Chery Tiggo 7 Pro Max: Three things you need to know

New SUV will have different styling, upgraded tech and more power than the Tiggo 7 Pro.

The Chery Tiggo 7 Pro Max is set to become the Chinese carmaker’s latest addition to its South African SUV portfolio.

Arriving on showroom floors before the end of the year, the Tiggo 7 Pro Max will slot in above the Tiggo 7 Pro. Like the Tiggo 8 Pro and Tiggo 8 Pro Max, the 7 Pro Max will feature enhancements over its non-Max sibling.

The Chery Tiggo 7 Pro was the 10th best-selling SUV in South Africa in August. The new addition will no doubt further add to the carmaker’s local success.
