Analyze the advantages of the new Tiggo 8 with one heart and one mind

  International Online auto channel News (Wu Keming): Only one year later, Chery Tiggo 8 upgraded its engine on the annual modified model that went on sale in May, changing the original 1.5T engine into Chery ACTECO series 1.6TGDI engine. Considering the common annual change products, it is rare for Tiggo 8 to be comparable to the "replacement" annual change. As the flagship model in Chery SUV product series, it is not difficult to understand that the Tiggo 8 should be equipped with the latest technology in time. After all, the flagship product should show the most advanced technology of the brand. However, after the new Tiggo 8 was replaced with a 1.6T engine, three medium-sized SUV products of Chery’s three brands showed a very high "repetition rate", which confirmed the reliability and multi-compatibility of this engine from a certain angle, thus forming a "one door, three outstanding" situation.

  In addition to upgrading the engine, the new Tiggo 8 also has obvious changes in the appearance and interior. The three-screen surrounding digital intelligent cockpit has greatly increased the technological atmosphere of the Tiggo 8. As the biggest highlight of the upgrade, the middle and high-end models of the new Tiggo 8 are equipped with the 16.TGDI engine of ACTECO series, and the transmission system is matched with the 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox of Gertrak, with a maximum power of 145kW and a maximum torque of 290 N m.

  From the point of view of power parameters, some friends may have found that the redesigned Tiggo 8 is actually equipped with the same powertrain as Starway TX, which is the brand-new and leading high-end brand of China automobile as Chery Holding Group. From this, it can be seen whether the change of the core of Tiggo 8 is influenced by its own "high-end brand" in terms of power. Now that we are talking about the star road, let’s deeply analyze the brand lineup of Chery Holding Group. Jietu, also the automobile brand of Chery Holding Group, is also equipped with this powertrain in the middle and high-end models of Jietu X90. As the Tiggo 8 is equipped with Chery’s latest 1.6T engine, it can be seen that Chery’s ACTECO series engines have extensive movement and mature technology. The later maintenance will be more "convenient" under the condition that the power core technology is completely similar.

  The price is close to the people and highlights the cost performance.

  1. The price range of Jetway X90 is 79,900-141,900 yuan, and the starting price of the model equipped with 1.6T engine is 128,900 yuan.

  2. The price range of Chery Tiggo 8 is 88,800-155,900 yuan, and the starting price of the model equipped with 1.6T engine is 119,900 yuan.

  3. The price range of Starway TX is 125,900-175,900 yuan, and the starting price of the model equipped with 1.6T engine is 125,900 yuan.

  From the price point of view, Jietu is a typical entry-level brand, and the price difference between Chery brand and Xingtu brand is quite obvious, but it seems to overlap from the price of models equipped with 1.6T engines. The most typical entry-level brand that is close to the people, Jetway has the highest price. The Tiggo 8 model, which is also Chery Holding Group, will take away the price advantage of Jetway X90 with a price difference of 9,000 yuan.

  Abandoning the 7-seat layout, the rear space is released.

  1. Jetway X90 has a length, width and height of 4840/1925/1718mm and a wheelbase of 2850mm.

  2. Chery Tiggo 8 has a length, width and height of 4700/1860/1746mm and a wheelbase of 2710 mm.

  3. The body length, width and height of Xingtu TX are 4690/1885/1706mm, and the wheelbase is 2715mm.

  If the price advantage of the Tiggo 8 is not convincing enough, then the comparison of the sizes of these three cars is naturally more clear. Although the body size of the Star Way TX and Chery Tiggo 8 is close to each other, the Jetway X90 has an absolute advantage in size on the surface, but the Tiggo 8 has abandoned the "chicken rib" seven-seat layout, which will improve the seating space of the second row. In fact, the size difference between Tiggo 8 and Starway TX can be ignored, but Starway TX has become the "green leaf" of Tiggo 8 under the advantage of losing the price, and the three-screen surrounding digital intelligent cockpit with the interior of Tiggo 8 has also attracted the attention of many young consumers.

  Three arrows together help sales increase.

  Chery Group has made three arrows in three markets: low, medium and high. The low-end products are Jetway, the middle-end products are Tiggo, and the high-end products are Starway. However, from the actual product performance, the three brands are not clearly distinguished. They are all equipped with the latest ACTECO series 16.TGDI engine of Chery Group. Even if the low-priced models with 1.5T are close in pricing, there will be no internal friction when the price ranges are highly overlapped. This may be the intention of Chery Group to "have three outstanding customers". No matter what the consumer chooses, as long as they are "indecisive" between the three brands, Chery actually.

  Write at the end:

  A few years ago, Chery Automobile, once the champion of independent sales volume, was successively surpassed by brands such as Changan, Great Wall and Geely. Although in recent years, Ruiqi Automobile has been constantly adjusting in fluctuations, including the construction of its own brands and internal systems. Chairman of Chery Automobile Co., Ltd.: Yin Tongyue often uses "Chery just squatted down and tied a shoelace on the way to high speed." To compare Chery’s current market performance. Judging from the reaction in the market, the product arrangement of Chery Holding Group has formed a situation of "one door and three outstanding people". While considering the competitiveness of products, Chery pays more attention to product layout. When the comprehensive quality of products is improved, it breaks the positioning balance of low, medium and high-end, or it will be a new growth point to promote sales.
