3.5 out of 5 3.5

This Jeep Cherokee goes back to the familiar squared-off and rugged styling that first made the model popular in the UK in the 1990s. However inside it's far more upmarket than before and comes very well equipped too with luxuries such as heated leather seats as standard. But that's not to say the Cherokee has gone soft - true to Jeep's heritage it is near unstoppable off road and comes with a sophisticated four-wheel drive system.

It's not bad on tarmac either, but doesn't feel as sharp as many road-biased 4x4 rivals such as the Ford Kuga and Honda CR-V. The line-up is simple with just a single trim level and one engine choice, a strong CRD diesel.
