The 2016 Jeep Cherokee benefits from a new design on the inside as well as the outside, and it’s now a super spacious and comfortable, yet small SUV. Whether it’s for piling in the kids or hauling an inflatable kayak for a paddle downriver, the Cherokee has the space, versatility, and comfort to do so.
With all the seats up, the 2016 Jeep Cherokee is able to seat a family of five comfortably. Admittedly, it would be a tight squeeze trying to cram three adults in the back, but that’s expected from two-row five-seater vehicles. For two adults and three children, however, it’s the perfect fit. The seats in the back row are 60/40 split-folding, and are accompanied by a fold-flat front passenger seat as well. Not only does it open up to provide 54.9 cu-ft of storage space with the rear seats folded down, but it provides versatile storage thanks to the multiple configuration possibilities.
As far as comfort goes, the Cherokee has a plethora of upholstery materials that range from cloth, premium cloth, leather-trimmed cloth, and full leather trim. The material on the higher-trims is a supple Nappa leather, and it’s optional throughout some of the lower trims. Also, it’s available in various colors based on natural themes, such as the Grand Canyon or the magic of Morocco. The Morocco in particular is very inviting, all black – save for the ruby red accent stitching for just a touch of personality. Comfort features like heated front seats can be added for chilly mornings or cold winter months, and the available Alpine premium sound system will take you into a world of pure, musical bliss.
With the Cherokee’s upscale interior, even the small luxury-brand SUVs are up against some serious competition.
