The smallest Chery Tiggo was able to surprise us. And, basically, nice!
On the market for another "Chinese" — these words could start a story about Chery Tiggo 2, the new compact crossover. But the nature of the smallest of the family Tdda was the envy of adults, which does not expect from a car with such a pedigree.
Yes, we do consider it nice to finally "Chinese" does not copy frankly some of the European cars and doesn't look preposterous on wheels. However, the team, led by former General Motors designer James Hope still cheated — the basis is based on the hatchback Chery Very. He added plastic kit increased ground clearance up to 186 mm, set of 16-inch wheels, and at the same time, "sewn" new front end.
Turned out okay, but most attention Tiggo 2 draws in the orange color — so that the car do not hesitate to approach and ask the people passing by. Honestly, at first I thought it camouflaged the staff of Chery, but after a couple of questions it became clear they really interesting! Although the main question asked at the end: "how much?".
It is expensive
The price list does not promise anything good. Discounts for the disposal, purchase in credit and other Chery Tiggo 2 you can buy at least... 759 900 virtually any! And that should force the buyer to choose Chery is much cheaper "Chinese" Lifan X50 (599 900 virtually any) or Dongfeng H30 Cross (649 000)? Affordable and Lada XRAY (from 599 900 virtually any) with Renault Sandero Stepway (from 639 900 virtually any). Even the basic Renault Duster will cost 120 thousand cheaper!
However, in standard Comfort include ABS, 2 airbag, air conditioning, heated seats, Central locking with remote control and 16-inch wheels, automatic Duster expunged from the list of competitors — with such equipment it is noticeably more expensive. However, Renault Sandero Stepway and the new Lada XRAY will still be cheaper and better equipped. But Chery have another bonus in addition to a 5-year warranty (up to 150 thousand km).
He's got a cool interior
Tiggo 2 outright beats the competitors, is to sit inside — material is much better than Renault and Lada, seat and panels decorated with contrasting orange accents, well beaten, and a large "blotch" under the CFRP. In picking Luxury (819 900 virtually any) appears multimedia system with 8-inch touchscreen technology Cloudrive (integration with smartphones on the Android platform) and rear view camera. And most of all shocking door cards — massive rubberized handles and quality fittings. Hey, they're not from Audi?
Carefully made niche at the bottom of the centre console there is a USB port and power socket 12 V and heated seats has 2 degrees of intensity. It is a pity that ergonomic punctures enough. At the helm there is no adjustment on the flight, driver's seat mounted so high that he almost hit your head on the ceiling. The calculation for women? And put it is impossible. Between the seats there is an armrest, instead, only a deep pocket. For any money not to order the climate control, light sensors/rain or heated windshield.
There is here a stabilization system, and ERA GLONASS (the validity period of the certificate on the machine on the basis of the Chery A13 is still valid), but there are monitoring tire pressure. And the advanced multimedia system upset a dim screen and tricky interface. Although the most uncomfortable thing in the cabin Tiggo 2 is "design" dashboard-style of the latest models from Peugeot and Aston Martin. Arrow of a tachometer and speedometer go to meet each other, and the scales are stretched around the edges. Well, the speed can be displayed on the Central screen. But not to worry — a fine camera for Tiggo steering wheel 2 is extremely difficult.
