Coupe SUVs are expected to become the next trend in the country. They offer sporty dynamics while also providing the practicality of SUVs. Currently, in India, we don’t have any mass-market coupes. The cheapest SUV coupe is the BMW X4 that comes in at Rs 80.32 lakh (on-road, Mumbai). But this is soon going to change with both Tata and Mahindra working on their SUV coupes. But another brand could launch its coupe in India before both these brands. This brand is Great Wall Motors’ subsidiary Haval which has a coupe SUV named F7X. Considering Haval is looking to enter the Indian market, it could launch the F7X in India. It had also displayed the F7X at the Auto Expo 2020. In today’s article, we will see this upcoming coupe SUV.
The Haval F7X is based on the brand’s standard F7 SUV. So in terms of size, it is similar to the Hyundai Tucson. Coming to the design, it gets a big grille with sharp-looking headlamps. The major difference comes in the side profile due to the tampering roof at the C-pillar. At the rear, it gets taillamps extending into the tailgate with a sportier bumper.

Haval has tried to show it as a premium offering in its SUV lineup. It comes with a modern dashboard layout with an integrated 9.0-inch infotainment system that can be mirrored to the digital instrument cluster. The seats and the dashboard get maroon coloured leather upholstery. Other features include a three-spoke steering wheel, connected car tech, heated steering wheel, heated ventilated seats, a dual-climate zone and an electric sunroof.
Globally the F7X comes with two engine options. The first engine is a 1.5-litre turbo-petrol unit capable of producing 166bhp & 285Nm of torque. While the second is 2.0-litre turbo-petrol capable of producing 221bhp & 385Nm of torque. Both engines come with a seven-speed DCT gearbox option. There is also an all-wheel-drive option.
