Save for its rock-bottom price, there’s little reason why anyone should consider the 2017 Jeep Patriot granted the excellence of its rivals. Some of the defining attributes the 2017 model has include comfortable front seats, an attractive price tag, above-average off-road capability, and optional flip-down tailgate speakers. The Jeep Patriot release date should be expected sometime in the first quarter of 2017.
Reasons that should make you think twice about owning the Patriot include subpar crash-test scores, unrefined and sluggish base engine, chintzy cabin, minimal cargo space, and unsophisticated ride quality. By now you’re probably thinking – who’s going to buy that! Surprisingly, it continues to be a strong seller even despite the obnoxious con list. Some of the reasons pundits have come up with include the brand name and the popularity Jeep enjoys with its consumers.
On the upside, though, the new Patriot continues to impress with its off-roading capability that is perhaps unrivalled within its price range. The cabin though lacking in refinement, offers well-bolstered seats and plenty of space. Aside from those, there’re hardly anything good to talk about relative to what the competition offers.
Some of the alternatives to consider include the better-looking Jeep Renegade, the Mazda CX-3, and the 2017 Honda HR-V. Some of the 2017 Jeep Renegade specs include agile handling, easy-to-use technology features, lots of character, and a rewarding drive character. Furthermore, those looking for a superb off-roading capability will find the 2017 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk irresistibly tempting. The Renegade release date should be expected sometime in the latter half of 2017.
The 2017 Honda HR-V is another formidable rival to the 2017 Jeep Patriot. The Honda HR-V price starts from an MSRP of $19,215 and for that amount you get spacious interior accommodations, excellent exterior visibility, high fuel economy, and versatile cargo loading. The Honda HR-V release date should be expected sometime towards the end of 2017.
If you must have a new Jeep and you have a shoestring budget, the Jeep Patriot 2017 is perhaps your best choice. Otherwise, the segment is chock full of appealing and capable crossovers that offer a wide array of functionality.
