PIMS: Chery Auto PH Flexes Performance Muscle With 254-Horsepower Tiggo 8 PRO 2.0T (w/ Specs)

Chery Auto Philippines has steadily re-written the local motoring landscape with the Tiggo 8 Pro. Starting the movement for innovation that brings advanced technologies to more Filipinos, the brand, under the stewardship of United Asia Automotive Group, Inc. (UAAGI) is ready to flex their performance muscle with the launch of the Tiggo 8 PRO 2.0T.

“We are thrilled to showcase our new flagship with the all-new Chery Tiggo 8 PRO at 2022 PIMS. Our participation this year at the prestigious PIMS is yet another milestone for the brand as we celebrate the entry of Chery into the premiere industry organization, the Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines Inc. (CAMPI). With the aggressive local introduction of our crossovers, we are planting the seeds of an innovation movement that disrupts long-established customer beliefs on who can only enjoy the latest automotive technology," says CHERY Auto Philippines/UAAGI President Erroll Dueñas.

Sandwiching the equally luxurious Tiggo 8 Pro 1.6 T-GDI and the Tiggo 8 Pro Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV), the Tiggo 8 Pro 2.0T represents a more performance-oriented twist to their mid-sized 7-seater SUV. Utilizing Chery’s second-generation i-HEC combustion technologies, it has improved thermal management and an ultra-high (350-bar) direct injection system. All in all, the 2.0-liter 4-cylinder motor generates 254 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and a stout 390 Nm of torque from 2,000 to 4,000 rpm.

Helping keep all that power to the ground, the Tiggo 8 Pro 2.0T comes with a wet-type 7-speed dual clutch automatic, independent suspension on all four corners, and standard all-wheel drive. Its T1X platform is also built from advanced high-strength steel enabling it to have excellent rigidity for better handling and ride comfort.

Like the Tiggo 8 Pro 1.6 T-GDI, the Tiggo 8 Pro 2.0T is well-equipped for its P 1.945-million P 2.1-million asking price. It comes with a black-colored interior with leather seats, power adjustable front seats (6-way for the driver, 4-way for the front passenger), panoramic sunroof, and a 12.3-inch infotainment system with an 8-speaker Sony sound system.

In terms of safety, it foregoes the advanced driver assist system (ADAS) found in the 1.6 T-GDI, but it keeps its 6 SRS airbags, ABS with EBD, electronic stability control, hill descent control, tire pressure monitoring system, front & rear proximity sensors, and more.

“We have started shifting gears by making your daily drive more memorable through the power of a luxurious design and advanced driver assistance technologies in the Tiggo 8 Pro 1.6 T-GDI. Your journeys have become more sustainable through the power of electrification in the Tiggo 8 PRO PHEV. And now, we would like to introduce a new breed of power that will not only excite your senses but will increase your heart’s ‘beats per minute,’ says Chery Auto Philippines/UAAGI Vice President for Sales and Marketing Luigi Ignacio.

  1. Vs the mazda cx8??? I think most pnoys are not yet ready for a 2M chinese cars. Uaagi should instead bring here the tiggo 4 pro and tiggo 5 pro

    1. CX8 is priced at 2.330,000 you dummy!Ang layo nang presyo nang dalawa!
      Tiggo 8 Pro 2.0 Liter is just an alternative to the 1.6 liter one and PHEV variant.
      It'll surely sell well just like the 1.6 Liter Turbo variant.

    2. Oh.. kotchi99 maybe what you mean of malayo is the QUALITY of cx8 vs tiggo8🤣🤣🤣 no one in its rightmind will buy 2m tiggo8, they will add a little more for a sure quality and more premium cx8 with 5years free pms But i knew YOU will choose tiggo8 it🤭🤭🤭
