Chery Tiggo 8 Pro Vs Haval H6 2.0T AWD — More Similar Than You Think

Chery has increased the price of Tiggo 8 Pro for the second time since its launch. The current price of the SUV is Rs. 8.2 million, which places it in an interesting company.

Haval H6 2.0T AWD, in particular, has become a threat to the seven-seater SUV, as it promises better performance and aesthetics at a marginal price premium. This article will compare the two SUVs to ascertain which one is more appealing.

Let us dive in!

Exterior

Haval H6 2.0T

Haval H6’s boxy silhouette is complemented by its sharp front styling and broad stance. It has modern-looking pair of dual projector headlamps, a huge chrome mesh grille, an edgy bumper design, and a squared-off front fascia that enhances its road presence.

The side profile doesn’t have many lines. The body-colored side mirrors and door handles, and a single character line gives it a regal look. The chrome stripe around the windows and door sashes lends a slight cosmetic flair as well.

While the front is bold and aggressive, the rear end looks dull. The small rear windshield with a duck-tail spoiler and the taillight design makes the rear resemble most crossover SUVs on Pakistani roads. Overall, though, H6 is a handsome SUV.

Tiggo 8 Pro also looks subtle and modern. The front features a signature Tiggo series diamond grille, automatic LED Headlamps, modern twin-Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) on each side, and a similar front bumper design with larger vent cutouts.

It has a squared-off and conventional-looking side profile, with a few flashy styling elements such as 18″ alloy wheels, chromed side impacts, brushed aluminum roof rails, and a chromed strip that wraps halfway around the windows.

The rear design is also quite traditional. Apart from a flamboyant rear bumper with dual exhaust cutouts, LED taillights, and a spoiler on the tailgate, Tiggo 8 Pro looks similar to other SUVs. Overall, it looks good but lacks a ‘wow’ factor.

Interior

Haval H6 2.0T

Haval H6 boasts a minimalistic and futuristic cabin. Everything on the dash and the center console is either a screen, a dial, a small button, or a flat panel. The seats and other surfaces are wrapped in plush materials.

The contemporary three-spoke steering design looks modern, while the interior controls look as smooth, clean, and easily operable. In terms of space, the H6 is big enough to easily accommodate 5 passengers and their luggage.

Tiggo 8 Pro’s interior design showcases modern simplicity. A non-complex dash design is made classier with ambient light strips on the doors and the dash, silver and piano black trim pieces, large screens, and stitched leather.

Tiggo 8 Pro is a midsize crossover SUV with a spacious cabin that can seat up to seven passengers comfortably. Overall, it has a great interior which is modern, stylish, and more practical than its competitor.

Although H6 has fewer seats, it is surprisingly not much smaller than the Tiggo 8 Pro. Also, the smaller H6 is heavier than Tiggo 8 Pro, which is interesting. The measurements of both SUVs are as follows:

Price and Verdict

Models Prices (Rs.)
Chery Tiggo 8 Pro 8,199,000
Haval H6 2.0 AWD 8,499,000

Both SUVs have their own strengths, which makes them quite evenly matched. Haval H6 2.0T is more powerful and capable — courtesy of an All-Wheel Drive (AWD) powertrain. Chery Tiggo 8 Pro, on the other hand, is more practical, with seating for seven passengers and superior luggage capacity making it a more complete family hauler.

In terms of pricing, however, Tiggo 8 Pro enjoys a significant advantage over H6 2.0T, which may tip the odds in its favor. Although, for those who desire more power and better traction, H6 2.0T is a favorable choice.
