2021 Jeep Cherokee vs. Its Competition

2021 Jeep Cherokee
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V are league-leaders in comfort, efficiency, and restraint among compact crossovers.

They’re the standard-bearers for good reasons.

The Hyundai Santa Fe is spacious and value packed.

The Forester approaches Jeep-like capability off-road, but we like its interior better.

The Ford Escape angles into on-road comfort hard this year; the Sport Hybrid is our pick for drivability and efficiency.
