Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Tucson than in the Jeep Cherokee. The Hyundai Tucson offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jeep Cherokee, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Tucson 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 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. When looking at overall length, the Hyundai Tucson takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jeep Cherokee.

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

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Hyundai Tucson will do just as well as the Jeep Cherokee, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Tucson has a lot less horsepower than the Jeep Cherokee.

Powertrain
The Hyundai Tucson has much lower torque than the Jeep Cherokee, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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. With the Hyundai Tucson, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage 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.
