Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jeep Cherokee as you will with the Mazda CX-5, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). The Jeep Cherokee is somewhat more expensive than the Mazda CX-5. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Jeep Cherokee is much higher than that for the Mazda CX-5.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Jeep Cherokee will do just as well as the Mazda CX-5, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Cherokee greatly out-muscles the Mazda CX-5.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Cherokee and the Mazda CX-5.

Warranty
The Jeep Cherokee comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mazda CX-5.
