The 2011 Cadillac SRX doesn't have the third-row seats that have almost become requisite in this class; however it's one of the better interiors among luxury crossovers. It has very good front seats with lots of support, a good driving position, and second-row seats that adults won't fear. The front seats have thick bolsters and firm cushions, and the SRX doles out lots of head and leg room even for bigger drivers. Rear-seat passengers might like the huge moonroof that opens up a view of the sky above.
Crossovers, or CUVs, aren't meant to be driven off-road, so their utility is measured more in terms of available cargo space for weekend Costco runs. In this regard, the 2011 Cadillac SRX is as useful as just about any other crossover on the road. The 60/40-split back seat can fold flat, and a power liftgate and an cargo-anchor system are on the options list.
The SRX holds up well to the magnifying glass, in terms of interior quality and fit and finish. The level of attention rivals that in the CTS sport sedan, in execution and in design.
The SRX cabin is well-hushed, with wind, road, and powertrain noise all well-muted. Ride quality isn't pillowy soft, but it's well muted while maintaining enough firmness for crisp handling control.
