Chery Tiggo 8 Pro wins in Middle East
The Chery Tiggo 8 Pro range is Saudi Arabia’s SUV with the most advanced technology.
Launched in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East a mere eight months ago, the Tiggo 8 Pro has quickly established itself as a top-seller in the mid-sized luxury SUV market.
The market success of the Tiggo 8 Pro has not escaped the notice of Saudi Arabian media, who selected the 1.6 TGDI turbo-petrol Tiggo 8 Pro model with seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission for its annual best-in-class vehicle tests.
The Tiggo 8 Pro emerged from this competition as the winner of the “2021 SUV with Best Advanced Technology” Award. It received this high award from both Saudi Auto and Sport Motor magazines, making it the models first double award in the country.
Chery launched the Tiggo 8 Pro range in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East in June 2021, and it has already seen a six-time increase in sales over the previous model.
According to the judges, the unique combination of ultra-modern technology and real-world affordability has made the Chery Tiggo 8 Pro the natural choice.
The judges noted the model’s TGDI engine, which was selected as a Top 10 China Heart engine for its efficiency and power delivery, the smart LED crystal light technology, the multi-screen information and entertainment systems and the 3D-designed leather clad seats in its list of highlights.
Judges further noted a low 34 decibel interior noise level at speed, which was best-in-class.
The Tiggo Pro range has topped the sales charts in its class in many markets across the world, including Russia, the Middle East and markets in South America. At the same time, Chery has won awards on all these continents.
“While the Tiggo 8 Pro was launched outside of the period of eligibility for the SA Car of the Year competition, its sibling the Tiggo 4 Pro is a finalist in the current competition. We look forward to similar success for the Tiggo 8 Pro next year,” says Tony Liu, Executive Deputy General Manager of Chery South Africa.
The Chery Tiggo 8 Pro range is available at 50 dealers across South Africa with a starting price of R496 900. This price includes a very high level of luxury and safety as standard, including at least six airbags, leather upholstery, round-view cameras and an electrically adjustable driver’s seat.
As with the Tiggo 4 Pro, all Tiggo 8 Pro models are also sold with a 1-million kilometre mechanical warranty.
