TrueDelta Reviews the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2012 Dodge Journey

2012 Dodge Journey Seat Room and Comfort: Pros
YearComment
2013 Overly firm, insufficiently contoured front seats seem to be popping up everywhere lately, even in the formerly fluffy Toyota Avalon. (Blame the influence of the Germans.) The Dodge Journey’s front buckets provide a refreshing alternative, with a rare combination of cushiness and support. The armrests and door pulls are also well-padded. The driver-side lumbar powers up and down as well as in and out. The headrests even adjust fore-aft, a rarity among sub-luxury cars these days. If only the driver seat also included power recline... see full Dodge Journey review
2012 Dodge Journey Seat Room and Comfort: Cons
YearComment
As mentioned earlier, Chrysler really dropped the ball when it packaged the Journey. The second-row seat is a comfortable height off the floor, yet headroom is plentiful even by crossover standards. But that’s the beginning and end of the back seat’s virtues. The optional third-row seat is kids-only (unless the adults in question aren’t much larger than kids). Though less than an inch longer, and riding on a wheelbase that’s 3.6 inches shorter, the new 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe has eight more inches of legroom in each of the rear rows—a huge difference. Adults can fit in the Journey’s second row if it’s slide back at least half way along its travel, but they can’t stretch out like they can in the Santa Fe. Or in many compact crossovers, for that matter. Poor packaging also makes for a fairly high load floor and (as mentioned above) less cargo volume than in other similarly-dimensioned crossovers. see full Dodge Journey review
