Chery’s Cheapest SUV Is Completely Declassified

China-based Chery has officially introduced the restyled 2021 Tiggo 3x Plus.

The SUV, which «opens» the line-up, has been produced in China since 2016. It is better known as the Chery Tiggo 3x there. Not so long ago, spy photos of the new vehicle appeared on the web, and now the manufacturer has announced the beginning of production. This is the first major upgrade for the car, which it had to wait much longer than other representatives of the model range. For example, the Tiggo 5x/Tiggo 4 has already undergone two upgrades.

Chery positions the restyled Tiggo 3x Plus as a completely new model. Presumably, the manufacturer implies the second generation of the SUV. Based on the fact that the prefix ‘Plus’ is added to the name, the new car will be sold along with its predecessor but positioned higher in China.
