3. 2016 Dodge Journey
The Dodge Journey features an excellent interior design and an outstanding infotainment system. The Journey comes standard with a four-cylinder engine and a four-speed automatic transmission. The base Journey lacks the punch of the higher trim with an extremely low fuel economy of approximately 19/26 city/highway. Critics of the 2016 Journey state that even the available V6 engine is underpowered. The Journey has proven itself on twisty roads and offers the occupants a supportive ride. The first two seating rows are sufficient for adult passengers, but the final row is best suited for children.
Standard features for the Journey include a six-speaker sound system, push-button start and Dodge’s Uconnect infotainment system. Upgrades include Bluetooth compatibility, a rear-seat nine-inch entertainment screen and tri-zone automatic climate control. Test drivers are in ecstasy over the Journey’s infotainment system for its intuitive design and its user-friendliness.
Despite its good points, the Journey features one of the worst cargo spaces in the class. The small space can be increased by lowering the optional fold-flat passenger seat.
