Haval F7 2024

A little over a year ago, the crossover received minor design upgrades, so we can say that it is available in a new body. Haval F7 2024 is offered in four trim levels with good technical characteristics and equipment. At the same time, the price looks attractive compared to its main competitors. The external data of the model can be assessed from the photos presented in the article.

Design

Structurally, Haval F7 is similar to other similar models, while having its own unique style in the design of key exterior details. The headlights received a unique shape, adjacent closely to the polygonal radiator grille. The latter, by the way, has a standard mesh filling. Large windows provide good visibility, and the stamping on the door panels adds dynamism to the appearance. The wheels have an interesting spoke pattern. At the rear, the eye is drawn by the lamps, which are no less original in shape than the headlights in front, as well as a large spoiler and an antenna on the roof. Taken together, it was possible to achieve a completely sporty and youthful style.

During the renovation process, some changes were made to the interior design. A more modern style can be seen here, which is expressed in the corresponding design of the center console and transmission tunnel. The “dashboard” houses displays of the instrument panel and infotainment complex, several keys and fairly large air conditioning system deflectors. At the same time, the console itself received a rather complex shape. The chairs boast a comfortable fit and lateral support. Overall, this is a quite comfortable and spacious car inside.

The traction torque is 280 N*m. For “older” modifications, a two-liter engine with 190 hp is available. the torque in this case corresponds to 340 N*m.

The Haval F7 has a standard platform. There are MacPherson struts in front, and a multi-link at the rear. At the same time, its arsenal includes disc brakes, which are distinguished by better efficiency, as well as an electronic parking brake.

Contents after purchase

In terms of service, the Haval F7 2024 cannot be called budget. On the other hand, prices in this case are presented like most other models in the same segment. As for the transport tax, in the top version for the cross it is equal to 9.5 thousand rubles. If you look at fuel costs, they largely depend on the region and driving style. No less important is the parameter of how intensively the car is used. On average, for a two-liter engine, the cost per year will be more than one hundred thousand rubles. Maintenance is also a standard procedure, which will require at least 20-30 thousand rubles. Everything also depends on the type of work and the cost of components.

Safety

The cost of a crossover varies in the range of two to three million rubles, which by current standards is not much, so you may get the impression of “modest” equipment. In the case of the Haval F7, it is absolutely false. Its arsenal includes a large selection of protection options, including airbags and curtain airbags. True, all of them are mainly available in top-end versions. However, good equipment is also provided for the initial versions. Overall, this is a very reliable and safe car. Unfortunately, crash tests were not carried out with it, but there are real reviews from owners that are quite positive.

Off-road performance

The Haval F7 is offered with all-wheel drive and high ground clearance, which means good off-road performance. At the same time, it is still a crossover, so you should be careful when going off-road. In general, it does not have the appropriate equipment for this, and its design features imply a more urban format of operation. Although he is quite capable of traveling into nature on country roads. At least he can handle most obstacles easily. But in the city, the crossover demonstrates excellent dynamics and good handling in accordance with its technical characteristics. Overtaking maneuvers are also usually not difficult, and disc brakes provide additional safety while driving.

Start of sales

The crossover has been present on the Russian market since 2018. At the same time, in February 2022, its updated version became available to Russians, in which it was slightly transformed in appearance and acquired a number of additional options.

Competitors

Those that are imported have a high price tag due to difficulties in supply. The main competitors of the model are Skoda Kodiaq, Mazda CX-7, etc.
