Tiggo 8 “Performance Edition” is here, and the horsepower is superstar! Distance to pin crown, 8AT difference In the field of domestically-produced independent car brands, Chery Automobile is considered to be relatively old. In the face of the pandemic of SUV models in the last ten years, although Chery Automobile’s Tiggo series came out very early, its sense of existence at this stage is not so strong. Below, Haval h6 and Changan CS75plus have the strength to challenge the sales king, and Tiggo 8 as the absolute core sales pillar, the monthly sales can only be maintained at about 10,000 units, and there is still a big gap between the top sales. However, Chery Automobile now has more and more cards, especially the core powertrain is more abundant, because the strategy of insisting on positive research and development for so many years has begun to bear fruit, and the third-generation high-performance engine has become the core selling point of Chery’s models. In the recent batch of Ministry of Industry and Information Technology’s declaration list, Chery Tiggo 8 has appeared again, and it has been basically confirmed that it will be officially updated in July. This time the new Tiggo 8 will bring many surprises. First of all, judging from the appearance design of the declaration drawing, the styling style of the new Tiggo 8 has not changed much. The front face of the car is still designed a few years ago. The black large-mouth air intake grille is matched with a long matrix chrome decoration. Replaced with more narrow and long LED matrix headlights, there are not too many complicated lines on the side of the body, which is completely a calm route. There is a large area of triangular windows behind the C-pillar, which is a typical medium-sized SUV overall. Of course, Tiggo 8 can only be regarded as a relatively entry-level mid-size SUV. After all, the outline size of this car is not too large. The total length of the newly declared model is 4.7 meters and the wheelbase is 2710mm, which is only comparable to compact SUVs such as Haval h6. Therefore, in such a situation, it is not recommended to choose the 7-seater version. The space experience in the last row will be more cramped, and the 5-seater version of Tiggo 8 will be more comfortable. In fact, the biggest highlight of the new Tiggo 8 application information is the replacement of the powertrain. On the basis of the original 1.5t and 1.6t, the third-generation 2.0t engine has now been added. The first to carry the powertrain, this 2.0t engine has a declared maximum power of 187 kilowatts, which is already as high as 254 horsepower, which can be equal to the Volvo t5 version. Under such high horsepower, the comprehensive fuel consumption data can be controlled at 7 liters per unit. Hundred kilometers. After switching to a 2.0t engine, the new Tiggo 8 can be said to be a performance version, because its size and weight are not large, 254 horsepower can definitely bring the driving experience of an entry-level high-performance car, and the data level has surpassed the Geely Xingyue L . The only fly in the ointment is that it is matched with a 7-speed wet dual-clutch gearbox. If it can be replaced with an 8AT gearbox, the intuitive feeling to consumers will be more advanced and the distance to the pin crown will be closer. In fact, it is precisely because of Chery Automobile’s positive R&D strategy that AT gearboxes are excluded. It is impossible to purchase Aisin or ZF gearboxes in a short time. Of course, the current 7-speed wet dual-clutch transmission is used. The reliability of the box is not bad, mainly because it cannot cater to the preferences of a large number of consumers. Here comes the question, do you think Tiggo 8 can be hot by adding 2.0T? Welcome to leave a message in the comment area, let’s discuss together!
