Chinese journalists shared photographs from a closed presentation, which outlined the Arrizo 8 update schedule. In November, the model will be switched to a traditional 8-speed automatic transmission with a torque converter: the transmission will be combined with a 2.0-liter engine. In addition, Chery Arrizo 8 will switch to the advanced Snapdragon 8155 chip and feature new options.

Chery Arrizo 8 has become popular in Russia: in the first quarter of 2024, the business sedan sold 2.5 thousand units, and both the Russian National Guard and the Ministry of Emergency Situations were among the buyers. We sell versions with a 1.6 engine, and in the Middle Kingdom there is a “senior” 2.0 turbo engine: it is this that will exchange the 7-speed “robot” for an 8-speed automatic of Chery’s own design.

According to preliminary data, the new gearbox can withstand torque of up to 440 Nm, which exceeds by a margin the characteristics of the 2.0 turbo-four (254 power, 390 Nm). Buyers may also be attracted by a media system with a new processor and improved performance. Few options are promised: electric trunk lid and gas filler flap, as well as the appearance of electrically adjustable passenger seats in base sedans.

It can be assumed that the Chery Arrizo 8 with an automatic transmission will be the most expensive version, that is, prices will exceed 150 thousand yuan (21 thousand dollars). A basic business sedan in China costs 100 thousand yuan ($14 thousand). In Russia, the range has recently been expanded, so the starting price has dropped to 2.8 million rubles.
