The Jeep Cherokee lands right in the heart of the compact crossover segment, occupied by strong-sellers like the Toyota RAV4, Subaru Forester, Honda CR-V, and Hyundai Santa Fe.
The Honda CR-V is the one that's the best pick for pragmatists; it has great utility and space, and fits the bill for those who don't want a minivan.
The Subaru Forester is roomy and comfortable yet surprisingly able on the trail, eschewing all the optional off-road packages for a single X-mode button intended for the tough stuff.
The Ford Escape goes sporty in many respects, with a cabin design that sacrifices some space, as well as zippy handling and an all-4-cylinder engine cast.
The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is refined and economical and has seating for five.
The Toyota RAV4 has a smarter layout and a fresher look than before, and has a new hybrid version with excellent fuel economy.
