It’s the rainy season yet again and the flood that goes with it gives us so much stress on day-to-day driving. The heavy outpour cuts visibility which makes the ride more difficult. It slows down traffic to a painful crawl. We may know how to traverse floodwaters that cover the curb, but can the Chery Tiggo can?
If you’re still driving a sedan or hatchback, it’s high time to switch to a taller and yet easy-to-drive vehicle—the crossover. You get more height, which gives you more space inside. More importantly, you get more ground clearance, which gives you the capability to drive over rough roads and yes, floods.
Hence, why more and more Filipinos are owning an SUV or a Crossover. And leading the charge with an offering of stylish, fully equipped, highly capable, yet surprisingly affordable, crossovers is the CHERY brand.
The most reachable CHERY model is the P695,000 Tiggo 2 that boasts a generous 186 mm of ground clearance. That’s 3-4 inches more than the ground clearance of a typical hatchback or small sedan. Not only will the extra height allow the vehicle to traverse floodwaters with ease and without the water entering the cabin, but it also enables the engine to sit higher above the water—which in turn makes the vehicle more capable of crossing a flooded stretch without the engine stalling.
The CHERY Tiggo’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 clarity. And make driving on long road trips that much more pleasurable.
The CHERY crossover lineup is composed of the subcompact Tiggo 2 and Tiggo 5X, the all-new compact Tiggo 7 Pro, and the midsize 7-seater Tiggo 8. These crossovers boast ground clearances as high as 200mm which are even higher than several of its crossover competition, and almost as high as much bigger SUVs.
Floods also spell trouble for drivers. Aside from the high ground clearance, CHERY also designed the Tiggo lineup for crossing higher levels of water with a wading depth measuring up to 600 MM. This safety feature enables the car to safely brave through floods and potholes in the Philippines’ unpredictable roads.
All Tiggo models are made in CHERY ’s world-class state-of-the-art fully robotized plants and feature luxury car amenities like 10″ UHD touchscreen displays, foot-sensing automatic power tailgates, automatic LED headlamps, LED taillamps, cruise control, Smart Key Entry System, 6-way power-adjustable seats, LCD instrument panel, panoramic sunroof, leather seats, 18” alloy wheels, and much more.
Chery Auto Philippines offers an industry-leading 10-Year/1 Million-km Powertrain Warranty on top of a 5-Year General Vehicle Warranty and 3-Year Roadside Assistance. And to sweeten the purchase, Chery Auto Philippines is offering a 3-year FREE Preventive Maintenance Service (PMS) on all Tiggo models.
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 7-seater Tiggo 8. Low down-payment and low monthly financing promos are available (subject to bank approval).
