  The Hongqi H6 Sedan Is Heading To Global Markets With A 2.0-Liter Turbo

by Brad Anderson

Hot on the heels of various spy shots, the new Hongqi H6 has been unveiled in full at the Guangzhou Auto Show.

The H6 adopts a dynamic and sporty design that should help it appeal to a wide range of buyers. It includes a large grille, aggressive split headlights, LED daytime running lights that run down either side of the grille, and a number of black accents.

We’re particularly fond of the H6’s side profile with its dynamic design lines, complex wheel design, and the sleek D-pillar. The rear of the H6 completes the dramatic look with a complex split-taillight design that includes a light bar, a stylish rear diffuser, and dual tailpipes exiting out from the center of the bumper.

Found in the cabin is a portrait-oriented central infotainment display, a digital instrument cluster, flat-bottomed steering wheel, contrast stitching, and sport seats clad in leather. A panoramic sunroof and paddle shifters are also featured.

Car News China notes that the Hongqi H6 is 4,990 mm (196.4 inches) long, 1,880 mm (74 inches) wide, and 1,455 mm (57.2 inches) tall while sporting a large 2,920 mm (114.9-inch) wheelbase. Despite its size, it isn’t too heavy at 1,665 kg (3,670 lbs).

The Chinese automaker will sell the H6 with just one powertrain, namely a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that is good for 248 hp and 280 lb-ft (380 Nm) of torque. This engine is coupled to an eight-speed automatic transmission and launches the sedan to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.8 seconds.

Heaps of impressive technologies also come standard on the H6, including a Level 2 semi-autonomous driving system that includes active braking, lane departure prediction system, lane keeping assistance system, and traffic sign recognition.

Hongqi will start accepting Chinese orders for the H6 on January 23 but dates for its global launch are not yet known.
