New Chinese mid-size SUV eyeing entry into India by 2021

  • The Haval F7 will likely be GWM’s debut product in India.

  • It is a well-equipped 5-seater mid-size SUV.

  • The global-spec F7 gets two turbo-petrol engines: 1.5-litre and 2.0-litre units, both with 7-speed DCT auto.

  • The Haval F7 features a panoramic sunroof, 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system and cruise control.

  • It would likely take on the likes of the MG Hector, Tata Harrier and Hyundai Tucson.

Great Wall Motors is showcasing a variety of models in its debut at Auto Expo 2020. The first one expected to be launched in India is the Haval F7 mid-size SUV. Unveiled globally in 2018, it would be a good competitor in the premium 5-seater SUV segment.

The Haval F7 will distinguish itself from segment rivals with its sporty design elements and sheer size. It has muscular character lines over both front and rear wheel arches. The rear end design features a body-coloured skid plate flanked by sporty vents and wrap-around tail lamps connected by a chrome strip. Up front, the F7 features a hexagonal grille with a honeycomb pattern, flanked by fog lamps with LED DRLs and a quad-headlamp design.

Here’s how its size compares to some of its future rivals in India:

Haval offers the F7 with two turbo-petrol engine options in select markets - a 1.5-litre unit and a 2.0-litre unit. Both engines are mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic with the choice of front-wheel-drive or 4WD with the larger engine. The 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine makes 150PS and 280Nm while the 2.0-litre petrol unit makes 190PS and 340Nm. Expect the India-spec model to get a manual transmission option and maybe a diesel engine too.

Great Wall Motors is scheduled to begin sales in India in 2021, likely with the Haval F7 mid-size SUV. It is expected to be priced between Rs 16 lakh and Rs 21 lakh.
