Once known among Filipinos for the diminutive QQ supermini, Chinese automaker Chery returned to our shores bringing along an all-new lineup consisting entirely of crossovers. Among the offerings in the current Chery Auto Philippines lineup is the Tiggo 7 Pro.
The Chery Tiggo 7 Pro cuts a luxurious yet sporty impression
Launched at the 2020 Beijing Auto Show, the compact crossover is also known in its home market as the Tiggo 7 and as the T-Go 7 in North America. For the Philippine market, this is the upper-spec variant of the Tiggo 7 line, the base model being the Comfort trim level. The Tiggo 7 Pro features ample amounts of body cladding on the exterior, while the fascia adds a touch of refinement with the wide grille that conceals a Euro 5-compliant 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine that makes 145 hp and 210 Nm of torque. Let’s take a look at how much this compact crossover costs.
The Tiggo 7 Pro presents dimensions of 4,500mm in length, 1,824mm in width, and 1,746mm in height. Its design showcases LED exterior lighting on the front and rear ends of the vehicle, with the headlamps featuring a ‘follow me home’ function complemented by sharkfin daytime running lights.
An automatic tailgate comes standard
Up to five occupants can settle down on a luxurious interior, with power-adjustable seats for both the driver and front passenger. Double-stitching on touchpoints such as the dashboard reinforce the Tiggo 7 Pro’s premium feel. A large panoramic sunroof directs ambient light and fresh air into the cabin, accompanied by multicolor ambient lighting. The 10-inch touchscreen head unit offers Bluetooth as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, patched to 10 speakers.
