The 2016 Jeep Cherokee tries to contend with the 2016 Honda CR-V when it comes to power, and though it comes close, it just cannot match the torque of the CR-V. Not only is the Cherokee’s power underwhelming, their 9-speed automatic transmission still cannot match the adaptability of a Honda Continuously Variable Transmission. You can’t beat the smooth, powerful ride of a CR-V.

Once again, the 2016 Honda CR-V proves that you can get more for less. Even with the power sacrifices that the 2016 Jeep Cherokee makes, it still cannot give you the fuel efficiency that a Honda CR-V is capable of. Let this crossover save you money in the city and out on the highway.

The 2016 Honda CR-V beats out the 2016 Jeep Cherokee with a higher range and a smaller gas tank. This means you can expect to stop at the pumps less frequently, fill it up with less gas, and go farther. That’s a pretty great deal, and with much more cargo capacity you can haul more in your Honda CR-V too.

2016 Honda CR-V is the clear winner!

The 2016 Honda CR-V is a great all around vehicle. It has style, it has reliability, and it destroys the 2016 Jeep Cherokee in all categories. The CR-V has more power, more torque, better fuel economy across the board, better range, better cargo capacity, and a rearview camera. The Jeep Cherokee just doesn’t have what it takes to compete with the Honda CR-V.
