Jili Atlas and Haval F7. What to choose from Chinese crossovers Fox rules

youth exterior

The novelty seems to be like a “youthful brother” – a compact crossover Haval F5. It’s the embodiment of an idea known as HB-02, introduced to the general public in 2016. The primary model options of the Haval F7:

  • three-dimensional radiator grille with six faces,
  • optics of an uncommon design (authentic kind wherein some construction is captured),
  • sharp edges and swift strains,
  • protruding again,
  • chrome inserts on prolonged taillights.

The whole set of the Haval F7 automobile is supplied with 17 and 19 inch alloy wheels. The looks of the Hawal F7 is distinguished by harmonious integrity: all exterior parts are completely mixed with one another, forming the picture of a chic highly effective automobile with a dynamic character.


Lets go, fairly woman, to journey?

A two-liter engine with barely blurred reactions will let you rapidly choose up velocity and confidently keep in visitors. The robotic works “like everybody else”, generally kicks in metropolis visitors jams, generally strikes as much as the following gear up early – apparently, it’s making an attempt to save lots of gasoline.

The steering within the near-zero zone has a fairly massive (not probably the most trendy) gear ratio, subsequently, when turning ninety levels, the steering wheel needs to be turned at elevated angles (not very sporty). Nevertheless, such a “character trait” doesn’t trigger any issues, you rapidly get used to it. The steering wheel is mild, historically for Chinese language vehicles, as a result of it lacks a little bit (not crucial) data content material. Though on a suburban freeway, with rising velocity, the steering wheel is stuffed with heaviness.

Suspension dense, with a declare to sportiness. Good for good roads, though it’s a little bit harsh on bumps, it received’t make your enamel chatter.

By way of dealing with and habits, you’ll be able to price it as “good” fairly than “mediocre”. However, the automobile, regardless of its sporty look, is targeted on a quiet journey with out aggressive maneuvering. Capable of simply speed up above 130 km / h, whereas holding the highway properly.

The brakes are barely viscous, tolerable within the metropolis, however by trendy requirements will not be efficient sufficient for top speeds, subsequently, on the freeway, they distinction with the sporty look of the automobile.

On variations with a one and a half liter engine within the 4WD model, it’s attainable to forcibly flip off the rear axle drive – we imagine with the intention to avoid wasting gasoline. Nevertheless, vehicles with a two-liter engine are disadvantaged of such a possibility. In our opinion, on this method the producer protects the entrance wheel drive from overload.

Rivals and competitiveness of the mannequin

We have now already named opponents within the home market, and within the exterior market, the Chinese language mid-size Haval F7 must compete with the next fashionable European fashions:

  • Toyota Fortuner,
  • Kia Mohave, Kia Sorento,
  • Honda Pilot.

However the Hawal F7 builders themselves name the favored Honda CR-V the principle competitor .

What traits of the Haval F7 will let you win towards the background of opponents? All the benefits of a crossover (good gear, technical specs) are mixed with an reasonably priced worth, because of which you’ll be able to flip a blind eye to some shortcomings (lack of adaptive cruise management within the base, and so on.). Consultants are satisfied that gross sales in Russia shall be excessive (at least on Haval H6). Nicely, let’s examine…

Trunk: chest of drawers won’t cross

The trunk of the F7 is uncomfortable. It’s straightforward to hit your head on its open door, and the low roofline and high-lying threshold of the baggage compartment (loading peak – as a lot as 90 cm) will certainly flip the loading of cumbersome heavy issues into one thing else torment. However the trunk quantity is spectacular – 490 liters. And it may be elevated to 1254 liters, if you happen to take away the trunk curtain and fold the second row seats. Small pockets are supplied on the edges of the trunk. Underneath the ground is a full-size stowaway with a ChaoYang model tire, a set of instruments, a easy jack and an emergency cease signal.
