As their name implies, crossovers are an evolution from sedans. These are passenger cars that, while not necessarily created to tackle hard-core off-road driving, are designed to traverse unexpected obstacles that Mother Nature occasionally throws our way, even knee-deep flood waters.
A crossover’s high ride height and bigger windows also grant better outward vision something that can be crucial when driving in heavy rain or fog with limited visibility. And make driving on long road trips that much more pleasurable.
In the country, there is one auto brand that sells only crossovers. It’s Chery and its product range is composed of the subcompact Tiggo 2 and Tiggo 5X, the compact Tiggo 7, and the midsize 7-seater Tiggo 8. These crossovers boast ground clearances as high 210mm and water-wading depths of as much as 600mm, which are even higher than several of its crossover competition.
All Tiggo models are powered by modern 1.5-liter inline-4 fuel-injected DOHC 16-valve Euro 5-compliant gasoline engines (turbocharged for the Tiggo 7 and Tiggo 8) and mated to manual or automatic transmissions.
To emphasize their confidence in the vehicles, Chery Auto Philippines offers an industry-leading 10-Year/One Million-km Powertrain Warranty on top of a Five-Year General Vehicle Warranty. And to sweeten the purchase, Chery Auto Philippines is offering a three-year FREE Preventive Maintenance Service (PMS) and a Three-Year Roadside Assistance on all Tiggo models.
Equally compelling reasons to buy a Chery are the company’s EC Mobile Home Service, and the Chery Auto App which is much appreciated in this time of pandemic.
The Chery Auto PH app will function as a digital showroom where customers can check out Chery’s vehicle models and their specs, see the list of all Chery dealerships nationwide, request and schedule a test drive, book an appointment for car maintenance and repair, order spare parts, inquire about specific Chery models, and request for a quotation for the Chery model they are interested in. The Chery Auto PH App also has a rewards program where users earn points for using the app to purchase a vehicle, refer a friend and schedule a service.
Prices for the new models start at P695,000 for the Tiggo 2, P818,000 for the Tiggo 5X, P1,195,000 for the Tiggo 7, and P1,280,000 for the seven-seater Tiggo 8. Easy-own financing promos are available with down payments as low as P15,000 and monthly payments as low as P5,635 (subject to bank approval).
