The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Dodge Journey is a crossover wagon for seven, not a Le Mans intender; it's well-suited for a practical family journey. The 2011 Subaru Outback is the equivalent of a good cross-trainer—offering satisfying on-road performance, modest trail capability, and enviable interior versatility and space, all with just a taste of luxury, too.
