In terms of appearance, the design remains consistent, adopting the Art in Motion design language. The front face is dominated by a large trapezoidal grille and sharp headlights. The rear comes with dual exhaust outlets on each side, further enhancing the sportiness of the vehicle, combined with through-type taillights.

At the same time, the new Chery Arrizo 8 runs on 18-inch multi-spoke rims.

The size of the new trims measures 4780/1843/1469 mm, and the wheelbase is 2790 mm. A new Crystal Gray exterior color has also been added for the 1.6T trim.

The overall interior layout has not changed much, instead, the biggest change is the addition of a standard Qualcomm Snapdragon 8155 chip for the 1.6T trim. Now, the voice control function supports trunk control and the passenger seat supports four-way electric adjustment. Additionally, there is a 24.6-inch dual screen (12.3-inch LCD instrument panel + 12.3-inch central control screen), coupled with a flat-bottom steering wheel.

The high-end trim is also equipped with a 12-speaker Sony audio system, ambient lighting, steering wheel heating, and seat heating. Furthermore, the new Chery Arrizo 8 also comes with advanced driving assistance functions including lane departure assist, lane change assist, front and rear collision warning, door opening warning, traffic sign recognition, adaptive cruise control, and automatic emergency braking.

Power still comes from a 1.6T or 2.0T engine. The biggest change is that the 2.0T engine is mated to Chery’s self-developed Fuzhen 8AT gearbox (the older trim is 7DCT). It is worth mentioning that this is the first 8AT gearbox independently developed by Chery in China and manufactured in large quantities. The Fuzhen 8AT adopts a two-stage planetary gear set and a Ravigne planetary gear set arranged side by side, with a speed ratio of 7.8 and a weight of 94 kg.

The 2.0T engine has a power of 187 kW (254 hp) and a peak torque of 390 Nm. It can accelerate from 0 – 100 km/h in 7 seconds. In addition, the 1.6T engine outputs 145 kW (194 hp) and 290 Nm, mated to a 7-speed DCT. The official WLTC fuel consumption is 6.5L/100km.
