Chery’s Tiggo 8 Pro Max is its mid-size seven seat SUV, which competes with mainstream rivals like the Mitsubishi Outlander, Nissan X-Trail, and Honda CR-V.

The Elite version is the mid-grade in the Tiggo 8 line-up, offering a few more spec items over the base Urban, but not the all-wheel-drive system as offered in the top-spec Ultimate.

It is priced from $43,990 drive-away, making it about as affordable as entry-level versions of the Nissan X-Trail and Mitsubishi Outlander, but more expensive than the Mahindra XUV700 and LDV D90, while undercutting the base seven-seat Honda CR-V by a significant margin.

Standard equipment includes 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, dual 12.3-inch screens for the instrument cluster and multimedia touchscreen respectively, synthetic leather interior trim, built-in sat-nav, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, eight-speaker audio system, a wireless phone charger, a 360-degree parking camera, interior ambient lighting, dual-zone climate control, as well as heated and ventilated front seats.

The Elite grade specifically adds a power tailgate, heated exterior mirrors, a built-in dashcam, third row air vents with independent fan speed control, illuminated door sills, and a retractable cargo blind.

Like the base Urban grade, the Elite is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine (180KW/375Nm) driving the front wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Boot space measures in at 479 litres with the second row up, 117L with the third row up, or 739L with the second and third row folded flat.

Like all Chery products, the Tiggo 8 Pro Max is offered with seven years and unlimited kilometres of warranty, a seven-year capped-price servicing program, and seven years of roadside assistance.

While the Elite isn’t as much of a price-leader as the base Urban grade, it adds some significant equipment and is more powerful than many of its mainstream rivals. However, for a small additional outlay it seems as though the all-wheel-drive Ultimate grade is the best value in the context of the segment.
