Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda CR-V offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Jeep Cherokee, with comparable head- and legroom. The Jeep Cherokee offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-V, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The Honda CR-V requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Cherokee, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda CR-V will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jeep Cherokee. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda CR-V carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Cherokee.

Dimensions
The Honda CR-V is about the same width as the Jeep Cherokee. When looking at overall length, the Honda CR-V takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jeep Cherokee.

Drivetrain
The Honda CR-V has much lower torque than the Jeep Cherokee, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Honda CR-V has the same turning radius as the Jeep Cherokee, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Jeep Cherokee is clearly the choice over the Honda CR-V for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Honda CR-V has a lot less horsepower than the Jeep Cherokee.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Honda CR-V and the Jeep Cherokee. With the Honda CR-V, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Jeep Cherokee.

Warranty
The Honda CR-V comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jeep Cherokee.
