Interior & comfort Rating

3.0 out of 5

Despite the Cherokee’s rugged off-road abilities, its interior design isn't too utilitarian. There's plenty of standard equipment, a comfortable driving position and plenty of space for occupants.

Jeep Cherokee dashboard

In the main, the Cherokee’s dashboard is pretty well laid-out, with all models getting a touchscreen infotainment screen. There are also splashes of chrome around the cabin and the materials used feel of decent quality, but not quite up there with what’s found in rivals like the Mercedes GLC, Audi Q5 and the BMW X3. There are too many hard, scratchy plastics on show for that, and it's a shame the Cherokee doesn't have some of the interior flair found in the new Jeep Wrangler.

Some of the switchgear is frustratingly muddled, with the climate controls being particularly oddly placed. Everything else is pretty well set out, however: the Uconnect touchscreen infotainment system is relatively easy to use, while the instrument dials are clear and easy to read as well.

Equipment

You get a pretty decent amount of standard equipment with the Cherokee, even on the entry-level model. Trim levels are Sport, Longitude, Limited and Overland, while a Trailhawk model with extra off-roading hardware is due in 2019. Every version gets up-to-date safety features like autonomous emergency braking and lane-departure warning. The Longitude grade has all the kit most will ever need and Overland adds desirable luxuries like Nappa leather upholstery and an expansive panoramic sunroof.

Options

As you get so much equipment as standard, there aren’t many options we’d consider ‘must haves’. You can upgrade the entry-level Sport model with sat nav and a larger infotainment screen, but we’d recommend just going for Longitude trim if you really need these features.
