The automobile market of Pakistan has already witnessed plenty of new car launches within the last few months. Kia Stonic, Peugeot 2008, Suzuki Swift, Honda Civic and Changan Oshan X7 to name a few.
The next addition to that list is probably going to be Chery Pakistan, as the company has teased the arrival of its Tiggo crossovers. The automaker also seems to have made a dig at recently launched Changan Oshan X7 with the caption “That was a good move but not extraordinary!” followed by a message that reads “All good things come to those who wait” hinting an imminent arrival of Tiggo-8 Pro in the market.
Chery unveiled the Tiggo-4 Pro and Tiggo-8 Pro crossovers in an event held in December 2021. The Tiggo 4 Pro is a 5-seat crossover equipped with Chery’s latest generation 1.5TCl engine, producing 145 hp of power and 210 Nm of torque and is mated to a 9-speed CVT gearbox. The 7-seat Tiggo 8 Pro is the flagship model in the lineup that comes with a 1.6TGDl engine that is capable of producing 195 hp and 290 Nm of torque and is paired with 7-speed DCT gearbox.
