2016 Cherokee vs. 2016 Honda CR-V in San Antonio
It’s time for another Fernandez Honda comparison and you’re in luck because today we’re revealing our findings about two of the most popular SUVs around town, the 2016 Cherokee and the 2016 Honda CR-V in San Antonio! SUVs are a summer favorite to take road trips in, and we’re here to not only get you from point A to point B, but to get you there in the best way possible! Let’s explore how they measure up.
With safety being the most important quality (even more so if you have precious cargo on board) the CR-V is a no-brainer. Compared to the Jeep Cherokee that has a 4-star safety rating, the CR-V has an all-around perfect rating of 5-stars for the driver in the NHTSA crash safety test. Additionally, in another test put on by the IIHS 40 mph crash test (a significantly tougher test) the CR-V was evaluated as “Good” while the Jeep only came out as “Marginal.” There’s no arguing that the CR-V is overall safer than the Cherokee!
Safety ratings are of the upmost importance, but you also want to consider reliability, especially if you’re a person that doesn’t buy vehicles regularly. Consumer Reports estimated that the CR-V’s reliability will be 123% better than the Cherokee’s V6 and 212% better than the Cherokee’s 4 cylinder. That’s pretty substantial, if you ask us! No one wants the to spend the time or money in an unreliable car. J.D. Power and Assoc. studied new car owners in 2015 and concluded that that Honda ranks 14th in initial quality, and Jeep was ranked 29th, way below industry average.
An SUV wouldn’t be an SUV with out all of the generous space and high tech features. The CR-V’s cargo space is incredible, measuring 35.2 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seat up. The Cherokee on the other hand only has 24.6 cubic feet of space. That next road trip in the CR-V will be much roomier! Other helpful perks in the CR-V are the speed-sensitive variable assist power steering, the automatic folding seats for optimal convenience. Who says SUVs can’t be luxurious? We sure don’t!
Both are all-star SUVs, but only one has our vote and that would be the Honda CR-V in San Antonio! Space, comfort, style… you have it all in this Honda! Stop by Fernandez Honda today to see how the new CR-V can improve your life. Until then, check out your CR-V options online!
