New Chery Tiggo 5 / Chery Tiggo 5 2021: what engines will the compact Chinese crossover be sold in Russia with?

The famous Chinese manufacturer Chery in the fall of 2021 pleased car enthusiasts who prefer compact crossovers with the new generation Tiggo 5 (photo below). Tiggo has become even more beautiful, more powerful and more resilient, in many respects being on par with his European and American counterparts.

We should not forget about another significant advantage of Chinese auto manufacturing corporations, including Chery - the desire not only to improve their own technologies and adopt others, but also to cooperate with famous manufacturers from around the world. Such an exchange of experience gives, as can be seen from the example of the new Chery Tiggo 5, a truly excellent result, available to the end consumer at a price lower than that of European or Asian analogues.

And finally, another “highlight” of Chinese companies is their willingness to open their own production facilities abroad. This principle was also borrowed from European colleagues, but it is in the Chinese version that it produces the most significant results, incomparable to integration attempts even from such giants as Skoda or Chevrolet.

The new Chery Tiggo 5 2021 (photo below), like its previous versions, will most likely be produced in Egypt, Italy, Uruguay and the Russian Federation (based on the Taganrog TagAZ). However, the bulk of cars for both the foreign and domestic markets will still be produced in China.

Chery promises to rid the 2021 Tiggo 5 (photo below) of the excessive similarity with the most popular product from Toyota, the RAV4, which is reproached by the previous generation of cars. In this case, there is still no need to talk about plagiarism, despite the assurances of individual experts. We cannot exclude the possibility of concluding a corresponding unpublicized agreement between Chery and Toyota. Be that as it may, the new crossover, although its body and window lines will resemble cars of the same class from Japan, will become more independent - both in appearance and in technical components.

One of the most significant drawbacks of the new Chery Tiggo 5 (photo below) is, to put it mildly, a limited range of rims. Regardless of the configuration and customer preferences, Chery will install only cast “rollers” with a radius of 18 inches on the crossover - no more and no less. Consequently, the buyer will have only two options: resign himself and drive 18-inch ones (which, to be honest, is not bad at all for a crossover) or, acting at his own peril and risk, install wheels from another manufacturer. The last step, however, is safe if done carefully and can be a good solution to the problem Cherie created.

The manufacturer will not pamper potential customers with updates to the color scheme or new interior design options for the 2021 Chery Tiggo 5 (photo below). All the same bright, partly acidic tones that are so dear to Chinese automakers. It is possible that for sale in the domestic markets of other countries, Chery’s designers will develop new body shades that are more familiar to Europeans.

As before, there are three options for interior design of the new crossover:

  • in the dark;
  • in pastels;
  • in brown tones.

For each option, the manufacturer provided contrasting stitching for the seat upholstery, but did not go further than this, abandoning the now fashionable colored inserts and touches.

It should be noted that the new 2021 Chery Tiggo 5 (photo below) is still a crossover, not a full-size SUV, and this imposes restrictions on the scope of its use. Tiggo 5 is perfect for moving around the city or in well-groomed countryside, but driving it on real off-road conditions is highly not recommended. Even if the car does not get stuck halfway (and this is possible), unscheduled maintenance will inevitably have to be carried out at the end of the road. The point here is not the shortcomings of Chinese products, but the design features of crossovers, in particular, the relatively low ground clearance and (usually) weaker engine.

In urban areas, the 2021 Chery Tiggo 5 will not only “take root” well, but will also compare favorably with the homogeneous mass of similar cars and crossovers. The owner of this car will not have to regret his choice - provided that he is not a fan of extreme driving. In this case, it is better to pay attention to the more massive “relatives” of Tiggo 5 from Chery or other manufacturers.

Exterior of Chery Tiggo 5 2018 (exterior photo)

The appearance of the new Chery Tiggo 5 (photo below), freed from excessive similarity with Japanese models, has become stricter and more refined, without losing the moderate aggressiveness characteristic of Chery cars. The only thing that spoils the impression of the crossover is the eternal Chinese passion for chrome: even here, despite the obvious attempts of the designers, there is too much of it.

