  1. I really don’t like the horrible decisions that Dodge/Ram are making. Now their vehicles are weak.

  2. So basically, it’s a Jeep Compass……which is crap

  3. The music is too loud, making it hard to hear his voice.

  4. Very nice! I hope it is a success for Dodge. Alex is the rock star of CR. I recommend he stands on the hood and shreds his guitar.

  5. Too bad about the car-and the super annoying music.

  6. I was curious to see how this stacked up against the Mazda CX-5 turbo since they are the leaders in horsepower in this segment. Looks like the CX-5 is a clear winner.

    Solution: X1 or GLA.

    Compass was an okay product, but this is a dollar shop one-time use experience.

  8. If you won this on The Price is Right, ummm Drew can I get the cash value?

  9. I agree with below, lose the music!

    Whoever approved this vehicle at Stellantis is out of touch.

  12. I test drove the Hornet and liked it! Quick, handled well and comfortable font seats.

  13. To the editor: Make the background music louder. I can still hear that guy talking. Might as well make it a music video.

  14. An EXCELLENT succinct initial overview – thank you.

  15. Please lower the music

  16. I got rid of a 2010 Mazda 3s hatch because of the thick A pillars interfering with my vision at intersections . Traded it 2 years later for a 2013 Mazda CX5 which I’m still driving 11 years later. For my money you can’t go wrong with a Mazda CX5 in the compact Cuv market.

  17. I did like that you didn’t have to use a rod to hold up the hood—–but that was all I liked.

  18. Leave it up to Chrysler/Fiat to give us a 20 year old platform as a new car.

  19. It reminds me of a version of the Fiat Duster. When i seen the Duster when i was in Rome. I thought it would be a good fit for the American car market due to its size and looks.

  20. A Dodge based Maserati?.. That should be expensive once the warranty is over.
