The Great Wall Haval H5, also known as Hover H5, is a compact sport utility vehicle (SUV) produced by the Chinese manufacturer Great Wall Motors since 2009. The vehicle, sometimes referred to by its export market name X240, is available with both 4×2 and 4x4 drivetrains, and either gasoline and diesel engines. The vehicle has passed the European tests regarding environment protection, safety and performance and is entitled for marketing throughout the European Union.[3] It is the successor of the Great Wall Haval H3 and both cars are nearly identical, except for their front designs.[4]


The H5 uses Mitsubishi 4G63 and Mitsubishi 4G69S4N petrol engines of 2.0 and 2.4 litres, or the 80 kW (109 PS) GW2.5TCI Diesel. In October 2010, the more powerful 110 kW (150 PS) but smaller (2.0 litres) GW4D20 Diesel was added to the lineup.[5] The Haval H5 comes with either a five-speed or a six-speed manual transmission, depending on model. It uses disk brakes. It has three trims: Standard, Luxury and Premium. The Premium trim features power windows, power door locks, rear window defrosters, leather seats, power adjustable seats (driver only), six speakers, a DVD player, GPS and a power sunroof all as standard. Heated seats are optional.[6]

Great Wall also plans to bring the H5 to the American market. It is also sold locally in China.

Starting from 2011, the variant sold in Australia will no longer be the H3, but the face-lifted H5, although the 2.4 litre gasoline model is sold as the X240 and is only available in manual transmission, and the 2.0 litre diesel models are available in either automatic or manual transmission and are sold as the X200.


Great Wall Haval H5 GKC Edition

A slightly different version, with a typical large grille and called the GKC Edition was also produced, but only for the Chinese market.[7] This version was facelifted in July 2011 and was known as the Zhizun.[8]
