Jeep Cherokee Diesel Seen as an Unusual Alternative to the Nissan Qashqai and VW Tiguan

This is one of the first video reviews of the Jeep Cherokee coming from Europe and certainly the first of a diesel-powered model. Auto Express tested a Cherokee fitted with the most powerful diesel engine available, a 2.0-liter unit producing 170PS (168hp) – the Cherokee’s European lineup also includes a 140PS (138hp) 2.0-liter unit.

Mated to a smooth-shifting 9-speed automatic gearbox, the diesel engine is described as powerful and torquey enough, but not as refined as one would expect – the reviewer says the engine sounds quite rough towards the top of the rev range.

The ride is seen as nice and soft, but the reverse of the medal is that handling suffers from body roll in corners.

The conclusion is that the Jeep Cherokee is not best in class in Europe, but it can represent an alternative to the Nissan Qashqai and VW Tiguan, which speaks volumes about Jeep’s progress from the previous Cherokee (known as the Liberty in the United States).
