In the first days of October 2017, the Chinese company Hawtai introduced the crossover Laville for the market. This model has long been sold in China under the name Hawtai C9 Santa Fe, and now the car has appeared in our country. The specialists of the European center of the brand were engaged in the design of Hawtai Laville 2017-2018. The car received a complicated front bumper, a shield-shaped grille, large head optics with diode sections and a massive rear bumper. Being built on the Hyundai ix35 platform of the 2010 model, the SUV achieves a length, width and height of 4,426, 1,862 and 1,683 mm respectively, and its wheelbase is 2,660 mm. In running order, the car weighs from 1,460 to 1,484 kg. The luggage compartment is designed for 430 liters, but with the rear seats folded, its volume is already 1,401 liters. Front on the Laville installed suspension type Macpherson, and rear – multi-lever. By default, the ground clearance is declared at 189 millimeters, but at full load it decreases to 156 mm. For braking, disc brakes respond, with the front brakes being ventilated. The range of powertrains for the Hawtai Laville 2018 is represented by two 1.5-liter petrol turbo engines. It’s about the old engine with the index 15S4G, which develops 156 hp. (215 Nm), and a new 4G15T with 150 horsepower and 210 Nm of torque. Plus in the Celestial SUV can be ordered with a 2.0-liter diesel OED483Q, which is manufactured by the Chinese brand under the license of the Italian company VW Motori. The engine produces 150 “horses” and 310 Nm, but the appearance of such a modification in our market is unlikely. The engines work either in conjunction with a five-speed mechanics, or with a four-band ZF. The drive has a default front model, and the full version is only available for diesel versions.
