The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

3.8
6.8

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. What it lacks in personality, the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan crossover SUV makes up for with its clean approach.
