It looks much better in real life, trust me.
It is not for everyone for sure. Body wise, it it the exact same car from the front to the C-Pillar, swing metal included. It is a replacment to the SRX as that model will soon be gone. I love the tail lamps, they run full length of the rear.
V-Model? Haven't heard.... My quess is that since they did not make a SRX in a V series they will most likely not this model....
Thanks for the pics!
