The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

7.0

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. Call it fashionable or not; the 2013 Scion xB offers box-on-wheels versatility, easy maneuverability, and a strong list of features, all at a very affordable price. The rugged 2013 Subaru Forester handles well and copes confidently with any weather and road surface--and the XT turbo models are sporty--but its economy-car interior and sluggish automatic remain drawbacks.
