Like the Mercedes-Benz R-class, the oddly shaped SRX has suffered from a lack of understanding.
"That's a vehicle that, I always thought, looked a little awkward, but, man, I like the way it drives," said Jack Nerad, managing director of Kelley Blue Book's automotive data Web site KBB.com.
The SRX offers the interior space of a mid-size SUV with the handling of a large luxury station wagon.
Note: An earlier version of this story displayed "cash value" amounts that did not reflect what people would actually pay for the vehicles. We are now showing "person-to-person" transaction prices. Dealership asking prices will usually be much higher.
