Chery has announced the forthcoming Australian release of the TIGGO 8 Pro Max, scheduled for April 2024. This model is the third to join Chery's Australian lineup, expanding the brand's presence in the market.
The TIGGO 8 Pro Max is a 7-seat SUV, joining the TIGGO 7 Pro in Chery's range of vehicles available in Australia. Lucas Harris, Managing Director at Chery Australia, confirmed the vehicle's introduction, positioning it as a new option for Australian consumers looking for family SUVs.
Designed with a focus on modern aesthetics, the TIGGO 8 Pro Max features design elements such as LED headlights and a spacious interior. It aims to balance style with practicality, reflecting Chery's approach to vehicle design.
The SUV will be available in three variants: Urban (FWD), Elite (FWD), and Ultimate (AWD), all powered by a 2.0L turbo petrol engine delivering 180kW and 375Nm. The engine is coupled with a transmission system designed for 'smooth performance on Australian roads', though details are yet to be fully released.
Since its entry into the Australian market in 2023, Chery has established a network of 60 dealerships and sold over 6000 vehicles. The launch of the TIGGO 8 Pro Max will be accompanied by a 7-year unlimited km warranty, 7-year capped price servicing, and up to 7 years of roadside assistance, as stated by the company.
