The range of Chery Tiggo crossovers is already very wide, but at the Chengdu Auto Show, the company presented another version. Chery Tiggo 7 Plus is a new version of the second generation Tiggo 7, which appeared less than two years ago, and is sold in our market as Tiggo 7 Pro.
In the new Chery Tiggo 7 Plus, the “Plus” prefix does not mean an increased wheelbase or an additional row of seats. The length of the car has not changed (4500 mm). The main feature of the new modification is a different interior in a fashionable style with two displays (12.3 inches each) on a peakless panel.
The new Lion 4.0 multimedia features voice control as well as enhanced online capabilities. The center console, the tunnel have also been modernized, and instead of the not very convenient climate control touch panel, a unit with two rotating handles has been added. The Plus version will only have relatively rich trim levels with a “leather” interior.
There are few external differences between Chery Tiggo 7 Plus and the base “seven”. But you can recognize the Tiggo 7 Plus by a different radiator grill, the frame of which has been stretched under the headlights. They changed the design of the bumpers, installed fake air ducts on the front fenders, made a spoiler on the fifth door more prominent, and also installed 19-inch wheels, while the base model has a maximum of 18-inches.
The base turbo unit 1.5 (147 hp) of the new Chery Tiggo 7 Plus is the same, but it is supplemented with a 48-volt starter-generator. A variator works in tandem with this motor. The turbocharger 1.6 (197 hp) with a 7-speed preselective “robot” has also survived. The drive of such a crossover is exclusively front. In the Chinese market, Chery Tiggo 7 Plus will be sold along with the usual “seven”. Prices have not yet been announced, while the start of sales of new items is expected in the middle of autumn this year.
