The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
3.3
6.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The ancient 2020 Dodge Journey is worth skipping in favor of almost any other new crossover SUV, and many used ones. The 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan is a well-rounded crossover SUV, just don’t expect to use its third row for anyone bigger than the family dog.
