CHERY TIGGO REVIEW – PENDAPAT PEMILIK CHERY TIGGO – CHEAPEST SUV
The one thing that the China-made Tiggo is not is ugly. This compact SUV has decent external visual appeal, better than a couple of other SUVs that come to mind.
The Tiggo’s looks has benefited from some obvious external design influences, but not to the point of extreme imitation that we have seen in some Chinese autos.
The side and rear views are the best, sporting contemporary SUV styling that should go down quite well with car buyers in Malaysia. On the outside, the Tiggo certainly looks the business.
Open up the rear (the door to the cargo space swings sideways) and you will notice the low loading height, which means there’s little risk in breaking your back here while filling it up with the heavy items.
The cargo space is mid-sized and should do for a family of four, although you can forget about transporting refrigerators and such.
So far so good.
Inside the passenger cabin is where things start getting a little iffy. The Tiggo’s dashboard and instrument cluster are standard stuff, and you get an audio system that you can connect a thumbdrive too.
However, the quality of the plastics used for the interior leaves quite a bit to be desired – it looks and feels cheap.
Same goes for the seat fabrics, although the seats themselves are quite comfortable.
Interior quality is one area I believe Chery will need to look into seriously, as it just does not gel with the Tiggo’s external looks.
The interior also doesn’t gel with the Tiggo’s ride quality.
In fact, the ride was an “assumption buster”. I had expected something near the worst, but what I got was good handling and smooth travel. The “test track” was the all-new DUKE highway, which has a combination of smooth tarmac, bumpy road and sweeping curves on different sections.
The Tiggo rode the surface inconsistencies well, while corners were handled without much fuss, when approached sensibly.
That said, there is little opportunity to take crazy risks, as you can’t actually go wild with the 1.6-litre engine that came with the Tiggo I test drove. Maximum power is 119bhp at 6,150rpm, while maximum torque is 147Nm at 4,300rpm.
The five-speed manual transmission does the job, but second and third gears are wanting, so you can’t be lazy with the gear shifts. Also, shifting into fifth could be smoother.
All in all, the Tiggo is a mixed bag. It’s got good looks, ride and handling, but there is room for improvement in interior quality and transmission.
At RM78,888, on-the-road without insurance, the Tiggo is a decent offering that is at least worth a test drive.
But if more grunt is what you need, check out also the newly launched 129bhp 2.0-litre variant of the Tiggo, priced at RM89,888.
