Sleeker, Smaller

The new SRX shares the current, second-generation Cadillac CTS sedan's windswept style and friendlier face, just as the outgoing SRX emulated the sharp creases and upright angles of the first-generation CTS.

In an industry where redesigns typically add weight and size, Cadillac made the new SRX significantly smaller. It's slightly wider than before, but it's length drops 4.7 inches and it's 2.1 inches shorter. Gone are options like a third-row seat and a V-8 engine, moving the SRX out of the territory occupied by the BMW X5 and Volvo XC90.
