Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

It looks safe, and Jeep Cherokee safety has been proven in the Euro NCAP crash tests where it scored a maximum five stars. This Cherokee offers 30 safety and security features including traction and stability control, advanced multi-stage airbags, electronic roll mitigation (to prevent the car rolling over), side airbags, a tyre pressure monitoring system and a Thatcham Category 1 alarm with immobiliser.

There's a useful cargo area with lashing points on the side panels to help secure items along with a reversible carpet on the load floor. A 10cm deep waterproof storage bin beneath the lid can be used to keep muddy boots in while the 60/40 split rear seats fold down flat to create a large boot space. The rear seats also recline while the front passenger seat folds forward, increasing load space for long items.

Ground clearance is impressive at almost 7.5 inches (189mm) and the Cherokee will tow a maximum of 2800kg. A hill-start assist function is also fitted which can hold the car momentarily when pointing uphill to avoid rolling back - handy when towing.