The main feature of the front view of the new Chery Tiggo 5 2018 is the bizarre lines of a single ensemble of head optics, radiator grille and air intake, which will remind the Russian-speaking buyer of the letter Zh.

The huge, complex headlights are not protected in any way by the body lines; This deficiency is compensated by their own stiffening ribs. The fog lights, fortunately, are hidden by the manufacturer in the curves of the Chery Tiggo 5 body, which virtually eliminates the risk of accidental damage.

The manufacturer did not follow fashion and chose a closed air intake design. It may not look as nice as a full open mesh, but it does provide the bumper with enough strength to withstand a moderate frontal crash. And in combination with a reinforced radiator grille, the air intake looks not only exotic, but also quite solid.

The side view of the new Chery Tiggo 5 (photo below) is slightly spoiled by the too rectangular window line, which is visually too high. Everything is fine with the wheel arches: although they do not fit perfectly on the tires (which is impossible with the almost square shape of the arches), they nevertheless correspond to the size of the wheels without straying from the overall design.

The rear view of the crossover (photo below) is remarkable:

  • large “barred” headlights"
  • side lights combined with additional air intake compartments;
  • long spoiler.

The tailgate is wide enough for loading large and/or heavy items. Comfort for the motorist will be provided by an absolutely flat floor and hooks located in the trunk, allowing you to hang bags and packages. Depending on the configuration, the lower part of the car body can be surrounded around the perimeter with durable, wear-resistant black plastic or painted in the color of the body.

On the roof of the new Chery Tiggo 5 2021 of any configuration there are convenient through roof rails. For an additional fee, the crossover owner can order an electric sliding sunroof or even a panoramic roof with lighting.

Photo of the car interior - interior

The cabin of the new Chery Tiggo 5 (photo below) can accommodate five people, including the driver. There are rumors about seven- and eight-seat modifications of the crossover, close to full-size SUVs, but neither the manufacturer nor unofficial sources provide confirmation of the development of modifications with increased capacity.

In the basic configuration, the interior trim materials are:

  • durable, abrasion-resistant fabric;
  • safe plastic;
  • metal.

To give crossovers with improved trim levels a luxurious look, natural or artificial leather, as well as aluminum, are used. The dashboard of the new Chery Tiggo 5 2021 (photo below) is an electronic display with the usual tachometer and speedometer dials and an on-board computer screen located between them. Additional control keys are located on the “chubby” three-spoke steering wheel of an anatomical shape, which provides the driver’s hands with sufficient comfort.

On the central panel of the new crossover (photo below) there is an 8-inch touch screen on-board computer, through which the driver can:

  • control the audio system;
  • check the indications of the navigator;
  • access the phone book;
  • view the list of voice calls;
  • read text messages;
  • connect your smartphone with a multimedia system;
  • control the climate in the cabin of Chery Tiggo 5;
  • receive readings from weather sensors, lighting, tire pressure, temperature and other devices installed in the car.

On the central tunnel of the 2021 Chery Tiggo 5 (photo below) there is a small gear shift lever, a niche for charging mobile devices, cup holders (on the front passenger side) and a comfortable common armrest.

The rear seats of the crossover (photo below), forming a single “sofa,” easily fold in a horizontal plane. This allows you to increase the capacity of the luggage compartment almost three times. Subsequently, the driver can return the seats to their original position by simply pressing a button on the control panel.

The front seats of the new Chery Tiggo 5 (photo below) are equipped with electric drives, heating and ventilation. The last two options are also available for the rear seats, but only in upgraded trim levels or for an additional fee. At present, nothing is known about the possibility of equipping the backs of the front seats with folding tables for rear passengers.

Passengers sitting on the “sofa” can take advantage of the wide common armrest by reclining the central backrest - of course, provided that there are no more than four people in the cabin of the new crossover.

