TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Dodge Journey should be available at big discounts, which is the only way we’d consider it over far more polished rivals. The 2018 Nissan Rogue may not be very exciting, but it checks all the right boxes—and then some—for most family needs. What it lacks in personality, the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan crossover SUV makes up for with its clean approach.
