This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Jeep Cherokee (08-10) review.

Parkers overall rating: 2.5 out of 5 2.5

The Cherokee was awarded four stars out of five in Euro NCAP crash tests in 2003 thanks to the addition of a seatbelt reminder. All models get driver, passenger and side airbags, while a tyre pressure monitor was fitted to later models. There's also an electronic stability programme that brakes individual wheels and can cut engine power to help correct the car's line during a skid.

The Cherokee has far more luggage space than its predecessor, partly as a result of the spare wheel being moved outside to hang on the tailgate, and the rear seat splits as well as folds. The rear window can be opened independently of the tailgate which is useful in tight multi-storey car parks, plus the glove compartment is a decent size and cup holders are standard.
