Haval is the SUV brand for the uninitiated and the H2 is one of Haval ‘s cheapest models. Medium-sized SUVs which is slightly larger than Hyundai Creta. The first generation Haval H2 was released in 2014. And the 2021 H2 has been largely true to the Haval Concept H with regard to design. It’s no surprise.
Whereas the model’s styling is clearly toned down
The Concept H itself remains the large, chrome-paced mesh grid and LED projection headlights, with daily T-shaped LED lighting which merges with additional LED light guides vertically mounted in the front buoyancy.
The 19-inch wheels from the Concept H were substituted for dual-toned alloys of 18-inch, but the 2021 Haval H2, with its T-shaped LED taillights and a subtle rear diffuser, keep the concept’s muscle side profile.
The new H2 also has a design inside the Concept H dashboard and is centralized by an autonomous touchscreen. A panoramic sunroof, a heads-up display, and a rotary selector dial are also featured in the package.
The 2021 Haval H2 was not supported by the Great Wall. However, it has confirmed it’s based on the company’s modular Lemon platform. Built for sedans, SUVs, and MPVs that are between 4.2-5.1 meters in length.
