Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Journey than in the Nissan Kicks. The Nissan Kicks will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Dodge Journey.

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 Nissan Kicks.

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 Nissan Kicks. 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 Nissan Kicks.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Journey is much wider than the Nissan Kicks, 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 Nissan Kicks.

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 Nissan Kicks.

Handling
The Dodge Journey has a significantly larger turning radius than the Nissan Kicks, 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 Nissan Kicks.

Utility
The Dodge Journey offers greater seating capacity than the Nissan Kicks, 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 Nissan Kicks.

Warranty
The Dodge Journey comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan Kicks.
