Bruce Nunnally Posted December 31, 2009 Report Share Posted December 31, 2009 The CTS sedan has been a great success for Cadillac, garnering much praise from the automotive media. So it's no wonder that the 2010 Cadillac SRX leans heavily on the same cabin tech and bold design features that made the CTS so popular. In many ways, the new SRX looks like the CTS on stilts. When this small SUV arrived in our garage, we were pleased to find cabin tech similar to what we liked so much in the CTS. There was the same LCD that partially stows itself in the dash, leaving a strip visible to show audio information. There was the hard-drive-based navigation system with traffic. The car even comes with the record button that saves radio broadcasts, essentially it works like TiVo for radio. In sum In evaluating the 2010 Cadillac SRX, we give it good marks for its modern power train composed of a direct-injection engine and six-speed-automatic transmission. However, it didn't turn in particularly great fuel economy rating. There is also a lot we like about this car's cabin tech, the navigation system being a particular high point. However, its Bluetooth phone system let us down and its lack of significant driver aid technology keeps it from excellence. The SRX's design really stands out--Cadillac has definitely made its mark with its Art and Science design language. However, we have to ding it a bit for its sometimes confusing cabin tech interface. http://reviews.cnet.com/suv/2010-cadillac-...l?tag=mncol;txt Bruce 2016 Cadillac ATS-V gray/black Follow me on: Twitter Instagram Youtube Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
