WASHINGTON The 2014 Dodge Journey crossover earned a four-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The 2014 Journey earned four stars in the front crash test, five stars in the side crash test and four stars in the rollover crash test.

Five stars is the highest rating.

The 2014 Journey earned "good" ratings in all Insurance Institute for Highway Safety crash tests, including the moderate overlap frontal crash test. The forces in the test are similar to those that would result from a frontal offset crash between two vehicles of the same weight, each going just less than 40 miles per hour.

Standard safety features on the 2014 Journey include electronic stability control with traction control, antilock brakes, a driver-side knee airbag and side curtain airbags covering all three rows of seats.

Key competitors to the Journey include the 2014 Chevrolet Equinox, 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe, Mitsubishi Outlander and Toyota RAV4.

Edmunds says: Car shoppers should know the rating puts the 2014 Dodge Journey on a par with the 2014 Chevrolet Equinox and Toyota RAV4, which also earned NHTSA's four-star overall rating. The 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe has not been rated and the all-wheel-drive version of the 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander earned a five-star overall safety rating.
