The 2015 Honda CR-V vs. the 2015 Jeep Cherokee

2015 Honda CR-V

Are you shopping for a versatile, fuel-efficient, affordable SUV? We suggest you take a look at the 2015 Honda CR-V here at Community Honda of Orland Park. The new CR-V, currently featured in our Frankfort, IL area Honda showroom, has been redesigned for 2015 and is better than ever. There just aren’t many other SUVs out there that can match up to the CR-V. A worthy contender, however, might just be the 2015 Jeep Cherokee. Let’s take a look at how these two vehicles stack up!

More Power, Better MPG

Like the 2015 Honda CR-V, the 2015 Jeep Cherokee received a makeover for 2015, and both vehicles are available with either two-wheel or all-wheel drive. Both are also powered by a 2.4L four-cylinder engine; still, the CR-V engine delivers 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque compared to the 184 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque put out by the Cherokee.

If you’re looking for excellent fuel economy – and who isn’t – then you’re going to want the Honda CR-V, which offers an impressive EPA estimated 27 mpg city and 34 mpg highway* on the two-wheel drive automatic model. The Jeep Cherokee, on the other hand, is rated at 22 mpg city and 31 mpg highway.

Loaded with Standard Features

The 2015 Honda CR-V comes with a wide variety of comfort, convenience, and tech features, several of which are either not available or are options that you’ll have to pay extra for with the 2015 Jeep Cherokee. Some of the standard CR-V features that you won’t find with the Cherokee include:

  • A rearview camera

  • A CD player

  • An MP3 player

  • A stereo anti-theft system


In the NHTSA crash tests the 2015 Honda CR-V scored an overall five-star rating, the highest possible. The 2015 Jeep Cherokee, meanwhile earned four stars.


It’s pretty clear why the 2015 Honda CR-V was voted Motor Trend Sport/Utility of the Year, it’s just a winning all around vehicle. Best of all, it is priced just right. Comparably equipped, the CR-V has a price tag of $24,200, while the 2015 Jeep Cherokee will cost you $24,580.

The Honda Fit is Named a 2015 Automobile Magazine All-Star

2015 Honda Fit

2015 Honda Fit

The 2015 Honda Fit is all-new for this year, and it’s been named a 2015 Automobile Magazine All-Star. The judges and editors heaped on as much praise as could fit in the spacious cargo area of the little hatchback. Maybe the most impressive thing about the Honda Fit is the fact that it landed on a list that included vehicles like the 2015 Lamborghini Huracan, which alone costs $279,345. For reference, a totally loaded Honda Fit EX – the top level trim – costs only $18,225 out the door.

The Fit is an Automobile Magazine All-Star

Even Automobile Magazine called the 2015 Honda Fit “a case of reverse sticker shock.” That description makes sense since Automobile Magazine also called it one of the “world’s most remarkable automobiles,” and it costs less than one hundredth of the price of some other models on this impressive list.

Arthur St. Antoine of Automobile Magazine said that “to build an automobile this good for $25,000 would be an achievement. That Honda has done it at $18,000 makes the Fit a shining All-Star.”

But before you get the impression that the Honda Fit is just an incredible value – which it is – you should also be aware that it’s an incredible car. In fact, Automobile judges found it one of the most fun cars to drive in the test. Joey Capparella said, “Man, is it fun to toss into a corner and downshift with this row-your-own gearbox. And there’s usable power in all six gears.”

The Honda Fit is a car for everyone. Not only does it have fun-to-drive dynamics, an easy-to-swallow price, and plenty of high tech features, but the Fit is also a leader when it comes to fuel economy. It earns an EPA estimate of up to 41 mpg on the highway*. Plus, the Fit has as much cargo space as many compact crossovers on the market with up to 52.7 cubic feet with the Magic Seats folded down.

Capparella went on to say, “I recommend the Fit to nearly everyone who asks me for car advice.”
