SAFETY | 8 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

'Good' frontal offset, 'good' side impact, 'good' roof, Top Safety Pick
IIHS

Not yet rated
NHTSA




Safety remains a strength for the Patriot; while it hasn't been rated by the federal government since the ratings system changed last year, it's again a Top Safety Pick for 2012. All the expected safety features are standard, too, and the boxy body brings good outward visibility.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awards the Patriot with 'good' scores in frontal and side tests. Roof strength testing, which the IIHS has started to conduct over the past year, also yields a result of 'good.'

Overall, the list of standard safety features in the Patriot is particularly strong for the price; standard items include electronic stability control with roll mitigation, front side airbags, and side-curtain bags. Models with four-wheel drive add off-road brake traction control and hill descent control.

 

Conclusion

Those seeking a compact, off-road-capable vehicle that's also safe should consider the 2012 Jeep Patriot.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
