Review of the 2012 SRX Crossover
In the world of lookalike crossovers, the 2012 SRX Crossover SUV has deliberately tried to stand apart. It now comes equipped with a bigger, more powerful engine, the same engine that’s offered in the Cadillac CTS sedan, the 3.6-liter V-6.
The new engine can produce 308 hop and 265 lb-ft of torque, capable of accelerating from 0-to-60 mph in around 7.5 seconds. The 2012 Cadillac SRX gets pretty good gas mileage considering it’s a SUV, and the EPA estimates its fuel efficiency is somewhere around 17 mpg city/24 mpg highway. The best thing about this Cadillac is that it does not require premium fuel. There are two options for the drivetrain, the standard front-wheel-drive and the optional all-wheel-drive.
The exterior received minor changes such as new machined-face 20-inch wheels. The interior got enhanced only slightly and includes Bluetooth connectivity as a standard plus an optional heated steering wheel. The interior provides a comfortable ride, which is to be expected from anything bearing the Cadillac name.
We did find that the headroom in the backseat was very limited space if you’re a tall person, despite the fact that you’re in a SUV. The 2012 Cadillac SRX starts out at $35,985, making it the least expensive in its class however it does seem to be lacking a lot of standard features we hoped to see in this year’s model. Even so, with that low of a base price, we consider this to be a good deal for the new and improved 2012 Cadillac SRX.
