The Patriot undercuts rivals such as the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 by about £3000. Running costs are competitive for the class. The diesel will average 42.8mpg, and carbon dioxide emissions of 172g/km put it in the 26% company car tax band. The petrol manages 33.2mpg and a high 196g/km for carbon dioxide emissions.
Jeep Patriot 4x4 quality & reliability
This is where the Patriot trails its rivals. The cabin is made up of too many different-coloured plastics, and most are hard and look cheap. Touch them and they feel flimsy, too. Jeep has a poor reliability record, consistently finishing near the bottom in our surveys.
Jeep Patriot 4x4 safety & security
You get a lot of safety kit with your Patriot. Every model comes with front, side and head airbags (the front airbags deploy differently depending on the severity of the crash). Then there are stability control and brake assist systems for emergencies, as well as a system that helps prevent the car rolling over. An alarm and immobiliser take care of security.
