Chery coming to Namibian shores

WHEN a car manufacturer has so much confidence in his product that he offers you a 10-year or one-million kilometre warranty (T&Cs apply) on the engine, it says a lot about the product.

Chinese car manufacturer Chery will soon have a presence on Namibian roads after the M+Z group managed to secure a deal to be the sole dealer for this not-so-new brand.

Sales manager Claudia Starzacher-Dennis says the group will sell the brand from the Mercedes premises in Windhoek, with the Swakopmund branch next in line to stock the Chery.

Other towns would follow soon, she says.

The Chery comes with a five-year 60 000km service plan, five-year or 150 000km warranty, and a 10-year or one-million kilometre warranty on the engine.

And to top this, almost all the boxes are ticked when it comes to looks, safety and other specifications.

It is a top car at a not-so-top-end price.

A car owner says about the Chery: “I am really impressed when it comes to comfort and fuel economy.”

The Chery will come in the Tiggo 4 Pro and Tiggo 7 models.

Both are more than eye candy with their ‘starry night’ front grille and bright colours.

The Tiggo 4 Pro will cost just over N$308 000, while the bigger Tiggo 8 will be just over N$505 000.

The middle brother, the Tiggo 7, will retail at N$445 000.

“You are paying N$308 000, but you get the value of N$500 000,” Starzacher-Dennis says about the intro-level vehicle.

It is a an SUV and a nice seven-seater family vehicle, she says.

“We all look for value for our money, and the Chery is that car for all Namibians, but I will not put a peg in the ground yet. We will receive the first batch of 20 units in about 10 days’ time,” Starzacher-Dennis says.

The cars are available in both manual and auto transmission with powered-by-petrol engines varying between 1,5l and 2,0l, and delivering from 83kW to 187kW.

The 1,5 Tiggo will give you around 7,5l/100km, and the 1,6 turbo petrol 10,5l/100km, while the 2,0TGDi comes in more efficient at 7l/100km regarding fuel consumption.

Technicians are already trained to take care of your car when it is due for service and repairs.

The company has already sent their technical team for training, Starzacher-Dennis says.
