Chery T11 Tiggo for RM80,292

Chery Tiggo

The Chery T11 Tiggo is now available in Malaysia for a sum of RM80,292. While it looks much like a combination of the second generation Toyota RAV4 rear and the 2nd gen Honda CR-V and Naza Sorento’s front, the chassis is not carried from either vehicles.

Chery’s local distributor Alado says the T11 Tiggo sold here is powered by a Mitsubishi-based engine, but I did some research online and was confused by what I found. The Chery T11 Tiggo is available in other markets with two 2.0 litre engine options – one is a 1,997cc Mitsubishi 4G63 engine making 123 horsepower and 170Nm of torque. The other is powered by a Chery-designed ACTECO engine codenamed SQR484F which was developed by Austrian firm AVL. [Source] This engine family has also been commissioned by other automakers like Fiat, which will use the 1.6 litre and 1.8 litre ACTECO engines in it’s China-produced cars.

The Chery ACTECO SQR484F is a 1,971cc DOHC engine with a 10.2:1 compression ratio and produces 129 horsepower at 5,750rpm and 180Nm of torque at 4,000rpm, which matches the specs Alado quoted for our local Tiggo. [Source] In the Chery T11 Tiggo’s application, the engine is only available with a 5-speed manual at the moment.

Some basic specs – 5 seats, 2WD drivetrain, 3-spoke steering wheel, dual SRS airbags, CD player, heated front seats, antilock brakes, electronic brake distribution, and power steering. The rear hatch is of the side-hinged design, which Honda recently abandoned with the new 3rd generation Honda CR-V.

At RM80k, the Chery T11 Tiggo is a reasonably attractive SUV that manages to keep the price down with equipment levels that are only the necessities – not many people require 4WD. I’m not quite sure at this point whether the Tiggo is a CBU import or locally assembled. There was previously talk about having the Tiggo assembled at either Oriental Assemblers in Johor or at one of Proton’s plants – but I am not sure if this has happened or not.

    the exterior is not bad i think. the specs are quite good, it's hard to find an RM80k car with EBD in our country! maybe the main problem with chinese autos is that nobody knows about its reliability. finding spare parts is another problem.

      I sis a test drive with tiggo 1.6 & 2.0 litre engine. When it comes to the price, it is very competitive. Don’t compare it with japanese or continental cars. Just compare it with our local made cars, then you can see a lot of difference in term of design, engine, price and your own satisfaction. Need to get this kind of car

        Pada 3 nov 2010 tiggo 2.0 auto yang dibeli bulan mac 2010 ditenggelami air banjir hingga keparas dashboard dan telah ditunda ke dealer butterworth tempat pembelian dibuat. Tapi agak dukacita kerana services yang diberikan amat mendukacitakan saya dan charges yang dikenakan ke atas spare parts dan labour terlalu tinggi dan semuanya membebankan pengguna, Perkhidmatan yang diberikan lambat dan tidak diberi keutamaan sedangkan kes ini adalah terpencil dan melibatkan mangsa banjir apatah lagi pembiayaan semuanya tidak langsung dibiayai insuran dan tanpa diskaun harga bahan alat ganti. Pada pandangan saya pembelian model ini adalah tidak digalakkan kepada pengguna baru, sekian terima kasih.

    Great Price but is the Product Great? That's another story. Work a bit harder, for extra RM10K+ can get a Hyundai Tucson 2.0 2WD. Work even harder with extra RM20K+, can get a Kia Sportage 2.0 4WD CKD. Like NiceCar said, they really have to work on winning people's confidence of forking out money for a China car. Even Chery Sedans isn't doing so well so SUV would be a more tougher market.

    I second the remark that it may be better to buy a slightly used CRV or RAV4 than buying a new Cherry.

    However, if it was powered by the 4G63 (from the looks of it, the SOHC one, similar to the perdana) then parts and service shouldnn;t be a big issue.

    i have viewed the car at the Ampang branch.

    There are major big problem with the quality of the finishing, i.e. the dashboard, the plastic and all… looks rough and of poor quality.

    Even the fittings are not inline and goes out of place here and there… you have to see to believe.

