The Great Wall Hover ( _zh. 长城哈弗) is a Crossover Utility Vehicle (CUV) sold by the Great Wall Motor Company in several countries. It was the first Chinese car to be exported in large quantities to Western Europe in 2006, when 30,000 Hovers were shipped to Italy. One of the main advantages against established European, American and other Asian rivals is the low cost of the Hover compared to these.

Design and engineering

One of the reasons for the in comparison low retail price of the Great Wall Hover is that it is based heavily on older models by other manufactures. The entry-level motor is supplied by Mitsubishi, the exterior is based on a '02 Isuzu Axiom and the chassis from a Toyota 4Runner. The Hover has wheelbase of Auto mm|2700|1 and Auto mm|1520|1 wheel track. As the Hover is a Crossover Utility Vehicle, it features 4-wheel drive (4WD), however it can be switched to standard 2-wheel drive.

Engines and transmission

The gasoline Great Wall Hover uses a Mitsubishi 4G64 engine, a Sirius series straight-4 automobile engine. The 4G64 engine and was introduced in 1988 the Mitsubishi Galant and has been used in several other car manufactures. The 4G64 engine produces 128 bhp. The diesel version uses a motor built by Great Wall themselves, the GW2.8TC. Both versions have a 5-gear manual transmission.

Environmental and safety test
