Pros & cons


Well equipped, strong Volkswagen-sourced diesel engine, seven seats, road presence


Some cheap interior materials, noisy at speed, uncomfortable seats

Written by David Ross Published: 6 June 2019 Updated: 6 June 2019


Dodge is promising families a best-of-all-worlds compromise with the Journey, a ‘crossover’ estate that blends seating for seven, the interior space and versatility of a people carrier and the fuel efficiency of a hatchback. The list price is lower than similar cars like the Ford S-MAX and Renault Grand Scenic plus the Journey is better equipped. Typical Dodge ‘attitude’ styling gives the car a bold appearance and the interior is practical and family-friendly.

Unfortunately quality and refinement are lacking while the ride is spongy, taking the edge off comfort.
