Cadillac SRX


;Only a few into the 2010 model the all-new Cadillac SRX has added a engine option. Whereas the SRX offered a choice of a V-6 or a V-8, time the choices are V-6 or turbo which seems like the modern solution. Unfortunately, turbo V-6 is something of an underachiever.

turbo’s horsepower and torque are impressive enough: 300 hp and 295 lb-ft of from 2.8 liters. They eclipse the standard, 3.0-liter 265 hp and 223 lb-ft. But one wonders whether of those horses have the corral. There’s a bit of a lag at take-off, and the SRX never feels as lively as an Q5 (despite the Q5’s power and deficit).

Automobile Magazine’s tests that the SRX is a full second to 60 mph (7.6 versus 6.6 seconds); puts it about on par with the RX350, whose larger V-6 is less potent on paper.

A relatively small displacement six by a turbocharger should at least be efficient, but the SRX turbo has nearly the habits of a V-8. Its 15 mpg city, 22 mpg figures both fall of its two major competitors, the Q5 (18/23 and the RX350 (18/24 mpg).

The is also somewhat raspy at although it quiets down underway.

Other aspects of the SRX are more chassis tuning, long a at General Motors. The steering is a not overboosted (despite this luxury ambitions) and very I’d rate it better than the and just ahead of the Lexus. The SRX comes with a sport that included continuously damping, and body motions are controlled, at a cost of a slightly ride.

It’s a similar to what Audi offers in the Q5, the Cadillac seems a bit more

The interior is nicely finished, as in the CTS, the dash has too many flat buttons. The rear is comfortable, only a bit shy on headroom; the floor helps make the position useable. The giant sunroof is standard in all but the very SRX, and it certainly opens up the particularly for rear-seat riders, but it sometimes vibrate when

While other manufacturers use a mesh screen that to effectively block heat or Cadillac has a proper opaque which will be welcome by SRX in the sun belt.

The SRX turbo is available only all-wheel drive and only in the top two (of SRX trim levels. As such, it fairly well loaded every imaginable feature. the aforementioned mega-sunroof and adaptive there’s navigation, a rear-view twenty-inch wheels, park swiveling HID headlamps, keyless with remote start, seats, and an audio system a 10-gig hard drive.

The top-spec, Premium, version includes ventilated front and heated rear seats. My example added a rear-seat system with dual ($1295) and crystal red tintcoat ($995) for a total of $54,475. The itself runs $3820 than an equivalent all-wheel-drive

And in either case, the Premium level is far above the starting of the entry-level (3.0-liter, front-wheel car, at $33,830.
