Overview of the new Chinese crossover Chery Tiggo 5


Chery Tiggo - a crossover, long known to ourmotorists. Due to the fact that this car was almost not updated almost 8 years from the moment of the start of sales, its appearance and engine line were morally and physically obsolete. That is why in 2014, the Chinese brand "Cheri" decided to radically change its legendary crossover, releasing a new generation of city SUVs called Chery Tiggo 5. Reviews and review of this car - later in this article.


To begin with, it should be noted that Tiggo 5is the first model of the company "Cheri", the design of which was developed "from scratch." Now the Chinese do not "lick" the design of cars from Japanese and European counterparts and do not even produce small restyling. Of course, it was not without the help of the Germans - the company "Opel" has developed such an original and unusual design of the modern SUV Chery Tiggo 5.

Experts say that thanks to thisbright and impressive exterior, the Chinese will significantly expand the range of their potential buyers, which will make it possible to successfully compete not only in the domestic but also in the world car market. And now you can definitely say that the current "Tiggo" looks solid and rich with relatively low cost, which is also an undoubted plus.

Dimensions and capacity

Compared to its predecessor, the newcrossover "Chery" significantly "recovered" in size and approached such eminent SUVs as VolksWagen Tiguan and Land Rover Freelander. The total length of the car is now 4506 mm, width - 1841 mm, height - 1740 mm.

Dimensions increased, but the amount of luggagespace, alas, a little disappointed. You can put no more than 370 lit luggage in the trunk. Yes, and the road clearance for this large SUV is not enough - only 16.3 cm.

Chery Tiggo 5: photo and interior review

Strangely enough, but the interior design toowas developed by the Chinese with a clean slate. Now it looks much more attractive than before. By its layout, the car saloon has not changed - it is still designed for 5 people. Finishing materials deserve special attention. Finally, the "Tiggo" got rid of the noisy and hard inexpensive plastic, which was sewn all the inner front panel of the car. Now the quality of used plastic and other finishing materials is not inferior to German. And this means that the producer of "Cheri" made a huge step on the way to success and profit. Chery Tiggo 5 (photo of the interior you can see a little lower) also boasts new seats with comfortable lateral support and adjustment in several directions.

In the center of the salon is a huge multimediacenter with built-in navigation system and other "twists". The architecture of the torpedo is symmetrical, which does not load the eye with unnecessary lines and kinks. All small details in the cabin are adjusted to each other very qualitatively - it is simply impossible to notice the previous gaps. By the way, at the request of the client upholstery can be both fabric and leather. Pleased and the quality of noise insulation. Due to the lack of hard plastic inside there is no previous rumbling and creaking.

Vehicle Specification

All versions of Chery Tiggo 5 can be completedonly one gasoline engine. The basic (at the same time top) is a two-liter unit with a capacity of 139 horsepower. But several transmissions have been suggested. Depending on the configuration, the Chery Tiggo 5 is equipped with a 5-speed "mechanics" or a stepless variator.

Whatever one may say, budgetary resources are still reflectedon the technical part of Chery Tiggo 5. Test drive showed that the front drive, which is now the only one for this version of the crossover, is not always enough to cope with the sandy or swampy terrain. This moment the Chinese car manufacturer took into account: according to him, as early as 2015 two modifications of Cheri will be produced on the assembly line - with a full and front-wheel drive. Of course, it's unreasonable to use the 4x4 drive permanently, since this affects fuel consumption. Most likely, engineers will make it switchable, that is, in the urban area only two wheels will work, and when leaving the primer, all four. In the meantime, our car enthusiasts will be satisfied with what they have.

What is the price for Chery Tiggo 5?

The cost of a new crossover "Chery Tiggo 5" inRussia will begin with a mark of 650 thousand rubles. In this case, the basic equipment will include a brand-new audio system with a USB connector, a full power pack, air conditioning, rear parking assist, front airbags, and ABS and EBD systems.

It should be noted a fairly extensive set of optionsfor a price of 650 thousand rubles. And the most interesting is that almost all models of these Chinese crossovers are already equipped with air conditioning and electric windows. At the same time, such options on European "budget" are only available in medium or top-end trim levels. Perhaps, high equipment will make this car the leader of sales in the world automobile market, but as it will be in reality, time will tell.

Optional equipment

For an additional fee buyers are invited toa multi-functional multimedia system with a 7-inch touch screen, cruise control, leather upholstery and a rear-view camera. In addition to all the above options, there will be a start-stop system, ESP, EBA (electronic emergency braking of the vehicle), a driver's seat with electric adjustment, and keyless access to the salon. The price of all this "wealth" is about 819 thousand rubles, but this is not the budget cost, will you agree?
