Chery Tiggo 3x got a new engine and CVT


Chery has adapted the Tiggo 3x crossover to China’s environmental standards. To comply with the China VI standard (similar to Euro-VI), the car was equipped with a new 1.5-liter aspirated engine, producing 116 hp. and 143 Nm of torque, i.e. 10 hp and 8 Nm more than the old inline “four” of the same volume. The previous four-step “automatic” was replaced by a variator, and the electric power steering was hydraulic.

The standard equipment of the basic Chery Tiggo 3x modification includes 195/65 R15 tires, a tire pressure monitoring system and climate control. For a surcharge, a leather interior, a multimedia system with an 8.0-inch display, which displays an image from the rear view camera, and diode optics with the function of automatically switching the high beam to the low beam are offered. The high-end version of the Chery Tiggo 3x will feature black 17-inch wheels and bright red brake calipers.

In China, sales of the updated model have already started. Basic equipment with a 5-speed manual gearbox costs 49,900 yuan ($ 7135), with a CVT – 59,900 yuan ($ 8560). The top version of the Tiggo 3x was priced at 66,900 yuan ($ 9,560).
