The latest spy shot of the new Chery Tiggo 5 SUV, straight from the factory floor where mass production has started. The Chery Tiggo 5 will officially debut on the Guangzhou Auto Show in late November and it will be launched on the China car market around the same time. Last week we saw the first official pics of the Tiggo 5, showing the trendy SUV only in boring brown. It looks much better in red.
The Tiggo 5 is a new SUV for the Chery brand, it will be positioned above the ever-continuing Chery Tiggo 3. Lone engine at launch will be a 132hp 2.0 petrol, mated to a 5-speed manual or a 7-speed CVT. Price of the 2.0 will start around 120.000 yuan and end around 150.000 yuan. Size: 4506/1841/1740, wheelbase is 2610.
In 2014 a 1.6 turbo and a 1.4 turbo will be added to the line-up. The 1.6 turbo will get 155hp and 210nm, so it will slot above the 2.0 in the lineup. The specs of the 1.4 turbo are yet unknown.
Beige and gray interior not as inspiring as red exterior, but it all looks neat enough. Dials very sporty. Screen very big. CVT gearbox here. The Tiggo 5 will compete in a hyper competitive market with more than 30 cars from different brands fighting for the fat Chinese wallets.
The 5 sits a bit lower than TIGGO, we bet that is meant to be hip.
New Chery logo. Not too much chrome. Chery workers are a blurred bunch.
