Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum - 2010+ Discussion, Couple questions about 2010 SRX in Cadillac SRX Forums; I'm interesting about the 2010 SRX, however I have couple questions here. I try to visited couple dealers in Vancouver, ...
It is full time. It is the same Haldex system in the Saabs. It is an upgraded system from the one found in the Q5 (also Haldex, but an older version). The Equinox does not have a Haldex.
I don't know what you mean by performance, but if you are asking how well the sytem works in keeping the car going, the system is superior to previous systems. If you are asking about the SRX's "performance" like acceleration, that is easy enough to find using edmunds, cars.com, motortrend.com, etc. Here is a single article on the SRX referencing the vehicles you mentioned:
The performance I was talking about is AWD performance.
I asked a sales yesterday, he told me the AWD system in SRX and equinox are identical, I didn't believe him at all, and thanks for your confirmation.
So, SRX should superior Q5 on AWD, hmm, that's really interesting.
Since I'm looking for a nice AWD SUV for upcoming winter, the snow last year in Vancouver was a nightmare. How do you think it compare with 2010 outback regarding AWD. (I know they're not in the same category, I just want to know how well the AWD in SRX)
For some reason I can't find specifics on it, but as far as I can tell, the Q5 does not have the ability to send power left and right, only front to back. The Haldex system designed for the Saabs (9-4x, SRX) can, so you will have better traction and handling in the SRX.
