Chery is preparing an update to its large flagship crossover Tiggo 8. The car’s design has undergone very serious changes – it has become similar to the Tiggo 7 Pro model. The grille turned out to be very stylish with a lot of inserts. DRLs are made in the spirit of the latest Chery models, and the headlights were completely redesigned. In the back, we note a modified bumper and a new design of lights. After restyling, the novelty added in dimensions – now the length is 4,722 mm, the width is 1,860 mm, and the height reaches 1,746 mm. Only the wheelbase remains the same – 2,710 mm.

Changes occurred in the interior – the car received an almost completely redesigned front panel, an infotainment complex with a soaring effect and a new virtual dashboard. Instead of the classic gearshift lever, an electronic joystick is now installed. Some technical details are already known.

The engine range received a new 1.6-liter turbo engine with a capacity of 197 hp. at 290 Nm of torque. He works in tandem with a 7-band robotic gearbox.

Previous 1.5-liter engine with 149 hp also stayed. Depending on the configuration, it is combined with a 6-speed manual transmission or a robotic gearbox with the same number of gears. The official premiere should take place in the near future – the cost of new items is kept secret.
