Why would you compare these two ?
Steve wasn't making the comparison. Other knowledgable participants in this discussion were making the comparison. Have you looked at Land Rover LR2 v Jeep Patriot?

#24 of 26 First Drive review

"you find yourself making constant corrections on the highway, which is both frustrating and tiring."
You editor guys must be driving a different car. I own one, and have no idea what you're talking about. In fact, the LR2 is one of the most relaxing vehicles of its type to drive on the highway.

Exactly I think Edmunds and C&D either didn't really drive the LR2 or drove a different car and got confused.
Neither of their reviews fit anything I have experience when driving a LR2.
#26 of 26 seems best for the outback

Given many Edmunds reviews come from factory presentations of new or revised products, I can't see how either Edmunds or C&D could possibly be driving anything else but what they write about. Then again, sometimes the mfr's offer preproduction samples for test.
The Edmunds and C&D reviews suggest the LR2's really more at home in the outback than on local highways.
When I saw the L2 at a local auto show, the LR reps (both from the factory) claimed the LR2 weighed 3600 pounds, which doesn't match the reports nor their own specs! How odd.
