2014 Mazda CX-5 vs. 2014 Jeep Cherokee Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Mazda CX-5 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Jeep Cherokee, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Mazda CX-5 and the Jeep Cherokee.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mazda CX-5 as you will with the Jeep Cherokee, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Mazda CX-5 or the Jeep Cherokee, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mazda CX-5 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Cherokee.

Dimensions
The Mazda CX-5 is a little narrower than the Jeep Cherokee, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Mazda CX-5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jeep Cherokee.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Mazda CX-5 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Jeep Cherokee.

Handling
The Mazda CX-5 has a smaller turning radius than the Jeep Cherokee, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Mazda CX-5 will do just as well as the Jeep Cherokee, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Mazda CX-5 has a lot less horsepower than the Jeep Cherokee.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Mazda CX-5 and the Jeep Cherokee. The Mazda CX-5 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Jeep Cherokee.

Warranty
The Mazda CX-5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jeep Cherokee.
