The 2013 Cadillac SRX gets a number of minor changes throughout, but it's worth skipping right to the instrument panel, where GM has a host of industry exclusive features in its groundbreaking new CUE (Cadillac User Experience) infotainment system.
More like an iPad or tablet for your car than anything yet in a mass-market new vehicle, CUE connects phones and media players along with navigation and information features, through a bright capacitative touch screen. In addition, the system has haptic feedback, to give your finger some feedback when you're navigating through menus or swiping items, along with proximity sensing that enables menus to offer up choices as your hand approaches.
Otherwise, the changes to the SRX for 2013 aren't at all groundbreaking. There's a new grille with more detail, as well as a somewhat new headlight design, revised fender vents, and new opera lights alongside. And inside, the 2013 SRX gets active noise cancellation, along with a few other new trims and touches.
Last year, the SRX's powertrain was updated, bringing a new 308-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 and six-speed automatic transmission (you can find our first drive of the SRX 3.6 here). Front- or all-wheel drive versions remain available.
We're eager to drive the 2013 SRX, and especially to try CUE. Watch the walkaround here, then check back for our first observations and full review, and in the meantime head to MotorAuthority's New York Auto Show hub to browse through all of our recent coverage from the show floor.
