There's an all-new MPV in town, and it's not your typical 7-seater. This is the 2022 Haima 7x, and it has more style and flair than most three-row MPVs out on the road today. But how did Haima give the 7x such a distinct look?
Penned by renowned Italian designer Pier Luigi Ferrari, Head of Design Pininfarina Shanghai, the Haima 7x combines the practicality of an MPV with the styling of luxury yachts. Up front, the MPV features a massive grille that's flanked by eye-catching halogen projector headlights and LED daytime running lights. Meanwhile, the rear gets a unique tailgate complete with a distinct pair of LED taillights. Finally, the 7-seater rolls on 17-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels wrapped in 215/60/R17 tires.
Size-wise, the 7x measures 4815mm long, 1874mm wide, and 1720mm tall. It also has a generous 2860mm wheelbase and a minimum ground clearance of 170mm.
Pop the doors open and you're greeted by leather seats, digital screens, and a 2+2+3 seating layout. That's right, this people carrier has captain seats on the second row which makes for a more comfortable riding experience. Meanwhile, the third row comes with a 60:40 split-bench seat that can be folded flat when not in use.
In front of the driver is a 7-inch digital instrument cluster that shows the gauges and the multi-info display. The other screen is a 12.3-inch touchscreen monitor that's part of the infotainment system. It supports AM/FM radio, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi hotspot, and smartphone connectivity. Other features available include digital automatic climate control, a multi-function steering wheel with audio and cruise control buttons, four USB charging ports, keyless entry with push-button start, and a panoramic sunroof.
Under the hood of the Haima 7x is a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. It makes 162 PS along with 240 Nm of torque. Power is then sent to the front wheels via a 6-speed automatic transmission with manual select. For extra get-up-and-go, the transmission can be set to Sport Mode.
A wide array of safety features come as standard on the 2022 Haima 7x. These include anti-lock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, brake assist, traction control, hill-start assist, hill-descent control, electronic stability control, tire pressure monitoring, reverse camera, rear parking sensors, dual front airbags, and ISOFIX child seat anchors on the second row.
A total of four colors are available for Haima's newest MPV. These are; Clear Sky Blue, Reef Rock Gray, Sandy Beach White, and Wave Light Silver.
The 2022 Haima 7x is now available with a suggested retail price of PHP 1,199,000. However, the company is offering a PHP 100,000 discount for a limited time, bringing its SRP to just PHP 1,099,000.
Haima will officially unveil 7x to the public tomorrow at SM City Clark at 3:00 PM.
