A 1-million km engine warranty. That’s what you get with the Chery Tiggo 4 Pro

That 1-million kilometre engine warranty isn’t click bait – it’s a fact. Although there are some strings attached. Read our blog post for all the facts.

After three years of absence, the Chinese automaker Chery returned to South Africa in August last year. The brand made a big splash in the ultra-competitive compact crossover market when it introduced its first product, the Chery Tiggo 4 Pro, in November 2021. While the specs look very impressive on paper and the pricing is competitive, the Tiggo faces stiff competition from the likes of Toyota Urban Cruiser, Renault Kiger, Ford EcoSport, Haval Jolion, Kia Sonet and other similar offerings.

According to Wheels24, the launch offer of a 1-million km engine warranty comes with some provisos. The Wheels24 article states, a standard four year or 150 000km factory warranty applies to all new Tiggo 4 Pro models sold. This warranty remains with the vehicle. The second, a free extension for another five years and 850 000km for the engine is added automatically at the end of the first warranty, provided that the vehicle is still owned by the original owner. 

Chery offers the Tiggo 4 Pro in four trim levels: Urban, Comfort, Elite, and Elite SE. The Urban and Comfort come equipped with a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder, naturally aspirated petrol engine, generating 83 kW and 138 Nm of torque. The Elite and Elite SE models have a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine creating 108 kW and 210 Nm of torque.

The entry-level models give you a choice between a 5-speed manual and Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). The high-spec Elite variants are accessible in either a 6-speed manual or Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).

The new Chery Tiggo comes with a bold fascia featuring a diamond-shaped grille, LED headlamps with crystal diamond lenses, and G-type dynamic daytime running lights. We find 3D hollow light band blackened taillights at the back and chrome-plated double exhausts with concealed dual exhaust outlets to minimise exhaust sound. The rust-proof and robust multi-spoke mirror design alloy wheels highlight the crossover’s sporty persona.

The real magic happens inside the cabin, which is more modernised/digital and upscale than most competitors. Starting with its comfort and practicality, it presents you with a 6-way electrically adjustable driver’s seat, up to 1100 litres of boot capacity, 34 storage spaces, and a high-quality comfy, forward sliding centre armrest.

Along with the intelligent dual-zone control in the front row and air outlets in the second row, the Pro offers a 4-way adjustable steering wheel with multi-function buttons.

The Chery Tiggo impresses us on the tech front, as it is one step ahead of competitors like Toyota Urban Cruiser. While the Toyota's crossover boasts a 7-inch touchscreen, the Tiggo comes with a 10.25-inch UHD ultra-clear floating LCD screen with a resolution up to 1920x720. Moreover, the high-resolution 7.0-inch instrument display is fully digital compared to Toyota’s analogue dials with a multi-information display.

When it comes to occupants' safety, the Chery Tiggo 4 Pro beats the Urban Cruiser again, thanks to six airbags, ABS with EBD, brake assist, electronic stability control with traction control, cruise control, tyre pressure monitoring, and hill descent control etc. The Cruiser comes with only two airbags, ABS with EBD and brake assist.

Tiggo’s price starts at R269,900 and goes as high as R359,900. While the price is competitive, what really sets this crossover apart is its 5-year/60,000 km and 5-year/150,000 km vehicle warranty – not to mention that 1-million km warranty, even if there are strings attached.
