New Haval H2 2020 pricing and specs detailed: More equipment added as City grade departs

Haval Australia has given its H2 line-up a MY20 shake-up, deleting the small SUV’s entry-level City grade and adding more standard equipment to the carryover mid-range Premium and flagship Lux variants.

As such, the Hyundai Kona-rivalling H2 is now priced from $22,990 driveaway – $3000 higher than before – following the removal of the $19,990 manual and $20,990 automatic City.

That said, the automatic-only Premium and Lux cost the same as before, with the latter checking in at $25,990.

A Haval Australia spokesperson told CarsGuide that the previous “three-tier line-up did not provide any tangible consumer benefits over a two-tier structure”.

The MY20 H2 features redesigned front and rear fascias, while Apple CarPlay support has been introduced across its range.

The Lux also picks up LED headlights and a panoramic sunroof as part of the facelift.

As before, standard equipment in the Premium includes 18-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, front and rear foglights, keyless entry and start, a 7.0-inch touchscreen multimedia system and a reversing camera.

Meanwhile, the Lux goes a step further with heated front seats and Comfort-Tek leather upholstery, among other features.

The H2 is motivated by a 1.5-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine that produces 110kW of power and 210Nm of torque.

A six-speed torque-converter automatic transmission now exclusively sends drive to the H2’s front wheels.

All H2s come with a seven-year/100,000km warranty and five years of roadside assistance.
