SAFETY | 8 out of 10
Four stars, front impacts; five stars, side impacts
“Good,” front impact; side impact not rated
Nearly all of the most important safety features that protect passengers in a crash or help to avoid a collision are standard in all 2009 Cadillac SRX trims.
Cars.com reports that anti-lock brakes, stability control, and side and curtain airbags are standard on the SRX. MyRide.com notes "four-wheel-vented-disc ABS with Dynamic Rear Proportioning (DRP) included on every Cadillac SRX."
In federal testing at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the SRX was awarded four stars for front impact protection and five stars for side impact protection. Two-wheel-drive versions earned a rollover rating of three stars, but four-wheel drive lowered their center of mass slightly to earn a better four stars.
A “good” rating was awarded to the SRX for front impacts from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, but it didn’t test the crossover for side-impact safety.
The 2009 Cadillac SRX earns good crash-test scores and comes with many safety systems standard.
