Initial details also suggest that the Tiggo 7 Pro will be equipped with a 360-degree camera, and wireless mobile charging, a feature that’s somehow becoming a standard feature in Chinese cars. In terms of safety, the Tiggo 7 Pro is integrated with Driver and Front Passenger airbags, as well as front side airbags.

It also has an anti-lock brake system with electronic brake-force distribution, electronic stability program, brake assist, traction control, hill start assist, hill descent assist, among others.

Under the hood, the 2021 Chery Tiggo 7 Pro is powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine that delivers 145 hp and 230 Nm of torque. The engine is connected to a continuously variable transmission. During the Tiggo 7 Pro’s pre-launch test drive, we managed to get a fuel economy of 8.7 km/l while driving at an average speed of 40 km/h along EDSA.

The official pricing of the Tiggo 7 Pro will most likely be announced during its virtual launch on January 27 at Chery Auto PH’s Facebook page. However, we’re guessing that the said compact crossover will be priced under Php 1.5 million.
