The latest H2 was revealed at the 2019 SA Festival of Motoring, with the plan to replace the current version at the end of the first quarter of 2020.

The 2020 H2 will be available in four derivatives with manual and automatic drive trains being available and with different levels of specification namely the base or City model and then the Luxury model to choose from.

Stylistically the new H2 looks totally different with a revised front grill; arrow shaped lights and updated front and rear bumpers. The vehicles bonnet and fenders are also updated giving the new H2 a totally updated and revised stance and aesthetic appeal. Its 18" wheels are retained but a new 5 spoke star wheel is adopted to further enhance the overall aggressive and dynamic look.
