Comparison Review

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

Convenience
The Dodge Journey requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, 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 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. 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 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

Dimensions
The Dodge Journey is a little wider than the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. 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 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Dodge Journey doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

Handling
The Dodge Journey has a larger turning radius than the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.
