Royal Comfort

With its super long design, large and flexible trunk capacity, luxury seating, automatic climate control systems and a whole host of other creature comforts, the Chery Tiggo 8 Pro is fitted out to make every passenger feel like royalty.


7 Luxury Seats

The Chery Tiggo 8 Pro’s seat cushions are designed with lumber-supporting wrap-around thickened side wings to snugly support occupants around the hips and waist for greater comfort. The seats also include aviation-style seat headrests for a touch of jet-set class. The driver’s seat also has a six-way electric position adjuster.


Spacious Cabin

The luxuriously roomy cabin and cockpit feature symmetrical, horizontally integrated touch screens and controls within easy reach, and are finished in a luxurious black and brown with laser-brushed trim.* The cabin design not only provides height for greater comfort, but ensures  greater peripheral vision for a better driving experience. *Flagship models only


Dual Zone Automatic Air Conditioning System

Intelligent double zone air conditioning in the front and independent air conditioning in the rear create a clean, Nordic level of air quality for all passengers.


Pharmaceutical-Grade Air Purification

Controlled via a digitalised control panel, the Tiggo 8 Pro delivers the ultimate in air quality. The N95-level air-conditioning purifier filters out more than 95% of all particles and pathogens. The AQS + PM2.5 air quality control system detects any irritating gas, and then automatically switches between inside and outside circulation to block harmful bacteria. The cabin’s remote initiative cabin self-cleaning system (RICSCS) automatically purifies and sterilises the air, removing bacteria, dust and odour.


Multi Colour Ambient Light

Why settle for what the day or night brings when you can choose your own light? The Tiggo 8 Pro comes with seven colour themes for the interior ambient lighting. The lighting can even vary with the rhythm of your favourite music!


Multi-Function Leather Steering Wheel

With four adjustment settings and encased in soft-touch synthetic leather, the Tiggo 8 Pro’s steering wheel perfectly balances form and function. The A/V system and entertainment, colour screens, Bluetooth phone, and cruise control are all literally at your fingertips.


Flexible and Spacious Boot

The flexible boot space is designed for your changing needs. With the back seats down, the boot space is a whopping 2101L. Even with the rear seats raised for the maximum 7-person occupancy, the boot space is still a very generous 1179L.


Exterior Features

Dynamic Design

Designed by some of the world’s leading car stylists, the Tiggo 8 Pro personifies grace, power and superb functionality. This applies all the way from its tiger-like front face and starry-night grille, to the penetrating beltline that runs all the way to the back of the car.


Panoramic Sunroof

With a two-panelled 1.96m2 skylight, the Chery Tiggo 8 Pro gives passengers a truly panoramic view of the sky, whether they’re watching clouds, stars or skyscrapers. With one-touch ON/OFF/Warped functionality, the glass’s anti-pinch design protects occupants from any accidental injury. The sunshade provides a 100% shading effect, keeping any unwanted heat from the sun outside the cabin.


Sleek and Strong Roof Rack

Stylishly unobtrusive yet still super-functional, the Tiggo 8 Pro’s aluminium alloy one-piece load-bearing roof rack supports a load of up to 80kg, just in case the spacious interior storage isn’t enough. In the Tiggo 8 Pro, you’ll never have to go without.


Top-End 18-inch Alloy Rims

Made from super quality aluminium, the Tiggo 8 Pro’s alloy rims are comparable to those found on a sports car and add an athletic dimension to the exterior design.


LED Headlamps with integrated Dynamic Turning Signal

With a lighting efficiency of around 2.7 times that of a traditional halogen lamp and integrated turning signal lights with a dynamic flow direction for more visible indication, the Tiggo 8 Pro’s lighting system radically improves road illumination and driving safety.


Memory-Enabled Mirrors *

With automatic flat-folding and recovery memory of their pre-set angle, the Tiggo 8 Pro’s exterior mirrors are just another extra feature that make driving the Tiggo 8 Pro a first-class experience. *Flagship models only


Power Features

High Performance Engine

Both Tiggo 8 Pro models are equipped with a 1.6T GDI Engine + 7DCT transmission with a maximum power of 145kW and 290Nm of torque.


T1X Comfort Chassis

The Tiggo 8 Pro is built on the T1X platform. This chassis has been deliberately crafted to enable better headroom for front and rear seats, better all-round visibility, as well as higher ground clearance. The high approach and departure angles also ensure better off-road performance if and when required.


Dual Mode EPS

The Tiggo 8 Pro’s EPS (Electronic Power Steering) enables light steering at a low speed and stable steering at a high speed. This ensures increased fuel efficiency compared to hydraulic power systems.


Automatic Start/Stop

The Tiggo 8 Pro’s engine starts and stops automatically to reduce emissions and reduce fuel consumption.


