Review Summary:

The Tiggo is a that goes up against the likes of the Kia Sportage and the Mitsubishi ASX, but while it isn’t as popular a sight as its rivals on the road of the UAE, the Chinese crossover isn’t one to be taken lightly.


* For the money, it's a brilliant package


* Notions people hold on to about Chinese automobiles


With a combination of crisp contours, chrome touches, and soft curves along its bodywork, the 2016 Chery Tiggo is a beautiful offering from the brand. Not much of a surprise, as it’s the stylistic outcome of Porsche and Mercedes-Benz designers’ Klaus Badenhausen, James Brian Hope, and Hakan Saracoglu.

The magic is continued inside and the two-tone cabin is home to piano-black trim, a mix of smooth and perforated leather, and a splash of chrome. The Tiggo also goes on to make its sporting pretensions clear with contrast red stitching on the steering wheel, gear shift lever, seats, and arm rests. But it’s more than that; it’s the refinement of it all that needs to be applauded.

On the technological front, the Tiggo is equipped with a high-definition infotainment screen, Bluetooth connectivity, keyless start, an automatic air conditioning system and a lot more. If you dig deep enough into your pockets, you’ll also get a start-stop system to save you fuel and an 8-way power adjustable driver’s seat.

What’s on offer?

Powered by a 2.0 litre 4-cylinder engine that is capable of producing 139 horsepower and 182 Nm of torque, the Tiggo directs its grunt through a CVT transmission to the front wheels and bears a top speed of 165 km/h.

Summing it…

The 2016 Chery Tiggo challenges preconceived notions of Chinese automobiles and their laid-back approach to quality. Wearing a price tag that is lower than its rivals, while offering significantly more, it’s worth your time if you’re on the lookout for a compact SUV.
