2016 Hyundai Tucson vs. 2015 Jeep Cherokee Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Hyundai Tucson than the Jeep Cherokee. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Hyundai Tucson and the Jeep Cherokee.

Convenience
The Hyundai Tucson requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Cherokee, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Hyundai Tucson 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 Hyundai Tucson carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Cherokee.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Tucson is about the same width as the Jeep Cherokee. The Hyundai Tucson is slightly shorter than the Jeep Cherokee, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Hyundai Tucson transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Jeep Cherokee.

Handling
The Hyundai Tucson has a smaller turning radius than the Jeep Cherokee, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Jeep Cherokee is clearly the choice over the Hyundai Tucson for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Tucson 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 Hyundai Tucson and the Jeep Cherokee. The Hyundai Tucson has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Jeep Cherokee.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Tucson than that of the Jeep Cherokee.
