The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
7.6
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. The 2016 Toyota RAV4 is a competent crossover utility with a new Hybrid model this year, updated safety systems, and lots of interior space.