Chery-Tiggo-5: technical specifications

Under the hood of the SUV there is a non-alternative naturally aspirated four-cylinder unit SQR484F. This is an engine with a displacement of 2 liters, developing 138 horsepower. It is worth saying that this engine has a variable valve timing system at the exhaust and intake. Engine torque is 180 Nm at 4.5 thousand rpm. This unit is paired with a five-speed manual transmission. In the luxury configuration, Chery-Tiggo-5 comes with a stepless variator.

In manual mode, the Chinese crossover accelerates to hundreds in 12.8 seconds. Peak speed is 175 kilometers per hour. Fuel consumption in mixed mode is 8.2 liters. The characteristics of the variator are slightly different. So, the car reaches a hundred in 15 seconds. And the maximum speed is limited to 165 kilometers per hour. Fuel consumption is slightly higher than with a manual. In mixed mode, Cherry-Tiggo-5 consumes 9.8 liters of gasoline.

Let's talk about the reliability of the Chery-Tiggo-5 engine. As practice has shown, the engine on the Chinese crossover is really not bad. Its resource is about 300 thousand kilometers. But among the shortcomings, many note the quality of spare parts. Thus, Chery stores often offer non-original spare parts. They do not last long, and it is very difficult to find the original. This applies to everything: spark plugs, coils, sensors and other equipment.

As for maintenance, the engine needs to change the oil and filter every 10 thousand kilometers. Recommended oil viscosity is 5W30. Filling volume – 4.5 liters. Spark plugs have a resource of 40 thousand kilometers. But replacing them is problematic. The engine has a casing that is combined with an air duct. Recommended spark plugs are three-pin spark plugs from German.

When servicing, do not forget about the gas distribution mechanism. So, the engine has a timing belt drive, which should be changed every 60 thousand kilometers. It is worth saying that the original set of replacement parts (this is a new roller and belt) is not cheap - 11 thousand rubles. Although you can find analogues, experts do not recommend installing them - the belt may break.

Also, every 60 thousand you need to replace the service belt. This is the one that goes to all attachments - generator, air conditioner, and so on. the price of a new belt is about a thousand rubles. A new tensioner is not needed. There is a simple spring element here that does not break. Once every 120-130 thousand kilometers, the engine requires replacing the water pump. It is better to do this every second time the timing belt is replaced.

Crossover dimensions

The designers of the new generation Chery Tiggo 5 2021 specially reduced its size so as not to provoke internal competition with Tiggo 7. Now the dimensions of the crossover are:

  • total length - 4.33 m;
  • car width without side mirrors - 1.83 m;
  • body height - 1.64 m;
  • ground clearance - 19 cm.

The standard luggage compartment volume of a crossover is 420 liters. By folding the rear “sofa” this value can be increased to 1240 liters. Large items that do not fit in the trunk can be placed on the roof - either directly on the roof rails, or in a convenient box purchased as an accessory.

The manufacturer has provided for the Tiggo 5 only front-wheel drive and only one type of engine - a 1.5-liter turbocharged unit that runs on gasoline and develops a power of about 148 horsepower.

The following are installed in conjunction with the engine (at the buyer’s choice):

  • five-position manual transmission;
  • seven-position automatic transmission.

Cherie pays special attention to the quality of the car body: during production, exclusively corrosion-resistant alloys with additional processing are used, which ensures the absence of chemical damage over time - of course, with timely inspection.

Engine and Transmission Chery Tiggo 5

New engines of the Acteco family have also been added, in the development of which specialists from the Austrian company AVL participated. Only one of them is presented in Russia - a gasoline, four-cylinder SQR484F, with a displacement of 1971 cubic centimeters and a power of 131 hp. It meets Euro 4 toxicity standards, which can easily be raised to Euro 5, but this will only be done if environmental standards are tightened in Russia. With it, Chery Tiggo 5 is not distinguished by its agility and accelerates to “hundreds” in 15 seconds, long by modern standards, consuming from 10.8 liters. in the city up to 6.6 liters. on the highway with regular 92 gasoline.

