If you're looking for some off-road ability to get to a trailhead or a fishing spot, the 2017 Jeep Patriot squares off best against the Subaru Crosstrek and its own, internal rival, the Jeep Renegade.
The Crosstrek is more car-like, but offers comparable interior space and a lot more technology.
The Renegade, meanwhile, is dripping with personality, but is a little more expensive than the Patriot.
For strictly on road use, the Toyota RAV4 is pricier and won't offer as many discounts, but it's roomier and more polished.
The Honda CR-V comes in closer to a similarly equipped Patriot's price tag, but again lavishes more comfort and amenities.
The Mazda CX-5, meanwhile, is the sportiest model and, along with the Crosstrek, Forester, and the Patriot, is one of few crossovers to offer a manual transmission.
