2010 Dodge Journey vs. Its Competition

2010 Dodge Journey
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

Crossover vehicles have come into their own, with many great choices available.

The new Chevy Equinox and Kia Sorento are compelling choices, with four- and six-cylinder engines and plenty of spread-out room.

The Hyundai Santa Fe ranks with them, as does the bigger Toyota RAV4, while the latest Subaru Forester spins four-cylinder power in a stylish new body-but without a third-row seat (like the Equinox).

The Ford Escape offers a hybrid edition, and the Honda CR-V sticks with meager four-cylinder power but has good interior room and a durable reputation.

The Mitsubishi Outlander is close to the Journey in look and feel, and shares its lackluster performance, but gets new styling for 2010.

Quick Specs
The 2010 Dodge Journey crossover is a mini-minivan and excels in features and safety, but the driving experience leaves a lot to be desired.
With mediocre handling and fuel economy, the 2009 Chevrolet Equinox isn’t that appealing, but it still offers superior cabin space.
The 2009 Ford Escape Hybrid is a viable and sturdy contender in the family crossover arena. Gas mileage is excellent for a compact SUV, and optional mechanical all-wheel drive sets it apart from softer competitors.
The 2008 Honda CR-V doesn't have hip style or performance on tap, but it has the security, utility, and frugality that many sensible moms want.
Hyundai is no longer bargain-basement-priced, but the hard-to-fault 2008 Santa Fe has all the refinement of comparable rivals with a little more flair.
The 2008 Toyota RAV4 brings a little more space than most compact SUVs without a mid-size price.
