The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
Practical without being too prim, the 2012 Dodge Journey cuts an interesting figure and spans the gulf between compact crossovers and family-grade SUVs. The 2012 Toyota RAV4 remains a strong, refined choice for families, even though some of its design might be a blast from the past.
