One could tell how far a car manufacturer has progressed by the entry-level vehicle it offers. In the case of Chery here in the Philippines, that would be the Tiggo 2, a sporty looking subcompact crossover equipped with a host of safety features, better ground clearance and a Euro-5 compliant 1.5 VVT gasoline engine.
Its distributor here, United Asia Automotive Group, Inc. (UAAGI), is so proud of this vehicle that it gave the Tiggo 2 (along with the rest of Chery Tiggo models) with an industry-leading 10-year or 1 million-km engine warranty, a 5-year general warranty, and a free full preventive maintenance service (PMS) for three years.
Chery Auto Philippines currently offers four crossover models: the subcompact Tiggo 2 and Tiggo 5X, the compact Tiggo 7, and the midsize 7-seater Tiggo 8. All feature a 1.5-liter DOHC 16-valve EFI VVT Euro 5-compliant engines (turbocharged for the Tiggo 7 and Tiggo 8) and have automatic transmissions on all models (MT is available on the Tiggo 2 and Tiggo 5X models).
What is even more thrilling, according to Alvin Lu, Chery Auto Philippines VP for Dealer Development and External Affairs, is that those who will be purchasing a brand-new Chery crossover from Oct. 8 to Dec. 20 will have the chance to win a second brand-new Tiggo 2 AT 2-Tone crossover via the Merry Chery Christmas raffle promo.
“Buyers of the Chery Tiggo 2 (MT or AT variant) get two coupons while every purchase of the subcompact Chery Tiggo 5X (MT, AT or AT Luxury) earns buyers five coupons. Those who buy the compact 1.5 turbo-powered Chery Tiggo 7 AT receive a whopping 14 coupons while buyers of the top-of-the-line 1.5-liter turbocharged Chery Tiggo 8 7-seater midsize crossover (Luxury or Luxury EX variant) get eight coupons,” explained Lu.
Lu added that aside from the Tiggo 2 grand prize, lucky buyers could also win a brand-new Vespa S125 scooter, an iPhone 11 Pro 64GB, one of five Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 128GB, or any of the 10 Sodexo gift certificates worth P5,000 each.
“But that’s not the only way to earn coupons,” said Lu. “Customers who refer another buyer during the promo period will also be entitled with the same number of coupons based on the unit purchased by the other buyer, provided that the buyer must declare the name of the referrer upon purchase (only customers who have purchased within the promo period are entitled to earn coupons via referral).”
Lu reminded that customer must purchase the brand new Tiggo vehicle from any of the following Chery dealerships nationwide: Chery La Union; Chery Marilao; Chery Quezon Avenue; Chery North EDSA; Chery Pasig; Chery Cainta; Chery Pasong Tamo; Chery Alabang; Chery GMA, Cavite; Chery Bacoor; Chery Camarines Sur; Chery Iloilo; Chery Bacolod; Chery Cebu; Chery General Santos; Chery Cagayan De Oro; and Chery Davao.
