South Africans have spoken - and the verdict is that the Chery Tiggo 8 Pro Max is the favoured choice of car enthusiasts.

At the prestigious South African Guild of Mobility Journalists’ Car of the Year Awards, the Tiggo 8 emerged victorious as the motor enthusiasts’ choice, as voted for by the public. This accolade is testament to the remarkable strides the Chinese automaker has made. This vehicle combines power, elegance and cutting-edge features to redefine the driving experience. Beneath the hood is a formidable 2.0-litre petrol engine, delivering an impressive output of 187kW and 390Nm.

This robust power translates into exhilarating acceleration, propelling the SUV from 0-100km/h in a mere 7.3 seconds. Paired with a seven-speed dual clutch transmission, the Tiggo 8 offers seamless gear changes and an engaging driving dynamic. Stepping inside the cabin, one is greeted by an atmosphere of refined luxury. Softtouch surfaces, sleek silver veneers and exquisite diamond pattern stitching on the seats rival those of established competitors. The interior boasts a digitised aesthetic, featuring ambient lighting and user-friendly touchscreens that provide easy access to infotainment and climate control systems. For those who prefer a more traditional approach, slim silver buttons offer tactile interaction options.

Safety is a priority, with advanced driver assistance systems ensuring a safe journey. Standard features include forward collision warning, traffic sign recognition, adaptive cruise control with emergency braking assistance, lane departure warning and blind spot monitoring. With ample space for five adults and two child-sized seats in the third row, the SUV caters to practicality and family needs. The adjustable middle row allows for customised legroom and backrest angles, while the folding capabilities of the middle and rear rows provide abundant cargo space. There is a fine balance between ride comfort and handling prowess. With highprofile tires and a 196mm ground clearance, it effortlessly glides over gravel roads. Priced from R637 900, the Chery Tiggo 8 Pro Max stands as a benchmark among crossover SUVs in its range. It is poised to captivate discerning South African drivers who demand uncompromising quality and style.
