The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Dodge Journey is a strong value among crossover SUVs, but it misses the mark for the tech-savvy and safety-conscious. Tough, go-anywhere capability can go together with a streamlined wagon design, class-leading safety, and a comfortable ride: The 2016 Subaru Outback is a conceptual mashup that's better than the sum of its parts.
