So far, I am very impressed with this vehicle! It handles very smoothly
Front Seats Ranked 2006 Cadillac SRX worse.
"The style of the seat and the softness of the leather make the Lexus extremely comfortable "
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2006 Cadillac SRX better.
"The Cadillac had a third row seating option that turns nicely into a large area for cargo capacity. The wheel wells or lift gate get in the way for other vehicles. With the older SRX, the back is very spacious!"