The Chery Tiggo 5 has two gearboxes: a five-speed manual or a CVT with seven fixed ranges and a sport mode.

For now, Chery Tiggo 5 is offered only in front-wheel drive. All-wheel drive should appear at domestic dealers in the second half of 2021, at the same time as versions of the Chery Tiggo 5 with a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine producing 150 hp. and a torque of 205 Nm. True, this power unit is designed for single-wheel drive.

Both Chery Tiggo 5 suspensions are independent. There is a MacPherson strut at the front and a spring multi-link at the rear. Ground clearance – 190 mm. The brakes on all wheels are disc.

A dark interior was developed especially for Russia, since in China they prefer light shades. The rear seat back of the Chery Tiggo 5 folds, but after that the floor does not become level; there remains a slight rise.

The trunk door now opens upwards rather than to the side, and therefore the “spare wheel” that was on it is removed under the trunk floor. The steering crown is only adjustable vertically.

Options and prices for Tiggo 5 2018

The price of the new Chery Tiggo 5 2021 basic configuration (fabric trim, no panoramic roof or sunroof, minimum installed systems and sensors) is 90,000 yuan at the end of 2017 (at the current exchange rate - 800 thousand rubles). Advanced versions of the crossover will cost more - up to 125,000 yuan, that is, 1.1 million rubles.

However, before the car appears on the domestic market, not only the exchange rate of the ruble against the yuan may change, but also the financial policy of Chery and dealerships, which will inevitably lead to an adjustment in the cost of the new crossover.

Chery Tiggo 5 warranty

All cars of the new series have also passed crash tests and received the appropriate certificates, allowing them to be sold on international markets. The factory warranty for Chery Tiggo 5 is 5 years or 150 thousand kilometers. But this is largely a marketing ploy, since it only applies to the cylinder block and head, pistons, connecting rods, valves, crankshafts and camshafts, transmission housing and gears, as well as the rear axle gearbox. For everything else - only 3 years or 100 thousand kilometers.

Video test drive and first operation of Chery Tigo 5

As soon as Chery Tiggo 5 appeared on the Russian market, all self-respecting journalists took a test drive and described their enthusiastic feelings about the car in the most interesting colors. This also became the reason for increased interest in the model. Today, there are dozens of car reviews on video, so even without a personal test drive you can get a sufficient amount of information about one or another aspect of this car.

We invite you to get great emotions from watching the test drive of Chery Tiggo 5 and decide to get acquainted with the car in person at the car showroom of an official dealer of the Chinese company.

Technical equipment of the Cherie Tigo 5 crossover

For the new Chery Tiggo, the technical characteristics are so far reduced only to the indicators of one available power plant. The crossover is equipped with a 2-liter gasoline unit, the power rating of which is 136 hp. In the future, crossovers with other power plants may appear.

This power plant can be paired with a 5-speed manual transmission or with a CVT. Some indicators indicated in the table have double meaning, precisely because of the two types of transmissions available. A test drive of the Chery Tiggo 5 will show you in more detail which transmission is more suitable for the crossover.

Like its predecessor, the new product has exclusively front-wheel drive. Although there is information that Chinese designers are working in this direction, so an all-wheel drive version may soon appear.

Options and cost of Chery Tiggo 5

There are 2 configurations for the new Chery Tiggo 5. The first one is called “Standard”. This equipment is only available for cars equipped with a manual transmission. It includes availability:

  • ABS and EBD systems;
  • Rear parking sensors;
  • Fabric trim;
  • Power windows on all doors;
  • 6-range mechanical adjustment of the driver's seat;
  • Adjustable steering column;

So, a crossover in this configuration and with a manual transmission will cost 719,000 rubles, and with a CVT – 769,000 rubles. This price of the second generation Chery Tiggo makes it very attractive for car enthusiasts with a small budget.
