The 2009 Dodge Journey crossover is in its first model year, and in its base form sports plenty of room, though its powertrain and interior quality leave much to be desired.
Saturn’s Vue was new in 2008 and is the handsomest crossover in this group, and offers a big V-6 for plenty of power.
Honda’s CR-V is the class leader in sales but was updated with a controversial front end recently.
Toyota’s RAV4 is the only vehicle in this group to offer a third-row seat; it also can be ordered with a V-6 engine.
