China has been on the up and up when it comes to their cars. Geely’s interest in Proton has bestowed us the extremely good value, Geely Boyue-based Proton X70 for instance. But back home, the Boyue has a tough fight against the similarly-sized 2021 Haval H6.

Introduced in 2011, the H6 is China’s best-selling SUV with over three million units sold. Let’s take a look at the model and see how it stacks up, courtesy of these photos from Autohome.

Those extra concerned about safety would be pleased to note that the H6 is equipped with 14 radars and 6 cameras to support the car's automated emergency braking (AEB), adaptive cruise control and traffic sign recognition system among other driver assistance functions.

On the dash, there’s a full-colour head-up display above the digital instrument panel. A cool feature in the H6 though are the over-the-air (OTA) updates that can tweak more than 40 online functions and support hardware upgrades.

Driving the Haval is a 1.5-litre turbocharged engine making 169 PS, but four-wheel drive is not an option at the moment.

With the MG HS rumoured to launch its Malaysian offensive soon, are you open to yet another Proton X70 rival?
