The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
8.4
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 sharp-looking 2014 Subaru Forester gets a lot more comfortable inside, and offers some useful driving aids and safety electronics.
