The market for midsize luxury crossovers is seeing both strong competition and strong sales, which helps explain the situation with the 2016 Cadillac SRX. Though still a relatively popular choice in its own right, the SRX is being replaced in the Cadillac lineup by a next-generation entry known as the 2017 XT5. For Autobytel experts—and customers—that creates a potential high-value sales scenario, since dealers may be more eager to negotiate on the current SRX to make room for the new XT5.
And again, the SRX continues to offer noticeable benefits versus its rivals from other brands. Cadillac specifically singles out the Lexus RX, Mercedes-Benz M-Class (now the GLE), BMW X3 and Audi Q5 as competition for the SRX, yet as detailed in this review, shoppers may not always find these models directly comparable in the real world. This is why we've also included the Lincoln MKX as a possible alternative to the Cadillac.
