Updated Chery Tiggo Tiggo 4 and 7 and their new turbo: test drive

Chinese automakers reaction — like Jackie Chan. We just criticized for the sluggish dynamics Tiggo Tiggo 4 and 7 with two-liter petrol aspirated, and the Chinese have already offered a more powerful-liter turbo. Swagger — a lot!Yuriy Timkin “Behind the wheel”

Solid four

To get acquainted with the updated crossovers I arrived in Alma-ATA.

At the end of September in the southern capital of Kazakhstan was thirty-degree heat, and I thought that overheated in the sun, because did not know the habits of the familiar Tiggo 4. I drove it in the summer and then was not happy with the handling: soft suspension made so much roll in the corners that had to drop the speed. Even more annoyed nervous handlebar: should the wheel get into a hole like a bagel escaped from the hands.

The road to the high plateau assy will not name smooth — bumps enough. But the wheel strikes did not arrive! It turns out that the Chinese, instead of steering mounted electric. With “zero” became clearer and the level of feedback is higher. “Electrocity” Tiggo 4 is much nicer and easier in the turns. However, the rolls are still great.

Engine “seven” (on the right) equipped with an intercooler, air-cooled, and the Quartet a cooling liquid.Polutoralitrovogo petrol turbo different distributed injection, variable valve timing, variable length intake tract and exhaust gas recirculation.

But the main innovation engine. From the two-litre atmosfernika there is an alternative — liter-turbo with a serious advantage in power (147 HP vs 122) and torque (210 N·m vs 180). Moreover, the maximum thrust lies on a plateau 1750-4000 rpm, while at atmosfernika peak is at 4000 rpm Itself forced Tiggo noticeably more cheerful and easily leaves a brother behind like at the start (acceleration to a hundred in 9.7 seconds, as opposed to 14.0), and the accelerations on the move. Huge difference! But I wouldn’t pay extra for it of 90 thousand rubles.

Speed turns 4 Tiggo not very fond. Preferably straight and flat roads, that’s his speciality.Speed turns 4 Tiggo not very fond. Preferably straight and flat roads, that’s his speciality.

The main thing is to spin the engine at least 2,000 rpm, otherwise not enough traction. And thanks to a ground clearance of 190 mm can safely leave the asphalt. But all wheel drive would be nice.

First, with this motor 4 Tiggo noticeably noisier. Especially it is felt at idle: the machine drones on porykivaet. As in a transformer box sitting. Second, the 1.5 engine matched exclusively with a robotized gearbox DCT with dual clutch (the product of the company Getrag). And if mainline speeds it has no claims, the city the robot upsets the unnecessary bustle and choppy. Particularly sensitive push when moving from first gear to second. In permanent tubes tired quickly.

The version with the turbo engine is different and more interesting interiors. Instead of a handbrake lever — key of the drive. Front airbags supplemented by side, as well as inflatable curtains. For second-row passengers have provided top vents. However, if the corner you put the comfort, it is better to look at the Chery Tiggo 7.

Look before you leap

Tiggo 7 is built on the same platform as Tiggo 4, but thanks to a 40 mm stretched wheelbase it noticeably larger. In the second row sit without a hint of tightness, and the front fit I like: seats are better tailored and upholstered, not a “skin young leatherette”. But the General architecture shows that debuted yesterday. “Seven” almost no soft plastic, not something that Tiggo 4.

However, Tiggo 7 — a bird of higher flight. Understand that immediately after you start the engine. Where noise and vibration? They are not in sight. Better insulated wheel arches — stones and “sand-blasting”, in contrast to younger Tiggo, did not bother.

In Tiggo 4 turbo is compatible only with the robot, and the “seven” exclusively with a six-speed mechanics. And this bunch I liked a lot more. Yes, start without podgotovki does not work. Up to 2000 rpm thrust is not enough, we have to actively work the lever a 6-speed mechanics (clarity of switching, by the way, not bad). But you should settle into it, and this Chery starts to be fun. On the highway, “seven” flying bird and with pleasure goes on overtaking. According to factory data, up to hundreds accelerates it a little longer than Tiggo 4, but my internal stopwatch tells the opposite.

But on the mountain road to maintain a high pace difficult. Capabilities of the motor missing, but the Chinese tire Giti Comfort before losing traction. It’s a shame, because the suspension settings of “seven” I liked more. It is denser, less prone to the buildup. Moreover, significant losses in smoothness I felt.

The last part of the road to the assy plateau and the road to name difficult: such a broken primer I have not seen. The relief on a couple sections reminded of the Martian surface. On the hills Chery periodically post wheel; had to take back in order to find the right line. How can you not stop being sad about all-wheel drive, which for Tiggo is not provided in principle. Transmission 4×4 could be a good Rover, after all, ground clearance (190 mm) Chery in its segment inferior to only a couple Renault Duster/Kaptur. Another wishlist machine. To go to “pen” we want a few.

Price 152‑strong Tiggo 7 — 1 199 000 rubles, and such money not a single classmate of comparable power not to buy. But basic is not a poor 18‑inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, power accessories, rear view camera, Parking sensors, nine-inch touch screen, heated front seats, Keyless entry and engine start.

The offer seems to be good, but… it is Necessary to measure seven times to decide on a purchase. The firm Chery is clearly necessary to reconsider the modification. Why turbulence “seven” is only in the initial configuration Sport? If I want a car with “winter” package, electrically adjustable seats and the system of the circular review, you have to take the performance Elite aspirated two-liter and a CVT. Naduvnaya Tiggo 4, on the contrary, will not prevent the version on the “handle” and variants with the base, not top equipment. Flexibility and more flexibility!

WAITING FOR REINFORCEMENTS

Next year, Chery will bring to Russia’s flagship crossover Tiggo 8 on the stretched platform of T1X. Drive — only the front. Body length 4700 mm, width — 1860 mm, height — 1746 mm. Thus, “eight” fall into a segment where Geely already has Atlas and Haval F7. Exact data about the engines yet. Almost guaranteed in the range will be a-liter 147‑horsepower turbo. There is a hope that will bring top modification 1.6 TGDI (197 HP and 290 N·m). In conjunction with him working a seven-step robot with two wet clutches.
