In terms of looks, the Tiggo 8 Pro and Tiggo 8 Pro PHEV carry the familiar “Pro” front fascia seen on other “Pro” models in the Chery line-up. Their faces feature a gloss-black honeycomb-like grille flanked by aggressive-looking swept-back headlamps.

Under the hood of the Tiggo 8 Pro is a 1.6-liter turbocharged gasoline engine that generates 183PS and 275Nm of torque and is paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The Tiggo 8 Pro PHEV meanwhile, has a 155PS, 230Nm 1.5-liter gasoline engine with two electric motors (34PS with 80Nm and 54PS with 70Nm) and a 19.27kWh battery. The vehicle is touted to be able to cover 95 kilometers with purely electric power, and charging time for the battery takes three hours.
