TCC’s Bottom Line
It's not an involving crossover to drive, but the 2012 Lexus RX 450h has hybrid technology underhood and a long track record of satisfied buyers behind it. 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.
