Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Cherokee than in the Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid. The Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Jeep Cherokee.

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 Jeep Cherokee will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid. 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 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Cherokee is much wider than the Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. 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 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Jeep Cherokee does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid.

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