Chery Auto is back in the Philippines and it was brought in by no less than the United Asia Auto Group Inc. (UAAGI), the brand behind the Foton brand in the Philippines.
Though it is not the first time the brand will be brought to the Philippines, UAAGI leadership feels that it is time for the revitalized brand to reenter the local market.
“The time is ripe for us to bring in a second automotive brand, and we are convinced that Chery Auto now has the right mix of design, features, technology, and pricing in its product line to make a strong impact on the Philippine market,” said UAAGI president Rommel Sytin.
Chery's initial lineup is composed of an all-crossover range -- the Tiggo 2, Tiggo 5X, Tiggo 7, and the 7-seater Tiggo 8. All models are powered by modern 1.5-liter inline-4 fuel-injected DOHC 16-valve Euro 5-compliant petrol engines (turbocharged for the Tiggo 7 and Tiggo 8) and mated to 5-speed manual transmissions or 6-speed automatics.
The entire lineup features contemporary styling and modern comfort, convenience, and safety features, while the higher-end models boast luxury car features like 10-inch UHD touchscreen displays, foot-sensing automatic power tailgates, automatic LED headlamps, LED tail lamps, cruise control, Smart Key Entry System, 6-way power-adjustable seats, LCD instrument panel, panoramic sunroof, leather seats, 18” alloy wheels, and much more.
Safety features include six airbags, front and rear radar-based driving aids, and a full suite of electronic driver-assist systems.
All models are made in Chery’s world-class state-of-the-art fully robotized plants in Wuhu, China. The brand sold over 750,000 units last year, a growth of 11 percent compared to the previous year and has been China’s biggest exporter of passenger cars in the last 16 years. Chery has sold over 7.2 million vehicles in over 80 countries. It is also a leading manufacturer of hybrid and fully electric vehicles, not just in China, but in the world.
“We are excited to bring in Chery. The new cars possess all the brand values Filipinos now look for and we are convinced that the local market will warmly receive these latest models,” Sytin added.
To emphasize their confidence in the vehicles, Chery Auto Philippines is offering an industry-leading 10-Year/1 Million-km Powertrain Warranty on top of a 5-Year General Vehicle Warranty. And to sweeten the purchase, Chery Auto Philippines is offering a 3-year FREE Preventive Maintenance Service (PMS) to all buyers of any Tiggo model.
