2018 Hyundai Tucson vs. 2018 Jeep Cherokee

If you are looking for a safe and reliable car with great warranty and popular features, you should consider the 2018 Hyundai Tucson. When looking for a vehicle in the compact SUV class, the Hyundai Tucson has other competitors like the Jeep Cherokee which offers almost similar features as the Tucson. However, the 2018 Hyundai Tucson is ranked number 3 in compact SUVs while the Cherokee is ranked 12th. Although in the same class, the Hyundai Tucson is the better choice since it has a number of optional and standard features that make it stand out. Let’s compare these two compact SUVs to see why the Tucson emerges at the top.

Design & Style

Anyone looking for a roomy vehicle, both the 2018 Hyundai Tucson and 2018 Jeep Cherokee would be a good choice. Both these vehicles have appealing design and features for anyone looking for a luxurious car. The Tucson has a quiet and comfortable cabin with plenty of front and rear space. On the other hand, the Cherokee also offers comfortable accommodations to passengers, but the cargo capacity is smaller compared to the Tucson. The 2018 Tucson has easy-to-use controls and a straightforward dashboard layout which makes it easy for drivers to access infotainment features easily while driving.

Technology & Safety

When it comes to safety, the 2018 Hyundai Tucson has been awarded a 5 star safety rating by the NHTSA while its counterpart the Cherokee only received 4 stars. Both vehicles have good IIHS safety ratings for moderate overlap front tests, side impact tests, rear crash protection, and roof strength tests. However, when it came to moderate overlap front tests, only the 2018 Hyundai Tucson got good ratings while the Cherokee was rated marginal.


The 2018 Tucson comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission. According to EPA, Tucson earns more mpg on the highway and in the city which is better than its rival estimates. Tucson’s turbocharged engine provides more power and acceleration than the base engine. On the other hand, the 2018 Jeep Cherokee is heavier than the 2018 Hyundai Tucson meaning that it takes time for Cherokee’s engine to get up to speed. The Tucson has better fuel economy than the Cherokee which requires a higher grade of gasoline to reach the desired mpg.

The Bottom Line

From the above information, it is clear that the 2018 Hyundai Tucson is a better choice between the two compact SUVs. The Tucson is not only recommended for customers looking for a family car, but it can also be used by any modern driver looking for a roomier, luxurious vehicle. The Tucson is unbeatable when it comes to pricing and offers more value to drivers than any other car in its class.
