2016 Honda CR-V vs. 2017 Jeep Cherokee Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Cherokee than in the Honda CR-V, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Jeep Cherokee offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-V, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda CR-V as you will with the Jeep Cherokee, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda CR-V will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jeep Cherokee. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda CR-V carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Cherokee.

Dimensions
Since the Honda CR-V is much slimmer than the Jeep Cherokee, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Honda CR-V takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jeep Cherokee.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Honda CR-V transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Jeep Cherokee.

Handling
The Honda CR-V has the same turning radius as the Jeep Cherokee, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Jeep Cherokee is clearly the choice over the Honda CR-V for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Honda CR-V has a lot less horsepower than the Jeep Cherokee.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Honda CR-V and the Jeep Cherokee. The Honda CR-V has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Jeep Cherokee.

Warranty
The Honda CR-V comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jeep Cherokee.
