Safety Isn't Taking A Backseat In The GWM Haval Jolion HEV And GWM Haval H6 HEV

Great Wall Motor (GWM) under its Philippine distributor, Luxuriant Automotive Group, Inc. (LAGI) got our attention when they decided to go against the Chinese brand grain by offering two hybrid electric vehicles from the get-go. Now, they’ve confirmed that aside from offering New Energy Vehicles or NEVs to the local market, they’ll be packing them with world-class safety technology as well.

During GWM’s production presentation on the Haval Jolion HEV and Haval H6 HEV, they mentioned that these two SUVs are targeting the “Individual Trendsetter” and “Responsible Family Leader,” respectively. Although these markets don’t seem to have much in common on the surface, dig deeper, and you’ll find that technology is a main purchase driver, but for two different reasons.

For the “Individual Trendsetter” or the Haval Jolion HEV’s focus, technology is important because they see cars as their “third space.” Third space is defined as a place outside of work and the residence, and is generally seen as a place to relax, de-stress, and enjoy hobbies. As a result, they value safety, comfort, and infotainment as their main design priorities.

On the other hand, for the Haval H6 HEV’s “Responsible Family Leader” focus, technology is there to play an important role in safety. These buyers understand that today’s modern vehicle can protect its occupants in the event of a crash, so they’ve turned their attention to crash avoidance. These active safety systems avoid or reduce the severity of a crash, keeping occupants safe while also reducing potential out-of-pocket expenses in the event of a fender bender.

Realizing these requirements, GWM Philippines has decided to equip both the Haval Jolion HEV and Haval H6 HEV with cutting-edge Advanced Driver Assistance Systems or ADAS. Using a millimeter wave radar mounted at the bottom part of the front bumper as well as a monocular camera at the top of the windshield it gives both of these vehicles the following features and functionalities: All-Speed Adaptive Cruise Control with Smart Cornering (ACC with SCS); Forward Collision Warning (FCW); Autonomous Emergency Braking with Vehicle, Cyclist, and Pedestrian Support (AEB); Lane Centering Warning with Lane Centering Assist (LCW with LCA); and Blind Spot Warning with Rear Cross Traffic Support (RCW with RCTS).

Furthermore, thanks to a high-resolution 360-degree camera and proximity sensors at both ends, these SUVs are a cake to park. And even if the driver does face some difficulty parking, they also offer a fully automated parking system that helps slot the car into both parallel and perpendicular spaces at the press of a button. Have trouble getting out? They actually memorize the last 50 meters or so that the vehicle has traveled so drivers can just “rewind” to get out of a tight situation.

The safety conscious design of the GWM Haval Jolion HEV and Haval H6 HEV have been recognized not just in China, where both vehicles scored a perfect 5-star rating at the C-NCAP, but they’re also 5-star rated vehicles at the ANCAP or Australasian New Car Assessment Program. The ANCAP is generally recognized to have more stringent vehicle safety standards than, say, the ASEAN NCAP.
