The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Honda Element is a great choice for drivers who need lots of storage room and a spill-proof interior. The 2010 Jeep Patriot is unlike any other vehicle on the market, with good safety, a spacious interior, and city-friendly maneuverability, plus just enough Jeep-ness for weekend campers.
