Chery Tiggo 4 Pro has plenty of safety features for users. It adopts a high-strength body. The whole car covers adopt galvanised steel, with high strength steel accounting for more than 60%, and Bentler ultra-high-strength hot-formed steel is adopted with a yield strength of more than 1500Mpa. It is equipped with six ring-type airbags to provide comprehensive and thoughtful protection and reduce injury to personnel in the car.

In addition, it is equipped with a body anti-theft alarm system. The engine anti-theft system only recognises the original factory key. If you enter any other key, the car will immediately cut off the circuit automatically and if someone pries the door or trunk, it will immediately trigger the anti-theft alarm, and the turn signal continues to blink.

Other safety feature includes ABS, electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD), electronic stability programme (ESP), TCS, rolling stability control (RSC), hill assist, hill descent and direct tyre monitoring system. The vehicle even sends a fatigue alert that reminds you to take a rest if you drive the vehicle for too long.
