The Patriot is a softer Jeep, designed for owners who want the extra ability of a four-wheel drive, but don't need a large off roader. It's smaller and cheaper then the Cherokee with less rugged looks, but still comes with a practical and family-friendly cabin.

Summary

Parkers Rating:

3 out of 5

The Patriot is a softer Jeep, designed for owners who want the extra ability of a four-wheel drive, but don't need a large off roader. It's smaller and cheaper then the Cherokee with less rugged looks, but still comes with a practical and family-friendly cabin. The most popular engine is the 2.0-litre CRD - a diesel sourced from Volkswagen which although lacking in refinement, does offer good grunt.

Unfortunately the interior of the Patriot is poor quality with cheap plastics and flimsy switches, while the finish is low rent too. Compared to normal family hatchbacks, it's not particularly cheap to run either.

What owners say...

 It's spacious, built to be easy to work on. Great legroom and lots of options on the seats folding for luggage space.

 It doesn't have a lip at the boot making it easy to load/unload.
