Performance & Drive:
Haval Jolion delivers a comfortable drive with its 1.5 liters turbocharged engine that is not a powerful yet eco-friendly engine that produces enough energy to run the car efficiently.

The Eco mode is a fuel-saving mode, the sport mode gives you a sporty ride, standard mode is preferred for daily driving, and snowfield is switched in times of snowy roads. The fuel economy of Haval Jolion is also impressive, consuming 7.5 liters of petrol in giving you a mileage of 100 kilometers.

The adaptive cruise control maintains a safe distance from the vehicles ahead by automatically adjusting the car’s speed.
