2008 Cadillac SRX vs. Its Competition

2008 Cadillac SRX RWD 4-door V6 Front Exterior View
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

The Mercedes-Benz M-Class doesn't offer a third-row seat, but it is spacious and will be offered with a six-cylinder diesel engine for the coming model year.

The Land Rover Range Rover Sport shares the Cadillac SRX's love for straight lines, but comes off as a more upscale knockoff of its Range Rover brother.

The Volkswagen Touareg is a five-seater as well, and it has a conservative look.

The Infiniti FX seats five and is relatively outrageous by the standards of the crossover class, while the Lexus RX 350 is a traditional luxury crossover with an enviable reputation for quality.
