The Patriot has a boxy exterior, and that translates to a roomy, versatile interior; but the interior can't shake a cut-rate ambiance.

Expert Quotes:

Where the Patriot falls flat is in interior quality, from the noise to the materials quality.
Cars.com

Hard plastic surfaces aren't the most inviting but they are easy to clean, which is one benefit of the Patriot's utilitarian cabin.
Kelley Blue Book

the ride was comfortable, but some wind and road noise came through
Motor Trend



While the details and materials are nothing to speak fondly of, nothing much has changed about the interior packaging, and that's yet another good thing.

The Patriot's Achilles' Heel—which some will find hard to accept—is the amount of noise and vibration that enters the cabin, as well as the hard, hollow plastic panels that line the cabin. Chrysler has in recent model years added a little more noise insulation, a padded armrest, and some bright trim rings to the climate-control knobs, but that wasn't enough to much improve the aura of econo-car cheapness that pervades this cabin.

The boxy, trim, bold look yields a tremendously useful interior, with good cargo space, and rear seatbacks that flip forward easily to expand space. There's good passenger space for four, and the tall roofline makes entry and exit easy. You could potentially wedge a third into the middle position in back, but you'll be reminded that this is a compact vehicle. Seating comfort is lackluster, with somewhat unsupportive front seats and rather stuff, unpadded back-seat accommodations.

We’ve found entry and exit very easy, thanks to the tall roofline, with plenty of headroom front and back—although the seating position is a little lower than you might imagine.

 

Conclusion

The Patriot has a boxy exterior, and that translates to a roomy, versatile interior; but the interior can't shake a cut-rate ambiance.

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.
