The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
It's aged less rapidly than other American-made Mitsus, but the 2012 Outlander still is bypassed by other compact crossovers. Practical without being too prim, the 2012 Dodge Journey cuts an interesting figure and spans the gulf between compact crossovers and family-grade SUVs.
