2011 Cadillac SRX Review

Cadillac SRX / Reviews / 2011 Cadillac SRX Review

Smaller and less expensive than its predecessor, Cadillac's redesigned SRX moves squarely into the entry-luxury crossover segment — a corner of the market that luxury carmakers are fast descending upon. The SRX is certainly worth a look, particularly if you're partial to its styling. In a lot of ways in which competitors go the distance, however, Cadillac merely makes the grade. These days, I'm not sure that cuts it.

A five-seater, the SRX is available with front-wheel drive in base, Luxury, Performance and Premium trim levels; click here to compare it with the 2009 SRX. All-wheel drive is optional on all but the base trim. A normally aspirated 3.0-liter V-6 is standard, with a turbocharged 2.8-liter V-6 available next year in all-wheel-drive Performance and Premium editions. We tested an all-wheel-drive, 3.0-liter SRX Performance.
