I've seen a lot of these new SRXs on the road recently and for good reason; it's a stylish Cadillac SUV with ample room for passengers that doesn't demand the space of the attention-seeking Escalade. I really like the exterior styling compared to the previous generation SRX; specifically the tall vertical taillights that stick out from the rear hatch, which remind me of those found on cars in the 1950s.
It's interesting that almost everyone wrote something about the powertrain; it was the first thing I noticed about the SRX turbo. It really doesn't deliver the thrill of a turbocharged vehicle. I agree with Rusty, in that I haven't been in a modern turbocharged car with this much lag. Perhaps I set my standards too high when I heard the words "Cadillac" and "turbo" in the same sentence.
