HAVAL H8 – Sophisticated Elegance

With its sleek lines, sumptuous interior and turbo power, the new HAVAL H8 luxury SUV makes a bold statement of stylish intent.

Test Drive



H8 360° View

Intelligent Xenon Headlights

The super white xenon headlights and daytime running automatically turn on and off. The headlights on the LUX model self-clean and feature an Adaptive Front Lighting (AFS) system that “looks around corners”.

Functional Elegance

Practical features such as water-repellent front windows, roof rails, side steps, air-channeling bonnet fins, puddle lights and in the LUX, an electric tailgate are integrated seamlessly into the design of the HAVAL H8.

Stylish Alloy Wheels

Strong and light weight 18″ aluminium alloy wheels (19″ on LUX) reduce unsprung weight and add sophisticated elegance.

Purposeful design

The HAVAL H8 features a sunroof with opening tilting glass with rain sensing technology, that automatically closes for interior protection.

H8 Power and Precision

Using state-of-the-art turbocharging technology means the HAVAL H8 2.0-litre engine delivers performance similar to much larger, naturally aspirated engines.

Turbocharged Technology Delivers In All Conditions

Rated Power: 160kW/5500rpm
With 160kW of power at their disposal, drivers will always have ample performance for all driving conditions.

Maximum Torque: 324Nm/2000-4000rpm
Maximum torque comes on stream from a low 2000 rpm, meaning the HAVAL H8 delivers smooth, linear acceleration across the rev range. That means you will always have the power you need, when you need it.

Twin Counter-Rotating Balance Shafts:
This ensures the stable operation of the engine, improving fuel efficiency, reducing noise and prolonging engine life.

VVT Technology:
By accurately controlling the duration for valve opening and closing, Variable Valve Timing (VVT) increases the air intake volume of the engine and promotes better air induction efficiency. This in turn improves engine power and torque, resulting in lower fuel consumption and less exhaust emissions.

Silent Timing System:
The silent, low-resistance timing chain improves the working efficiency of the chain drive, reducing owner operating costs.

Hollow Sodium-Charged Exhaust Valves:
The H8 engine uses hollow sodium-charged valves to assist with cooling. At normal operating temperatures, the sodium within the valves turns to liquid, maintaining a lower and more stable temperature, drawing heat from the combustion chamber and improving operational stability.

6-Speed ZF Transmission

The Automatic Choice For Prestige Motoring

Paddle Shift Gear Levers
The paddle shift gear levers allow drivers to seamlessly shift up or down through the six-speed transmission without taking their hands off the steering wheel, F1 style.

Manual/Automatic Switching
Easily switch between manual and auto modes to suit your driving style and the prevailing conditions.

Safety Locking Function
To ensure driver, passenger and pedestrian safety, the H8 is fitted with a safety locking function to prevent the gear lever being accidentally shifted while driving.

Intelligent Technology

The integration of the latest intelligent technology into the HAVAL H8 ensures maximum comfort, safety and performance.

Double Wishbone Suspension

The independent front suspension of this robust SUV features double wishbones that simultaneously absorb motion and transverse forces. High levels of rigidity maintain optimal tyre contact and keep the body stable during braking, accelerating and cornering. The upper and lower wishbones are unequal in length to alter camber angle during wheel articulation. This reduces tread variation and tyre wear, and delivers a smooth and comfortable driving experience for driver and passenger alike.

Rear Multilink Suspension

This advanced and highly rated suspension system is becoming the worldwide industry standard for luxury SUVs. It meets the very high demands of off-road driving, while improving handling, supporting superior control and delivering outstanding comfort to driver and passengers. H8 features the advanced Sachs Nivomat self-levelling rear suspension for maximum traction and safety regardless of load.

H8 Luxurious Interior

Spacious and ergonomically efficient, the HAVAL H8 interior boasts superior craftsmanship for ultimate driving comfort.

The luxury of space

Infinity Integrated Entertainment System (LUX model)

NVH Ultra-silent Cabin
Noise reduction, panel insulation and noise absorption combine to deliver a whisper quiet ride in the H8 cabin.

ESP Bosch 9th Generation Electronic Assist System

A network of sensors monitors the vehicle’s status and detects braking, to automatically engage features that provide a safer, simpler and more comfortable ride.

ESP (Electronic Stability Program)
Improving stability and safety, ESP helps maintain the vehicle’s line and helps prevent skidding.

HDC (Hill Descent Control)
Hill Descent Control automatically regulates braking on all four wheels to deliver a smooth and stable descent for a safer drive.

HHC (Hill Hold Control)
HHC simplifies hill starts by holding the brakes for up to 2 seconds after removing your foot from the brake pedal, to avoid slipping back while engaging the accelerator. Other features: ABS (anti-lock braking system), EBD (electronic brake force distribution), HBA (hydraulic brake assist) and RMI (roll movement intervention).
