New spy shots of the Chery T21 SUV which will be called ‘Chery Tiggo 5’ when it hits the Chinese car market later this year. Chery has not yet announced a launch date. The Tiggo 5 is the successor of the extremely successful Chery Tiggo 3. The latter however will continue for at least another two years as a super-cheap budget-SUV.
Power will come from the good old 32hp 2.0, the engine will be mated to an updated version of Chery’s CVT. Later on a 116hp 1.6 and a new 1.4 turbo will become available as well. Some Chinese media say Chery is also working on a small-displacement diesel engine for export.
A lot of buttons around the gear lever. Large screen sitting deep in the center console. Sporty dials. Quality of the plastics seems much better than in current Tiggo 3.
The vehicle loox very production ready. A debut on the Shanghai Auto Show in April seems possible.