Elite NVH Levels

The Chery Tiggo 8 Pro has an interior idling noise level of just 35dB. That’s as quiet as a library! Noise-reducing material is used throughout the interior, exterior, body, and chassis. An externally controlled variable displacement compressor dampens noise from the front compressor, cooling fan and rear fuel pump, while a stepless fan effectively reduces noise in high-speed conditions.



Towing Capacity

The Tiggo 8 Pro has a towing capacity of 750kg unbraked, and 1500kg braked.


Technology Features

Intelligent Technology

The Tiggo 8 Pro is packed full of the latest technology. This includes multiple high-end screens, SONY sound system, wireless charging for your devices, automatic window washer, refrigerated armrest storage for a cold drink on a hot day, and a whole lot more.


Intelligent Driving Modes

The Tiggo 8 Pro shifts between different driving modes according to the road conditions you face, saving you fuel and enhancing your drive. It also memorises the driving mode you last used, so you’ll already be in Eco or Sport mode when you get back into your car.



ACC Adaptive Cruise Control

The Tiggo 8 Pro’s adaptive cruise control monitors road conditions, vehicle spacing, automatic speed, regulation, and Start/Stop.



BSD Blind Spot Detection

The Tiggo 8 Pro uses BSD (Blind Spot Detection) and LCA (Lane Change Assist) with microwave radar to detect passing cars. This prevents accidents due to cars overtaking and moving through any potential blind spots of the rear-view mirror.



Automatic Sensing Tail Door

The Tiggo 8 Pro’s electric tailgate opens automatically when the remote control is brought within one metre of the tailgate. This saves you having to search for your key when you want to load up the boot.



HD Display Screen & LCD Instrument Panel

The Tiggo 8 Pro’s HD floating centre LCD screen has a resolution of up to 1920×720. It links to both your phone and the instrument panel, seamlessly displaying multimedia, communication, early warning, driving information, warning message, settings and other functions. This tri-screen linkage of mobile phone, LCD instrument panel and HD touch screen, makes for a smoother, more user-friendly, and safer driving experience.

With its aesthetic and user-friendly interface, the Tiggo 8 Pro’s screens come loaded with three themes that are freely switchable in the cabin system, and customisable with wallpapers. The Distinction models come with a 10.25” central floating display and 12.3” digital instruments display. The  Flagship executive models feature a 10.25” central floating display, a 12.3” digital instruments display, plus a centre console-mounted 8” ventilation control display.


Keyless Entry & One Button Start

The Tiggo 8 Pro’s key comes with a PEPS (Passive Entry Passive Start) and engine Start/Stop system, providing the latest technological convenience. It allows automatic unlocking at 1.2 metres from the vehicle and auto-lock up at 1.5 metres. With a simple long press of the lock key, you can close all the windows simultaneously.


Electronic Gearshift

The Chery Tiggo 8 Pro’s high-tech electronic gearshift is unaffected by terrain when parking, making parking precise and effortless.


Mirror Link

Tiggo 8 Pro is IOS and Android enabled, allowing for voice-activated phone calls, voice-activated music, and voice activated navigation commands.


Safety Features

High-Strength Body

The Tiggo 8 Pro is constructed with multiple blocks of Benteler AG ultra-high strength thermo-form steel with a yield strength ≥1500Mpa per square inch!



6 Guard-Ring Airbags

The Tiggo 8 Pro is equipped with the leading guard-ring type airbags, providing comprehensive protection in the event of a collision. These include front driver and passenger airbags, front side airbags, and overlong side curtain airbags that shield the interior of the cabin.


HD Reversing Camera

With HD quality, wide-angle images, the Tiggo 8 Pro’s reverse image system displays dynamic auxiliary lines, red, yellow, and green alerts. Coupled with an ultrasonic radar detector, it can accurately gauge distance, making parking easy and stress-free.


360-degree AVM (Around View Monitor)

With its HD quality, wide-angle image, the AVM makes it easier to observe all the obstacles around the vehicle. This makes it simple for even novice drivers to park, and reduces accidental bumps during parking or low-speed driving. This panoramic view function is automatically activated when the reverse position is engaged and at a speed of less than 20km/h when driving. The setting interface of the central control screen can be switched on and off, and it goes off automatically when the vehicle’s speed exceeds 20km/h.


EPB + Autohold

The Tiggo 8 Pro’s parking brake is activated by an electronic lever tab to make sure that the braking force can be applied to each wheel without differentiation. Autohold maintains braking after the brake pedal is depressed. Autohold is deactivated by tapping the accelerator.


TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System)

Each tyre on the Tiggo 8 Pro carries a pressure sensor which communicates tyre pressure and temperature via wireless radio frequency signals. When the tyre pressure is less than 1.8bar and the vehicle is driving at a speed of over 30km/h, the system issues a low-pressure alarm after the vehicle has driven for some time. When the tyre temperature is greater than 85°C and the vehicle is driving at speeds of over 30km/h, the system issues a high temperature alarm.
