Chery's supposed lack of money hasn't stopped it from going ahead with its multi-model Tiggo SUV rollout. The Tiggo3 -- which looks much like a RAV4 -- has done well for Chery, so now it's preparing the Tiggo5 and Tiggo6.
The Tiggo5 is expected to do battle with the VW Touareg and BMW X5 (and by extension, the Shuanghuan CEO). With rugged yet basic styling penned by Bertone, the Tiggo5 will be powered by Mitsubishi engines including the 3.0-liter V6 and 2.0-liter turbo.

      So would two old ladies driving one of these classify as "tiggo biddies"?

      Looks crude. they should learn the basics first, not talk big first.

        Exactly, Geely kind of learnt this the hard way when they started by offering DVD, Nav and all sorts of luxuries on a tiny hatchback with an anemic engine, useless dynamics, and omg-wtf-is-that huge panel gaps.

      At first glance I thought the title read Chevy and I laughed.

      Then I looked at it again and threw up a little in my mouth.

      Bertone designed that? Epic FAIL.

      Hey China, remember how everyone said you should stop stealing other manufacturer's designs and come up with your own original designs? Never mind. Please, PLEASE steal other company's designs if this is all that you can come up with on your own. Thanks.

        It's actually designed by Bertone.
        I noticed many Chinese automakers hire an Italian design house like Bertone or Pininfarina for some of their cars.

        It seems like the Italian design houses can't really do very good styling either. It makes more sense just to copy and save the money if you can get away with it.

        The question is, how much does an italian design company charge for a decent design and how much are these companies willing to pay?

      Am I the only one who read the article as saying OTHER SUV's will be launched to fight the X5 and Touareg, not this one...? Or do I just have a hangover?
