Remember the commercial...when you turn your car on, does it return the favor? This one does! Couldn't quite pull off the luxury package so we got the base and I do love it. Loved it from afar from the first time I saw it. My only issue is blind spots...they take a bit to get used to. If I had to do it over, would have for sure gotten the rear camera. Even with the base model, it is quite luxurious. Great interior, easy to use and fun to drive. Great gas mileage around town (over 17) and handles well in the snow and ice. Feels sturdy when driving - we drove a few of the competitors which felt light weight and unstable - this one just felt safer when driving. Interior - the black seemed to be the only model that had "matching" interior. Did not care for one color dash, different color seats, different color carpet...then the wood accents...a little too pimpy for this lady. Went with the black...black seats, dash and carpet and carbon fiber (rather than wood) and that did the trick.
2014 Cadillac SRX Luxury 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
Really enjoy my 2014 SRX Luxury, especially like the safety features with side sensors and front and back. Takes a little getting used to but I have found I am becoming more and more dependent on all these safety features. I had a a fairly new SUV and found on the highway it was not as safe on long trips so traded up to the SRX Luxury, haven't regretted my move.... Have owned many luxury cars over the years, including Cadillacs, but this is my new favorite.
Safety features, especially sensors on side of vehicles as well as front and back. When parking the vehicle it makes a great difference, as well as driving on the freeways changing lanes......
Maybe a little better gas mileage. Wish that there were other alternatives for satellite radio and other offerings for directions etc.
I have driven my SRX for 2 months and am very pleased. This is my first Cadillac, and I am very impressed with this brand. I get above 17 mpg driving in-town. The rear window is smaller than the one in my former, larger SUV, but with the SRX's rear view camera, this has not been problematic.
Design a place for a purse! If I have a passenger, my purse must go to the back seat.
Your view to the rear is very poor. The back up camera is a necessity. The front seats are uncomfortable. My in town gas milage is below 15 mpg. The on board computer system is very fancy with a lot of Wow factor
but it is very difficult to learn and is slow to respond. It is very difficult to make any adjustment while driving
