On the open road, the SRX glides serenely without veer or vagueness. Some SUV suspensions tremble at the first sign of an S-curve, but not that of the SRX, which...
... negotiates corners without giving the impression it has a high center of gravity, even when loaded down with people and cargo. The steering feel is light at first, but quickly firms up as the speed rises. The SRX's steering is precise, with dead-on straight-line tracking and confident predictability when turning into corners. On the whole, the SRX easily rivals the handling characteristics of the
Volvo XC90 and may be just slightly short of matching the BMW X5. When fitted with the V6, the SRX's acceleration feels strong but without the same sense of urgency provided by the V8.
