2014 Jeep Patriot vs. 2014 Mazda CX-5 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Jeep Patriot offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Mazda CX-5. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Jeep Patriot and the Mazda CX-5.

Convenience
The Mazda CX-5 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Patriot, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Clearly, the Jeep Patriot is a better financial choice over the Mazda CX-5, when considering MSRP. 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 Mazda CX-5.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Patriot is much slimmer than the Mazda CX-5, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Jeep Patriot is slightly shorter than the Mazda CX-5, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Jeep Patriot has much lower torque than the Mazda CX-5, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Jeep Patriot has a smaller turning radius than the Mazda CX-5, allowing you to more easily 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 Mazda CX-5, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Jeep Patriot has a little less horsepower than the Mazda CX-5.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Patriot and the Mazda CX-5. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Jeep Patriot as you will in the Mazda CX-5.

Warranty
The Jeep Patriot comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mazda CX-5.
