SRX in the Market

Your enthusiasm for the SRX will likely come down to how much you like its looks. Our test car cost just over $51,000, and at that price there are other models out there that offer more luxury, more performance, or both, so the SRX's styling is its strongest attribute.

The SRX's problem is that, even after a prolonged test, there was nothing that made me love it to the point that I'd spend the money for it over, say, the related Chevrolet Equinox, let alone a non-GM competitor. The SRX needs to step up and stand out from the crowd more. Refining the brakes and transmission would be a great place to start.
