2016 Jeep Cherokee vs. 2016 Hyundai Tucson Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Jeep Cherokee offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Hyundai Tucson. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Jeep Cherokee and the Hyundai Tucson.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jeep Cherokee as you will with the Hyundai Tucson, 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). The Jeep Cherokee is somewhat more expensive than the Hyundai Tucson. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Jeep Cherokee is much higher than that for the Hyundai Tucson.

Dimensions
The Jeep Cherokee is about the same width as the Hyundai Tucson. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Jeep Cherokee, which is slightly longer than the Hyundai Tucson.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Jeep Cherokee doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Tucson.

Handling
The Jeep Cherokee has a larger turning radius than the Hyundai Tucson, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Jeep Cherokee is clearly the choice over the Hyundai Tucson for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Cherokee greatly out-muscles the Hyundai Tucson.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Cherokee and the Hyundai Tucson. The Jeep Cherokee has less cargo space than the Hyundai Tucson, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Jeep Cherokee is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Tucson.
