2015 Jeep Patriot vs. 2015 Hyundai Tucson Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Jeep Patriot offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Hyundai Tucson. The Jeep Patriot offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Tucson, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jeep Patriot as you will with the Hyundai Tucson, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Jeep Patriot will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Hyundai Tucson. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Jeep Patriot is much higher than that for the Hyundai Tucson.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Patriot is much slimmer than the Hyundai Tucson, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Jeep Patriot takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Tucson.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Jeep Patriot doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Tucson.

Handling
The Jeep Patriot has a larger turning radius than the Hyundai Tucson, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Jeep Patriot is clearly the choice over the Hyundai Tucson for pulling heavy loads. The Jeep Patriot has a little less horsepower than the Hyundai Tucson.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Patriot and the Hyundai Tucson. The Jeep Patriot has less cargo space than the Hyundai Tucson, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Jeep Patriot is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Tucson.
