It’s one of the few to have a true off-road package, with low range, skid plates, and other Wrangler-like upgrades.
The Patriot is most like its Jeep Compass sibling, but favors a more macho look and slightly less content that give it a lower price.
The Ford Escape is far more sophisticated, with carlike ride and handling.
The Subaru Forester is also relatively new, having made big gains in refinement and interior space.
The Scion xB looks like it would offer quite a bit of space and versatility but ends up surprisingly cramped.
For those looking at smaller models, there’s also the Kia Soul, which drives like a small car and has no off-road ability.
Nissan's Cube, another boxy option, is no longer being sold.
