Chery keeps getting better

Bahrain Confidential drives the Chery Tiggo 7 Pro.

I didn’t use to be a fan of the Chery brand. I considered them to be boxy and cheap Chinese cars. But like Japanese cars of years ago, they just keep getting better.

Driving this latest Chery impressed me greatly. It looks and feels like a luxury SUV, and comes with genuine luxury features.

There’s a panoramic sunroof, wireless phone charging, soft leather seats, multicolor ambient cabin lighting, keyless access, push button start, 360-degree camera, power tailgate… I could go on and on. It’s loaded.

The interior dash has a 10.25-inch infotainment display, 7-inch instrument cluster, and 8-inch A/C full touch panel.

It wins both for exterior and interior design. There’s a cool matt and chrome grill and full ‘matrix’ LED headlamps.

The chassis is built on shared Jaguar Land Rover technology, and it comfortably seats 5 adults + there’s lots of storage space.

It’s powered by a 1.5 liter turbo charged engine providing 145 horsepower and 210 NM of Torque, so it’s not what you could call ‘high powered’, but for getting about, it’s fine.

Chery’s really starting to get its act together, and their cars keep getting better. This is the most impressive Chery yet.

Price starts from BD 7,595 (VAT inclusive).
