Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 30 - 32 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

The Cherokee has a price tag of around £25,000, which isn’t cheap, but it is well equipped for the money and depreciation should be among the best 4x4s at this level. Fuel economy could be better and high emissions mean road tax will be costly, but Jeep servicing is fairly reasonable while insurance is group 13.

Although only a diesel version of the Cherokee is available in the UK, it isn’t a particularly green engine with higher CO2 emissions than its main rivals. With the manual gearbox it emits 222g/km of CO2 and returns 34mpg. Opt for the automatic and CO2 rises to 242g/km while economy drops to 31mpg.

Most of the mechanical and electronic parts are well proven and Jeep has a good reputation for overall reliability.
