Comparison Review

Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda HR-V than in the Dodge Journey, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Dodge Journey offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda HR-V, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Dodge Journey, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Honda HR-V.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Dodge Journey will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Honda HR-V. 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 Honda HR-V.

Since the Dodge Journey is much wider than the Honda HR-V, 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 Honda HR-V.

With somewhat higher torque, the Dodge Journey transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Honda HR-V.

The Dodge Journey has a larger turning radius than the Honda HR-V, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

The Dodge Journey has a little more horsepower than the Honda HR-V.

The Dodge Journey offers greater seating capacity than the Honda HR-V, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Dodge Journey has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Honda HR-V.

The Dodge Journey comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda HR-V.
