While still remaining focused on consumers looking for the great value in their new cars, Chery Auto Philippines is also setting its sights on the growing number of buyers who still want value for money but desire enhanced practicality, a greener and more sustainable powertrain, more premium features and a more luxurious design.

“We are excited to introduce the new Chery Tiggo 5X Pro Hybrid to Filipino new car buyers. With its upmarket styling, efficient hybrid drivetrain, and premium features, we expect it to surprise and delight Filipinos who want to get more from their subcompact crossover,” says Chery Auto Philippines Managing Director Froilan Dytianquin. 

“But it is not only about a new car. We are also announcing our new corporate tagline: “There’s More to Our Cars.” This statement speaks beyond a tagline; it represents a profound brand commitment. It signifies our promise to deliver not just innovative and world-class vehicles but an unparalleled ownership experience. From the joy of owning to the fun of driving, all complemented by our unbeatable warranty program—the Chery Premium Preserv and exceptional aftersales support. “There’s More to Our Cars” encapsulates our dedication to providing a holistic and elevated driving experience, surpassing expectations and catering to the diverse needs and desires of our esteemed customers.

The Tiggo 5X Pro finally completes the Tiggo line’s transition to ‘Pro’ status, following the tire tracks of its successful siblings, the Tiggo 2 Pro, Tiggo 7 Pro, and Tiggo 8 Pro. 

The new Tiggo 5X Pro presents a head-turning facade on the road with its big, bold Diamond Galaxy grille, distinctive LED headlights with follow-me-home function, and dual-row LED daytime running lights housed within a sporty black-and-chrome housing.

More upmarket aesthetic and functional touches include power-folding side mirrors with turn signals, chrome trim on the windows, a rear spoiler with high-mounted brake light, a new rear bumper with sporty chrome and silver trim on the diffuser, and integrated load-bearing roof rails.

Large 18-inch two-tone alloy wheels with meaty 215/55R18 tires endow the Tiggo 5X Pro Hybrid with sporty good looks and responsive handling.

The new Tiggo 5X Pro Hybrid’s spacious and well-crafted cabin reflects the same upscale style and premium build quality and features expressed by the exterior. There are sustainably produced faux leather seats with bucket-type front seats, sporty red accents, multi-color ambient lighting, 6-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, 4-way adjustable front passenger seat, intelligent remote key, tilt-and-telescope steering wheel, push-button engine start, auto start/stop, multi-function steering wheel buttons, power sunroof, remote tailgate unlock, one-touch power windows with anti-pinch protection, and an N95 cabin filter. 

It has the biggest-in-class 10.25-inch touchscreen 6-speaker infotainment system that boasts Bluetooth, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and USB connectivity. It also has a fully digital 7-inch instrument cluster, a 360-degree around-view monitor, reversing camera with dynamic guidelines, electronic cruise control with a speed limiter, an electronic parking brake, and wireless mobile phone charging. 

The new Tiggo 5X Pro Hybrid is powered by a new-generation 1.5-liter turbocharged DOHC VVT 16-valve Euro 6-compliant 4-cylinder gasoline engine coupled with an all-new continuously variable transmission (CVT). The engine works with a 48-volt belt-starter generator (BSG) mild-hybrid motor to develop 154 hp and 230 Newton meters of torque.  

The mild hybrid technology allows the Tiggo 5X Pro Hybrid to have various EV functions like Auto Start & Stop, which shuts off the engine when engine power is not needed such as during stoplights to save fuel, Energy Recovery, wherein the mild hybrid system regenerates energy during coasting or braking and the energy generated will then be converted and stored as electrical energy in the batteries. Other mild hybrid benefits include fuel efficiency and lower emissions (the 48V technology boosts the engine giving the engine-less hard work in acceleration). 

Suspension is via McPherson struts in front and an independent multi-link setup in the rear. Strong braking power is provided by four-wheel disc brakes (ventilated at the front) with ABS and Brake Assist. 

The Tiggo 5X Pro Hybrid’s suite of safety and security features include 6 SRS airbags, Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Hill Assist Control, Hill Descent Control, traction control, tire pressure monitoring system, ISOFIX seat anchor, an electronic anti-theft system with engine immobilizer, and 3-point dual-pretensioner seatbelts for all five occupants.

With their generous exterior dimensions, they are among the largest and most spacious vehicles in their class and with their hybrid powertrains, they are among the most, if not the most, fuel-efficient of all. There is truly more to our cars,” Dytianquin concluded.
