The interior of the 2009 Jeep Liberty is just fine for most needs. However, some SUVs have higher-quality interior materials, and car-based crossovers tend to be roomier, as their floors can be lower.
ConsumerGuide must employ editors with shorter legs and longer torsos, as they contend the interior had “fine legroom, but headroom is limited for tall occupants, despite a high build. The cabin feels narrow and snug overall, though Liberty's high-set seats provide a commanding view of the road.” Edmunds notes, “Compared to the outgoing Liberty, the '09 model has a wheelbase that's nearly 2 inches longer. All of that extra length has been given over to the rear-seat passengers, who badly needed it. The legroom is still tight, but being forced to sit in the back of a Liberty no longer violates the Geneva Conventions.”
