Chery Tiggo 3 2017 – has been updated compact crossover
One of the leading brands of Chinese automobile industry – Chery – continues to show activity in the crossover segment. After recently officially presented Chery Tiggo 3X, the updated SUV Chery Tiggo 3 comes to the Chinese market.
Pre-restyling Chery Tiggo 3 looked much the same as the updated one looks. Only a false radiator grille stands out not like it used to, because the framing strip of chrome-plated metal disappeared.
Front bumper is somewhat freshened, and that’s it.
Design has never been a strong point of Chinese automakers. Chery Tiggo 3 in this regard, also does not claim the laurels, but it looks quite soundly, especially given the relatively low cost.
Developers carrying out the restyling of Chery Tiggo 3 have done everything so that drivers and passengers sat in the cabin and gasped in surprise. Given the budgetary cost of the car, it is quite surprising to see the excellent finishing materials, and high quality finishes. Quintuple cabin got everything that has a good crossover from a good producer.
The front panel and center console are modern, aesthetically pleasing and practical components. As expected, there is a large screen of on-board computer, which displays all the information needed for driving. Nozzles of air ducts are hidden in a stylish box, air conditioning rotary knobs are located directly below the display. Door cards are decorated with the maximum convenience for the driver and passengers, even armrests are quite comfortable, which is rare for Chinese cars.
Infotainment system Cloudrive 2.0 is surmounted with a touch seven-inch screen. It perfectly cooperates with the modern mobile communications, with cloud storage, which automatically implies the possibility of access to the Internet.
All devices in the cabin of the crossover are readily available, easy to use, and arranged such that not to interfere with either the driver or passengers.
Fully packed five-seat crossover will give its owner the opportunity to enjoy the excellent climate system, modern infotainment system, cruise control, seats trimmed in leather and fabric, motorized windows, heated door mirrors, LED filling of the front running lights and other benefits of modern automotive civilization.
Chery Tiggo 3 after restyling in terms of composition and capacity of the power plant has not changed practically at all. There remains a gasoline engine with a cylinder capacity of 1.6 liters, issuing a power of 126 hp and a torque of 160 Nm. Paired with the engine running five-way “mechanics” or optionally 7 CVT.
Features of the power plant do not allow us to speak about the prevalence of off-road component of the updated crossover. It remains to count on possible changes in the near future.
