On July 4, Harvard officially released the official map of the new generation of Harvard H5 models. As a replacement model, although the new car is still named "Harvard H5", it is obviously different from the previous H5 version in appearance, style and positioning, and the overall shape is more sturdy and fashionable, and the new car is expected to go on sale in the fourth quarter of this year.
The new generation of Harvard H5 is built on the tank platform, the appearance adopts the latest design style of the Harvard family, and the body size has also been significantly improved, the positioning of the car may be changed from the original compact SUV to a large SUV, and the power is equipped with 2.0T gasoline and diesel engines, and the transmission system can choose manual or automatic transmission.
From the point of view of the latest official picture, in terms of appearance, the new car adopts a new design style, and the shape of the whole car is square and hard. The front face is designed with a large trapezoidal grille, the interior of the grille is decorated with double horizontal chrome strips, and the center is Harvard's brand-new Logo, with square and wide headlamp groups on both sides, with a very layered front enclosure and multiple rib lines on the engine cover, making the visual effect of the whole front face very domineering. In the rear part, the shape of the rear part of the new car is more straight, and the design of the upper narrow and lower width makes the car look more powerful. Taillights are vertically designed and connected by a black trim board, with bilateral exhaust layout, the sense of movement is more obvious.
On the side of the body, the new car looks very slender, especially the C-column is very wide, and the roof lines tend to be straight. it is expected that there will be good riding space and storage space in the car. in addition, the new car B-column and D-column are treated in black.
In terms of size, the new generation of Harvard H5 is 5190/1905/1835mm in length, width and height, and 3140mm in wheelbase, positioning large SUV. For comparison, the 2018 Harvard H5 classic model, which has been discontinued, has a length, width and height of 4645/1800/1785mm, a wheelbase of 2700mm, and a positioning compact SUV. Taken together, the length and wheelbase of the new car exceed that of Harvard H9.
In the interior part, the previous spy photo shows that the layout of the interior of the new car is basically similar to that of the diamond cannon, equipped with double suspended LCD dashboards and multimedia displays, and the lower air-conditioning control area may be a touch panel. The multi-function steering wheel is similar to the Haversian beast, and the shape of the shift lever is somewhat similar to that of the tank 300. The overall design is not amazing, but it is in line with the steady aura of the hard-line off-road vehicle. In addition, the previously declared model of the new car is a 2 + 3 five-seat layout, which means that the new car may have plenty of rear storage space.
In terms of power, the new generation Harvard H5 is equipped with a honeycomb power model of 4C20B 2.0T gasoline engine and a model of 4D20M 2.0T diesel engine. Among them, 2.0T gasoline engine is divided into 145kW and 165kW power, and the maximum power of 2.0T diesel engine is 122kW. In terms of transmission, in addition to the 6-speed manual transmission, the new car automatically shifts the model or matches the 6-speed manual self-integrated gearbox.
The Harvard H5, a compact SUV under the Harvard brand, first went on sale in September 2010, but failed to wait for the second-generation model to be hastily withdrawn from the market and stopped production due to poor sales and product renaming.
With the release of the official map, it means that the launch of the Harvard H5 replacement model has been basically confirmed. According to the analysis of the size and positioning of the new car, the new Harvard H5 may become the largest SUV under the Harvard brand, with many netizens even saying: "this is the largest SUV in the history of the Great Wall."
The previous declaration chart shows that the new Harvard H5 tail bid provides "Harvard H5", "Harvard H5L" and "Harvard H5 MAX". It is not clear how the new car will be named, and it is expected that the three tail marks will correspond to the "small, medium and large" version of Harvard H5. However, the market believes that the size of the new Harvard H5 is larger than that of the largest Harvard H9, and its positioning spans directly from a compact SUV to a large SUV, which is prone to product intergenerational confusion. As for the sales performance of new cars on the market with a lot of innovation, it still takes more time to verify.
