These days, crossovers are becoming major players in a global automotive market that is already saturated with compact and mid-size SUVs. Now it is constantly replenished with huge three-row copies. Experts from the Celestial Empire decided to present their version of the seven-seater "rogue". This is the future flagship Chery Tiggo 9, which will be placed in the range of models a little higher than the well-known Chery Tiggo 8.
Despite the fact that the official premiere of Chery Tiggo 9 is scheduled for May this year, the appearance of the crossover has already been revealed. The cross has a huge radiator grille with vertical slats, along the edges of which LED head optics are installed. All this is packed into an athletic front bumper, with a modest central air intake. The side surface of the body is notable for the “floating” roof, retractable door handles, rounded wheel arches and pronounced relief. The stern is represented by a spoiler on the tailgate, a single taillight module and a diffuser with fake exhaust pipes. The sporty style is accentuated by contrasting black decor and a darkened pattern of alloy wheels, which can be 19 or 20-inch. The crossover is 4820mm long, 1930 wide, 1699mm high and 2820mm axle-to-axle.
The interior of Chery Tiggo 9 is made in the usual minimalist style. Virtually all control is entrusted to the cockpit, which consists of a 12.3-inch instrument panel and a multimedia display of a similar size. Also in the arsenal of the SUV there is a platform for recharging two gadgets at once, climate control, keyless entry, engine start with a button and many electronic assistants.
Chery Tiggo 9 is driven by the only one in the engine range, a 2.0-liter gasoline “turbo engine” with 261 horsepower and 390 Nm, which fall on all wheels through an 8-speed “automatic”. The maximum speed of the SUV is limited at around 205 km / h. In China, Tiggo 9 will be available for 170,000 yuan, which is equivalent to 1,800,000 rubles. It is possible that in the future the model will reach Russia.
