In Russia, sales of Dargo X, an “off-road” version of the latest model of the Haval brand, began. Recall that the combination of a 2.0-liter turbo engine (192 hp, 320 Nm) and a 7-speed preselective robot in Dargo X is the same, but a rear differential with a lock appeared in the all-wheel drive system.
The lock can operate at speeds up to 38 km/h in Sand, Snow, Mud and Bump modes. You can also lock the rear differential forcibly by pressing a button on the instrument panel.
Additionally, an “off-road cruise control” is provided: in the “Sand” mode, the electronics will maintain a speed of 7-15 km / h, and only ABS will continue to work from the auxiliary systems.
The X-version is distinguished by its decor: aggressive bumpers (silver vertical inserts are the first to catch the eye), lining on the arches with rivets and a large radiator grille without chrome.
Despite the fact that the regular Dargo is localized in full cycle in Tula, and the Dargo X will be delivered to us directly from China, the price of the version with a lock is only 70,000 more than that of a similar configuration without it. The “off-road” modification will be available only in the medium Elite and Premium versions, the cost is 3,269,000 and 3,469,000 rubles, respectively.
For comparison, for Dargo in the top configuration Tech Plus – with dual-zone climate control, a projection display, a driver’s seat with massage and memory function, a knee airbag and a wide range of electronic assistants – they ask for 3,549,000 rubles.
