2016 Jeep Patriot vs 2016 Subaru Crosstrek
SUVs and crossovers come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. When you don't want something big and bulky, you can opt for something more compact and agile, like the 2016 Jeep Patriot. Though smaller in stature than some of its Jeep siblings, the Patriot still comes with a spirit for adventure. It's not without its competition, however, which is why drivers are likely to compare models like the 2016 Jeep Patriot vs models like the 2016 Subaru Crosstrek.
Like Jeep, the Subaru brand is known for its ability to travel off the beaten path, but when comparing these two vehicles there are important differences that cannot be ignored. For example, despite the fact that the Crosstrek and Patriot have similar dimensions, the 2016 Jeep Patriot far exceeds the Crosstrek's offerings in both cargo and passenger space.
|2016 Jeep Patriot||VS||2016 Subaru Crosstrek|
|Up to 104.4 cu. ft.||Passenger Volume||Up to 97.5 cu. ft.|
|Up to 53.5 cu. ft.||Cargo Capacity||Up to 51.9 cu. ft.|
|158 hp, 141 lb-ft of torque||Standard Engine Specs||148 hp, 145 lb-ft of torque|
|From $17,695||MSRP||From $21,595|
Differences Between the 2016 Jeep Patriot and 2016 Subaru Crosstrek
Things appear more similar when comparing the standard engine specs between the models, with the Patriot having the edge in horsepower and the Crosstrek having just a slight lead in torque. Drivers looking for more power, however, may be disappointed to find that the only other option on the 2016 Crosstrek is a hybrid system. The Patriot, on the other hand, offers an available 2.4-liter engine putting drivers in control of as much as 172 horsepower and 165 lb-ft of torque, figures that surpass the Crosstrek's available hybrid system power.
It's already been made clear that the Patriot provides far more interior space for both cargo and passengers, but what else can you find inside the vehicle? After all, the 2016 Patriot starts at an MSRP far below the 2016 Crosstrek. You may be surprised to learn that the Jeep Patriot comes generously equipped with standard features like 1-year of SiriusXM Radio service (opposed to the Crosstrek's 4-month free subscription) and even illuminated cup holders.
We've only just begun to compare the 2016 Jeep Patriot vs 2016 Subaru Crosstrek, but unfortunately, the Patriot impresses in too many areas to list here. Either way, it's clear that Jeep's compact crossover has the edge in this comparison. Don't just take our word for it, though.
