CAOA-Chery Tiggo 5x (Brazil)

CAOA-Chery releases the Tiggo 5x in Brazil. The SUV, in pre-facelift J68 guise, is the fifth* locally-produced Chery nameplate; however, unlike the previous four models it is not rolling out of CAOA's recently taken over Chery plant in Jacareí. Instead, it is made alongside certain Hyundai vehicles at CAOA's first factory in Anápolis.

This version for Brazil is equipped with a 147-150 hp, 1.5T flex-fuel engine. (In some markets, the Tiggo 5x is called Tiggo 4.)

This is the T19FL. Both the J68* (a.k.a. T17) and T19 are being produced, although in the Chinese lineup the J68 has been reduced to just one variant, with the 1.5 turbocharged engine.

Brazil continues to produce the J68.

*J68 is identified by "teardrops" under the headlights.

P.S.: I had to change my answer on further investigation.

It is made complicated by the fact that the T19 comes only with an NA engine, whereas the T17 (J68) comes only with a turbo engine*. Furthermore, in some foreign markets, a 2.0-liter version of the T17 is offered which is not available in China. So, Chery needs to keep the T17 in production.

(There is also a difference between the T19 and T17 with regard to rear suspension, but I'm not going into that)

Some of the confusion will be mitigated in the near future because NDRC has approved the T19FL with both NA and turbo engines (but 1.5L only). I think, when these are launched, then Chery can stop making the T17 (for the Chinese market at least).

Sorry, Erik, I have to correct myself again. This is getting frustrating!

From the extensive galleries at Bitauto, I discovered that the J68 (T17) is offered with the body of the T19 since 2019, with same front and rear, and re: 2019 models & later, there is no way to distinguish them visually. The technical differences remain, as also the slight difference in dimensions.

This is the J68/T17 with 1.5 turbo:


Note NDRC code, engine code, displacement and power output:


Multi-link, independent suspension rear:
