2020 Jeep Cherokee Summary

So, you’ve seen the mainstream mid-size SUV players, and you’re looking for something… a little different.

Maybe you’re even looking for something with some off-road ability, and that’s maybe caused you to steer away from segment heavyweights like the Hyundai Tucson, Toyota RAV4, or Mazda CX-5.

Am I right so far? Maybe you’re just curious to find out what one of Jeep’s main models offers in 2020. Either way, I spent a week in this top-spec Trailhawk to find out if it’s the semi-off-roader it looks to be, or if it stands a chance against the mainstream players.

2023 Mitsubishi Outlander Summary

Your family’s grown to the point where a five-seat SUV is fine… most of the time. But on the odd occasion some of the kids’ friends are tagging along or nan and pop are in the mix.

Two extra seats is the answer, but a full-blown three-row SUV, and the imposing size that usually comes with it, is a bit much.

Enter the mid-size Outlander LS Black Edition, positioned by Mitsubishi as a ‘5+2’ SUV rather than a full-time seven-seater, with the two rearmost seats designated for “occasional” use.

Does it have the practicality to pass the family test, and does the flexibility of an extra pair of chairs stack up? 

The Cleary family spent a week with this recently released edition to find out.
