Used Cadillac SRX (2007 - 2008) Costs

Review by Dan Harrison on
The SRX is a large 4x4 vehicle that's designed to be comfortable and easy to drive on-road, rather than a hardcore off roader. Its main strengths are that it comes with seven seats as standard (although the extra row doesn't offer that much room), comes well equipped and is distinctively styled.

Running costs

The SRX isn't cheap to own, but has running costs that are similar to many other petrol-engined cars in this class. On the plus side, the market isn't flooded with them, so a niche market for American cars, sensible list prices and a high specification help to keep values higher than they may otherwise be. With no diesel on offer, fuel consumption is an issue - the 3.6-litre is capable of 21mpg, while the 4.6-litre manages just 20mpg.

Both cars also fall into the highest group for road tax.

Emissions summary

With a choice between a 3.6 V6 or 4.6 V8 petrol engine, it's no surprise that the SRX gets a rock-bottom eco score. The smaller engine achieves 21mpg and emits 317g/km CO2, which although is about average for a large petrol 4x4, is exceptionally poor compared to the average family car. A Mondeo will typically emit about 180g/km CO2.
