2013 Jeep Patriot Safety

8.0
Safety

The Patriot hasn't been rated by the federal government since its ratings system changed (in 2011), and seeing that this is the last model year for this model in its current form, it's unlikely to get tested. But the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) named it a Top Safety Pick this past year, with top 'good' scores in all of its categories (though it hasn't of course yet been tested in the new small-overlap frontal test).

We've found outward visibility to be excellent in the Patriot—a function of its boxy body—and standard-feature content is quite good for the price, including off-road brake traction control and hill descent control for models with 4WD and for all models, electronic stability control with roll mitigation, front side airbags, and side-curtain bags.

If small and off-road-ready are priorities, while safety is as well, the 2013 Jeep Patriot remains a good pick.
