2010 Cadillac SRX Performance 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
Drove the SRX with 20" wheels and most other options at manufacturer event. GLK, X5 and RX350 were on hand for comparison. The SRX interior was the best hands down. The GLK was dull and the RX350's design is just odd. The simple touch screen nav is easier to use that the Lexus mouse controller. The 3L engine did not feel slow although it was noticeably slower than the Lexus with its 3.5L V6. That said, the SRX felt much more buttoned down than the Lexus and on par with the GLK. The backseat offered vents with climate control which the Lexus lacks. Also, the door panels were of superior quality to the Lexus. Did not sample X5 because it was so much more expensive than the others.
Interior design, pop up nav screen, rear seat ammenities, styling, BOSE 5.1 stereo, LCD screen in the gauge cluster, brakes, material quality.
3L is adequate for city driving but will not offer ample passing power.
