2018 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid vs. 2018 Jeep Cherokee

Two of the most desirable brands for car purchasers in Milford Connecticut include Toyota and Jeep. It is reasonable to get stuck, when you have to choose between the 2018 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid and the 2018 Jeep Renegade. On comparing both the models, you will come to know why Toyota is a preferred choice.

Design & Style

Taking exteriors into account, both the models are equally good with a classy look. However, the interiors make all the difference. The 2018 Jeep Cherokee is a 5-seater with 2 rows of supportive, comfortable cloth seats, with plenty of space in the front row. There is sufficient legroom in the rear seats, although headroom is a little tight. You will find plenty of soft-touch surfaces, but also a few hard plastic.

The 2018 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, on the other hand, is worth the money with exceptional interiors on offer. For a compact SUV, it has adequate cargo capacity, providing enough room for luggage. The cabin is spacious, with easy-to-use controls and great outward visibility.

Technology & Safety

Separating the best from the rest, safety and technology features play a defining role. The standard infotainment system of Jeep Cherokee comes with 7-inch responsive touch-screen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, which can be upgraded. Every base model has parking sensors and a rearview camera. Advanced safety features include blind spot monitoring, forward collision warning, rain-sensing windshield wipers, rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning, automatic braking and adaptive cruise control.

The 2018 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid gives a tough competition to its equals, with an advanced infotainment system, equipped with smartphone integration. The standard version itself has advanced safety features, and there is no need to shell out extra cash, as in case of Jeep Cherokee.


If there is one thing that should be carefully analyzed about a vehicle, it has to be its performance.  The 2018 Jeep Cherokee comes with a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces an output of 180 HP. The base engine delivers a mileage of 31 mpg on the highway and 22 mpg in the city. The RAV4 Hybrid, on the other hand comes with a superior 4-cylinder 2.5 liter engine, generating an output of 194 HP.

The Bottom Line

By now, it must be quite clear that the performance, technology and design of Toyota RAV4 Hybrid is on top gear, in comparison to Jeep Cherokee. It’s not just the built, but also the features that give it an upper hand. Cherokee may have its own set of attributes, but RAV4 Hybrid is worth the money for the given price point.
