Launched in South Africa in August 2018 at the Kyalami Festival of Motoring, the H9 immediately began turning heads, stealing the show and the hearts of many in attendance.

Haval H9 named as semi-finalist in prestigious Cars.co.za consumer awards
  • Luxury features
  • Competitive pricing
  • Impressive performance

11 September 2018, Midrand - Scarcely a month after its introduction to the local market, the Haval H9 has been named as one of only five semi-finalists in the Adventure SUV category of the 2018 Cars.co.za consumer awards.

Haval is shaking up the local automotive sector with its rapid growth, and the H9 is the fifth luxury SUV model in the Haval range to be launched in less than 18 months.

In under two years the company has grown from three dealerships in South Africa to 31, and this is the second Haval to be nominated for a Cars.co.za consumer award in as many years - last year the H2 made the semi-finalist list in the Compact Family category.

According to Charles Zhao, Managing Director of Haval Motors South Africa, "These awards are a true test, as they combine public opinion with that of recognised motoring experts. With our H9 in the running this year (and the H2 being nominated last year), it's a clear indication that our customers, the general public, and the experts all recognise the value and capability of our vehicles. There's no better testimony."

Haval Motors South Africa launches new H9
  • Fearless attitude and performance
  • Space and safety
  • Comfort and style
  • 30 August 2018, Midrand - Haval, the professional SUV division of GWM, is breaking new ground with the introduction of its first four-wheel drive model on local shores.

    Joining the South African range of its two-wheel drive small SUV derivatives, the 1.5-litre H1, H2 and H6, the large 7-seater H9 is powered by a 180 kW 2.0 Litre petrol turbo also found in the H6C.

    Haval is making huge strides on the South African family SUV market after the brand's local introduction just over a year ago.

    "Haval arrived in South Africa back in May 2017 and we started 12 months ago with just three Haval dealers," says Charles Zhao, Managing Director of Haval Motors South Africa. "By the end of June 2018 we had no less than 29 Haval dealers' countrywide thanks to full factory back-up from our parent company in China."

    The H9 is the fifth luxury SUV model in the Haval range to be launched in South Africa in less than 18 months.

    "Our objective is to have 35 Haval dealers across the country by the end of this year," says Zhao. "The arrival of our long awaited H9 is the latest addition to our powerful SUV range and will certainly assist us in expanding into the local market.

    The big new seven-seater H9 has outperformed some much more expensive rivals in other right-hand drive markets, and drew high praise from judges in Australia's coveted 4x4 awards in 2017, calling it "a machine rugged enough to survive the Australian outback".
