Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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.
It may look like the boxy, truck-like Cherokee of yore, but the Jeep Patriot is a very different animal. It's dated up against rivals—including the latest Cherokee and the pint-sized Renegade parked across the Jeep showroom—but the Patriot may be worth a look if value is one of your main priorities.

Pros
Boxy exterior reminds us of the old Cherokee (in a good way)
Pint-size dimensions are great in town
Decent off road
Strong value

Cons
Interior is tight and dated
Surprisingly mediocre fuel economy
Awful CVT
Lack of safety technology

The 2017 Jeep Patriot ranks 18 out of 18 Compact SUVs. If you're looking for a budget-friendly SUV that you can take off road, the 2017 Jeep Patriot is one of the more affordable choices. However, if you spend most of your time on-road, other compact SUVs will serve you better in terms of reliability, comfort, and safety.

Pros
Skilled off road with available four-wheel drive
Rugged, easy-to-clean cabin

Cons
Few standard and available features
Interior materials look cheap
Engines are sluggish and thirsty
Boorish optional CVT

By:

You might be attracted to the 2017 Jeep Patriot because of its low price. But there's not much else about the Patriot to make it worthy of your consideration, especially because an all-new model is likely just around the corner.With a replacement likely coming next year, the Jeep Patriot carries forward unchanged for 2017.

Pros
Optional flip-down tailgate speakers
Above-average off-road capability with Freedom Drive II
Attractively priced.

Cons
Unrefined and sluggish base engine that's paired to a droning CVT
Steering wheel doesn't telescope
Subpar crash test scores
Unsophisticated ride quality when going over bumps
Minimal cargo space
Chintzy cabin materials.

The latest BMW X3 is well worth considering if you’re looking for a family SUV with a spacious and plush interior that’s relaxing to drive.

Pros
Spacious cabin
Practical boot
Quiet and comfortable to drive

Cons
Desirable options cost extra
Looks like the old car
Cabin doesn’t look very exciting

By: 
carwow.co.uk

The X3 also becomes a more full-fledged member of the BMW family with its upgraded interior. And at a time when some of the brand’s passenger-car offerings have strayed from BMW’s historically strong dynamics, the new X3 makes an encouraging showing there as well.

Pros
Chassis tuning like BMWs of old,
improved interior,
plenty of passenger and cargo space.

Cons
Imprecise variable-ratio steering,
goofy electronic shifter,
the entry-level four pales next to the six-cylinder.
