From Edmunds: Thanks to some improvements this year, the 2012 Cadillac SRX is a more well-rounded and appealing luxury crossover. Vehicle overview When it debuted two years ago, the Cadillac SRX was a bit of an underachiever. We described it as competent but far from class-leading. Thankfully, Cadillac has made a number of changes this year to make the 2012 SRX a more appealing luxury crossover SUV. As before, the compact SRX's styling is still a real head-turner and unmistakably Cadillac. The comfortable interior is equally attractive and filled with many desirable features, including some that aren't even offered on competing models. The SRX is also pleasant to drive, with confident handling and a composed and quiet ride. There's more to like for the 2012 Cadillac SRX, too. In prior years, the SRX came with either an underwhelming base 3.0-liter V6 or a more satisfying but expensive turbocharged 2.8-liter V6 upgrade. Now both have been replaced by a 308-horsepower 3.8-liter V6. This is certainly good news, as you no longer have to pay top dollar to get the best engine. And as before, the SRX is offered in both front-drive and all-wheel-drive variants. On the downside, though, Cadillac wasn't able to address one prior problem with the SRX: weight. A good candidate for The Biggest Loser, the SRX is about 200-300 pounds heavier than most competitors. That might not seem like much, but it does negatively impact everything from acceleration to handling. Other SRX drawbacks are still there, too, including tight rear-seat headroom and poor outward visibility. All things considered, though, the SRX is a more competitive vehicle this year, and its inherent strengths of classy styling and abundant features shine more readily. We would still suggest checking out other top crossovers such as the Audi Q5, BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLK350 and Volvo XC60, as they aren't as compromised in terms of practicality and are superior to the Cadillac in a few other areas as well. But the 2012 Cadillac SRX is finally the vehicle it should have been two years ago. 2012 Cadillac SRX models The 2012 Cadillac SRX is a compact luxury crossover SUV available in four trim levels, including Base, Luxury, Performance and Premium. The base model comes equipped with 18-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, roof rails, keyless entry, remote engine start, dual-zone automatic climate control, leatherette premium vinyl upholstery, an eight-way power driver seat, a reclining and 60/40 split-folding rear seat, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, cruise control, OnStar, Bluetooth and an eight-speaker Bose stereo with a CD player, satellite radio, an auxiliary audio input jack and an iPod/USB audio interface. Move up to the SRX Luxury and you get front and rear parking sensors, power-folding outside mirrors with driver-side auto-dimming, automatic wipers, a panoramic sunroof, keyless ignition/entry and a power liftgate with adjustable maximum height. Inside there's leather upholstery, driver seat adjustable thigh support, an eight-way power passenger seat, heated front seats and steering wheel, driver memory functions, power-adjustable pedals, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, interior accent lighting, the U-Rail cargo management system and a rearview camera. Options include a voice-activated navigation system with real-time traffic and a 10-speaker Bose surround-sound audio system with iPod/USB interface and digital music storage. The Performance model adds 20-inch alloy wheels, a sport-tuned suspension and adaptive dampers (all-wheel drive only), upgraded steering, adaptive xenon headlights, foglamps, the navigation system and the Bose surround-sound audio system. The top-of-the-line SRX Premium brings a few extra goodies, including tri-zone climate control, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats and rear seat audio controls. A rear-seat DVD entertainment system with dual seatback-mounted screens is available on all but the base model. 