The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Jeep Patriot is handsome and utilitarian and makes sense for urban-dwelling weekend-warrior types on a tight budget—but its lack of refinement could make it tough to live with. The 2013 Nissan Cube is boxy alright, but in a way that prioritizes style and fashion, not outright practicality.
