Chery South Africa has introduced an all-new flagship to its line-up – the Tiggo 8 Pro MAX.
The new model, which will slot in above the 1.6 TGDI Tiggo 8 Pro Executive, is a fitting birthday gift to the company and its fans.
Chery celebrates its first birthday, and the end of a very eventful first year, in November. Since opening its doors as a wholly owned subsidiary of Chery in November 2021, the brand has welcomed more than 10 000 customers, became a top 10 best-selling brand and grown its network of dealers to over 70 facilities.
At the heart of the new Chery flagship is a new, powerful and refined 2.0 litre turbo petrol engine.
The 2.0 TDGI engine utilises many of Chery’s newest proprietary engine technologies to deliver 187 kW at 5 500 rpm and 390 Nm from 2 000 rpm to 4 000 rpm.
The engine delivers its power to the front wheels through a seven-speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) that offers all the comfort of a normal automatic transmission, but with a quicker shift response and better fuel consumption.
The Tiggo 8 Pro was launched in February this year with an impressive range of standard features that set a new benchmark for both safety and luxury in its segment.
With the Tiggo 8 Pro MAX, Chery adds even more specifications to the standard feature list, making this the true luxury and safety benchmark in its class.
To start, the MAX has all the features of the Tiggo 8 Pro Executive. This includes Adaptive Cruise Control, multi-colour Ambient Lighting, Chery Voice Control, a large panoramic sunroof, a 12.3-inch digital instrumentation panel, a 10,25 floating infotainment touch screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and an additional 8-inch touch screen for the dual zone climate control and other vehicle features.
In the Tiggo 8 Pro MAX, Chery has added privacy glass to the rear passenger compartment and upgraded the windscreen and front side windows to thicker sound dampening glass for an even more refined driving experience. It is worth noting that the Tiggo 8 Pro Executive will in future also feature privacy glass as standard.
