Chery Tiggo 4 PRO get DCT

Now with a Fancy Gearbox and Less Thirsty Habits

The Chery Tiggo 4 PRO is like your average family SUV: practical, decent-looking, and begs the question, "Isn't there something a little...more?" Well, fret no more, because Chery has blessed the Tiggo 4 PRO with a new dual-clutch transmission (DCT) that promises both better performance and surprising fuel economy.

Imagine this: you telling your friends you got a new "DCT" for your Tiggo. They'll either be impressed by your newfound knowledge of car parts, or completely clueless (we won't judge).

But what exactly does this fancy new gearbox do? In a nutshell, it should make the Tiggo 4 PRO feel more lively while sucking down less fuel. Chery's engineers claim a potential saving of close to 1.6 liters per 100 kilometers, depending on how heavy your foot is and how friendly the weather is. That's almost like getting a free coffee every time you fill up – certainly more exciting than the usual cupholder conversation starter.

Speaking of conversation starters, Chery hasn't stopped at just the gearbox. They've thrown in some interior upgrades too. The new center console is practically the Tiggo 7 Pro's cooler cousin, with extra storage space and a wireless charging pad (because who even carries a cable anymore?). The Elite SE version gets the royal treatment with a new high-resolution infotainment system that can navigate even without an internet connection and can chat with your phone whether it's an iPhone or an Android.

So, if you're looking for a family SUV that's no longer a wallflower, the new Tiggo 4 PRO with DCT might just be your cup of tea (or should we say, fuel-efficient coffee?). It starts at R382,900 and comes with a warranty that'll make your grandparents jealous (1 million kilometers/10 years on the engine, no less).
