Chery Indonesia has officially opened the order books for the Tiggo 7 Pro and Tiggo 8 Pro at the just-concluded Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS) 2022. This follows the brand’s relaunch in the republic in April this year.

The 7 Pro and 8 Pro, the two largest members of Chery’s Tiggo SUV family, are being offered there with headline-grabbing warranty packages. Setting the Chinese brand apart in a crowded market is a six-year or 150,000 km warranty, plus a 10-year or one million km engine warranty. This is a similar stunt used by Chery in South Africa, and is unprecedented in Indonesia.

The flagship Tiggo 8 Pro is a seven-seater SUV powered by a 1.6 TGDI engine with 197 PS and 290 Nm of torque. The third-generation Acteco series unit is mated to a Chery-developed seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

This premium model’s kit list includes an eight-speaker Sony sound system, multi-colour ambient lighting, a panoramic skylight and two-tone black-brown upholstery. Three screens dominate the dashboard – a 12.3-inch instrument panel, an 8.0-inch climate control screen and a central infotainment touchscreen. There’s also a full ADAS pack and a 360-degree camera to aid parking.

The Tiggo 7 Pro is a smaller five-seater SUV targeted at the “urban elite”. The 7 is powered by a 1.5L turbo engine with 150 PS and 230 Nm of torque made between 1,750 to 4,000 rpm. Power is sent to the front wheels through a CVT with nine virtual ratios.

Available kit includes a 7.0-inch LCD instrument panel, 10.25-inch central touchscreen, an 8.0-inch climate control screen, 360-degree camera, electric tailgate, wireless charging, leather seats, dual-zone auto air-con, six airbags and full ADAS.

The Omoda 5 has been spotted testing in Malaysia

The Tiggo 7 Pro and 8 Pro are among the models that will spearhead Chery’s return to Malaysia, along with the striking Omoda 5 SUV, which has been caught testing here. “Chery is continuing to work closely with local partners towards establishing assembly operations in Malaysia, as well as towards its brand renewal, which will see the development of a new nationwide sales and after-sales network to best serve Malaysians,” the company said in a statement.

No reason why we won’t be getting the big warranty as well, since Indonesia has it. What do you think of a six-year/150,000 km general warranty and a 10-year/1m km engine warranty? Good reassurance or gimmick? We’ve already detailed the Tiggo 7 Pro, Tiggo 8 Pro and Omoda 5 – click on the links for the separate posts. The Wuhu-based carmaker also has the little eQ1 EV and the Tiggo 4 Pro compact SUV in its ranks.
