60sec road test
Don't be confused by the name: this is a separate model from the Grand Cherokee tested elsewhere. It's effectively the replacement for the Compass and means the mid-sized premium SUV sector has some tough company again. For those Jeep roots mean that the 'Kee can reach parts that other 4x4s can't (new Disco Sport excepted). If off-roading is your thing, be sure to spec the Trailhawk version with its tougher styling, skid plates and locking rear diff to give you even more go-anywhere gumption. Just watch out for boot space; at 412 litres under the parcel shelf, you might feel the squeeze compared with bigger rivals.
