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

By:

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 2017 Kia Sorento stays true to its high-value roots, but it's grown up in refinement and comfort.
Kia Sorento received a full redesign, with completely new sheet metal, a new body structure, a newly available turbocharged inline-4 engine, plus modest gains in interior space and major gains in general cabin comfort and ride quality.

Pros
Tight, "vault-like" feel
Generous feature set
Responsive, economical 2.0T
Quiet cabin

Cons
Short, bench-like second-row seats
Can't get a third-row seat and turbo-4 engine together
Active-safety features not widely available

By:

The 2017 Kia Sorento ranks 1 out of 18 Midsize SUVs. The 2017 Kia Sorento is a versatile crossover that rates highly in a competitive class thanks to a powerful V6 engine, many user-friendly tech features, and the availability of third-row seats. It also has excellent safety and reliability ratings, and its low starting price makes it a great value.

Pros
Easy to use infotainment system
Potent V6 engine
Stable handling
Quality interior

Cons
Weak standard engine
Limited options for base model

By: 
usnews.com

The 2017 Sorento can now be had with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, along with a couple of new safety features (adaptive headlights and automatic emergency braking). Also, the EX 2.0T gets standard shift paddles, but the SX Limited is no longer offered with the 2.0T engine.

Pros
Controls are easy to operate
Cabin is well-made and attractive
Second-row seats are versatile and comfortable
Strong value proposition
Excellent warranty
Top crash-test scores.

Cons
Turbo engine isn't as punchy or efficient as expected
Most seven-passenger competitors offer more interior space.
