    Does anybody have a pic of raven sapale wood? Is that a premium only option?. So far I have priced base, luxury and performance. Did not see raven as a option.

    ----------

    Never mind. It requires the light titanium interior. I'm looking towards the darker interior colors.

    The light titanium interior is darker than the shale. Only thing darker will be the ebony. And yes the choco sapele wood looks GREAT with this interior.

    We have a 2010 SRX AWD and 2012 Enclave AWD, driven primarily by my wife. We love them both, but I do enjoy the Enclave seats more than the SRX. Others have written that 2013 SRX has improved seating and you should enjoy the power of the 3.6 engine as well. I will say the SRX AWD is a Better performer in the snow and ice here in southeatern Wisconsin. I also do not need three rows of seats to run my daily errands, but the Enclave is handy when kids come with the grandchildren. I know you will love the SRX.

    Thanks, e004698!

    Based on limited time spent on SRX test drives, I tend to agree with you on the seats of Enclave. We too do not need 3 rows of seats and that's one of the reasons going for a smaller vehicle.

    Glad to hear the assurance that I will love the the SRX from someone who has both vehicles. Again based on brief experience with it, I feel the same.

    Cheers!

    I have owned both versions, a 2012 and now a 2013 SRX ... and is the CUE worth getting? A-B-S-O-L-U-T-E-L-Y!

    As far as the new "Driver Awareness" package is it worth the extra money? YES most D-E-F-E-N-I-T-E-L-Y!

    If you are at Techie and like smart phones then you will definitely love the new high tech CUE and with all it's custom screens and programmability too. The new NAV is awesome too and it's screen is a lot more vibrant and interactive also. I won't go into an "in-depth" review of the CUE here because there is a special forum just dedicated to the all new CUE and how it functions.

    As far as the new Lane departure feature ... it works wonderfully and if I had a choice I would get that great feature in every vehicle I purchase in the future ... PERIOD! The Blind Side alert has been out for awhile now and again once you have it you will rely on it all the time to help you decide if and when you are going to make your lane change. There are two other great features also in that package that you can't leave out of the conversation here. That is the "Cross Traffic" alert system that will help detect vehicles approaching you from a distance to be able to give you a couple of seconds warning when a vehicle is about to cross your path as you are backing out. That feature has saved me a few times already when I was parked next to a much larger vehicle when I was pulling out of my driveway and in a parking lot too. The last feature is the "Front Collision Avoidance" feature which also vibrates your seat and flashes a rapid set of red LEDs onto your lower windshield if a vehicle in front of you brakes extremely fast or you might be heading quickly onto a much slower moving vehicle and or parked car.

    This was the best $495.00 US money I have ever spent on a vehicle that includes all those awesome and latest new Safety features to date! IMO: GM should make the "Driver Awareness" package standard or at least made available on every new vehicle they make in the future.

    Marc,
    Since you owned the 12 and the 13, can you comment if the backup camera is better in the 13 than the 12? A lot of people were saying it was very poor in the 10-12s.

    Thanks
    Max

    Max. my 2013 back up camera does seem better to me but again that might be due in part to the new CUE screen which appears to be more vibrant to me than my previous SRXs screens. I have noticed variations between back-up cameras within identical models and within the same MY (Model Year) too.

    BTW: I recently test drove a two new CTS's one camera was good and the other one's back-up camera was super "washed-out" and had a yellow hue in all of the bright areas and the camera was aimed way too low as well, I could barely even see out of it properly.

    The $2,395.00 Driver Assist pkg. was not available at the time I ordered my SRX. It is really a matter of personal preference. If you have the extra cash and would like to have all the goodies then I would say go for it. However, if you decide to only get one option I definitely recommend getting the Driver Awareness pkg. To me that is the best option you can get for your money at only $495.00 US! I absolutely love those four seperate added safety features! I would not want to own another vehicle without that package in it.

    Re: 2013 SRX: Ordering soon...

    Don't blame you, the Driver Awareness package is really great. I find myself checking the mirrors all the time for something in my blind spot, and I didn't realize how often I get very close to or cross one of the lane line markers. Only had the collision alarm go off once, but the combination of both sides of the seat thumping and a red light flashing on the windshield will get your attention. Keep looking, you will find the perfect new 13 SRX
