2019 H9 Review – Baby Drive
“It is a fantastic family SUV…”
The HAVAL H9 is a seven-seater Chinese SUV that is relatively new to Australia and with its $41K price tag, a lot of parents have contacted me keen to know if it is any good. I was very eager to test it with my family for the week and see how good it is as a BabyDrive…
Well my first impressions were actually “Wow!” I was expecting a very basic and impractical SUV but as I drove it the 90 minute journey home on a very chilly Queensland winter day I was definitely won over by the heated AND massaging front seats!
With a rear-facing child seat installed in the second-row, we could fit a 180cm driver in front of them and I could sit in the third row (I’m 162cm).
I could easily fit three child seats across the second-row seats of the HAVAL H9. Three forward-facing fitted easily as did a rear-facing and two forward-facing.
“It really does tick all the boxes for storage with sunglasses case in the ceiling and lit vanity mirrors which are things often missing from much more expensive vehicle brands.”

There is an enormous sunroof and ceiling ventilation for both rear rows of seats, which is a really important feature in a seven-seater.
