2017 Jeep Patriot vs. Its Competition

2017 Jeep Patriot
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

Look for big discounts on the Patriot, especially as a new model is imminent.

The best value here is in a more sparsely equipped Sport, but the Sport SE provides a few nice creature comforts for not much more money.

Quick Specs
4.7
Feeling like a modern, but not as rugged incarnation of the classic '80s and '90s Jeep Cherokee, the Jeep Patriot is a simple crossover that makes a decent budget choice.
6.8
Think of the 2017 Honda HR-V as a Fit with all-wheel drive and a little more headroom. It's not as fun as it could be, but it makes a lot of sense.
5.3
The 2017 Jeep Renegade is the smallest Jeep you can buy, appealing both to commuters and off-roaders, but its design can outshine its performance.
7.2
One of the best small SUVs, the 2017 Subaru Forester is a good value, with remarkable interior volume, thrifty fuel economy, and top safety scores.
6.2
The 2017 Subaru Outback is an extremely versatile, rugged, compact SUV that's relatively efficient compared to other crossovers.
7.3
There's a RAV4 for just about everyone, and while we applaud Toyota for adding more safety technology for 2017, the competition is worth a good look, too.
