2015 Jeep Patriot vs. 2015 Kia Sportage Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Patriot than in the Kia Sportage. The Jeep Patriot offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Kia Sportage, 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 Kia Sportage, 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 Kia Sportage. 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 Kia Sportage.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Patriot is much slimmer than the Kia Sportage, 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 Kia Sportage.

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

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

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Jeep Patriot will do just as well as the Kia Sportage, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Jeep Patriot has a little less horsepower than the Kia Sportage.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Patriot and the Kia Sportage. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Jeep Patriot as you will in the Kia Sportage.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Jeep Patriot is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Sportage.
