The seven-seater luxury SUV is powered by a 1.6L TGDI engine that is mated to a seven-speed DCT.
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.

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