2023 GWM Haval Jolion S: Sporty new variant on sale from $36,990 drive-away

The GWM Haval Jolion gets a performance boost.

Following the launch of the efficiency-focused Jolion Hybrid earlier this year, the Chinese brand introduces the 2023 GWM Haval Jolion S, a more powerful sport variant with a more sophisticated independent rear suspension system priced at $36,990.

Bridging the gap between the Jolion Ultra ($33,990 D/A) and the Jolion Ultra Hybrid ($41,990 D/A), the Jolion S gets a 130kW/270Nm version of the 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder base vehicle’s petrol engine – increases of 20kW and 50Nm – and swaps out the torsion beam rear suspension of other Jolion models for a multi-link rear suspension that claims to “improve ride and handling performance to match the S nameplate”.

Drive is still sent to the front wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Curiously, GWM Haval claims that the Jolion S consumes 0.6 l/100 km less than other non-hybrid variants and claims 7.5 l/100 km combined.

Externally, the Jolion S features black alloy wheels, black exterior mirrors, black roof rails, black side trim, and blackened front and rear bumpers. Otherwise, the Jolion S inherits the specs of the Jolion Ultra – read our price and specs breakdown here.

GWM Haval says it’s also applied insights from consumer feedback inside the cabin by adding “hard knobs” for climate controls “to make it easier to adjust the cabin temperature while driving.”

It’s unclear if and when these internal changes will be applied to the rest of the Jolion series. CarExpert is awaiting further comments from the local department of GWM Haval.

Like the wider GWM Haval range, the Jolion S is covered by a seven-year unlimited mileage warranty.

By the end of October, the GWM Haval Jolion has reported back 6,158 registrations in Australia, a 116.6 per cent improvement over the same period in 2021 and accounting for a 6.6 per cent share in the mainstream small SUV segment.
