Chery has unveiled the Tiggo 8 sports crossover with a new 2.0-liter turbo engine from the Kunpeng line. The “charged” modification develops 254 horsepower and 390 Nm of torque, differs from the usual Tiggo 8 by bumpers, rims, exhaust system and interior. The declared dynamic characteristics of the Tiggo 8 Kunpeng Edition: acceleration from standstill to 100 km / h in 7.5 seconds and braking distance from 100 km / h – 38.5 meters.
The basis of the Chery sports crossover is the usual Tiggo 8, but the interior of the top version is the same as that of the Tiggo 8 Pro. However, the outside of the Kunpeng Edition cannot be confused with other “eights”: the novelty has original bumpers and a radiator grille, special decor, and the easiest way to recognize the most powerful Tiggo 8 is the four chrome exhaust pipes.
It is known that the new 254-strong (390 Nm) gasoline “turbo four” 2.0 is combined with a 7-speed preselective “robot”. The type of drive is not specified, but in the domestic market, the Tiggo 8 Kunpeng Edition will most likely be front-wheel drive.
Chery promises to reveal all the details about the sports crossover on July 17 – on this day, the full specifications of the Tiggo 8 Kunpeng Edition and prices in the Chinese market will be published.
In the future, the units of the Kunpeng line should appear on the CheryExeed LX, as well as on the Tiggo 8 Plus PHEV plug-in hybrid.
