To stand out in the crowded crossover segment, a vehicle needs to supply plenty of cost-saving fuel economy and a comfortable interior. When it comes to these areas, the 2017 Honda CR-V and the 2017 Jeep Cherokee don’t quite match up. To learn more about the differences between these two vehicles, check out this comparison today.

Fuel Economy

The crossover with better efficiency can save you big money over the life of the vehicle. Let’s take a look at the fuel economy of each model’s base trim:

  • The 2017 CR-V reaches 26 mpg city/32 mpg highway* with a continuously variable transmission and front-wheel drive.

  • The 2017 Cherokee only delivers 21 mpg city/30 mpg highway with a nine-speed automatic and front-wheel drive.

That disparity might be understandable if the Cherokee offered more power, but that’s not the case. Both vehicles reach 184 hp, but the CR-V supplies 180 lb-ft of torque. The Cherokee can only manage 171 lb-ft of torque. You’ll appreciate that extra acceleration when you’re getting on Interstate 57 near Frankfort.

Interior Comfort

While crossovers generally offer less interior room than a full-size SUV, that doesn’t mean you and your passengers should be cramped. The CR-V delivers more room than the Cherokee in the following areas:

  • Front Head Room

  • Front Leg Room

  • Front Hip Room

  • Front Shoulder Room

  • Rear Head Room

  • Rear Leg Room

  • Rear Shoulder Room

Planning on taking a long road trip this summer? That extra comfort will come in handy. In addition, the CR-V includes a long list of interior features throughout its four distinct trim levels.
