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.

The Destination Charge for the Jeep Patriot is much higher than that for the Kia Sportage.
