This Grand Cherokee is the best car Jeep has ever built. Well-built, handsome and great off-road, only vague handling lets it down.

This is certainly a decent interior when compared to Jeeps of old, although it’s still not up to the high standards set by its German and British rivals, the gulf that once existed is shrinking. Touches such as the chrome-ringed dials and leather-trimmed dashboard on top Overland models add a touch of luxury, but some of more minor details (such as the smaller switchgear and more hidden-away trim) detract from the overall feel. Only the Laredo trim gets cloth seats, with each subsequent trim level getting a better grade of leather. Every version also gets an 8.4-inch central touch screen and a customisable 7-inch TFT display that sits between the main instruments. It’s possible to use these to control most of the Jeep’s functions, and the graphics and interface are attractive, if not especially intuitive. There’s plenty of room in the front, too, with an excellent range of adjustment on both the driver’s seat and steering wheel. The only issue some people may find is a lack of space for the driver to rest their left foot, because the pedal for the foot-operated parking brake gets in the way - a throwback to a much older era of car design.
