Video: 2023 Chery Tiggo 8 Pro: 7-seater SUV from RM160k – 5 Things

The 2023 Chery Tiggo 8 Pro has just made its launch on July 6, 2023, alongside its younger sibling – the Chery Omoda 5. Available in a sole variant, the Tiggo 8 Pro is retailed at RM159,800 (OTR, without insurance).

The Malaysian-spec Chery Tiggo 8 Pro is based on the Tiggo 8 Pro Max in China and is just slightly smaller in dimensions compared to its closest rival – the Proton X90. On the outside, the 2023 Chery Tiggo 8 Pro is fitted with a “galaxy”-inspired front grille that also has prism-inspired inserts on the mesh.

Round the back, Chery has also given the Tiggo 8 Pro tail lights that extend horizontally across the width of the car, together with a T-shaped third brake light that is integrated into the roof-mounted spoiler. Other exterior features that the Tiggo 8 Pro gets include a set of 19-inch alloys, quad tailpipes, as well as roof rails.

There is also an easter egg trick under the Tiggo 8 Pro’s sleeve. The Chery logo at the front will illuminate together with the headlights and tail lights to form the welcome light upon unlocking the car.
