You're probably wondering how the Jeep Patriot stacks up against its competitors, which is why we broke down its features against the Mazda CX-5 in our vehicle comparison below. If you'd like to learn more, keep reading for a comprehensive car comparison:�

The Patriot's Next Adventure

The 2016 Jeep Patriot is available in four trim levels - Sport, Sport SE, Latitude and High Altitude - and each come with seating for five passengers, standard front-wheel drive, two available 4X4 systems and tough off-road capabilities.

In fact, Jeep Patriots are equipped with the Freedom Drive II Off-Road Group 4X4 system that received a Trail Rated� badge for their excellent traction, articulation, ground clearance, maneuverability and water fording abilities. No matter what road conditions you're dealing with, the Jeep Patriot delivers rugged handling and a stable, sure-footed performance.

Every Patriot gets a standard 158 horsepower 2.0L DOHC 16V four-cylinder engine that delivers 141 pounds-feet of torque for an unapologetic off-road performance. If you prefer an engine with extra force, the Patriot's Sport and Latitude trims offer an additional 172 horsepower 2.4L four-cylinder engine generating 165 pounds-feet of torque. Whichever engine you choose, the 2016 Patriot provides smooth acceleration, bold power and an efficient fuel economy.

Along with these engines, the Patriot offers an innovative transmission lineup for a consistent power output. Sport and Latitude trims are paired with a five-speed manual transmission, while Sport SE and High Altitude Trims get an AutoStick� Automatic Transmission. A continuously variable transaxle II transmission is also offered, in addition to a six-speed automatic transmission. Each maintain smooth gear shifts and an efficient fuel economy while driving through Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx.

Cruising in a CX-5

Like the Jeep Patriot, the 2016 Mazda CX-5 comes with standard front-wheel drive, seating for five passengers and two four-cylinder engine options. For 2016, the CX-5 is offered in three trim levels -Sport, Touring and Grand Touring - and each offer an energetic performance on the highway.

The CX-5's Sport trims comes with a standard six-speed manual transmission, though the six-speed automatic that comes with Touring and Grand Touring trims is also offered. Each maintain an efficient fuel economy, smooth gear shifts and a sprightly ride quality.

All-wheel drive is also available on the CX-5, though it doesn't wear the Jeep Patriot's Trail Rated� badge. Its handling, cornering and steering are sufficient on rough terrain and inclement weather, but it lacks the Patriot's agility and dexterity during severe conditions.

Jeep Patriot Technology

The Jeep Patriot is available with a Radio 430 Uconnect system with Navigation, which includes Bluetooth, a one year subscription to SiriusXM� Satellite Radio, Uconnect Voice Command, hands-free calling, a 6.5-inch touchscreen, an audio jack and more. Each of these features provide all your information, entertainment and communication needs, and they keep you connected while driving through New York City.

Mazda CX-5 Technology

The Mazda CX-5 is also available with an infotainment system and touchscreen, though its system is temperamental and slow to respond at times compared to the Jeep Patriot.
