The Chery Tiggo (Chinese: 奇瑞瑞虎; pinyin: Qíruì Ruìhǔ)[5] is a compact crossover produced by the Chinese manufacturer Chery Automobile since 2005. It was facelifted in September 2010,[6] and a new generation was launched in November 2013.[7]

Overview[edit]

There are many styling cues which resemble other compact crossovers, mainly the Toyota RAV4 and the Honda CR-V.[8]

Outside of China, the Tiggo has also been assembled in Uruguay from as of late 2007,[9] as a result of a partnership between Chery and Argentine company SOCMA.[10] The goal was to export the car to Argentina and Brazil – 30% to 50% share of local components are needed to receive zero-tariff status inside the Mercosur.[11] As of May 2015, the plant was permanently closed.[12]

The Tiggo has also been assembled from knocked down kits in Italy by the DR Motor Company as the dr5.

The 2.0 L version is also being assembled in Egypt as of late 2008 under the Speranza brandname. It is the latest addition to the assembly line of Egyptian assembled Chery cars (Eastar, A5 and A1) by Aboul-Fotouh (a former BMW dealer in Egypt).

In September 2010, Chery released the new 2011 Tiggo in China, essentially a facelift, built on the same platform. To the previous three engine options (1.6/1.8/2.0/L) is added the "1.6 s," a 1.6-liter with mechanical supercharger putting out 110 kW (150 PS; 148 hp) at 5500 rpm and 205 N·m (151 lb·ft) between 3,500 and 4,500 rpm.[6]

A 2011 Tiggo was put to an offset crash-test by the ANCAP in October 2011 and scored a poor result of only two stars out of five. The rating comes as the side impact was not conducted, after Chery issued a recall to rectify some issues with side impact protection, and it was awarded the maximum score that it could achieve in the side impact test.[13][14] However, even the maximum score in the side impact test would not have been enough to improve the car's safety rating beyond two stars.[15]
