Chery updates its Tiggo 8 Pro range

Chery has made an even more compelling argument for customers to buy its larger Tiggo 8 Pro and Tiggo 8 Pro MAX with an upgrade offering more features, new styling and a wholly redesigned interior.

What’s new?

There is no mistaking the upgraded Tiggo 8 Pro MY2023 for its predecessor or any other midsize luxury seven-seater on the road.


Taking centre stage on the new, upgraded model, it boasts a brand-new grille and illuminated Chery logo.

The grille is a reinterpretation of the “galaxy full of stars” design that is used on all Tiggo Pro models, which narrows towards a point above the logo.

The Chery logo in the grille uses an array of LED lights to light up in a gradual manner, creating the impression that the Tiggo 8 Pro is coming to life.

At the rear, the vehicle has completely redesigned light clusters that are connected by a LED light bar between them.


Probably the biggest change is on the inside. While the MY2023 Pro and Pro MAX are an evolution from the outside, the interior is all new.

The dual-cluster design of the previous Tiggo 8 Pro has been changed and replaced with two thin and connected 12.35” screens that together form a digital screen of 24.7” long.

The section of the screen in front of the driver will normally display vehicle information and speed, while the section to the right will take care of infotainment controls.

In the previous Tiggo 8 Pro, there was a third screen, mounted on the lower level of the centre console. This screen, which took care of the climate controls, has been replaced by a set of haptic touch-sensitive buttons that are both easier to control and close at hand for both the driver and front passenger.


The Tiggo 8 Pro is also equipped with the latest Bosch ESP 9.3 body electronic stability system.

Moreover, the Tiggo 8 Pro Max is also equipped with advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) integrating more than 10 kinds of intelligent driving assistance functions. In this, the newest version, Chery has upgraded many of the ADAS systems to level 2 autonomy.

In the New Tiggo 8 MY2023 range, the intelligent voice command has some added updates, which include open offline navigation and heated and ventilated seats to mention a few.


In terms of performance, Chery has decided to retain the existing powertrains, namely the 1.6 TGDI engine (145 kW and 290 Nm) and in the Tiggo 8 Pro MAX the 2.0 TDGI engine with 187 kW and 390 Nm.


Tiggo 8 Pro 1.6T Executive (R609 900) and Tiggo 8 Pro MAX 2.0T Executive (R669 900).
