Chery Tiggo 8 Pro SUV

The Tiggo 8 Pro is a luxurious SUV setting new standards for SUVs

The Chery Tiggo 8 Pro has just launched in South Africa to great acclaim. Our motoring media has been enthusiastic, to say the least, about this exceptionally well-appointed and competitively-priced 7-seater SUV. It’s not like we are not used to the best of the best in motoring, but let’s look at how this Tiggo has been received in other markets.

The 8 Pro range was launched in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East in June last year and sales have rocketed. It has already won several media awards in Saudi.

The Chery Tiggo 8 Pro 1.6 TGDI turbo-petrol with seven-speed dual-clutch auto transmission won the annual best-in-class trophy. It was also awarded the 2021 SUV with Best Advanced Technology by both Saudi Auto and Sport Motor magazines – a rare double award!

According to the judges, the Tiggo 8 Pro’s unique combination of ultra-modern technology and real-world affordability has made this Chery the natural choice. They specifically noted the TGDI engine, which was a Top 10 China Heart engine for its efficiency and power delivery, the smart LED crystal light technology, the multi-screen infotainment systems and the designer leather seats in its list of highlights. The ultra-quiet 34-decibel interior noise level at speed was also deemed best in class.

In fact, the Chery Tiggo 8 Pro has been launched all over the world by now and has won awards in every market it entered. So what about South Africa?

The Tiggo 8 Pro was launched outside the period of eligibility for this year’s SA Car of the Year competition, but its sibling Tiggo 4 Pro was and is now a finalist in the current competition. Chery South Africa fully expects the Tiggo 8 Pro to feature in next year’s competition.

When Chery launched the Tiggo 8 range in South Africa, it really threw down the gauntlet in the SUV segment. Instead of launching a price-point base model with only the most basic features, this Chery takes a full set of luxuries as its foundation and builds on that for its next trim level.

The base model starts at R496,900* and you will get a comprehensive suite of luxury and safety features as standard. These include six airbags, leather upholstery, round-view cameras, an electrically-adjustable driver’s seat, and the list goes on.

As with the Tiggo 4 Pro, the 8 Pro comes with the mind-bending 1-million kilometre mechanical warranty. The Chery Tiggo 8 Pro has been declared a winner around the world and here in South Africa. Why not see for yourself why this car is creating such a buzz – book a test drive today.
