  1. Looks much better than the CS75 Plus it replaced
    Good alternative to the Tiggo 8 Pro and Okavango

  2. Tiggo 8 pro 1.6L the best among its china peers. Luxurious inside and has better engine vs 1.5L of its chinese competitors.

  3. 900k sa china. Pag dating dito almost 1.6m. Premium distributor premium price din

  4. Don't be fooled. It will be like geely all over again. No parts and service is bad. Chinese cars have long way to go here

  5. If you want to buy chinese Cars better stick to any SUV below 1.3M . Resale value is Very Bad .hard to sell yet bad after sales service. No option to buy replacement parts. Dealer the only way for maintenance checkup .

  6. I believe the problem with China cars is they make their cars with small displacements which make their cars less reliable in the long run for it can cause more wear and tear.
