GWM cuts spec and price on H6

The Star Early Edition - - NEW MODELS - MO­TOR­ING STAFF

GREAT Wall Mo­tors has launched a cheaper, en­trylevel ver­sion of its H6 SUV in South Africa.

The new H6 City, priced at R259 900, falls in be­low ex­ist­ing H6 1.5T Lux (R279 900) and H6 2.0TCI Lux (R349 900) mod­els, in terms of both price and spec­i­fi­ca­tion. The City gets the same re­mote cen­tral lock­ing, power win­dows, dual front airbags, ABS with EBD brakes, and rear park­ing sen­sors as the higher spec mod­els, but costs are kept down with the dele­tion of items like cruise con­trol, touch screen in­fo­tain­ment dis­plays, key­less ignition, rear view cam­eras and height ad­justable driver’s seats among other things.

Power comes from the same 105kW/210Nm 1.5litre tur­bopetrol as was in­tro­duced in the H6 late last year. This en­gine is paired with a six-speed man­ual trans­mis­sion in both de­riv­a­tives, and GWM quotes an av­er­age fuel con­sump­tion of 8.5 litres/100km.

All H6 mod­els come with stan­dard five-year/100 000km war­ranties.
