The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
One of the most improved crossovers, the 2012 Hyundai Tucson has size and value in its corner. The 2012 Jeep Patriot is a compelling choice for its versatile interior, maneuverability, and strong list of features—with just a bit of weekend-warrior ruggedness—but it's woefully short on refinement or sophistication.
