Safety, Reliability & Mileage

The Cadillac SRX is an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Pick, meaning it received the top rating, Good, in front, side and rear crash tests, as well as a roof-strength test. For the roof-strength test, the roof must withstand the force of four times the vehicle's weight in a rollover.

The SRX also has antilock brakes and an electronic stability system, which is a required safety feature on all vehicles, beginning with the 2012 model year. For a list of all the SRX's safety features, click here.

The Cadillac SRX is predicted to have average reliability. Mileage varies between two- and four-wheel-drive versions. With two-wheel drive, the SRX is rated 17/24 mpg city/highway. Four-wheel-drive models get 16/23 mpg. The flex-fuel SRX can also run on E85 ethanol, on which the two drivelines earn 12/18 mpg and 12/17 mpg, respectively.

The ratings don't sound great in the era of 40-mpg compact cars, but the SRX compares respectably with competitors such as the Acura MDX, the Lexus RX 350 and the Lincoln MKX, as you can see here.
