I owned three cars before and all of them are white(I just like it)... I do a quick inquiry from autopriceshare.com and the dealers give a fair price. However, they told me that they only have two black SRXs for base version. The only white SRX is Premium and it is beyond my budget.
I want to wait for a white version. But dealer told me the price is always changing and they cannot guarantee the same price weeks later.
Should I just accept the black version or seek for a white one? Is 33939 a fair price for SRX 2015(base model FWD) Any suggestions will be helpful, thanks in advance

Black looks beautiful but it's hard to keep clean. I would hold out for a white one. That seems like a good deal to me.

Lighter colors are always easier to keep clean. There probably will be a price increase for new models so waiting for a base white might cost you more. Good luck with your purchase!

White!!! Black is hard to keep clean and a maintenance nightmare if you don't wash it properly... If you are a Car Wash kind of owner.... White! Swirl Marks in Black will be very noticeable as well as dirt.

Nothing looks better than a clean black car. It's not more difficult to keep clean that white IF you use a California Duster to keep the dust off.

It's not that much hotter than white. The A/C is so good, you'll have to turn it down. I keep mine on 70 all the time. It was 89 on my way home from work today and I didn't touch the A/C, just turned the fan on 1 click higher.

See if you can find one in Silver Coast. This car looks very rich in this metallic color , and it is not an optional paint either . Shoe

Why not get a 2014 gently used with 20-30000km's and let someone else absorb the depreciation? Still under manufacturers warranty, low mileage and you can get a better equipped model for your money. Take your time and find a white one.

LDYNRWDD, I just did that. from a 2010 premium with 89K still under CPO, to a 2013 Premium, all options still under B2B. Car sticker was almost 60K with Tax. Drove off in a "gently used" saved over $25,000. Just take your time doing the search and get the car exactly the way you want it. Better 25K in my pocket than GM's

That's a smart buyer, Nice Ride. My hubby and I did the same last year with our Escalades. Bought them one year old, 30,000km on each 2013 Platinum ESV and 2013 Platinum short box and saved over $20,000 off new. This is the way to go, get more for your dollar while still having the peace of mind that comes with B2B warranty.

Congrats?

White = lady's version

Black = men's version

You ever notice how white cars are always driven by women? And being a luxury crossover already makes it a little feminine. They might take back your man card. (I'm kidding. Mostly. lol)

Go with whatever you like

Good choice....more difficult to keep clean than a white/light color version but will look sharp for sure! Good luck and enjoy!

I own a black 2015 SRX AWD.I went with the Cila Jet coating.No need for waxing and it protects damage from bird droppings and other contaminates.Check into it.Looks great.

My impression is Caddy doesn't make a lot of the Standard Collection vehicles. It's more of a price come-on to get people in the dealership where they upsell them to Lux, Perf, or Prem.
