The 2011 Cadillac SRX comes with all the safety features that you'd expect in a luxury crossover, and crash tests have shown its occupant protection to be excellent. Head-curtain side airbags, front seat-mounted side airbags, safety belts with dual pretensioners and load limiters, and OnStar are included in all SRX models.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has tested the SRX and given it top 'good' ratings in all categories, along with its Top Safety Pick designation, which ranks the SRX among the safest new vehicles. It hasn't yet been tested by the federal government, however.

The SRX also introduces the use of Martensitic steel, one of the strongest available. It helps protect against intrusion during a side impact, while also maintaining the structure during front and rear crashes.

One quick glance at the Cadillac SRX is enough to realize that driver visibility isn't the best in the crossover segment; the rear styling is light on glass and heavy on sheetmetal, but the rear-view mirror—now standard for 2011—helps with that during parking-lot maneuvers. The adaptive headlight system, another option, helps illuminate around dark corners.

Conclusion

With outward visibility one of the only exceptions, the 2011 Cadillac SRX provides top-notch safety features and occupant protection.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
