The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

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 Honda CR-V is homely, as well as unexciting to drive; yet it's a great minivan alternative on many counts—appealing to practical shoppers with a roomy, versatile interior and top safety ratings. The roomy, versatile 2011 Subaru Forester handles better than just about any other small crossover, though the need for a more modern transmission and a little more cabin refinement keep it from greatness.
