Go Auto Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Ahmad Azam Datuk Sulaiman said, the company is excited to bring in H2 models which serve as an upgrade version of the sporty M4.
The M4 (1.5 liter) model which reached Malaysia last year, showed an encouraging response, and is indeed timely to bring a more premium and powerful range of SUV to capture a wider segment of the local SUV market.

The H2 comes with attractive features including six-speed automatic gearbox, electric folding side mirrors with integrated puddle lamps, a sunroof, six way electricity adjustable driver’s seat, leather upholstery, 3.5 inch TFT colour display trip computer and a multifunction steering wheel.
Haval H2 has a 1.5L turbo petrol engine, with maximum power output in kilowatt/hp at 5600 is 110/147 and the maximum output of torque at 210Nm is 220rpm to 4500 rpm.
