Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The ancient 2020 Dodge Journey is worth skipping in favor of almost any other new crossover SUV, and many used ones.

Pros
Cheap
Room for seven
Optional infotainment system
Roomy interior

Cons
Poor safety record
Few features
Dated styling and materials
No more V-6 or AWD

Dodge cuts down the number of available trims on the Journey from three to just two for 2020: the SE Value and the Crossroad. The other notable cuts are the absence of all-wheel drive and the optional V-6 engine that were paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. The only powertrain available is now the antiquated 172-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder that is paired to a four-speed automatic and front-wheel drive. In the SE Value trim, the package gives you a six-way power-adjustable driver's seat, Uconnect with Voice Command and Bluetooth, SiriusXM satellite radio, three-zone climate control, security alarm, and a leather-wrapped shift knob and steering wheel.

Pros
Lots of cabin space,
intuitive infotainment,
unbeatable price.

Cons
Uninspired styling,
dismal driving dynamics,
needs driver-assist tech.

The 2020 Dodge Journey comes with front wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 4-speed shiftable automatic.Base trim renamed to SE Value.GT trim and V6 engine dropped.

Pros
Extra versatility provided by a standard three-row seat
Low price for the segment

Cons
Lacks many modern safety and convenience features even in top trims
Below-average fuel economy
Disappointing and outdated base engine and transmission
Lags competitors in handling and drivability

The Ford Ka+ Active takes a fun and affordable small car and gives it a neat SUV makeover, but loses some of its fun and affordability in the process.

Pros
Raised driving position
Smart SUV styling
Good boot space

Cons
Not terrific value
Petrol engine a little rough
Hard to get comfortable driving position

Pros
Sensibly priced,
surprisingly spacious,
not at all awful to drive

Cons
None of the vim of the original car,
none of the vim of a Fiat 500,
none of the vim of a Mini
