TCC’s Bottom Line
Available equipment in the 2016 Jeep Patriot will take you where other small crossovers won't; but its dated cabin design keeps it from feeling as smart as it could be. The 2016 Jeep Renegade has something to please both off-roaders and commuters, but its performance can seem dull compared to its engaging styling. The 2016 Subaru Forester continues to be a good value and one of the best small SUVs you can buy, with superb all-weather capability, safety ratings, and versatility.