2012 Highlights For the 2012 Cadillac SRX, a new 3.6-liter V6 replaces both of the previous engine choices. The six-speed automatic transmission also gains a fuel-saving Eco mode. In terms of features, Bluetooth is now standard, while a heated steering wheel is standard on all trims except the base SRX. Cadillac says it also retuned the suspension and added more sound insulation for a more comfortable and quiet ride. Performance & mpg For 2012, the Cadillac SRX gets a 3.6-liter V6 engine that puts out 308 hp and 265 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic is the only transmission offered. Front-wheel drive is standard and all wheel drive is available as an option. At our test track, an SRX Performance FWD sprinted to 60 mph in 7.1 seconds, a fairly quick time for the segment. In terms of fuel economy, the SRX is a little below average, with an EPA-estimated 17 mpg city/24 mpg highway and 19 mpg combined for front-drive models and 16/23/18 for AWD. Cadillac says using the new Eco mode can improve fuel economy by up to 1 mpg. Properly equipped, the SRX can tow up to 3,500 pounds. Safety The 2012 Cadillac SRX comes standard with antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, front side airbags, side curtain airbags and OnStar. In Edmunds brake testing, An SRX Performance FWD came to a stop from 60 mph in 120 feet, a solid number in this class. In crash testing by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the SRX received the top rating of Good in the frontal-offset, side-impact and roof strength tests. - INSTALLED FEATURES: Front air conditioning zones: dual, Front air conditioning: automatic climate control, Humidity/dewpoint sensors, Rear air conditioning zones: single, Rear air conditioning: automatic climate control, Airbag deactivation: occupant sensing passenger, Front airbags: dual, Side airbags: front, Side curtain airbags: front, Antenna type: diversity, Auxiliary audio input: USB, Hard drive: 40GB, In-Dash CD: DVD audio, Premium brand: Bose, Radio data system, Radio: AM/FM, Rear audio: separate, Satellite radio: SiriusXM, Subwoofer: 1, Surround sound: 5.1, Total speakers: 10, ABS: 4-wheel, Braking assist, Electronic brakeforce distribution, Front brake diameter: 13.6, Front brake type: ventilated disc, Front brake width: 1.2, Rear brake diameter: 12.4, Rear brake type: ventilated disc, Rear brake width: 0.9, Armrests: front center, Center console trim: wood, Door sill trim: illuminated scuff plate, Door trim: wood, Floor mat material: carpet, Floor mats: front, Heated steering wheel, Shift knob trim: wood, Steering wheel trim: leather, Adjustable pedals: power, Cargo cover: retractable, Center console: front console with armrest and storage, Cruise control, Cupholders: front, Memorized settings: 2 driver, Multi-function remote: keyless entry, One-touch windows: 4, Overhead console: front, Power steering: variable/speed-proportional, Rearview mirror: auto-dimming, Remote engine start, Retained accessory power, Steering wheel mounted controls: audio, Steering wheel: tilt and telescopic, Storage: in floor, Universal remote transmitter: Homelink - garage door opener, Vanity mirrors: dual illuminating, Liftgate window: fixed, Rear door type: power liftgate, 4WD type: full time, Axle ratio: 3.39, Alternator: 150 amps, Battery saver, Battery: maintenance-free, Door handle color: chrome, Exhaust tip color: chrome, Exhaust: dual tip, Front bumper color: body-color, Grille color: chrome surround, Mirror color: body-color, Rear bumper color: body-color, Window trim: chrome, Driver information system, Gauge: tachometer, Warnings and reminders: lamp failure low fuel engine oil coolant, Daytime running lights, Exterior entry lights, Front fog lights, Headlight cleaners: high pressure washers, Headlights: HID/Xenon, Side mirror adjustments: power, Side mirrors: driver side auto-dimming, Moonroof / Sunroof: one-touch open/close, Roof rails, Roof rails color: silver, Camera system: rearview, Child safety door locks, Child seat anchors: LATCH system, Parking sensors: front, Rearview monitor, Front seatbelts: 3-point, Rear seatbelts: 3-point, Seatbelt pretensioners: front, Driver seat power adjustments: lumbar, Driver seat: heated, Front headrests: adjustable, Front seat type: bucket, Passenger seat power adjustments: lumbar, Passenger seat: heated, Rear headrests: adjustable, Rear seat folding: split, Rear seat manual adjustments: reclining, Rear seat: heated, Upholstery: leather, 2-stage unlocking doors, Anti-theft system: engine immobilizer, Power door locks, Stability control, Traction control, Steering ratio: 16.5, Turns lock-to-lock: 2.8, Front shock type: gas, Front spring type: coil, Front stabilizer bar, Front struts: MacPherson, Front suspension classification: independent, Front suspension type: lower control arms, Rear shock type: gas, Rear stabilizer bar, Rear suspension classification: independent, Rear suspension type: multi-link, Suspension control: electronic, Tuned suspension: sport, Navigation system: hard drive, Satellite communications: OnStar, Wireless data link: Bluetooth, Spare tire kit: inflator kit, Tire Pressure Monitoring System, Tire type: all season, Wheel spokes: 7, Wheels: painted alloy, Front wipers: rain sensing, Laminated glass, Power windows, Solar-tinted glass: front, Window defogger: rear
