The 2010 Cadillac SRX won't be available on dealer lots until this August, and apparently the folks at GM's luxury division are reluctant to let either NHTSA or the IIHS get their hands on pre-production models for crash testing. Despite the dearth of crash-test data, the 2010 Cadillac SRX scores well in the safety category thanks to its impressive list of standard safety features.

Cadillac has not struggled recently in crash tests, and the 2009 Cadillac SRX scored a mix of four- and five-star ratings from NHTSA, so the editors at TheCarConnection.com don't expect any major negative surprises once the results become official. Stay tuned to TheCarConnection.com for the latest updates on crash-test results for the new Cadillac SRX.

Under the skin of the 2010 Cadillac SRX you'll find a wealth of safety features that work in unison to keep occupants safe and sound. ConsumerGuide reviewers report that "available safety features include ABS, traction control, [and] antiskid system." (TheCarConnection.com notes for clarity that those features are standard.) Cars.com adds that the Cadillac SRX's crash protection includes "front airbags, side-impact airbags for the front seats and curtain airbags that cover all the side windows." Even the SRX Cadillac's structure provides a significant degree of protection, as TheCarConnection.com's editors point out it is forged with Martensitic steel, one of the strongest grades available. Rounding out the list of safety features, Motor Trend states that "Cadillac plans to offer a backup camera screen in the rearview mirror for SRXes ordered without navigation," while those SRX Cadillacs navigation get the camera readout on the nav screen.

One quick glance at the 2010 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 SRX Cadillac has a few features to help compensate for the obstructions. Car and Driver says that, "although the stubby backlight and huge C-pillars do damage to the rear three-quarter view, the side mirrors are huge," and the aforementioned rearview camera certainly helps during parking lot reversals. Visibility ahead is aided by the "adaptive headlights," which Cars.com says "swivel in the direction of a turn" and are offered as an optional feature on all 2010 Cadillac SRXes.

Conclusion

A large number of safety features keep the 2010 Cadillac SRX at the top of the safety class in the crossover segment.

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.
