When it comes to compact SUVs, today's shoppers have no shortage of options. With all those small and mighty wagons fighting for your attention, how do you find the standout in the crowd? 

Two of the top competitors in this market right now are the highly-rated Honda CR-V and the stunning new 2020 Jeep Cherokee. While both vehicles have their advantages, the Jeep Cherokee outperforms the CR-V in the areas that matter the most. 

Let's take a closer look at the head-to-head matchup between the 2020 Jeep Cherokee and the 2020 Honda CR-V. To experience the new Cherokee in person, don't hesitate to reach out to the team at Woody Folsom CDJR of Vidalia.


Compact SUV Performance & Towing Capacity: Cherokee vs CR-V

Just because you're looking for a compact SUV doesn't mean you shouldn't expect stellar performance. While the CR-V offers the same engine across all trims, the Cherokee opens the door to more: 

  • The available 2.0L Turbo Engine provides an exceptional 270 HP, 295 lb.-ft. of torque, and up to 31 MPG on the highway. 
  • The available 3.2L Pentastar V6 delivers a best-in-class max towing capacity of 4,500 pounds while still achieving up to 29 MPG on the highway. 
Simply put, the Cherokee allows you to choose the best engine based on your unique needs. In the end, 2020 Honda CR-V's 190-HP and 1,500-lb towing capacity doesn't compare.

Off-Road Capabilities: 2020 Jeep Cherokee vs 2020 Honda CR-V

That additional power in the Jeep Cherokee isn't the only thing that makes it the more dominant off-road vehicle. Boasting the highly-coveted Trail Rated badge, the 2020 Cherokee features enhanced maneuverability, traction, articulation capabilities, water fording, and ground clearance - all optimized to go where other compact SUVs wouldn't dare. 

On the other hand, the Honda CR-V is less designed to venture off-road and solely designed for the pavement. It does offer an available Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System, but this system is more suitable for wet streets than it is for rugged terrain. 

With the Cherokee, you can choose from three different 4X4 systems, so you have the traction you need for a wide range of conditions. The Cherokee also offers the Selec-Terrain Traction Management System, which allows you to choose from different driving modes based on your needs.

Interior Technology: 2020 Honda CR-V vs 2020 Jeep Cherokee

Although both crossovers feature a range of technology, the Jeep Cherokee has a more connected, progressive interior. From the moment you enter the Cherokee, you'll be surrounded by state-of-the-art infotainment options, like the Uconnect multimedia system presented on a large 7-inch display, standard on the Cherokee. 

Meanwhile, the CR-V offers only a 5-inch LCD display and Bluetooth connectivity. Also, to equip your CR-V with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and even a touchscreen, you'll have to open your wallet wider and upgrade to a higher trim.
