Chery Tiggo 8 Pro Max scores five-star ANCAP rating

The Chery Tiggo 8 Pro Max is the latest from the Chinese brand to achieve the full, five-star rating in the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP), joining its stablemates the Tiggo 7 Pro (crash test video below) and the Omoda 5 in attaining the five-star rating in the safety assessment.

In Malaysia, the Chery Tiggo 8 Pro was launched in July 2023 alongside the B-segment Omoda 5 as part of the brand’s re-entry into the Malaysian market.

The ANCAP rating for the Tiggo 8 Pro Max applies to all variants of the SUV, in which the three-row SUV was scored based on its stablemate, the Tiggo 7 Pro, with additional pedestrian impact tests, and ANCAP was provided with technical information to show that the test results of the Tiggo 7 Pro also apply to the Tiggo 8 Pro Max, according to the agency.

In this assessment, the Tiggo 8 Pro Max scored 88% in the adult occupant protection category, 87% in the child occupant protection category, 79% in the vulnerable road user protection category, and 86% in the safety assistance systems category. However, the third-row seats in the vehicle did not come with top tether anchors, and therefore installation of child restraints in the third row is not recommended.

      Amen to that! There’s a difference between made in China and brands from China.

    For a brand that suffers brake and axle issues, is extra important to have good crash test ratings. Glad that it delivers in this area.

    How about Euro NCAP which is the strictest ?
    ANCAP has lost its relevance and unreliable. Is this 5 star reliable ?

    Chery Tomato has the second best interior design because they know how to copy Benz. But, that is the one good thing about Chery Tomato. The car still does not drive as well as any sushi or kimchi cars. They will improve. As for “quality”, it’s no worse than anything coming out of Potong or Perutdua factories, axle broken or no broken!
