    Chery Malaysia to launch more affordable, higher volume car in Q4 2024 – Tiggo 4 to rival Ativa, WR-V?

    Chery has been very aggressive in Malaysia. The speed at which the reborn brand (in our market) launched, built a network and rolled out models could very well be unprecedented. The cars are CKD locally assembled too, and there’s an EV on the way, plus more SUVs from China’s top auto exporter this year.

    We already know that the Omoda E5, the electric version of the Omoda 5, will debut in March. At a business briefing today, Chery Auto Malaysia’s product director Michael Chew revealed that the Tiggo 7 Pro will follow in Q2 2024. The C-segment five-seater SUV will take on the Proton X70 with a 1.6L four-cylinder turbo engine (197 hp/290 Nm), a long list of kit and an attractive price.

    If the Tiggo 7 Pro’s arrival is somewhat expected – we reported on it back in April 2023 and Chery Malaysia also revived a Tiggo 7 Pro Facebook group late last year – Chery saved a surprise at today’s event.

    The Tiggo 4 Pro was previewed in Malaysia back in 2022

    In the fourth quarter of this year, Chery will debut a new model, one that was described by Chew as more affordable and higher volume than its current products. This ‘My first Chery’ model would then have to be smaller and cheaper than the B-segment Omoda 5, which starts at RM108,800. The product planner did not rule out a base variant of the Omoda 5 with fewer features, but this mystery model could also be a new line.

    Remember the Tiggo 4 Pro from the reborn Chery’s first ever event in Malaysia back in 2022? The junior Tiggo isn’t actually much smaller than the Omoda 5 – it’s still classified as a B-SUV, but it looks significantly more petite in the metal compared to the O5. It also looks like a more basic product.

    At 4,318 mm long and 1,831 mm wide, the Tiggo 4 Pro is just 82 mm shorter than the Omoda 5, and both have the same width, while its 2,610 mm wheelbase is just 20 mm shorter. Compared to a Perodua Ativa, the Tiggo 4 Pro is 253 mm longer and 121 mm wider, but could it be introduced as a rival to P2’s turbocharged SUV and the Honda WR-V?

    Elsewhere, the Tiggo 4 Pro is equipped with either a 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine with a CVT automatic gearbox, or a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated four-pot, which pairs with either the CVT or a five-speed manual. By the way, the Ativa tops out at RM73,400 while the WR-V is priced from RM89,900 to RM107,900. Browse the gallery below and tell us what you think.

  • 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?

  • 2021 Chery Tiggo 4 Pro in SA – 1,000,000 km warranty!

    2021 Chery Tiggo 4 Pro in SA – 1,000,000 km warranty!

    Chery has just launched the new Tiggo 4 Pro in South Africa, and its one million-km warranty has everybody talking. According to the automaker, the warranty comprises two phases, starting with a standard five-year or 150,000 km factory warranty.

    The remaining phase is a complimentary extension of five years and 850,000 km that specifically covers the engine. This extension will automatically kick into force once the first phase of warranty has run its course, but on the condition that the original owner still owns the vehicle.

    Needless to say, the warranty extension is not transferable. For it to remain valid, owners must have the vehicle serviced, maintained and repaired with genuine parts by an authorised service centre. Chery also stipulates that owners must never miss (or be late for that matter) a service, and that the cars are not used in extreme conditions, even as taxis or security vehicles.

    2021 Chery Tiggo 4 Pro in SA – 1,000,000 km warranty!

    There are five variants of the Tiggo 4 Pro on offer, with prices ranging from 269,900 rand (RM73k) for the entry-level model to 359,900 rand (RM97k) for the range topper. All five come with the same warranty coverage, including turbocharged models.

    Base models get a 1.5 litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine developing 113 PS and 138 Nm of torque, paired with either a six-speed manual or CVT. The top three trims get the more potent 1.5 litre turbo mill, which produces 147 PS and 210 Nm of torque. Transmission options are the same. So, what do you think of the one million kilometre warranty?