    But there is saying, what do you expect for RM80K.

      i owned a chery t11. if you just want a car for transportation of people and/or cargoes then it is OK and the space will allow to put in alot of things but if you want to show off and start to compare with the japanese or continental design, you may be disappointed.

        Hi Linus,

        Thanks for your quick feedback. The main reason I consider Chery Tiggo T11 is because I find it is good value car (after my test drive) with 2.0 litre engine with tough car body (safety), spaces, not under power drive, good car apperance, and low service maintence, handy service centre and have a local manufacturer spare part plant in Pahang. The only concern is realiability and second hand resell value of course I understand China car is yet to be populared in Malaysia but I’m sure it’ll become good demand after people realise the real quality of China Car. Beside, in the market I don’t see any 2.0 litre engine with tough car body in the market. Please clarify what you means the disappointment against japanese or continental design car, can you more specify? Any negative comment so far after you bought this car? TQ

          The body is tough and the car is relatively heavy. Chery does not have quality interior. I am currently quite happy with the car. I thought i may have problem getting parts too but the car came with 5 years warranty and i have met a few chery owners. once the warranty is over, you can choose to buy the parts and use outside workshop or use agent workshop. the parts can be purchase over the chery office and it is not exorbitant . they are priced just like any original parts of any made.

          just made sure that you service the car regularly. if you own a car you have to pay the price of being a car owner…

          the fuel consumption is not pleasant in city traffic. i guess because the car is huge and heavy.

          but the car came with many things that most other brands cannot provide after visiting other brands of SUV..

          the spare tyre is with a sport rim ( all other brands only give you ordinary wheel)
          the roof racket is fully fitted (most of the SUV only come with parallel bar)
          there is a sun roof (suzuki SUV don’t have)
          the back seats can be fully removed… and can convert it into a temp van..(most of the SUV cannot)
          all windows incl sun roof will automatically closed and all lights automatically off when you remove the car key. (i understand only certain high end car provides this)

    On this new lauch, I see lesser crticism than the earlier launch. It is a good sign. China has became world number3 motor vehicle producer in 2006. If you take a look at Shanghai Motor 2007, you can feel the strong emerging of China local brands.

    Chery has become China's number one car producer in March 2007, overtaken GM, VW and others. Tiggo also has became the best seller SUV in March 2007.

    The Acteco engine is one of the best engine in the world. Even other manufacturer like FIAT also willing to use it on their cars.

    I do not think that you would regret of buying a Tiggo for RM80k, compare with buying a CRV at RM140k.

    Malaysian, please do not look down on China as they are advancing to become one of the most sience and technology advanced country in the world.

    alo malaysian…come on lar..itz only typical malaysian punye thinking. China is now very advance. Since it is a very big country, there are million of labours that need jobs. That's why most of China products are cheap. Their cost of production are very low. Those who studied business and costing, i'm sure they know about this. If their products are not good enough, then why is it many countries in the world imported China cars? Every country has their own level of quality, they won't simply export products without doing any testing on them. Come on lar, don't simply say. GOD gives us two eyes, two ears.Listen from one side, don't straightly believe it. Go, see and listen the explaination from those who already owned the car. Look at it wif your own eyes, test drive wif your own hands and legs, then only you know the answers. THINK Malaysian!

    i purchase my chery tiggo T11 last summer, within the first four months i"ve had nothing but trouble for the price i've paid for it a total of $43,000.00. The car is now 16 mths old and my crankshaft is damage.. what the hell ????

    My car has been for its service every six months ($460 a full service) in bermuda. I believed i purchased this car with the problem it has and the dealer talking bout the car should be serviced every 5000 kil come on bermuda is not even half the size of the US that is crazy!!!!! So believe it or not the dealer is saying that i"ve broke the warranty SAD but true.

Have u seen tis kind of company?

    The workmanship inside & outside are of inferior quality, you must test drive to ” appreciate ” that !

    I won’t dare to buy, even it is RM 40,000.00.
    Parts will be another nightmare for you !

    3 of my friends have ” kena” , the highest trade in value for their Tiggo, which stands as merely RM 32,000 after hardly use for only 1 year, and that’s the highest amongst 5 car dealers who can accept their cars!

    Just try it if you dare !
