Verdict

Final thoughts and pick of the range

More off-roadery than many in this sector, but sadly lacking any other USP against some talented rivals

This is not a class where mediocrity is anywhere near good enough. And sadly that’s where the Cherokee sits – it’s not disgraceful in any area, but it also doesn’t excel anywhere. The engine is fine, the chassis is OK, the interior room is adequate, the build quality fair. Notice what we’re missing there? Adjectives like brilliant, superb, class-leading.

If the Cherokee was any of those, or if it was priced more competitively against rivals – we suspect it will be dangerously close to excellent cars like the XC60 – then it’d be a more compelling car. As it is, it falls short. Jeep can build better cars, it’s just that the Cherokee isn’t one of them.
