The Tiggo 7 Pro will slot in between these two models. Two versions of the Tiggo 7 Pro – Distinctive and Executive – will be available.
Both versions of the Tiggo 7 Pro are fitted with Chery’s 1.5 litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine delivering 108 kW at 5 500 r/min and 210 Nm between 1 750 and 4 500 r/min. The Tiggo 7 Pro delivers its power to the front wheels through a CVT transmission with nine pre-programmed “spreads”. The wheelbase is 2 670 mm with an overall length of 4 500 mm.
The interior is upholstered in durable black synthetic leather with contrasting stitching. The driver’s seat features six-way electric adjustment, and in the Executive model, the passenger seat has four-way electrical adjustment as well.
The first is a 7” digital centre information panel in front of the driver. This floating screen offers a host of customisation options, and it promises clear legibility of all vehicle information in light or dark conditions.
A second 10.25” LCD screen crowns the centre console. This screen, as per other Chery Tiggo Pro models, forms the heart of the vehicle information and entertainment settings. The centre screen also projects a standard reverse camera and there are two USB ports in front and one in the second row.
As with the other Pro models, the Chery Tiggo 7 Pro comes standard with Chery’s voice command system that allows for full control of the cabin, climate control and even the one-touch electric windows and (on the Executive model) the operation of the electric panoramic sunroof.
This model received a full five-star rating from the Chinese New Car Assessment Programme (C-NCAP).
All models have ISOFIX child seat anchors, ABS brakes on all four disk wheels with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), Emergency Brake Assistance (EBA), Hill Start Assistance (HSA) and Hill Descent Control (HDC). All models have Rear Traffic Alert (RTA) and Blind Spot Detection (BSD).
On the Executive model, Chery further added a comprehensive safety package, which includes Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Front Collision Warning (FCW), Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) and a 360-degree around-view monitor.
The Chery Tiggo 7 Pro models have a 5-year / 60 000 km service plan, 5-year / unlimited kilometre roadside assistance programme and a 5-year / 150 000 km general mechanical warranty
A local fleet manager walked away with the honour of being named the ‘first’ Best Fleet Manager in the country along with a R10 000 cash prize. Additionally, a South Africa organisation won the title of the Best Company based on their road safety policies.
While still in school, he sold his first Toyota Hilux. No wonder that GD Kotze has been the Dealer Principal at Oranje Toyota in Bothaville for the past 12 years, in the heart of the country’s maize triangle. In this region, a Hilux and farming go hand in hand.
