The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. If you do most of your driving in the city, the 2012 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is a pleasant, nimble runabout that offers strong value for the money.
