Elite Motors, Qatar’s official Chery Distributer, officially revealed its all-new, seven-seater SUV—the Chery TIGGO 8 Pro Max—in Qatar. The reveal was followed by a lunch at the Lobito de Mar restaurant, located in the luxurious gardens of the island of Marsa Malaz Kempinski hotel. In quintessential Chery style, the new flagship SUV combines cutting-edge technology, unrivaled comfort and safety, luxurious amenities, and outstanding performance.
An audience of motoring journalists, industry insiders, influencers, and potential customers were given the opportunity to explore the luxurious appeal and innovative excellence of Chery’s flagship SUV in a test drive.
First to debut in a Middle Eastern country, the new TIGGO 8 Pro Max aims to dominate the mid-size, seven-seat SUV segment in Qatar, revolutionizing the market and heating up the local motoring scene. The intelligent SUV is now available in three trim levels: COMFORT, LUXURY, and FLAGSHIP. All are equipped with a potent 2.0-liter TGDI turbocharged engine.
Adopting Chery’s latest design language, the seven-seater SUV’s exterior lines stand out thanks to the galaxy-inspired three-dimensional grille, LED headlights with dual daytime running lamps, LED taillights, 18-inch alloy wheels, and quad- exhaust tips—all contributing to a sportier, more menacing look.
Slotting above the TIGGO 7, the latest TIGGO 8 Pro Max has an overall length of 4722 mm and measures 1860 mm and 1705 mm in width and height, respectively. The flagship SUV also has a generous wheelbase of 2710 mm.
While the exterior styling looks both sporty and bold, the interior of the latest TIGGO model exudes luxury, quality, and modernity. An upscale interior sporting softer padded surfaces, higher quality materials, and advanced technologies greets drivers.
Depending on the trim level, the 2022 TIGGO 8 Pro Max’s interior gets a 24.6-inch twin-screen on the front panel, along with another 8-inch climate control screen to operate the dual-zone climate control and entertainment system. Other key interior highlights include a choice of black or black-brown interior, keyless entry system, Sony sound system with eight speakers, panoramic sunroof, heated and ventilated front seats, 6-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with memory function, central cooling box, mobile wireless charging, and an intelligent voice control assistant system in both English and Arabic, to name but a few.
On this occasion, Engineer Ahmed Al Sebaei, CEO of Elite Motors, said: “We are thrilled to officially reveal today the 2022 Chery TIGGO 8 Pro Max. The latest addition to the TIGGO family offers state-of-the-art technology, ultimate luxury, captivating design, and competitive pricing. We have no doubt that this seven-seater SUV will soon claim the top spot in its segment in Qatar, leaving the competition in the dust.”
Chery, one of the leading global automotive brands, has equipped its new flagship SUV with the N95 air conditioning purifier and Air Quality System (AQS) to filter over 95% of particles and microbes, thus blocking harmful bacteria and producing excellent air quality.
The new TIGGO 8 Pro Max offers plenty of space for seven adults across three rows. With the ability to fold the second and third rows flat, the seven-seater SUV is a practical choice for families looking for a comfortable and stylish way to travel.
As far as safety goes, the 2022 TIGGO 8 Pro Max gains a plethora of driver-assistance systems. These include dual-stage front airbags, front-side airbags, and side curtain airbags, in addition to an anti-lock braking system (ABS), an emergency brake assist system (EBA), hill assist, downhill ascent control, and tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS). A 360-degree camera, adaptive cruise control (ACC), an automatic emergency braking (AEB), a lane-keeping assist (LKA), a traffic sign recognition (TSR), and a rear cross-traffic alert system (RCTA), are but a few of the luxury SUV’s other safety features.
A winner of the China Heart engine competition, the new flagship SUV comes equipped with a powerful 2.0-liter TGDI turbocharged engine that delivers 250 horsepower and 390 Newton meters of torque. The four-cylinder mill, coupled with a seven-speed double-clutch automatic transmission, sends power to the four wheels in the LUXURY and FLAGSHIP variants.
Chery equipped the latest TIGGO family member with a new-generation intelligent AWD system to bring users a better driving and riding experience. The smart AWD system provides six modes for full-scene road conditions, including ECO, Standard, SPORT, and AWD (off-road).
Elite Motors offers a comprehensive 10-year/1,000,000km warranty in Qatar for all Chery Pro and Max series models.
