How does Chery Malaysia's lineup of SUVs compare to its natural rivals? Yesterday marked a significant milestone in Chery's renewed operations in Malaysia. Members of the media were invited to attend a preview of their SUVs, which coincided with Chery's first physical event in Malaysia under a new team. The takeaway from the event was that Chery has a fighter for most of the popular SUVs available in Malaysia, so we thought we would pair them up against what we think would be their natural competitors to see how they would stack up.  Under phase 1, Chery will be introducing the Tiggo 4 Pro, Tiggo 7 Pro, Tiggo 8 Pro, and the Omoda 5. Right now, they are nothing but names and numbers to those who are uninitiated, so by putting them next to their natural rivals, we hope to paint a better picture of their target market. The Chery SUVs at the preview were not in their final Malaysian specifications and because of this we won't go into full detail about them. Chery has not announced any pricing for their cars just yet, but we expect them to be quite competitive. Chery Tiggo 4 Pro VS Perodua Ativa The Tiggo 4 Pro is an offering targeted towards younger buyers as it has a combination of technology and comfort. In terms of size, the Tiggo 4 Pro is the smallest model in the Tiggo Pro family, and from the naked eye, it looks to be around the same size as the Perodua Ativa.

From first impressions, this model offers a balance between urban style and luxury features. It has the same engine as the Tiggo 4 Pro and surprisingly the same amount of power too. Chery did say they are considering  a plug-in-hybrid version for the Malaysian market, but that is still up in the air.

This car is aimed at younger buyers who want a futuristic SUV with smart technology such as ADAS.

Core spec for spec, they are actually quite good and can really give some of these popular SUVs a run for their money.  Yes, there are some concerns about resale value as we found out from some of the comments made, but Chery is now in Malaysia under Chery Automobile Co. Ltd, which means Chery in Malaysia will have a lot of support from the principal company. All we need to know is the pricing and finalised specifications, and if that's good why shouldn't anyone consider a Chery?
