Searching for a good 4x4 under 30k

It's been an interesting search because so many of these mid-sized/compact suvs/crossovers are straight up mom cars.  

 

So far I'm looking at the Subaru Impreza Sport Limited 5-Door:

...and the Jeep Patriot Latitude 4x4:

Why? I'm hoping to find something that is 4x4, has decent MPG, still some good space but is on the smaller end.  These two have jumped out in front but was looking for some recommendations.  

 

Trying to keep it under 27k.

If you're looking at the Impreza, I assume you've looked at the Crosstrek as well.  That ground clearance could be key depending on what you're looking to do.  I have a 2011 Legacy and love it, but the ground celarance is an issue when we get major snow.

Yeah, I was reading up on that.  They're basically the same ride except for the clearance and wheels.  I'll definitely check it out.

I'm looking new but that's why I like the Patriot.  Closest looking non-Grand Cherokee to an actual jeep.

I didn't even look at the price...

XJs will go anywhere and are extremely easy to modify.

My 2009 Tahoe LTZ loaded with every option available for that model year is all yours for a mere $25k. Just rolled 100k miles, has all scheduled maintenance and comes with all monthly OnStar Vehicle reports since I bought it in 2010.
