Intermediate between Tiggo 2 (made in Jacareí-SP) and Tiggo 7, Tiggo 5x accelerated its sales by having a more balanced set of size, performance and price, cannibalizing sales of the big brother given the proximity and mechanical similarity.
In this, both have a 1.5 Turbo engine with 147 horsepower in gasoline and 152 horsepower in ethanol, as well as automated double-clutch transmission with six gears and front-wheel drive. The Tiggo 5x also has a multilink rear suspension.
