In April 2021, the Tula plant Haval announced the start of mass production of the new Jolion crossover (known as “Chulian” in China), and now this model has reached dealers.
In Russia, the Haval Jolion SUV became the first model of the Chinese brand built on the LEMON modular platform. This “bogie” is characterized by a wider use of high-strength steels and increased rigidity of the body structure.

In terms of dimensions, the crossover reaches 4,472 mm in length and 1,841 mm in width, its wheelbase is 2,700, and its ground clearance is 190 mm. Trunk volume is declared at 1,113 liters (with the rear seats folded), but the model’s carrying capacity is low and varies in the range from 320 to 340 kg.
The car is equipped with a 1.5-liter petrol “turbo four”, which can run on the AI-92. The capacity of this unit is 143 hp. (210 Nm), and it can work either in a six-speed manual or with a seven-speed robot with two clutches.
In China, the model is offered exclusively with front-wheel drive, but in Russia it will be possible to order the car with a full one. On 4WD versions, a fifth generation Haldex electro-hydraulic clutch transmission is used, which is responsible for connecting the rear axle.
Plus, on versions with four drive wheels, the said turbo engine produces 150 forces and 230 Nm of torque, working exclusively with a robotic gearbox.
Note that if front-wheel drive cars use a semi-independent suspension at the rear, then an independent multi-link is placed on the all-wheel drive. As for the dynamics, the car accelerates from zero to hundreds in 9.8 seconds (regardless of the specification).
In our market, the crossover is offered in three trim levels. Basic version Comfort (from 1,189,000 rubles) 17-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry, light and rain sensors, two airbags, an engine start button, cruise control, a multimedia system with a 10.0-inch screen, climate control, heated front seats, height-adjustable steering wheel and stabilization system.
