Adult occupant

The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of both the driver and passenger. Jeep showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. In the side impact barrier test, the Cherokee scored maximum points with good protection of all body regions. In the more severe side impact pole test, protection of the chest was adequate and that of other body regions was good. The seats and head restraints provided marginal protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision.

Child occupant

The airbag for the front passenger seat cannot be disabled so a rearward-facing child restraint should not be used in that seating position. The labels warning of the dangers of doing so were not permanently attached to the sun visor, so did not meet Euro NCAP's requirements. All the types of child restraints for which the car is designed could be properly installed and accommodated in the vehicle.

Pedestrian

The bumper provided good protection to pedestrians' legs in all areas tested, and scored maximum points. However, the front edge of the bonnet showed poor levels of protection to the pelvis region in most test locations. The bonnet surface gave mixed results, with good and adequate performance in many areas and poor results primarily around the stiff windscreen pillars.

Safety assist

Electronic stability control is standard equipment on all Jeep Cherokees, and the system met Euro NCAP's test requirements. The car also has a standard-fit seatbelt reminder system covering the front and rear seats. A driver-set warning-only speed assistance system is standard and met the test requirements for systems of that type.

Applies to all Cherokees of the specification tested
