The new Chery Tiggo 7 Pro has launched in South Africa with a starting price of R409,900.
Chery’s latest SUV is available in two trim models – the Distinctive and Executive – and both models make use of the same powertrain.
The new Tiggo 7 Pro features black synthetic leather upholstery, a six-way electronically-adjustable driver’s seat, and a leather multifunctional steering wheel as standard.
The centre-piece of the interior is its three digital displays, the first of which is a 7-inch screen for the driver.
Next to this sits a 10.25-inch infotainment screen that plays through a six-speaker setup and offers features such as wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a reverse camera, and voice command support.
Below the infotainment display is a third screen, which is primarily used to adjust the dual-zone climate control.
Across the range, the Tiggo 7 Pro further comes with automatic LED headlights, a start-stop system, cruise control, wireless phone charging, ambient interior lighting, and 18-inch alloys.
Safety offerings also comprise four airbags, emergency brake assistance, hill-start assist, hill descent control, rear parking sensors, rear traffic alert, and blind-spot detection.
The pricier Executive is then differentiated by a four-way electric front passenger seat, adaptive cruise control, an electric panoramic sunroof, and red brake callipers – as well as two additional airbags, lane departure warning, front collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and 360-degree monitoring.
Storage space for the new Chery is listed at 475 litres, which can be expanded to 1,500 litres when the 60:40 rear seats are folded down.
Under the hood
Both versions of the new Tiggo 7 Pro are fitted with a 1.5-litre, four-cylinder, turbo-petrol engine that generates 108kW and 210Nm.
This powertrain is connected to a CVT transmission with “nine pre-programmed spreads” that drives the front wheels, and boasts a combined fuel consumption rating of 6.8l/100km.
