Inside the SRX there's a lot to like, with great front seats, a nice driving position, and a second-row seat that's usable for adults. The seats are firm and well-bolstered, with plenty of legroom and headroom even for larger-than-average drivers; back-seat passengers, meanwhile, might enjoy the huge moonroof that allows a sky view 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's interior design holds up well, even when scrutinizing the details. Materials, fits, and finishes in this vehicle feel as good or better than other vehicles in the class, and the level of detailing closely parallels that of the CTS sport sedan both in design and execution.
The cabin of the 2011 SRX is remarkably 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.
