Chery has launched its flagship SUV–the Tiggo 8 Pro–in Nepal

Last year, Chery made a comeback in Nepal with the launch of its entry-level SUV–the Tiggo 4 Pro. Now, SPG Automobiles Pvt. Ltd, the sole distributor of the Chery vehicles, has launched the company’s flagship SUV model–the Tiggo 8 Pro–here. The seven-seater luxury SUV is powered by a 1.6L TGDI engine that is mated to a seven-speed DCT.


Design

The Tiggo 8 Pro’s exterior design is based on the ‘Peak Grille’ concept; the SUV gets a matrix diamond-like grille and slim LED headlamps with integrated turning signals. On the rear, the SUV gets LED tail lamps with sequential turn signals and LED brake lights. The vehicle stands on 18-inch alloy wheels. 

Inside, the luxury SUV comes with a black-brown themed cabin with faux-leather upholstered seats. Among the front seats, the driver seat gets six-way electrically adjustable features with a memory and welcome function. The front passenger seat is four-way adjustable and gets a sleeping headrest as well. Similarly, the second-row seats come with manual front and rear adjustment with three headrests, and the third-row seats get two headrests.

On the dashboard is a four-way adjustable steering wheel with mounted controls for audio, bluetooth connectivity, cruise control, and voice command. And behind it is a 12.3-inch LCD instrument cluster. The SUV gets a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system that is compatible with both Android Auto and Apple Carplay.

And on the top of the well-designed cabin is a panoramic sunroof with one-touch on/off/warped function.

The Tiggo 8 Pro is powered by a 1.6L Turbocharged Gasoline Direct Injection (TGDI) engine that generates a power of 194 hp at 5500 rpm and a torque of 290 Nm at 2000-4000 rpm. The engine is mated to a seven-speed DCT. 

The SUV comes with three driving modes: Normal, Eco, and Sport.
