2021 Honda CR-V vs 2021 Jeep Cherokee

Serving Groton, CT

When it comes to capable and comfortable modes of family transportation, nothing beats an SUV. Drivers certainly have plenty of options when shopping for a new one. Two popular options are the Honda CR-V and the Jeep Cherokee. While both have a lot to give, we think you will find that the CR-V is the better choice for a few reasons.

Fuel Efficiency

The CR-V is great for your daily commutes as well as your next road trip, thanks to its impressive fuel economy numbers. When you choose a front-wheel-drive model, you can expect to see 28 mpg in the city along with 34 mpg on the highway. The Cherokee, on the other hand, gives you only 22 mpg city and 31 mpg highway. Choosing the CR-V is something your wallet will thank you for down the road.

Cargo Space

If you regularly need a lot of room for groceries or gear, the 2021 CR-V is the obvious choice. Behind its backseat, there are 39.2 cubic feet. This is considerably larger than the 25.8 cubic feet in the back of the 2021 Cherokee. When the backseats are down, the CR-V dominates again, offering up 75.8 cubic feet than the Cherokee's 54.7.

Performance

All 2021 Honda CR-V models get their power from a turbo four-cylinder engine that creates 190-horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque. The base model for the Cherokee uses an inline-four-cylinder that makes 180-horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque. That extra horsepower and torque from the CR-V help give it more satisfying acceleration and an overall more exhilarating feel.
