The SRX luxury SUV straddles the line between compact and midsize luxury SUVs. But no matter where it is positioned, the SRX feels heavy and dated, and gets mediocre fuel economy. Despite a generous 308-hp V6, the SRX feels sluggish and underpowered. That's partly because the smooth six-speed automatic dithers before downshifting. Handling is fairly agile, and the ride is taut yet supple. Very supportive front seats highlight a quiet, well-finished, and high-quality interior. The backseats are snug, and wide roof pillars restrict rear visibility. Cadillac's Cue infotainment system is excessively convoluted, buggy, and difficult to use. Reliability has been average but the SRX scored too low for us to recommend it. A redesigned version, called XT5, has been introduced.
