A luxury crossover SUV, the Cadillac SRX utilizes components and construction more often associated with cars rather than the rugged truck-based underpinnings GM uses for its more traditional SUVs. The result is a more comfortable ride and better handling, along with plenty of versatility unless you need to tackle heavy-duty chores such as towing or off-road travel. Typically priced below European rivals, the SRX makes for a genuinely appealing alternative thanks to its distinctive styling, pleasant driving character and feature-rich cabin.
If you're shopping for a used Cadillac SRX, you'll find early models with either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive and options like a third-row seat and a V8. Later versions of this Cadillac crossover are a bit smaller, with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, two rows of seating and V6 power. Although the newer version sacrifices some space, power and performance, it offers a significantly nicer interior with upgraded materials and technology.
