2012 Cadillac SRX
2012 Cadillac SRX
The first-generation SRX was a very capable crossover vehicle, but it languished on the sales floor, so Cadillac switched things up with the second-generation SRX in 2010. Gunning directly for the Lexus RX350, Cadillac abandoned rear-wheel drive and launched a new SRX that could be ordered with either front- or four-wheel drive. Its tidier dimensions meant that there was no longer a seven-passenger option, making the new SRX strictly a five-seater. Two years on, the second-generation SRX still trails its Lexus competition but has managed to close the gap considerably. For 2012, Cadillac did away with the previous V-6s -- a 3.0-liter and a turbo 2.8-liter -- and replaced them with an E85-capable, 3.6-liter, direct-injected V-6. The new engine and a new six-speed automatic transmission propel the crossover with ease, although the SRX's hefty 4277-pound curb weight is felt under braking and cornering. The chassis and suspension have also been tweaked, and with either the standard eighteen-inch or optional twenty-inch wheels, the SRX is composed over almost any road surface. The SRX is much sportier than the Lexus, but it won't ever be mistaken for a track-day toy. The SRX is a handsome vehicle, with creased character lines, angular fascia treatments, and tail-fin-reminiscent LED taillights. The cabin mixes supple leather with high-quality plastics and aluminum trim, and its controls are logical and easy to use. Front-wheel drive is standard, and four-wheel drive is available on all but the base model.

With the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety recently upgrading its crash testing and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration thinking of doing the same, crash test results are on people's minds. With more than 60 crossovers already on sale – and at least another half dozen coming in the next twelve months – the not-an-SUV, not-a-car, not-a-wagon segment is being closely watched by customers and manufacturers alike.

Cadillac is determined to reclaim its crown as the world standard of luxury. Helping to do so is its new CUE infotainment system, which is standard on the updated 2013 Cadillac SRX crossover.

If you thought the luxury crossover market was already too crowded, think again. Cadillac may be considering an SUV to battle the BMW X3 and others in its class.

I'm torn about the Cadillac SRX. On one hand, there are the Cadillac's strengths: it finally has a capable and entertaining engine, which provides adequate low-end grunt and sings arias when you stamp on the loud pedal. When you get to a corner, it has plenty of grip, and doesn't roll like one would expect from such a big vehicle. The seats are comfortable, and the on-board tech is pretty good.
