This is the Chery TJ-1 (internal code name) spied on Chinese streets. As a new compact SUV under the Chery brand, it is marketed as a “light off-road” vehicle. Currently, Chery is seeking the public to help give its TJ-1 an official name and is expected to launch later in July. Chery also advertised the TJ-1 as “the only four-wheel drive in the 100,000 RMB (14,500 USD) class”.

Compute will be supported by a Qualcomm 8155 chip and supports FOTA, facial recognition, and a level 2+ driving assistance system. Other configurations include suede seats, seat heating/ventilation/massage, and a SONY audio sound system.

  1. Better let Chinese car manufacturers take over all European carmakers. We get a much better price and fuel economy as an added advantage. They know how to manage a company to make it leaner much of the opposite of European makers.
