Lesser-known brands have their pros and cons. Sometimes after-sales service and resale values can be compromised. But they often represent brilliant value for money. The Dodge Journey fi ts the bill in the value stakes; it is the most affordable large crossover in South Africa, and it offers seven passenger seating too. The second- and third-row seats fold flat to create almost 2m3 cargo space. There are floor bins in front of the second-row seats that can hold anything from muddy clothes to cans – and they’re fab for hiding valuables.
