2016 Jeep Patriot vs. 2016 Hyundai Tucson Review

Comparison Review

Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Patriot than in the Hyundai Tucson. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Jeep Patriot and the Hyundai Tucson.

With the Hyundai Tucson, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Jeep Patriot, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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.

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.

The Jeep Patriot has much lower torque than the Hyundai Tucson, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

The Jeep Patriot has the same turning radius as the Hyundai Tucson, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

When considering towing capacity, the Jeep Patriot is clearly the choice over the Hyundai Tucson for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Jeep Patriot and the Hyundai Tucson.

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.

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