UNITED ASIA Automotive Group, Inc. (UAAGI), the official distributor of Chery vehicles in the Philippines, grew its network of dealerships to 18 with the recent opening of Chery Sta. Rosa, Laguna. The dealership is operated by Antara Ventures, Inc. headed by Irene Montemayor.

“We are proud and excited to welcome Chery Sta. Rosa to the fast-growing Chery network of dealerships,” said UAAGI President Rommel Sytin, in a release. “We are growing our family of Chery dealerships and service centers at a very difficult and challenging time — but with the deep talent behind the management and staff of Chery Sta. Rosa, we are confident that we have all the ingredients to successfully market the Chery brand and its automobiles.”

Located at Greenfield Automall on the Sta. Rosa-Tagaytay Road in Don Jose, the showroom is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day.

Chery Sta. Rosa has a 130-sq.m. four-car showroom as well as six spacious service bays, which can accommodate the full line of Chery Tiggo crossovers and SUVs. The dealership maintains a fleet of test drive units and invites prospective buyers to try out the latest Chery Tiggo models under full health and safety protocols.

“Sta. Rosa is the best central business district in the south and is a center of industrial parks,” added Chery Sta. Rosa dealer principal Montemayor. “We want local residents and expatriates of the area to have one more choice when looking for a car that would take them to great places,” she added.

Ms. Montemayor said she chose Chery for its “safety and technology — two of the features that consumers always ask for. Chery vehicles have basic yet modern technology that you’d wish to have inside your car. With the technology, it’s easier to navigate and enjoy the ride.”

UAAGI and Antara Ventures commit to work hand in hand to offer high-quality vehicles and services to the Philippine market and to accomplish Chery Philippines’ goal to be the top choice for small to midsize vehicles for both business and leisure use. With an excellent mix of subcompact, compact and midsize crossovers and SUVs powered by naturally aspirated and turbocharged engines with manual and automatic transmissions, Chery has rapidly grown its brand and dealership network since its launch in November 2019.

“With the support of the whole Chery Sta. Rosa team, we are confident that the Sta. Rosa showroom will be a significant contributor to the brand’s growth,” said Mr. Sytin. “Consistent excellent customer sales and after-sales service relations are what our consumers can expect to experience from Chery Sta. Rosa. Our products are the best in their class,” added Ms. Montemayor.

Chery Auto Philippines currently carries four crossover models: the subcompact Tiggo 2 and Tiggo 5X, the all-new compact Tiggo 7 Pro, and the midsize seven-seater Tiggo 8. All have 1.5-liter DOHC 16-valve EFI VVT Euro 5-compliant engines (turbocharged for the Tiggo 7 and Tiggo 8) and have automatic transmissions on all models (MT available on the Tiggo 2 and Tiggo 5X). Prices range from P695,000 for the Chery Tiggo 2 to P1.28 million for the Chery Tiggo 8, with special financing promos (subject to bank approval) available.
