The tailgate of the “seven” Tiggo Pro is equipped with an electric drive, due to which it can open automatically if you approach it with a key fob, you do not need to make any manipulations with your foot under the bottom of the car.
The opening level of the sash is high, and the lifting is carried out quickly.
Also, the door can be opened mechanically using a button located in the center just above the rear license plate.
The main parameters of the luggage compartment:
- standard volume – 475 liters, if the second passenger row in the folded state – 1500 liters;
- loading height – 750 mm;
- maximum width of the tailgate opening – 1060 mm, height – 840 mm;
- height from the false panel to the ceiling sheathing – 890 mm, to the top curtain – 500 mm;
- the width between the side skins, excluding protrusions – 1160 mm, between the plastic covers of the wheel arches – 970 mm;
- length when measured from the rear sill to the backs of the second row seats in the lower part – 880 mm, with the sofa folded down to the backs of the front seats – 1500 mm.
Behind in the trunk there is a small curb that does not allow cargo to spontaneously fall out of the car if the car is tilted.
There are hooks for fixing luggage on the sides of the cargo compartment, a backlight is located on the left side, a 12-volt outlet is not provided by default.
The top curtain is a retractable type, it can be easily dismantled.
In the underground space, under the false panel, there is a full-size spare tire, an organizer with a jack and a wheelbrace is laid on top of it.
Under the wheel itself there is a small noise and vibration isolation layer, but around it there is only painted body metal.
The backs of the sofa of the second row are two parts that are laid out independently of each other, divided among themselves in a ratio of 60/40.
When they are folded, a flat floor is not obtained, and there remains a slight upward slope closer to the front of the body. But the step can be compensated by placing something like an air mattress here.
The crash test was conducted by the Chinese Center for Automotive Technology and Research CATARC according to the C-NCAP methodology. Unfortunately, the previous version of Chery Tiggo 7 without the “Pro” prefix passed the safety tests. Nevertheless, we can assume that the new model, built on the same T1X platform, will be at least as good as its predecessor. With a frontal impact on a collapsible barrier at a speed of 64 km / h, 92 percent protection was noted. The loads on the chest of the front riders and on the passenger’s left shin were subjected to little criticism. A side crash test on a crushable barrier at a speed of 50 km / h did not reveal any risk zones at all. In total, the SUV earned the maximum 5 stars and 56.6 points out of 62 possible.
