MPG, running costs & CO2 Rating

2.5 out of 5

If you’re in the market for the most economical car you can buy, then you probably won’t be looking at a big, heavy SUV like this. However, the Cherokee isn't too bad when it comes to fuel economy and CO2 emissions, which will help keep running costs relatively low. Jeep also offers free servicing for the first three years, a five-year/75,000-mile warranty and five years of roadside assistance as part of its '5-3-5' deal.

Jeep Cherokee MPG & CO2

The 2.2-litre diesel is fitted with a nine-speed automatic gearbox as standard, aiding efficiency. All Cherokees with this engine have four-wheel drive as standard. It returns 46.3mpg, with CO2 emissions rated at 161g/km, meaning company-car buyers face a 37% BiK contribution.

All versions of the Cherokee will cost £140 a year in annual road tax. Be aware that the Overland models cost more than £40,000, so are liable for a £310 surcharge during years two to six of ownership, bringing your total tax bill in that period to £450. The other models will incur the same surcharge if you choose enough options to push their price over £40,000.

Warranty

Like all Jeeps, the Cherokee comes with a five-year/75,000-mile warranty, an upgrade to the old three-year/60,000-mile warranty that was offered until July 2018. It’s part of a campaign called ‘5-3-5’, so named because customers get a five-year warranty, a three-year servicing programme and five years of roadside assistance. This gives the Jeep’s warranty an edge over the three years offered for rivals from Volkswagen, Audi, BMW and Mercedes. Hyundai matches Jeep’s five-year warranty (but with no mileage cap) and Kia provides an industry-leading seven years of cover.

Servicing

Like most cars, the Jeep Cherokee needs servicing every year. Jeep’s dealer network isn’t the most comprehensive, but you can get a pre-paid ‘Easy Care’ service plan. This starts at £599 for three years’ servicing.
