The new Chery Tiggo 7 Pro Max takes the already popular Tiggo 7 Pro range to a new level, offering drivers world class technology, all-wheel drive performance and an updated stand-out design.

The Tiggo 7 Pro Max features unique styling that includes a new grille boasting an intensely accentuated diamond pattern. Crafted from a dark gloss black polycarbonate weave, it’s embellished with chrome diamond-shaped highlights that result in a distinctive and captivating frontal design. New Angel Wings LED headlamps are an artful triumph of three-dimensional design.

The lower sill and side intakes have been transformed in order to offer a fierce road presence. Two-wheel drive models are fitted with upgraded 18-inch diamond cut alloys, with an elegant deep-dish pattern while all-wheel drive models are fitted with a larger 19-inch rim.

The new Tiggo 7 Pro Max features a unique LED light-up sequence. As the sensors detect the key in hand, the LED lights, both front and rear, perform a welcoming symphony, offering a sense of celebration every time the driver approaches the vehicle. The powered tailgate also features an inspiring vehicle-wide LED light strip.

Digital interior

Inside the Tiggo 7 Pro Max aims to redefine the in-car experience. The cabin is illuminated in ambient light courtesy of a stepless LED light ring, which stretches from end-to-end, offering a spectrum of 64 captivating hues that create an immersive ambience. Taking pride of place on the dashboard is a 24,6-inch curved hyperboloid immersive screen that offers an ultra-high-definition display. The screen is a hub from which all systems including the climate control and wide variety of entertainment options including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are controlled. The premium eight-speaker Sony sound system ensures an immersive auditory experience.

The central control centre has been redesigned and now features a short-travel, light-touch gear lever and a selection knob for swift changes of driving modes.

One-piece perforated leather sport front seats are equipped with electric adjustment. In the new Tiggo 7 Pro Max in Executive trim, the automatic air quality control system offers negative ion air purification, ensuring the cleanest in-cabin air quality.

Creature comforts include an automated rear boot, dual-zone automatic climate control, “Hello Chery” Intelligent Voice Commands for effortless control, a vast 1,1 square meter panoramic sunroof with an additional dark sunshade and a state-of-the-art camera array that employs AI technology to provide a comprehensive view around the vehicle when needed. The wireless phone charging capability has been upgraded from 15W to 50W, ensuring rapid charging of devices.
