Undoubtedly one of the H1's main attractions, this crossover's cheeky looks are certain to make you the talk of the town and turn many heads. It is a very compact vehicle, with an overall length of less than four metres, but with an SUV-rivalling ground clearance of more than 180mm and stylish 16-inch alloy wheels, it certainly packs lots of attitude into those compact dimensions.
The H1 is powered by HAVAL's trusty 1,5-litre VVT engine that delivers 69kW at 6 000 rpm and 130 Nm of torque to the front wheels via a slick five-speed manual transmission. The engine features variable valve timing, benefitting not only performance but also fuel economy. The H1 sips fuel at the rate of 7,2 litres/100 km (combined cycle) depending on driving style and environment, with a CO2 emissions figure of 172 g/km.
The style and modern design continues inside, where the H1 boasts a sporty instrument cluster with overlapping dials and an integrated digital speedometer display. The facia design features a V-shaped centre section with neatly seperated control interfaces for the audio (including a large digital screen) and ventilation systems. Vertically slanted ventilation outlets are located either side of the centre hangdown section.
As is the case with all HAVAL vehicles, the H1 has been designed to meet global safety standards and boasts a comprehensive safety package. Dual front airbags and disc brakes all-round featuring ABS with EBD fitted standard. Isofix child-seat mountings are mounted at the rear and the front seatbelts are height-adjustable. The rear doors also feature child locks.
