about a standard crossover, presented not only in front-wheel drive, but also in all-wheel drive versions, special attention should be paid to the off-road characteristics of the car. In this regard, it cannot be said that the "Chinese" grabs a star from the sky and stands out strongly against the background of competitors. Rather, the situation is different. The cross feels good on dirt roads, and can also demonstrate something off-road. However, one must take into account the fact that this is not a frame SUV and it is simply not able to cope with serious obstacles on its way.
If we talk about handling, then it is at a high level. The car holds the road perfectly, regardless of the speed, obediently reacts to the steering wheel, and in addition, forgives the driver some minor mistakes and does not notice small artificial irregularities on its way.
Advantages and disadvantages
In order to decide whether this car is worth choosing as a future purchase or not, you need to pay attention to the main advantages and disadvantages of the cross. Preliminarily, the main advantages are highlighted among them:
- the most attractive cost among "classmates";
- rich technical equipment;
- inexpensive crossover maintenance;
- a variety of models in terms of configuration and power unit;
- spectacular appearance and thoughtful interior design;
- full compliance with the requirements of the Euro-5 environmental standard.
Along with the advantages, it is also possible to highlight some obvious disadvantages, namely: not the best quality of finishing materials, a power unit that is rather weak by modern standards, and the absence of some currently relevant options.
Perhaps it will be difficult to disagree with the statement that appearance is the strongest side of the new Chinese crossover. Haval Jolion looks stylish and attractive not only from the front, but along the entire perimeter. The manufacturer has provided for the use of non-standard geometry for some body elements, which made it possible to make in reality a stylish and effective crossover, which is maximally focused on the young part of motorists. Most of all, the attention is drawn to the unusual optics of the car. This applies to the rear lights with an unusual shape, as well as front DRLs, which are located vertically.
If you pay attention to the layout of the cabin of this model, then it will be difficult to be surprised at something if the motorist has already encountered Haval cars before. The interior is still practical and minimalist, with key controls well positioned. There are no numerous luxury elements inside the car, but on the other hand, the competent implementation of high-tech components is provided. The salon is made mainly in dark shades, which once again indicates that the crossover belongs to the budget segment of the market.
The Chinese car Haval Jolion can be called a novelty in the car market as a whole. This cross was not so long ago presented in China and has already managed to reach Russia. For the first time this model was presented to the public in April 2020. Free sales in Russia started in May 2021. The cross is now available to potential buyers in the first generation.
Mid-size crossovers are especially popular with car enthusiasts, so it shouldn't be surprising that this model has many serious competitors. Among them, it is worth highlighting:
- Kia Sportage;
- Hyundai Tucson;
- Mazda CX-5;
- Volkswagen Tiguan.
