Presentation of the compact crossover Hawtai Laville on the market was held in two thousand fourteenth – as part of the Moscow Motor Show. But before our dealers, the first cars could be reached only after four years – in May 2018. Chinese SUV Hawthai Laville 2018-2019 (photo, price) looks rather ambiguous – the design of the car uses a lot of bends, which do not seem appropriate everywhere. Front view of the grille with horizontal ribs, boomerang-like sections of the fog lamps and stretched optics with the “eyebrows” of diode navigation lights. On the side, the model resembles Hyundai ix35, but it’s not surprising, because it was the South Korean all-terrain vehicle that formed HTM Laville (previously Hawtai and Hyundai had a joint venture in China). On the front wings are placed miniature overlays with the imitation of slots, the falling roof ends with a spoiler over the trunk lid, there are rails. The rear lights of the broken form were located on the rear wings and on the fifth door. In the cabin – a simple steering wheel, instrument panel with a well for a speedometer and a multimedia screen under the peak at the top of the center console. On the sides it is framed by vertically oriented ventilation deflectors, and below it is a block of various buttons with a large twist.
