Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Jeep Cherokee still antes up considerable trail-riding talent, but other crossover SUVs do a better job of daily driving.
The name is one of the oldest applied to a modern-day SUV, but the 2017 Jeep Cherokee is no Conestoga wagon. It's a thoroughly modern family wagon, recast from its hardcore sport-utility roots into something much broader, more capable in all sorts of conditions.

Pros
Family-sized interior (albeit with no third row)
Daring exterior
Front seat comfort
Quick enough with the base engine
Strong active-safety set

Cons
Exterior styling doesn't feel fully committed-to
Numb steering
Gas mileage okay but not excellent
Transmission woes come and go

The 2017 Jeep Cherokee ranks 13 out of 18 Compact SUVs. The 2017 Jeep Cherokee combines an upscale and spacious cabin with good off-road capability. Although you can find a smoother ride and larger cabin in competitors like the Honda CR-V or Ford Escape, the Cherokee’s off-road capability means it strikes a pretty rare balance in this class.

Pros
Premium-quality cabin
Spacious and comfortable seating
Great off-road capability with 4WD option

Cons
Sluggish base engine
Below-average fuel economy
Small cargo space

By:

The 2017 Cherokee gets only minor equipment revisions, including standard xenon headlights on every trim but the base Sport. This is also the first full year for the top-of-the-line Overland trim that was introduced in mid-2016.

Pros
Available V6 engine provides smooth and assertive power
Absorbent suspension smooths out rough surfaces
Capable and user-friendly 8.4-inch touchscreen on many models
Trailhawk offers unique off-road capability for a small crossover.

Cons
Sluggish acceleration with four-cylinder engine
Less cargo capacity than other small crossovers.

The Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace looks to be better aligned with the demands of American buyers than its pricey, cramped predecessor.

Pros
More aligned with buyer tastes?
Clean styling inside and out
High-tech dashboard
Lots of available safety tech

Cons
Will it be underpowered?
Awfully small for a three-row crossover
Third row required for FWD
Looks are too conservative for some

The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan ranked #8 in Compact SUVs. Currently the Volkswagen Tiguan has a score of 8.2 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 26 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Lots of user-friendly tech features
Good cargo space
Smooth ride
Roomy first- and second-row seats

Cons
Postage-stamp third row
Unimpressive engine
Subpar fuel economy

By: 
usnews.com

The Volkswagen Tiguan is fully redesigned for 2018. Compared to its predecessor, it offers more legroom, more cargo space and a standard third row.

PROS
Lots of space for passengers and cargo
Third-row seating can be useful in a pinch
Now offers comprehensive driver safety features
Revised tech interface is sharp, intuitive and quick to respond

CONS
Optional larger wheels make for a bumpy ride
Still ranks low in fuel economy, despite revised engine
