Chery Tiggo 7 Pro here later this year

Chinese brand to launch second SUV model behind already available Omoda 5

18 Aug 2023

CHERY will introduce its petrol-powered Tiggo 7 Pro mid-size SUV to Australia later this year, the three variant range to be available in both front- and all-wheel drive configuration, all featuring the Chinese manufacturer’s 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine.


The Tiggo 7 Pro will join the Omoda 5 in local showrooms, offering what the importer says is a “stylish and feature packed” model that is already sold in over 80 countries. Since its debut, Chery has sold over three million examples of its Tiggo SUV range, the Tiggo 7 Pro notching up more than 500,000 units in over 50 countries since its debut in 2020.


Fitting in the upper-small SUV segment, the five-seat Tiggo 7 Pro is expected to rival the likes of the GWM Haval Jolion and Nissan Qashqai.


The Tiggo 7 Pro measures 4500mm in length, 1824mm in width, 1746mm in height and rides on a 2670mm wheelbase. Ground clearance is listed at 210mm and cargo space 475 litres. Kerb weight is noted at 1497kg in front-wheel drive form.


In its home market, the Chery Tiggo 7 Pro is tuned to output 147kW of power at 5500rpm and 290Nm of torque from 2000 – 4000rpm. It is offered exclusively with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. WLTC combined cycle fuel consumption is listed at 7.1 litres per 100km.


The model rides on strut (front) and multi-link (rear) suspension and is halted by four-wheel disc brakes. Electrically-assisted steering is fitted as standard with 18- and 19-inch alloy wheel options available.


Chery has yet to announce local specification or pricing but has confirmed three grades will head Down Under: the front-wheel drive Pro Urban and Elite, and all-wheel drive Ultimate.


In its home market, the Tiggo 7 Pro arrives generously equipped, a characteristic we expect to be seen on Australian models.


Externally, the model range arrives with features including electric folding and heated wing mirrors, a panoramic sunroof, tailgate spoiler, auto LED headlights, DRLs and tail-lights, roof rails and privacy glass.


Inside, we find Bluetooth connectivity, a 10.25-inch infotainment array with voice control and Apple CarPlay / Android Auto connectivity, six-speaker sound, wireless device charging, dual-zone climate control, a 7.0-inch digital instrumentation screen, 360-degree parking camera, and front and rear USB charging ports.


On the safety front, and once more in domestic form, the Tiggo 7 Pro features omnidirectional airbags, a “super strong” body, and an extensive list of electronic driver aids including rear parking sensors, speed limit reminder, tyre pressure monitoring, anti-lock braking, traction and stability control, hill start and descent control, blind spot monitoring, door open warning, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, forward collision warning and autonomous emergency braking (AEB).


Seven colours are available including white, silver, grey, blue, black and red.


Chery offers its currently available Omoda 5 with a seven-year / unlimited-kilometre warranty. That model also receives a five-star ANCAP safety rating.


“As the Tiggo 7 Pro arrives on Australian shores in the coming months, it brings with it an impressive international sales history and an award-winning reputation for blending style, safety and technology,” said Chery Australia managing director, Andy Zhang.


“This, coupled with Chery’s commitment to delivering unmatched value to Australian new-car buyers, is set to elevate the driving experience to new heights within this category.”
