Whether you want traditional luxury, or high-tech connectivity or entertainment, the 2012 Cadillac SRX has a strong set of features.
All 2012 SRX models includes keyless entry, cruise control, heated mirrors, steering-wheel audio controls, and a CD/MP3 sound system with XM Satellite Radio, plus a lot more. Bluetooth compatibility is standard, as is OnStar's turn-by-turn navigation service for buyers who do not opt for the car's navigation system option. Over a couple of recent driving experiences, the hands-free system has worked well.
Luxury Collection, Performance Collection and Premium Collection models add many more features, including three-zone climate control; adaptive forward lighting that swivels the headlamps in sync with vehicle steering; a power liftgate with adjustable height setting (it won't hit your garage door if opened while parked inside); an integrated hard disc drive for audio storage; and a dual-screen video system for rear entertainment.
Top Premium Collection models include navigation, Bose surround audio, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, heated mirrors, a heated steering wheel, a Sapele wood-trimmed interior, remote start, tri-zone climate control, rear-seat audio controls, adjustable pedals, fog lamps, and rain-sensing wipers. By clicking a few option boxes, though, you can drive the bottom-line price well above $50k.
The 2012 Cadillac SRX is every bit a premium vehicle, and even repeat luxury shoppers will find the feature list bountiful.
