TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Jeep Patriot is a no-nonsense budget utility, with available equipment that can take you where most little crossovers won't. The 2014 Scion xB might not be as trendy -- or sensible -- as it tries to be, but it fits a lot of cabin space into a compact footprint. The sharp-looking 2014 Subaru Forester gets a lot more comfortable inside, and offers some useful driving aids and safety electronics.
