The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Lexus RX 350 has a well-earned reputation for luxury, but fun is off the menu. The 2009 Cadillac SRX enters its last year as a good-looking and functional crossover, but tight third-row seating and poor fuel efficiency remain as blemishes on an otherwise solid package.
