Chery Auto Philippines is setting its sights on a new segment of buyers who still want value but desire more luxury and premium features with its introduction of the all-new Tiggo 7 Pro compact crossover. First teased during the MIAS Wired virtual auto show last December, the official launch was held via a live streaming event on Facebook Live.
"We are excited to finally give the full reveal of our all-new Chery Tiggo 7 Pro. With its upmarket styling and luxury features, we expect it to surprise and delight Filipinos longing for the design and technology found in high-end luxury SUVs, but at a much more affordable price point," says Chery Auto Philippines President Rommel Sytin.
The all-new Tiggo 7 Pro features a big, bold grille and upscale-looking slim LED headlamps. For better illuminations, both its foglamps and daytime running lights (DRLs) are also all LED. Its upmarket styling touches include a floating roof effect achieved by black wrap-around rear pillars, distinctive character lines, and large 18-inch alloy wheels with comfort-oriented 225/60R18 tires. The rear is consistent with the luxury theme, with a red strip that connects the taillights. Beautifully integrated chrome-tipped dual tailpipes and rear spoiler enhance the visual performance and upmarket appeal.
The all-new Tiggo 7 Pro's leather-covered cabin reflects the same upscale style and premium build quality and features expressed by the exterior. Extensive side bolstering on the power-adjustable front seats give supreme comfort on long drives and project a sporty bucket seat style.
The Tiggo 7 Pro is equipped with a Smart Key which not only starts the engine but can also turn on the aircon, open the tailgate and windows. Inside, a touch-panel controls the AC system, further underscoring the luxury car feel. Infotainment is courtesy of a biggest-in-class 10.25-inch touchscreen 6-speaker system that boasts Bluetooth, Mirror Link, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and USB connectivity. It also has wireless mobile phone charging plus three USB ports for high onboard connectivity with various gadgets.
Other premium features include a panoramic sunroof, welcome lights, multi-color cabin ambient lighting, 360-degree HD camera, a power tailgate, a push-button electronic parking brake, a tire pressure monitoring system, a rear camera with front and rear proximity sensors, and a fully digital instrument cluster.
The all-new Tiggo 7 Pro is powered by a new-generation 1.5L turbocharged DOHC 16-valve Euro 5-compliant 4-cylinder engine coupled with an all-new 9-speed continuously variable transmission (CVT).
Safety features include Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Electronic Brake Assist (EBA), Traction Control System (TCS), Hill Assist Control (HDC), Hill Descent Control (HDC), and ISOFIX child-seat tethers. Other notable features include a Brake Override System, which automatically overrides the throttle when the gas and brake pedals are accidentally depressed at the same time, and an Emergency Signal System, which flashes the hazard lights at high speed if the driver suddenly brakes when traveling at high speed to more quickly alert the motorist following behind.
The all-new Chery Tiggo 7 Pro priced at Php 1,198,000. Available colors include Brilliant Teal; Blazing Black; Radiant Red; and Sporty White. As standard with all Chery Philippines vehicles, the all-new Chery Tiggo 7 Pro comes with a 10-year/1 million-km engine warranty, a 5-year/150,000-km general vehicle warranty, FREE 3 year preventive maintenance service (PMS), and FREE 3 year roadside assistance.
