Android Auto Connectivity Now Standard On Chery Tiggo 7 Pro


If there’s one area Chery has all other Chinese carmakers beat, it’s down to smartphone connectivity. Not only do they offer Apple CarPlay as standard on most of their line-up (the only exception is the Tiggo 2 MT), the Tiggo 7 Pro is the first one to get Android Auto connectivity as well.

“We are always on the lookout when it comes to adapting technologies that make driving more enjoyable for everyone,” said newly-appointed UAAGI President Erroll Duenas. “Equipping our bestselling Chery Tiggo 7 Pro with Android Auto is something our customers will surely appreciate,” he added.

Android Auto is a smartphone mirroring service that allows drivers to focus on the road with quality-of-life features such as GPS navigation, music playback, and managing texts and calls, all through the vehicle’s infotainment display.

The goal of Android Auto is to minimize driving distractions by making it easy for drivers to control various infotainment and connectivity features by essentially having their phone’s screen mirrored on an expansive dash-mounted touchscreen display within the driving sightlines of the driver, hence removing the temptation for the driver to look at his or her phone screen for calls, messages, or navigation.

To activate this feature, current Tiggo 7 Pro owners need to set an appointment with their Chery dealership or book an appointment via Chery Auto PH App. The activation will be done by the dealership’s aftersales staff for free.

Android Auto will also be available for other Tiggo models like the Tiggo 2, Tiggo 5x and Tiggo 8, all of which currently use QD Link for Android connectivity. Chery will announce the date of Android Auto availability for those models soon.

“We’re confident that this much-anticipated infotainment upgrade will make the Chery Tiggo 7 Pro even more appealing to its target market,” Duenas added.

The fitment of Android Auto to the Chery Tiggo 7 Pro further consolidates its position as one of the most featured-packed models in its class. Aside from Android Auto, the Tiggo 7 Pro boasts a huge 10.25-inch high-definition touchscreen, automatic tailgate opening, touch-panel AC controls, panoramic sunroof, multi-color ambient lighting, push-button electronic parking brake, N95 cabin filter, electronic gear shift lever, 360-degree camera, tire pressure monitoring system, and many more.

The Tiggo 7 Pro has been Chery’s best-selling model since its launch late last year.
