2018 Subaru Forester VS 2018 Jeep Cherokee: Design Comparison

The classic, SUV-inspired shape of the 2018 Subaru Forester gives it a tall appearance and a roomy interior. Even though the 2018 Jeep Cherokee is longer and wider than the Subaru Forester, it's the small SUV from Subaru that gives you greater interior space inside. That extra volume translates to superior front seat head- and legroom (a godsend for particularly tall drivers) as well as greater cargo volume behind the rear seats. When it comes to comfort features, even the base 2018 Subaru Forester comes standard with air conditioning. You'll have to add an options package or trim level upgrade to get A/C in the Cherokee.

2018 Subaru Forester VS 2018 Jeep Cherokee: Performance Comparison

The engine in the 2018 Jeep Cherokee makes a little bit more horsepower than its counterpart in the 2018 Subaru Forester - but the Cherokee is also much heavier. As a result, you'll get similar acceleration from both these vehicles, but the new Subaru Forester will do it while sipping up to five fewer gallons of gas per mile. For handling and off-road ability, every Forester comes standard with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. You can upgrade the Jeep Cherokee to a 4x4 system, but we prefer the instant response and maximum wet weather traction of all-wheel drive. And with available features like X-MODE® and Hill Descent Control, the 2018 Subaru Forester can hold its own against the 2018 Jeep Cherokee when the road less traveled becomes no road at all.

2018 Subaru Forester VS 2018 Jeep Cherokee: Safety Comparison

The 2018 Subaru Forester performed so well in crash tests performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, they gave it the 2018 Top Safety Pick award. Not only did the 2018 Jeep Cherokee fail to earn this accolade, it earned a "Marginal" score in the driver's side small overlap front crash test - the second-worst score possible. For this reason, we recommend the new Subaru Forester for superior safety. You can even equip it with the Subaru EyeSight® suite of active driver assistance features, like dynamic radar cruise control and pre-collision braking, for an added layer of protection.
