Mid-range model slots in between the Tiggo 4 Pro and flagship Tiggo 8 Pro with the same drivetrain as the latter.

Front facia resembles the Tiggo 8 Pro rather than the Tiggo 4 Pro.

Confirmed for South Africa last month, Chery has officially divulged price and spec details of the new Tiggo 7 Pro that completes its local SUV/crossover onslaught.

As evidenced by its name, the Tiggo 7 Pro slots in between the Tiggo 4 Pro and Tiggo 8 Pro as the returning Chinese marque’s mid-spec model that seats five and mirrors the latter by offering a choice of two models powered by a single powerunit.

Styled as per Chery’s Life in Motion design language, the Tiggo 7 Pro rides on the same T1X platform that underpins the Tiggo 4 Pro and Tiggo 8 Pro with dimensions of 4 500 mm in overall length, a wheelbase of 2 670 mm, height of 1 746 mm and width of 1 842 mm.

Claimed boot space is 475-litres, which increases to 1 500-litres with the 60/40 split rear seat folded down.

Rear facia incorporates Tiggo 4 Pro elements, but is largely unique to the Tiggo 7 Pro.

As mentioned, the Tiggo 7 arrives in South Africa with a choice of two trim levels – Distinctive and Executive – both powered by the same in-house developed 1.5 T-GDI engine used in the Tiggo 4 Pro.

Producing an unchanged, from the Tiggo 4 Pro, 108kW/210Nm, the unit is mated as standard to a CVT with drive going to the front wheels only. Somewhat surprisingly, no fuel consumption figures were divulged.
