Motorists who are looking to buy a vehicle that offers excellent value for money need to look no further than the Haval Jolion which has been a runaway success since its local launch in 2021.

Haval is expanding on the success of the Jolion with the launch of the Jolion S which features the latest generation 1,5-litre engine as well as a variety of sporty touches, while still offering exceptional value for money.

Sporty styling

Like its stablemates the Jolion S boasts LED headlamps upfront alongside cool looking daytime driving lamps, while the rear LED lights are equally expressive. Styling enhancements include a unique front grille that boasts a black honeycomb pattern. Several unique blacked out styling elements like the front and rear bumper garnish, side mirror caps, door beadings and roof rails add to the sporty appeal. The 18-inch alloy wheels have also been given the gloss black treatment to round off the overall sporty appearance.

Premium interior

The Jolion S features the same impressive interior and high levels of standard specification as the Jolion Super Luxury. Interior specification includes paddle shifters behind the eco-leather multi-function steering wheel, a seven-inch colour instrument cluster, wireless charging, a front 12-volt power outlet and USB ports as well as a dashcam power outlet. Infotainment needs are well catered for thanks to a 12.3-inch multimedia touch screen display that incorporates Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto functionality. Other notable features include a head up display, a tyre pressure monitoring system, park distance control with a 360-degree parking camera, adaptive cruise control, a large panoramic sunroof, electrically adjustable seats, keyless entry with stop start and front seat warmers.

The cabin with its sporty leather upholstery is not only attractive but also offers excellent levels of comfort and space with rear legroom especially impressive for an SUV in this sector of the market. Boot space is comparable to its main rivals, while the rear seats fold down in a 60:40 configuration, to expand the luggage carrying capacity when needed.

Impressive performance

The Jolion S is fitted with a new generation 1.5-litre engine that features an upgraded turbocharger. The results in increases of 25kW and 60Nm compared to the standard Jolion, resulting in maximum power of 130kW and 270Nm.

The engine is mated to a smooth shifting Dual Clutch Transmission that drives the front wheels and has been specifically programmed to keep the engine in the sweet spot in terms of performance. A unique feature in this segment is the addition of a launch control function that allows drivers to extract the maximum performance from the drivetrain when accelerating from standstill. The driver is also able to tailor the driving experience by means of four driving models as well as three steering modes.

Safety guaranteed

The Haval Jolion is also comprehensively specced in the safety department and features a wide variety of safety equipment. This includes front, side and curtain airbags, ABS brakes with EBD, Electronic stability control, Hill Assist, Lane Departure Alert, Lane Keeping Assist, Blind Spot detection, traffic sign recognition and driving fatigue detection. The Jolion S is also fitted with pre-collision warning and automatic emergency braking.

Excellent value for money

Currently the Haval Jolion offers some of the best bang for buck as there are very few vehicles that offer similar levels of quality, standard features, safety equipment as well as space and practicality at the price. Those motorists who wish to combine value for money with a bit more performance and sportier looks will love the Jolion S.

Peace of mind

The Haval Jolion is sold with a five-year/60 000km service plan and a five-year/100 000km warranty.
