GREEN | 5 out of 10
17 mpg city, 24 highway (front-wheel drive); 16/23 (AWD)
Green shoppers probably won't take a long look at the 2012 Cadillac SRX after even a brief look at its window sticker. Its EPA ratings of 16 to 17 mpg in the city and 23 or 24 mpg on the highway aren't that impressive. A number of larger crossovers—like GM's own full-size SUVs such as the Buick Enclave, or even the Cadillac Escalade Hybrid—get around the same or better mileage with more passenger space.
The new 3.6-liter engine hasn't helped either; those ratings are about 1 mpg lower than with last year's 3.0-liter base engine.
The 2012 Cadillac SRX is bound to be a disappointment for anyone thinking they'll be getting better mileage when they downsize.
