I have been very impressed by GWM's Haval H6 Lux and H6 GT models I previously tested, they are great-looking, practical and affordable cars for families. Let's find out how we got on with the H6 Ultra Hybrid…

Looking straight at the rear seats of the GWM Haval H6 Ultra Hybrid, they have ISOFix points in the two outer seats, they are within plastic guides and nice and easy to connect to.

There are top tether anchorages for all three rear seats in the back of the seatbacks that are easily accessible through the boot.

The GWM Haval H6 Ultra Hybrid is a great option for families that need to fit three Infasecure child seats across the back seats. The seat base is lovely and wide and I could install the Infasecure Adapt More Infant Capsule, the Momentum More and the Infasecure Achieve More comfortably in the back.

The legroom in the GWM Haval H6 Ultra Hybrid is very good, we could fit an 184cm driver in front of a rear-facing Infasecure Adapt More Infant Capsule. Or even taller front passengers when you have forward-facing child seats. To learn more about the child seats used in this review, click on the link here.

Round in the boot of the GWM Haval H6 Ultra Hybrid, it is just as practical for families. Thirteen shopping bags will fit in the boot when it's empty. This is one more than the MG HS, which will hold twelve. The Hyundai Tucson will hold fourteen, the Toyota RAV4 will hold fifteen and the Kia Sportage sixteen shopping bags.

When it comes to driving the GWM Haval H6 Ultra Hybrid, it's a really smooth drive and I really enjoy it. You can feel the electric motor at low speeds and the engine seems to kick in when needed and most efficient without you really noticing it. Visibility is excellent out of the rear window even with three Infasecure child seats installed in the back.

The turning circle is tight in the GWM Haval H6 Ultra Hybrid and you can turn the cameras on at any time, so parking and maneuvering are simple.

Theoretically, the GWM Haval H6 Ultra Hybrid does 900km to a full tank of fuel, which is impressive. You can clearly see your range on the driver display screen. It comes with a seven-year warranty and the battery has an eight-year warranty. I previously tested the bottom spec Haval H6 Lux which is now available as a hybrid, at just $42,500, making it very affordable.

The reversing cameras are excellent in the H6 Ultra Hybrid with lovely clear visuals in 3D and 2D views.

The GWM Haval H6 Ultra Hybrid has seven airbags as standard and a five-star ANCAP safety rating. A great seatbelt removal visual on the driver display screen lets you know if a passenger in the front or back removes a seatbelt while driving.
