TCC’s Bottom Line
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. The 2010 Lexus RX 350 leaves few owners wanting more luxury or practicality, but the "passionate pursuit of perfection" could use a little more passion. The 2009 Nissan Murano combines good handling and a recognizable style with a much more sophisticated interior.
