New Chery Tiggo 7 Pro Max now on sale in South Africa – Pricing and features

The new Chery Tiggo 7 Pro Max is now on sale in South Africa, the first all-wheel-drive (AWD) Tiggo Pro in the country.

The 7 Pro Max is available in three trims from a starting price of R529,900, and the front-wheel-drive (FWD) models are available immediately while the AWD versions are open for pre-order at Chery dealerships with deliveries to commence at a later date.


Taking over from the standard Tiggo 7 Pro range, the new Max variants feature distinctive exterior styling underscored by a model-exclusive grille with an accentuated diamond pattern crafted from a dark gloss black polycarbonate weave, three-dimensional “Angel Wing” LED headlights with a unique welcome sequence, and a redesigned lower sill and side intakes.

Visual updates continue with “deep-dish” 18-inch wheels for the FWD models, whereas the AWD specification rides on larger 19-inch alloys in their own look.

Once inside, the new Chery sees a 24.6-inch curved display sitting atop the instrument panel comprising a digital driver’s cluster and a media screen, housing controls for numerous vehicle functions including the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring apps.

In addition, the line-up comes with front Sports seats wrapped in perforated leather with electric adjustment, an eight-speaker Sony sound system, dual-zone climate control, a 1.1sqm panoramic sunroof, an electric tailgate, an around-view camera system, and a wireless charger that has been enhanced from 15W to a powerful 50W.

The number of airbags has also been upgraded from six in the normal Tiggo 7 Pro to eight in the Max.

In the flagship Executive spec, buyers can further expect level 2.5 advanced driver assistance systems including adaptive cruise control, lane-change assist, forward and rear-collision warning, autonomous emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, a driver monitoring system, and a multi-collision brake system.


The entire Tiggo 7 Pro Max family employs a 1.6-litre, turbo-petrol powerplant which is matched with a seven-speed automatic gearbox.

This drivetrain puts out 145kW and 290Nm and is available in FWD on the Distinction trim and in both FWD and AWD on the Executive. It has Eco, Normal, Sport, Snow, Muddy, and Off-Road drive programmes, too.

“For the FWD models, this delivers exceptional fuel efficiency and a power delivery that’s nothing short of exhilarating. AWD models receive power to all wheels, ensuring a commanding and responsive drive, making every journey a thrilling adventure,” said Chery.

Particulars such as the setup’s fuel consumption and performance figures have not been revealed, however.


The South African pricing and line-up for the new Chery Tiggo 7 Pro Max are as follows:

  • Chery Tiggo 7 Pro Max Distinction – R529,900
  • Chery Tiggo 7 Pro Max Executive – R559,900
  • Chery Tiggo 7 Pro Max Executive AWD – R609,900

Each model is accompanied by a 5-year/150,000km general warranty, a 10-year/1-million kilometre engine warranty, and a 5-year/60,000km service plan.
