The look of 2011 Cadillac SRX is quite different than the tall, longer, and narrower model it replaced last year; to most eyes, the SRX looks much better balanced. The SUV has an angular grille and vertically arranged headlights that give it familiar look that's not an exact copy of its siblings. It's dramatic, more so than the Lexus RX.
The SRX has a powerful line drawn down its side, from the front wheel all the way to its taillights. Those taillights tip back slightly, and look almost like mini-tailfins. Unlike the real Cadillac fins of the Fifties, these pieces help the SRX cut through the air more easily. The SRX also has a spoiler integrated to the rear roof that smooths the airflow at the end of the vehicle. Cadillac offers both 18- and 20-inch wheels on the SRX.
Inside the SRX cockpit, the dash is covered in hand-assembled leather. The audio and climate controls live on the center stack in an easy-to-understand layout. Navigation is an option and it displays on a screen that rises from the dash.
