THE Chero­kee has never been a lead­ing light in the com­pact SUV class, mainly be­cause its high prices count against it, and it has strug­gled to stand out against a raft of hugely ta­lented ri­vals.

How­ever, a clever de­cou­pling 4WD sys­tem helps it de­liver claimed av­er­age econ­omy of more than 50mpg.

The Trail­hawk ver­sion adds plenty of bits for off-road fans, as well as a £42k price tag. Price range: £32,685-£42,550 Our pick: 2.0 Mul­ti­jet 140 Lon­gi­tude Plus (£32,685) En­gine: 2.0-litre 4cyl diesel, 138bhp Trans­mis­sion: 6-spd man­ual, per­ma­nent 4WD Top speed: 117mph Econ­omy: 50.4mpg CO2: 147g/km
