The new 2024 Chery Tiggo 7 Pro is a five-seater SUV that's surprisingly roomy for its size and is packed with value for money. Let's find out if it is a practical BabyDrive for families and put it through our BabyDrive testing with Infasecure child seats and Thule prams…

When it comes to installing child seats in the new Chery Tiggo 7 Pro, there are ISOFix points in both outer rear seats. They are within lovely plastic guides, so you just push back the plastic flap to access the ISOFix point. They are nice and easy to connect to.

There are top tether anchorages in the backs of all three rear seat backs. They are easy to connect to through the boot.

Three Infasecure child seats fit really nicely across the rear seats of the Chery Tiggo 7 Pro. I installed the Infasecure Quattro Onyx and Infasecure Achieve More in the two outer seats and the Liberty Onyx booster seat in the central seat.

The Chery Tiggo 7 Pro has good legroom. With this combination of child seats, we could fit a 186cm driver in front or someone taller on the passenger side.

The Chery Tiggo 7 Pro keeps rear passengers comfortable with air vents in the back of the central console box. These vents are great for keeping little passengers at the right temperature while driving along. There are also USB sockets for charging rear passenger devices while driving and a storage shelf for a phone.

On the back of both front seats are map pockets that will fit but not fully conceal your kids' iPads or books.

When you are only using the two outer rear seats, there is a fold-down armrest in the central seatback with two cup holders. They will hold a child's drink cup or a reusable or disposable coffee cup fit in them, too.

The rear door bins are a good size and will hold a refillable water bottle and a wallet and there are storage wells in the handles too.

In the front of the Chery Tiggo 7, there is a central console bridge providing ample storage above and below it.

The central console has two cup holders on top that will hold a reusable or disposable coffee cup. In front of them is a wireless phone charging pad with USB and USB-C sockets.

Underneath the bridge is a good storage area fitting an iPad and wallet.

The central console box is great! It's a very generous size and has a vent inside it, so you can make it cold if you want to by rotating and opening the vent inside it so air can flow in. There is also a pouch in the bottom with a window-breaking hammer and seatbelt cutter in case of an emergency. It is fantastic to see this included in a car for passenger safety.

The glove box is a good size and will hold a wallet and iPad with the manual.

It's also good to see a lined glasses case in the ceiling as a lot of manufacturers are no longer including them, leaving drivers with nowhere to keep their glasses where they won't get damaged.

The front door bins will hold your refillable water bottle, and an iPad fits, too. There are also storage wells in the front door handles.

The Chery Tiggo 7 Pro's boot space is generous; it fits 11 shopping bags, which is comparable to the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross's eleven. The MG HS and Honda ZR-V both hold twelve shopping bags, and the GWM Haval H6 holds thirteen.

The boot floor of the Chery Tiggo 7 Pro is nice and flat for an emergency nappy change too!

The interior of the Tiggo 7 Pro is minimal and clean. Most buttons and dials you'd usually find on the dash are within the touch media touch screen.

The large, flat, integrated media screen makes it feel clutter-free.

One of the features I like in the 2024 Chery Tiggo 7 Pro for families is the child lock on the driver's door control panel. One press of the child lock button, and the rear doors and windows are both locked, stopping your kids from accidentally opening the door while driving along or playing with the window.

The media touch screen in the Chery Tiggo 7 Pro is really lovely and easy to use.

It has a really clear 360-degree panoramic camera image which makes visibility around the vehicle nice and easy. You can turn the camera on while driving too.

There is a lot you can customise about the Tiggo 7 Pro within the vehicle settings screen.

You control the climate settings through the media screen…

… but you can also change the climate settings by touching the icon on the top right of the screen and verbally asking to change the temperature! It's really helpful while driving. You can also use this to change other things in the car like opening and closing windows for example.

The Chery Tiggo 7 Pro has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto so you can access your phone's navigation, communication and listening apps while driving.

When you put it in reverse, the rearview camera image is lovely and clear and you have different angles you can view from, including the 3D panoramic view.

The Chery Tiggo 7 Pro seems like great value for money given how many features are included for the price. It's a straightforward car to drive that is easy to just get in and go. It handles nicely and is quite smooth too. Visibility is very good in the Tiggo 7 Pro. With three Infasecure child seats installed in the back, I could see well out of the rear window and out of the side windows too (not to mention you can use the cameras while driving forward if for example you have the boot piled high with things for a family holiday). The turning circle is good so parking and maneuvering in school and supermarket carparks is easy too.

2024 Chery Tiggo 7 Pro

Overall, the Tiggo 7 Pro makes a very practical and affordable BabyDrive, it fits three Infasecure child seats in the back and the boot can hold a double Thule pram.

The Chery Tiggo 7 Pro has a five-star ANCAP safety rating and has eight airbags as standard.

Dual frontal airbags, side chest-protecting and side head-protecting (1st & 2nd row) airbags, and a driver knee airbag are standard. A centre airbag which provides added protection to front seat occupants in side impact crashes is also standard.
