The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
With a smooth new engine and a rich, uniquely American interior, the 2012 Cadillac SRX appeals to those who want a lot of luxury and flair but don't require driving excitement. It's stylish and refined, but the 2012 Nissan Murano isn't the most space-efficient crossover.
