PROS

Strong off-road ability, good standard equipment levels, decent diesel models

CONS

Thirsty petrol engines, dated and low-rent interior, not particularly spacious, lacks sophistication on road

Verdict

The 2001 Cherokee was a departure from the endearingly boxy design of its predecessor - so much that the company had to give it a different name, Jeep Liberty, in North America. The rounded styling at the front gives the Cherokee a less rugged look than before, but it's certainly as capable an off-road tool as ever. Marketed as a rival to top-end first-generation Land Rover Freelanders and Toyota RAV4s, the Cherokee feels a rather less sophisticated performer, being noisy, thirsty and feeling top heavy.

It also lacks the interior space of cars like the Honda CR-V and Nissan X-Trail while few of the engines manage to return acceptable economy.
