2011 Cadillac SRX Safety

10
On Safety
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.

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

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.
