Chery Tiggo 4 Pro previewed in Malaysia – entry B-SUV with 1.5T CVT, to kick off range at below RM100k?

Chery Tiggo 4 Pro previewed in Malaysia – entry B-SUV with 1.5T CVT, to kick off range at below RM100k?

We’ve covered the bold Omoda 5, C-segment Tiggo 7 Pro and the flagship seven-seater Tiggo 8 Pro – now is the turn of the baby of Chery’s SUV range earmarked for Malaysia, the Chery Tiggo 4 Pro. Looks small doesn’t it? Much smaller than the Omoda 5? We’ve seen both in the metal and we think so, but the dimensions tell a different story.

The Tiggo 4 Pro is a B-SUV, just like the Omoda 5. At 4,318 mm long and 1,831 mm wide, the junior Tiggo is just 82 mm shorter than the Omoda 5, and both have the same width. The Tiggo 4’s 2,610 mm wheelbase is just 20 mm shorter than the Omoda 5’s. Despite what your eyes tell you, this little SUV is about the same size as the wild Omoda, with just a hair’s length in difference. Goes to show how important design is.

The Tiggo 4 Pro is powered by a 1.5 litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine making 147 PS at 5,500 rpm and 210 Nm of torque between 1,750 and 4,500 rpm. This is the same engine available in the Tiggo 7 Pro and it’s paired to a CVT automatic gearbox. This model’s entry-level engine is a 1.5 litre naturally-aspirated four-pot with 111 hp/138 Nm, which pairs with either the CVT or a five-speed manual.

The Tiggo 4 Pro’s exterior isn’t quite a scaled down Tiggo 7 Pro, but the interior is, sporting the familiar horizontal layout and piano keys below the central AC vents. It’s a neat and stylish design, livened up here by splashes of red on the stitched leather dash trim, door cars and seats – an appropriate touch of sport for the most youthful model in the range.

The centre console differs from the Tiggo 7’s. It’s more conventional – out goes the big square screen for the AC controls, replaced by touch panels. The stubby gear knob and bare space between the seats make way for a regular gear lever and a handy flat slot for your phone. The AC is auto dual-zone and there’s an electronic parking brake with auto hold, so the junior Tiggo isn’t basic.

At all. Like big brother 7, it also gets a digital LCD meter panel (7.0-inch), a 10.25-inch infotainment touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, 360-degree around view monitor, rear AC vents, leather and a powered driver’s seat. And since this is a Chinese car, a sunroof too. Safety wise, it’s the standard six airbags with ADAS and a tyre pressure monitor.

What do you think of the Chery Tiggo 4 Pro? This demo car’s exact spec at RM100k, deal or no deal? Would a one million km engine warranty be enough peace of mind?

    Great mileage warranties r subjected to huge “service conditions”.
    The criteria Cherry must fulfill is proper establishment of a network of solid service centres.Not just any Cinaapek tyre shop at Jalan Gombak,listed as their “authorised service centre”.
    No sane carlover bound by a 10 year HP contract, wants to” regret “when the after sales service sucks.
    Hopefully,they wont end up like the Naza dudes who failed and left thousands of Kia,peugeot,Chevy owners in a limbo.

    Wow, the Chery model got Apple Carplay and Android Auto. This give a big slap to Proton who still resist to offer AA and AP. If this model launched with the price below RM 110k for flagship it gonna give a tough fight to X50. Btw Chery need to improve its after sales service by appointing more dealers and standby more spare parts to fight X50.

      Before this, many comment saying all new cars should have Apple Carplay and Android Auto (AC/AA) but never specify wired or wireless one. When Alza AV 2022 come out, many complain why wired AC/AA? Then come along Veloz with wireless one and you know the rest of the story.

      Then some people say “eh, why cannot watch videos while driving car ah?” even after using AC/AA.. last2 using cable, install mirroring app to be able bypass. Then what’s the point of mati2 must have AC/AA?

      If you’re not that kind of user, and you genuinely use AC/AA for its purpose AND you think that having AC/AA is crucial in choosing a car; like, “ok, any car without AC/AA, I will never consider to buy”; (even though belambak aftermarket kat luar if really have no choice), then go for it.

    Car ownership matter is not limited to the engine only niah… Lots of other aspects to be taken into consideration. Learn from Naza’s mistakes!!!! Pity all the Kia, Peugeot and Chevrolet ownners.

    It seems P1 cybertroopers are going full force on this. Kudos to Cherry for bringing all the models here. hoping for CVT or standard auto instead of DCT
