The Haima S5 was showcased at the 2015 Shanghai Auto Show. The stylish SUV had made its debut one year earlier at the 2014 Beijing Auto Show.
The S5’s exterior features both curvy and sharp edges. The face bears a twin-strip chrome grille with extended headlights and secondary lights as we move toward the bumper; a horizontal strip of LEDs is added to lend further visual distinction. The side profile gets lower body cladding, roof rails and 16-inch rims. The rear sees angular LED tail lights and a tailgate spoiler.
The compact SUV measures in at 4,358 mm, 1,823 mm and 1,630 mm in length, width and height respectively.
Coming to the interior, the Haima S5 has a sporty ambience with an unconventional dashboard design. The leather seats have a dual tone which is also carried to the door trims. Aluminum accents are spotted on the AC vents and four-spoke multi-function steering wheel. The center console stands out with its gloss-black finish with the the infotainment screen taking its place at the very top.
Powering the Haima S5 are two gasoline engines. The first is a 1.6-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine generating 120 hp and 160 Nm, and the second is a 1.5-liter four cylinder turbocharged petrol unit producing 160 hp and 223 Nm of peak torque. The bigger engine is married to a 5-speed manual transmission and the smaller engine is coupled to a CVT.
