Chery Tiggo Tiggo 2 2Chery

From December 2016 Chery sells we have sedans and hatchbacks — the demand for them during the crisis fell sharply. There are only crossovers, gamma is expanding. In the beginning of the year updated flagship Tiggo 5 (ZR, No. 2, 2017), soon arrived, Tiggo 3 (SP, n 5, 2017), and here came the turn of the youngest — Tiggo 2.

To understand its origin, let us remember the departed from Russia Chery Bonus saloon and hatchback Very. They were created on the platform of the A13, which is based on the chassis of the liftback Seat Toledo. That is the forefather of these cars was the Volkswagen Golf second generation! Tiggo 2 — successor of the pair, but from the ancestors there is practically nothing left. The platform upgraded, ground clearance is increased to 186 mm. Drive, as you can guess, only the front.

The body was taken from Chery Very and thoroughly reworked — the relationship does resemble that roof line and doorways. Fender flares and moldings on the exterior of unpainted plastic, gave a touch of brutality. Came out nice.

Tiggo 2 certified under the old rules until 1 January 2017, and then the manufacturer the next three years is entitled to sell the machine without the system ERA-GLONASS that its not in this car.

Bright orange inserts on the seats, front panel and doors look elegant. But they are not able to cover explicit ergonomic miscalculations. I sat down in the car — then buried her left knee into the block of electrically adjustable mirrors. Why not post it on the door? The adjustment range of the steering wheel insufficient. The dashboard is original, but the graphics, a La honeycomb dazzled. Electronic speedometer on the screen is too small.

The seat height does not adjust. Cushion and backrest wide, lateral support is weak, the lumbar support is barely felt.The seat height does not adjust.

Engine — 1.5-liter 106‑horsepower aspirated. There is no alternative. The first version of this unit, the company’s specialists AVL developed in 2008 for the saloon Bonus. Updated motor index SQRD4G15B different system of variable valve timing and meets the Euro‑5. Economy, as usual, played not for the better: the engine lost three horsepower and five Newton-meters of torque.

Thrust at low revs frankly not enough. Want to go brighter? Spin the motor up to 4500-5000 rpm. manual transmission running strong, to it no complaints. If you go quietly, leaning out of town on cruise control (on the machines in top Luxury vehicle), you can fit into 6 l/100 km, even without turning off the air conditioning.

Access to spark plug, air filter, tank power steering and the battery light. The engine number is clearly visible and easy to read. And if over time will become covered with rust, clean it with emery will be very easy.Access to spark plug, air filter, tank power steering and the battery light.

The train I and on the version with four-speed hydromechanical automatic QR416AHA. This modification of the French box DP0/AL4, which has been a lot of claims. How safe is it Chinese version? Only time will tell. But her character is still the same: thoughtful and unhurried. Pressed on the pedal and wait, and when the car starts to accelerate.

On passport data, 16 seconds to hundreds. The feelings, all twenty.

Tried to go to SPT mode (“sport”) in which the machine keeps longer transmission. A little confused by this: the sharp pressing on the gas pedal the tachometer needle goes over 5000 rpm, but good acceleration as it was not, and no. In Eco mode in the presence of strong nerves you can set records economy: I got 6.8 l/100 km, and from colleagues — less than five liters! But it is sickening the risk of boil hard-boiled a / C off.

Steering without a spark, but you can ride. At the same Iccrea steering is brighter and more transparent.

Suspension faithfully smoothes uneven asphalt and is not afraid of large pits is involuntarily remembered equally comfortable XRAY and Renault Sandero Stepway. But the dirt shakes stronger. Insulation fit, but if you set the wing flaps to muffle the “sandblasting” will be even better.

Chery has long worked with the British firm Lotus in this part of the finishing of the chassis, and it shows: Tiggo 2 was quite adequate for the car, without obvious failures. Comfortable suspension, roomy trunk (420 l), nice look. Do not forget that Tiggo 2 no stabilization system, which is becoming the norm for even the budget cars. Is the British advised her to save?

By the way, about the economy. Because Tiggo 2 deliver to us from the Chinese Dalian, the prices are higher than on cars of the Russian production. Basic Tiggo 2 is 759 900 rubles, which is 160 thousand more Icrea and only 57 thousand cheaper larger Tiggo 3. If the Chinese do not play in lowering chances to get closer to the leaders of the segment have not.
