While the cabin of the 2009 Jeep Wrangler is still more utilitarian than luxurious, the Unlimited has far more space than do the two-door models.

The 2009 four-door Jeep Wrangler Unlimited offers additional space and comfort, but the two-door model Wrangler Jeep still provides little in the way of comfort in the backseat, mainly because its accessibility is difficult.

Some reviewers, however, think that the two-door version also limits the amount of storage space that would allow it to be a daily driver—hence the claim from Cars.com: "not what I would call a utility vehicle.” While front room is adequate in both versions, the 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited offers quite a bit of comfort and space in the backseat as well. With its 20 inches of additional length, the 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited model has an "even roomier passenger compartment and four-door access," J.D. Power notes.

ConsumerGuide finds the seats "firm and generally comfortable," although they note that legroom isn't as much as it would be in a larger vehicle—"the two-door's driver seat may not slide far enough back for those long of leg." Car and Driver says “the classic two-door model has room only for four, with little space for their chattels.”

The Jeep Wrangler’s rugged appeal means fake wood and leather are off the menu. Edmunds makes a point that the plastic material of the armrest is "hard and unwelcoming," but concedes the comfort is sacrificed in some ways for the rugged, outdoor appeal that is the Jeep Wrangler. “The layout, design and ergonomics deliver, and I was left wanting very little,” Cars.com counters. In terms of noise, though, Motor Trend observes that “though it's much quieter than Wranglers past, it's noisy.”

Conclusion

While the cabin of the 2009 Jeep Wrangler is still more utilitarian than luxurious, the Unlimited has far more space than do the two-door models.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
