One of South Africa’s biggest automotive news last year was the return of Chery to Mzansi. Since then, the Chinese automaker launched 42 new dealers across South Africa and launched their entry-level SUV – the Chery Tiggo 4 Pro.

Chery SA said due to the success of the Tiggo 4 Pro and the growth in customer, and dealer demand has prompted them to expedite the launch of the Tiggo 8 Pro. Chery adds that the Tiggo 8 Pro has already been tested locally and homologated for our market.
The Chinese automaker’s local arm also revealed that two models of the 7-seater Tiggo 8 Pro will be available at launch. Both will be fitted with Chery’s award-winning 1.6 TGDI petrol-engine, which used advanced thermal management, adaptive turbo charging and direct injection to deliver 136 kW and 290 Nm.
Chery SA claims both models will also offer industry-leading levels of luxury and technology. This includes features such as Around View Monitor, an 8-speaker SONY sound system, two high definition TFT displays (with a third in the flagship model) and dual-zone climate control with pharmaceutical grade N95 air filtration.
More details on spec, pricing and other information on the Tiggo 8 Pro will be released closer to the Tiggo 8 Pro’s local launch.
