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 Ford Edge rises to the top of the five-seat crossover niche with forward-thinking technology and a gas-saving EcoBoost option. Still a great choice for families, the 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe has good safety scores and available V-6 power.
