Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Journey than in the Hyundai Venue. The Dodge Journey offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Venue, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
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 Hyundai Venue.

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). The Dodge Journey is somewhat more expensive than the Hyundai Venue. 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 Hyundai Venue.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Journey is much wider than the Hyundai Venue, 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 Hyundai Venue.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Journey greatly out-muscles the Hyundai Venue.

Powertrain
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 Hyundai Venue.

Utility
The Dodge Journey offers greater seating capacity than the Hyundai Venue, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Dodge Journey, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Hyundai Venue.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Dodge Journey is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Venue.
