Three models, Tank 500, Chery Tiggo 7 Pro and Tiggo 8 Pro Max, were tested using the Australian ANCAP method – cars for the Australian and New Zealand markets took part in the tests. All three earned the maximum five stars, but security experts identified their weaknesses. For example, it turned out that in certain circumstances the driver in Chery crossovers is not sufficiently protected and can receive serious injuries. The Tank 500 is doing better.

Let’s start with the Chery Tiggo 7 Pro, with which the Australians identified two problems. The first occurred during a frontal impact on a deformable barrier at a speed of 50 kilometers per hour with a 50% overlap, simulating a collision with an oncoming car. In this situation, the driver risks serious chest injury. The second problem is similar – insufficient protection for the driver when hitting a pole.

All of the above is also typical for the Chery Tiggo 8 Pro Max, ANCAP notes, but they did not conduct full tests of this model – they limited themselves only to tests of pedestrian safety and the operation of assistive systems. According to the organization’s website, this crossover earned 88 percent for front occupant protection, 87 percent for child occupant protection, 79 percent for pedestrian protection and 86 percent for electronic assistants.

Tank 500 coped with the tests better. The body-on-frame SUV scores as follows: 85 percent for driver and front passenger safety, 93 percent for child safety, 81 percent for pedestrian safety and 84 percent for driver assistance electronics.

The weak point of the “500th” turned out to be a hit against a pole: in such a situation the driver can get a chest injury, but the level of danger is assessed as medium. The same level of danger was noted for the chest of a passenger in the second row when hitting a stationary barrier.
