Chery Tiggo 5 FL (2016) Photo & Video
The compact SUV Chery Tiggo 5 was released to the market just over two years ago, and in the fall of 2015 the company has agreed on its unscheduled renovation due to the insignificant sales statistics in China. An upgrade aimed to attract young people’s attention to the model has affected only the appearance and interior decoration, disregarding its technical part.
And externally the renewed Chery Tiggo 5 has changed minimally, but began to look fresh and appealing. SUV got modern lighting with LED-elements and completely redone bumper with a new grille.
Overall dimensions of the Chinese «five» have remained in their “pre-reform” state: 4506 mm in length, 1841 mm in width and 1740 mm in width with the value of wheelbase stretching to 2610 mm and its clearance equals 163 mm. In the “battle” state the mass of the vehicle varies from 1495 to 1537 kg.
The interior of Chery Tiggo 5 FL after restyling has become more beautiful and youth-like, and all these – thanks to the new multimedia complex with a large screen, color display of the onboard computer in a dash panel and an extended range of color schemes for finishing. As for the other parameters – they have remained the same – contemporary design, precise ergonomics and sturdy finishing materials.
The salon of the crossover is five-seated, and space reserve on the first and second rows of seats is enough to accommodate grown-up passengers with comfort. Luggage compartment of the upgraded Tiggo 5 FL, depending on position of the “gallery” backrest contains from 370 to 972 liters of luggage, taking in account a full-size spare wheel under the hood.
At home, a restyled version of the Chery Tiggo 5 is still available with two petrol “fours”: the 2.0-liter “aspirated” state, which develops 139 horsepower at 5,750 revolutions / minute and 182 Nm of torque with 4500 rev / min 1.5-liter turbo engine developing 152 hp.
A 5-speed “mechanics” or stepless ITC variator are responsible for traction supply on the front axle. The updated Chery Tiggo 5 is built on iAuto platform with an independent suspension layout in front and in the rear with McPherson strut and double wishbones, respectively. Steering rack structure of Chery Tiggo 5 FL is equipped with hydraulic servo control, and all the wheels are equipped with disc brakes (ventilated at the front axle) with ABS and EBD.
By default the crossover “flaunts” with LED running lights, a pair of front airbags, alloy 17 inches wheels, fabric interior, air conditioner, parking sensors, multimedia console with color screen as well as ABS and EBD.
