With the official brand launch happening tonight, UAAGI ran a series of full-page ads in leading newspapers outlining their entire line-up and pricing.

The line-up starts with the Tiggo 2, their sub-compact crossover offering. The Tiggo 2 comes with a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine making 106 horsepower and 135 Nm of torque. This engine, named one of China’s Top Best Engines is mated to either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic. Pricing starts at jut P 695,000.

The Tiggo 5X also comes with a choice between a 5-speed manual or a CVT transmission all for a starting price of just P 818,000.


Those looking for something bigger may be enticed by the Tiggo 7. Despite its name, the Tiggo 7 is the brand’s flagship 5-seater SUV powered by a turbocharged 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine. In this guise, it makes 145 horsepower and 210 Nm of torque mated to a dry-type 6-speed dual clutch automatic. The price for this compact SUV is P 1,195,000.

    1. The company, UAAGI, has been the distributor of FOTON since 2006. That's waaaaaaay past 10yrs. ☺
      They've successfully brought FOTON into the Top 10 auto brands in the Philippines since 2018.
      You're welcome. ������

  5. Chery's vehicle line up and pricing are very enticing and their service offers are amazing. The million peso question is, will there be alot of filipinos wanting this as their first car? Just my opinion.🤔

  7. I know UAAGI and Chery wanted to put back trust onto Chery but 1M km mileage? Which car today can display that in its odometer? The meter can't even display that. Most cars would have vehicular problems already along 100KM.
