Why The Chery Tiggo 7 Pro Offers Great Value For Money


With an affordable range of reliable and stylishly modern sports utility vehicles, like the recently introduced Chery Tiggo 7 Pro, Tiggo 4 Pro and the Tiggo 8 Pro, Chery is fast becoming a household name. The automaker recently reported its monthly sales now exceed 1000 units which indicates the brand is quickly gaining popularity in South Africa. As a result, Chery has become one of the top ten new car brands available in South Africa.

Is The Chery Tiggo A Good Car?

As with all cars, the answer depends on your requirements as each one offers something different. If you’re a single professional, a couple, or have young children, then the Chery Tiggo 4 Pro should meet your needs. For bigger families or those who just need more room, the Chery Tiggo 8 Pro offers seating for seven people plus ample storage space.

If you want something in between, the Chery Tiggo 7 Pro is the perfect option. While it doesn’t have seven seats, it has a wide range of premium features similar to the bigger Chery Tiggo 8 Pro. Not to mention a comfortable drive with sufficient head and legroom for all occupants and decent boot space.

The luxurious features included in all of the top-spec Chery models make them stand out among their competitors. With voice control, a panoramic sunroof, quality headlights, comfy seats and a Sony-driver audio system, it’s hard to ignore just how much value you get at a lower price than similar SUVs on the market today.

Why You Should Buy The Chery Tiggo 7 Pro

While both the Tiggo 4 Pro and the Tiggo 8 Pro are certainly impressive, the recently launched Chery Tiggo 7 Pro appears to be the happy medium.

Not only does the Chery Tiggo 7 Pro drive incredibly well, but its suspension also provides the perfect balance between comfort and firmness for added control, even around corners. It may not be sporty but it does pack a punch and handles dirt tracks and the often-neglected tarmac roads in South Africa with ease.

The steering is light and responsive but you can also firm it up using the different built-in Drive modes. With the ECO and SPORT modes, you can channel more power when you need it most or simply cruise along to save on fuel. With a reported fuel economy rate of 6,8 L/100 km, your budget will go even further.

Interior Features And Flawless Voice Control

The seating positions are another highlight, not to mention the big sunroof that makes the cabin feel even roomier and fresh. Better yet, you can use voice commands to tilt, open, and close the sunroof. With natural language processing, you can also use voice commands to open or close the windows and climate settings. Unlike many other brands, even high-end models from big manufacturers, the Chery voice control system works flawlessly.

While features may vary depending on the variant, the top-spec executive model is packed with everything you need, including:

  • cruise control
  • 6 airbags
  • anti-lock brakes
  • brake assist
  • lane-departure warning
  • electric windows and mirrors
  • remote central locking
  • keyless start

The tech-laden driving experience is another selling point of the Chery Tiggo 7 Pro. With its large 10,25-inch touchscreen display, you have easy access to the car’s various functions and settings, including Bluetooth connectivity, and a variety of other features.

The touchscreen is easy to see and control, and the sound quality is excellent. For those who enjoy a hands-free experience, the Tiggo 7 Pro offers Bluetooth connectivity and steering wheel-mounted controls. It also includes a built-in navigation system that makes it easy to get around.

The 7-inch digital driver cluster is also a handy feature, providing all the information you need while the system provides seamless smartphone support for audio streaming apps such as Audible and YouTube Music. The main display links to a multi-camera system displaying a 360-degree view all around the vehicle.

Power, Performance And Safety

The Chery Tiggo 7 Pro is fun to drive in town or on the open road as it offers sufficient power and torque without sounding overwhelmed when putting your foot down. There is no wheel slip when pulling away from a standstill position and you can confidently accelerate to overtake even on wet roads.

Under the bonnet is a smooth, powerful but economical 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine. It delivers 108kW and 210Nm of torque to the front wheels through a responsive Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) as standard.

In Normal Drive mode, the revs stay low for a more relaxed ride, but you still have enough throttle response to take advantage of occasional gaps in highway traffic. But, when switching to Sport mode, the Chery Tiggo 7 Pro springs to life with higher revs and shorter gear ratios for additional power.

In terms of vehicle safety, the Chery Tiggo 7 Pro is right up there with the best (and most expensive). A high-strength body adds to occupant safety along with the following:

  • Omnidirectional Airbag System
  • 360-degree Allround View Monitor*
  • Rear Park Distance Control Sensors
  • Rear View Camera
  • TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring System)
  • ABS & EBD & BAS (Brake Assist System)
  • ESP (Electronic Stability Program)
  • Hill Start Assist and Hill Decent Control
  • Blind Spot Detection
  • Rear Traffic Alert
  • Lane Departure Warning*
  • Front Collision Warning*
  • Automatic Emergency Braking*
