The SRX’ base price also includes a 10 speaker Bose 5.1 Surround Sound system with links to an AUX jack, and a USB port, so you can source your entertainment as you like, with a free 3 month subscription to XM satellite radio added to the mix. Our SRX also included an optional $1,395 dual rear DVD entertainment system which provides headphones and remote control for back seat passengers. All 5 riders are well looked after, with heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and a heated steering wheel for the driver. Although direct rear vision is somewhat occluded due to the SRX’ down swept roofline and small back window, Cadillac includes a standard backup camera which displays its image on the Navigation screen when Reverse gear is engaged. Interior spaciousness also benefits from a huge and standard “Ultraview Power Sunroof” which consists of a sliding front section, a fixed rear section, and a separately controlled sliding interior cover. With both roofs unmasked, the effect is almost like riding in a convertible.
Thanks to its newly available V6 power source, bevy of amenities, and sound Caddy construction, the SRX AWD is a valuable addition to the Cadillac line’s Premium Collection. While it doesn’t offer the gas-sucking horsepower of the SVT, the SRX has more than enough punch to lay down reputable passes on a two-lane highway. Because its standard amenity list is so long, its option list is blissfully short. Now that’s a sure formula to keep the bottom line affordable.
