Meet the Haval H6 - possibly a cooler, better-looking Proton X70 competitor? 01

The Proton X70 is a fantastic car in most regards, and one might easily think its Geely Boyue donor car would be a runaway success in China. Not quite - the 2021 Haval H6 easily tips that balance.

The Chinese love it: Haval shifted 52,734 units of the H6 in October 2020. Geely meanwhile sold 46,040 SUVs across their entire range in the same period.

Seen at the currently-ongoing 2020 Guangzhou Autoshow, it's cuts a handsome figure. It's definitely shoutier than the Boyue/X70, thanks in part to its front fascia that features a large, imposing grille as its centrepiece. 

Guaranteed to make lane-hoggers move out of the way quicky.

The good looks continue behind, with an LED lightbar and chrome boot trim.

Inside, there's a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a fully-digital instrument cluster. There's a total of four different two-tone colour combinations for the interior.

The uncluttered interior already looks great, but the rotary-dial gear selector adds a touch more class to the cabin.

A 1.5-litre, turbocharged inline-four engine drives the H6. Power and torque are rated at 168 PS/285 Nm respectively, sent to the front wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic (DCT).

The H6 as seen in September at the Beijing Automotive Exhibition 2020.

In Malaysia, Haval isn't doing very well, with only three models offered (H1, H2 and H9). What do you think - can the H6 turn Haval's fortunes if it's offered here?
