2015 Jeep Cherokee vs. 2015 Mazda CX-5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Jeep Cherokee offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Mazda CX-5, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Jeep Cherokee and the Mazda CX-5.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jeep Cherokee as you will with the Mazda CX-5, 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). Whether you pick the Jeep Cherokee or the Mazda CX-5, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Mazda CX-5.

Dimensions
The Jeep Cherokee is a little wider than the Mazda CX-5, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Jeep Cherokee takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mazda CX-5.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Jeep Cherokee doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mazda CX-5.

Handling
The Jeep Cherokee has a larger turning radius than the Mazda CX-5, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Jeep Cherokee will do just as well as the Mazda CX-5, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Cherokee greatly out-muscles the Mazda CX-5.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Cherokee and the Mazda CX-5. The Jeep Cherokee has less cargo space than the Mazda CX-5, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Jeep Cherokee comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mazda CX-5.
