Chery has managed to become the most successful Chinese brand in Russia in the first half of the year, not offering a single all-wheel drive crossover in our country. Chery’s Russian office promised to add a version with four drive wheels to the line for a long time, and now all-wheel drive appeared in the flagship Tiggo 8 Plus — though so far only in the Middle Kingdom.
A significant event was timed to coincide with the next update — the Tiggo 8 Plus again changed its appearance, and a powerful turbo engine of the Kunpeng line appeared under the hood. Previously, a 2.0-liter «turbo four» with a return of 254 horsepower and 390 Nm was relied on as an option only for

The four-wheel drive versions are better equipped and cost from 159,900 to 169,900 yuan (1.76 to 1.87 million rubles). Local Chery dealers will launch the model on November 8, and those who ordered the new product before that time will receive a discount of ten thousand yuan.
