The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
7.8
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. Trendy or odd, the Scion xB jams plenty of space and versatility into its compact footprint.
