SUVs are rising in popularity once again. The largest U.S. automakers reported a 15 percent jump in SUV sales in 2016, while sales of large and mid-size sedans fell 11 percent over the year.
With gas prices back down to sane levels, consumers are once again appreciating all the perks SUVs offer: increased safety, comfortability and versatility. SUVs are ideal for large families, road trips, hauling and off-road adventures.
If you’re in the market for a used SUV, make sure you check out the 2012 Cadillac SRX. In a recent review, Autotrader praised the 2012 SRX for its power, performance, features, design and much more.
Here are four reasons you just might fall in love, too:
