“Having now been fully tested and homologated for South Africa, we can join the global launch schedule and plan to deliver the first Tiggo 7 Pro models to customers in the next couple of weeks,” says Liu.
The Tiggo 7 Pro will slot in above the Tiggo 4 Pro and below the Tiggo 8 Pro, in price, specification and size.
The model has been designed to appeal to the upper-midrange SUV market, with a comprehensive range of specifications, above average luxury and the modern technology that Chery has become known for in South Africa.
All Tiggo 7 Pro models will be powered by Chery’s next-generation 1.5 litre turbo-petrol engine with 108 kW and 210 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a new CVT transmission with 9 in-built gear steps.
As with other Tiggo Pro models, the Tiggo 7 Pro has no shortage of technology. This includes a digital instrument panel, a full HD infotainment system and digital controls for the climate control centre.
“Many of the features that our South African customers have come to love, will also be available on the Tiggo 7 Pro range. These include our omnidirectional airbag system, our 360-degree camera array for easy low-speed manoeuvring and parking and our Chery Voice Command system,” says Liu.
Chery will announce more details of the Tiggo 7 Pro range closer to the official launch date.
