Calmon: Caoa Chery Tiggo 7 Sport has a good price and simplifications

The most obvious external feature of the Tiggo 7 Sport is the elimination of the panoramic roof, but there have also been some simplifications in the mechanics.

Caoa Chery has developed a solution to address the competitive medium SUV segment. The Tiggo 7 Sport was launched in February as a 2025 model year and at a very attractive starting price: R $ 134,990. However, it will only arrive in dealerships in the second half of March. The strategy focused on maintaining the same appearance as the Tiggo 7 Hybrid, including the radiator grille. This “7” series launched in 2019 has accumulated 24,000 units sold.

Most obvious external element: elimination of the panoramic roof. But there have also been simplifications in the mechanics. The most important was the replacement of the 1.6 L turbo petrol engine (187 HP and 28 kgf·m) and the two-clutch automated gearbox with the 1.5 L turbo flex engine (150 HP/E; 147 HP/G and 21.4 kgf·m) shared with the Tiggo 5X and the 9-speed CVT automatic transmission. The drop in performance is evident.

The entire set has been lightened by 20 kg, thanks to the steel roof (instead of the glass one) and other specific changes: removal of the motorization of the tailgate and the storage box on the bottom of the trunk, which increased its volume useful for 525 kg. liters (VDA standard). Visually, the interior was the same. However, to offer the price indicated above, three driving assistants and a 360° camera have been released.

Caoa is studying the design of its own model, a very courageous step. The Tiggo 8 Pro PHEV will be produced next semester, in Anápolis (GO).
