TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Cadillac SRX offers class-leading technology and excellent interior appointments in a uniquely American luxury crossover. The 2015 Lincoln MKX has aged well, continuing to offer one of the nicer interiors in the class with very few gimmicks. The 2015 Volkswagen Touareg is expensive and fancy for a VW, but less expensive than some comparable luxury-SUV options.
