As a compact SUV, the Jeep Cherokee has some extremely stiff competition. There are currently 18 vehicles in our compact SUV rankings, and the top performers are among some of the best-selling vehicles on the road.

The top vehicles in this segment include the Honda CR-V (pictured top), Mazda CX-5 (pictured right), GMC Terrain (pictured left), Hyundai Tucson, Ford Escape, and Kia Sportage.

The Honda CR-V has 75.8 cubic feet of cargo space, which is among the best in the class. It blows away the Cherokee’s 54.9 cubic feet of cargo space. The CR-V also has a high-quality cabin, a comfortable ride, and impressive crash test scores.

Another top competitor is the Mazda CX-5. It features a smooth ride, complemented by an upscale cabin with roomy, comfortable seats. The CX-5 corners well and is fun to drive for an SUV.

The GMC Terrain offers as much as 39 mpg on the highway when you select the turbodiesel engine. The cabin is high quality and features two rows of spacious seats.
