New Haval H2 SUV Facelift 2020 steals the limelight in SA

Since the first iteration of the Haval H2 was launched in South Africa in May 2019, this brawny SUV has succeeded in gaining unprecedented market share in a highly saturated auto segment that is notoriously hard to break into. In fact, in 2019, the H2 boasted the second-best sales volume in the small SUV category for the third quarter of this year.

But wait, that’s not all! In 2020, the all-new H2 will be making its way to South African shores and the reimagined version of the SUV that broke previously unshakeable boundaries is poised to shake things up even further when it replaces the current model at the end of the first quarter. The new model was recently unveiled on SA soil at the Festival of Motoring, presented by WesBank at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit from the 22nd to the 25th August, and caused quite a stir.

So, what can SA motorists look forward to? Here’s a basic breakdown:


  • Four derivatives, available in manual and automatic, with a choice of three trim levels (base, City and Luxury).
  • A revised front grille with impressive arrow-shaped lights, as well as updated front and rear bumpers.
  • A new 5 spoke star design to complement the existing 18-inch wheels for a more dynamic look.
  • CarPlay as standard feature across the range as well as a sunroof in all models (panoramic available in the luxury trim).
  • And more!
