Comparison Review

Comfort
The Dodge Journey offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Mazda CX-30. The Dodge Journey will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mazda CX-30.

Convenience
The Dodge Journey requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Mazda CX-30, making it more convenient to drive.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Dodge Journey will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mazda CX-30. 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 Mazda CX-30.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Journey is much wider than the Mazda CX-30, 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 Mazda CX-30.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Dodge Journey doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mazda CX-30.

Handling
The Dodge Journey has a significantly larger turning radius than the Mazda CX-30, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Dodge Journey has a little less horsepower than the Mazda CX-30.

Utility
The Dodge Journey offers greater seating capacity than the Mazda CX-30, 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 Mazda CX-30.

Warranty
The Dodge Journey comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mazda CX-30.
