Tiggo 7 Pro Hybrid joins Chery’s growing electrified offerings in PH
Chery Auto Philippines continues to expand its offering of electrified vehicles in the country. Aside from the Tiggo 5X Pro Hybrid, the automaker also officially launched the 2024 Tiggo 7 Pro Hybrid.
Initially previewed to the public last June, the electrified compact crossover gets an electrified turbocharged engine under the hood, as well as a long list of new and upgraded in-car features and amenities.
Starting with the most obvious upgrade, the crossover is powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that's assisted by a 48V belt-starter generator (BSG). Like the Tiggo 5X Pro Hybrid, the electrified engine produces 156 PS with 230 Nm of torque and is connected to a CVT driving the front wheels. The automaker claims the 48V BSG not only boosts power but also reduces fuel consumption by 13% compared to the non-hybrid version.
Style-wise, the Tiggo 7 Pro Hybrid looks almost similar to the regular version of the crossover. It still gets the Diamond Galaxy Grille, the eye-catching LED headlights, the double-row LED foglights, the sleek LED taillights, and the massive panoramic sunroof. However, it does get some subtle differences that make it stand out from the non-hybrid model; the ‘Hybrid’ badge on the tailgate, and the new 18-inch alloy wheels unique only to the electrified crossover.
In terms of dimensions, the Tiggo 7 Pro Hybrid measures 4500mm long, 1842mm wide, 1746mm tall, and has a 2670mm wheelbase. Side-by-side with the non-hybrid version and they actually have the same measurements.
Open the doors and the cabin greets passengers with leather seats, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, a wireless charging pad, a host of USB charging ports for the front and rear, and multi-color LED ambient lighting. There’s also a 10.25-inch touchscreen display and a 12.3-inch fully-digital instrument cluster that can show a multi-info screen, a tachometer, and a speedometer.
The touchscreen system supports Bluetooth connectivity as well as both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. In addition, the screen serves as the 360-degree around-view monitor to help drivers navigate around tight spaces or during parking. Other available features inside the Tiggo 7 Hybrid include rear aircon vents, smart keyless entry, a power tailgate, and a remote engine start.
A long list of safety features are available in the 2024 Tiggo 7 Pro Hybrid which includes; anti-lock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, brake assist, cruise control with speed limiter, hill-start assist, hill-descent control, traction control, electronic stability, a tire pressure monitoring system, rear parking sensors, and 6 airbags.
The 2024 Chery Tiggo 7 Pro Hybrid is available for PHP 1.350 million and comes in the following colors - Black, Gray, Red, Silver, and White.
