With this, the Haval F5 was showcased which is a mid size SUV with all added modern technology and updated features. The F5 is the first model from the F series lineup to roll out from Haval’s stable.
In terms of design and aesthetics, the Haval F5 does look a bit sober and it does look very much similar to the F7 from its stable. Although the Haval F5 is a 4.4 meter mid-size SUV it is indeed longer than the Hyundai Creta and the Kia Seltos, but it's shorter than the MG Hector. The front fascia showcases a large grille giving the mid size SUV a macho look and it also gets narrow automatic headlamps with LED DRL’s adding a bit of aggression to the overall design. In addition to this, the Haval f5 features large faux air dams, a raised shoulder line with a bit of rond design at the rear.
