This mid-size crossover SUV has been delighting solo Derby, KS drivers and Hutchinson families alike for years and years, and the newest model year of the Cherokee is the best yet. Of course, we know that savvy shoppers from all over the El Dorado, KS are and beyond demand more than just our word on it so, to give you the details you demand, we've compared the 2018 Cherokee to one of its main rivals: the Honda HR-V.

In the details below, you'll see how the 2018 Cherokee compared when pitted head to head against the Honda HR-V, sure to show you just how amazing Jeep's offering truly is. With a wide assortment of trim levels, a number of 4x4 systems to help you get off the roads and into nature, a plethora of convenience and safety features like the Uconnect infotainment system and LaneSense Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist, and with muscular engine options hitting up to 295 lb-ft of torque when properly equipped, you'll never want the ride to end.

For now, let's take a look at how these two titans compare head to head:

The 2018 Jeep Cherokee vs. the 2018 Honda HR-V

  • The 2018 Jeep Cherokee's base engine provides 184 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque, easily outpacing the 2018 Honda HR-V's base engine at a meager 141 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of torque.
  • You'll get a standard 9-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters in the Cherokee, allowing you much more control and engagement on your drives than the HR-V's standard 6-speed manual transmission.
  • Despite all of that additional power and command, the Jeep Cherokee's combined EPA-estimated fuel economy sits at 25 miles per gallon, which is quite competitive with the HR-V's combined EPA-estimated fuel economy of 28 miles per gallon. You'll get much more power in the Cherokee with barely a hit to your efficiency!
  • Off-roading is no problem in the Cherokee thanks to an 8.2-inch ground clearance; the Honda HR-V's lower ground clearance of 6.7 inches may leave you reconsidering some obstacles in your path.
  • It's a small difference, but the Cherokee's standard cargo space in the back is just slightly larger than the Honda HR-V's cargo space, allowing you to bring just a bit more along when the need arises.
  • The base Cherokee model comes with the offer of optional heated front seats as well as optional parking assistance technology; you'll have to go to higher trim levels on the HR-V to find these available features.
  • Your passengers will love how the Cherokee provides more rear head, leg, and shoulder room than the back seats of the HR-V, making those long road trips much more comfortable.
  • Jeep offers a 5-year/60,000-mile Roadside Assistance warranty; Honda's Roadside Assistance warranty of just 3-years/36,000-miles could easily leave you high and dry on the side of the road long before Jeep's assistance would.
  • Last but certainly not least, you'll find the Cherokee's 10 exterior color options offer a wide range of colorful and subtle choices for your particular sense of style; the HR-V only provides 4 exterior colors, only one of which isn't monochrome.
