MANILA: The first units of the all-new Chery Tiggo 7 Pro, which was introduced last January 27, were sold within 30 days due to high demand.
To date, a growing waiting list exists for the next units to be shipped, which are expected to arrive this month.
The Tiggo 7 Pro is the brand’s first all-new model since Chery entered the Philippine automotive market in November 2019 and then launched four trendy crossovers, namely, the mid-size seven-seater Chery Tiggo 8, the compact Tiggo 7, and the subcompact Tiggo 2 and Tiggo 5x.
While maintaining its focus on customers seeking for better value in new vehicles, Chery Auto Philippines is also targeting a new group of buyers who desire value but want more features.
Chery Auto Philippines President Rommel Sytin shared, “The warm market acceptance to the all-new Chery Tiggo 7 Pro is a strong indication that more and more Filipino buyers are no longer just settling for bargains or low-priced units, but are now looking for true great value, regardless of brand.”
He added, “Filipinos are now aware that they can get all the features—and even more—than what the established brands are giving, at a better price.”
Chery’s Vice President and Global Chief of Car Design Kevin Rice conceptualized the European-inspired design of the new Tiggo 7 Pro. Rice was involved in the design of Mazda vehicles, which include the MX-5 from 1999 to 2005 as the European Design Director of Hiroshima, and of BMW vehicles, for the exterior style of the previous 1, 3, and 4 Series.
With its slim LED headlamps and large, bold grille, the Tiggo 7 Pro exhibits a striking look. The daytime running lights (DRLs) are LEDs for cutting-edge road illumination.
A floating roof effect is accomplished by black wraparound rear pillars. It bears large 18-inch alloy wheels, and unique character lines.
The all-new Tiggo 7 Pro is equipped with a new 1.5-liter turbocharged DOHC 16-valve Euro-5 four-cylinder engine mated to an all-new continuously variable transmission (CVT).
The leather-covered cabin of the new Tiggo 7 Pro embodies the build quality and upscale design of its exterior.
Elegant red accents on the dashboard and the doors combine with the sporty red double stitching on the dashboard, center armrest, and leather-covered seats.
The largest-in-class 10.25-inch touchscreen six-speaker infotainment system includes USB connectivity, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Mirror Link, and Bluetooth is also available. A touch-panel regulates the air-conditioning system.
The smart key, which starts the engine, opens the windows and tailgate, and turns on the aircon with only one push of a button, is another luxury-car feature of the Tiggo 7 Pro. The stylish crossover also features wireless mobile phone charging and three USB ports.
A completely digital instrument cluster, a rear camera with rear and front proximity sensors, a tire pressure monitoring system, a push-button electronic parking brake, a power tailgate, a 360-degree HD camera, multi-color cabin ambient lighting, and a panoramic sunroof are among the features of the Tiggo 7 Pro.
The safety features of the Tiggo 7 Pro are the Isofix child-seat tethers, Hill Descent Control (HDC), Hill Assist Control (HAC), Traction Control System (TCS), Electronic Brake Assist (EBA), Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), and Anti-lock Braking System (ABS).
It also has a brake override system, which is capable of instantly overriding the throttle when the brake and gas pedals are accidentally lowered at the same time.
The Tiggo 7 Pro includes an Emergency Signal System that activates the hazard lights at increased speed if the driver abruptly brakes when moving at a faster speed to instantly alert the vehicle following behind.
The new Tiggo 7 Pro is backed by the brand’s 10-year/one-million-km engine warranty, free three-year roadside assistance, free three-year preventive maintenance service (PMS), and a five-year/150,000-km general vehicle warranty.
Currently, the all-new Chery Tiggo 7 Pro is priced at P1,198,000 since the distributor made an announcement regarding its inclusion of the safeguard tariff until March 31, 2021.
Customers can experience the cost-efficient luxury that the Tiggo 7 Pro offers at any of the 18 Chery dealerships across the country.
