2015 Dodge Journey vs. 2015 Subaru Forester Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Dodge Journey offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Subaru Forester, with comparable head- and legroom. The Subaru Forester offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Dodge Journey, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Dodge Journey as you will with the Subaru Forester, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Dodge Journey or the Subaru Forester, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Dodge Journey is much higher than that for the Subaru Forester.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Journey is much wider than the Subaru Forester, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Dodge Journey, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Subaru Forester.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Dodge Journey does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Subaru Forester.

Handling
The Dodge Journey has a significantly larger turning radius than the Subaru Forester, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Dodge Journey is clearly the choice over the Subaru Forester for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Journey greatly out-muscles the Subaru Forester.

Utility
The Dodge Journey offers greater seating capacity than the Subaru Forester, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Dodge Journey as you will in the Subaru Forester.

Warranty
The Dodge Journey comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Subaru Forester.
