2015 Cadillac SRX vs. Its Competition

2015 Cadillac SRX
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Deputy Editor

The Cadillac SRX offers more technology for money in comparison to other vehicles in the segment.

The BMW X5 was all-new for last, with more of an emphasis than before on technology and the on-road driving experience.

The BMW X3 might also be considered a rival, but it feels a bit more cramped inside; the fuel-efficient turbo four in the X3 xDrive28i feels perky—perhaps even more so than the SRX in ordinary driving though.

The Volvo is noteworthy in offering the City Safety system, which might help avoid accidents in low-speed driving.

The Mercedes-Benz GLK is more fashionable in most respects, and for 2014 it's offered in a new high-mileage GLK 250 BlueTec guise that makes the SRX seem like a guzzler.

The Lexus RX 350 remains the most popular rival; it's a bit dull and conservative but does everything right from a functionality standpoint.

You'll find more engaging driving dynamics in both the Volvo XC60 and Audi Q5, although they're a bit smaller.
