This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Jeep Grand Cherokee (05-10) review.

Parkers overall rating: 2.5 out of 5 2.5

Untested by Euro NCAP, so there are no safety ratings available. However, the law of physics alone should fight Grand Cherokee’s corner in most collisions, as it’s solidly built – with side impact support beams - and weighs 3500kg. All models are fitted with an alarm and immobiliser, so security shouldn’t be a major concern, either.

Grand Cherokee is fairly competent on road, but the bulky body shape proves unpractical for frequent urban use, and the 4x4 is better suited to rough terrains, where it’s great for towing, load lugging, and off-road conquests. The 1136-litre luggage capacity is enormous – easily swallowing a family holiday’s worth of luggage – and can be further increased by folding the rear seats down, but load space can be eaten up by the storage of a spare wheel.
