Wise old heads often say your first love is your best love – exactly what Haval is aiming for with the launch of the Jolion mid-size SUV that effectively replaces the H2.
Jolion is the Chinese word for ‘first love’ and the Phil Simmonds design certainly catches the eye with its futuristic look accentuated by the front and rear LED Vison tail lamps extending into the styling lines. The Split Design Day time running lamps add to the futuristic appeal. Chrome finished accents from the diffuser to the branded side garnish add to the overall elegance.
The interior feel is premium and sporty, and every element, much like that of a fighter pilots’ cockpit, is ergonomically interconnected and easily with reach of the driver. There is even a place under the gear shifter for a handbag or laptop.
Todays Urban lifestyle demands we embrace technology like never before and so does Jolion. The centre console houses a Rotary Dial shifter in Auto models. This design saves space in the cabin but also adds to this new need urban lifestyle technology era.
This, together with the Electronic parking brake, wireless charging station, floating 12,3-inch infotainment and smart touch panel add to the cabin ergonomics.
