Whether you want traditional luxury, or high-tech connectivity or entertainment, the Cadillac SRX has a strong set of features. And for 2013, with the addition of the new Cadillac User Experience (CUE) interface, and a revised set of steering-wheel and instrument-panel controls to match, the SRX offers one of the most advanced interiors on the market.
CUE includes a large, high-contrast touch screen, with a special set of capacitive (touch-sensitive) controls just below for audio and climate control. The panel with those controls is motorized and can slide out of the way to reveal a 'hidden' bin for smartphones or other smaller items. Also included is a new set of steering-wheel controls, as well as a reconfigurable gauge layout, and voice commands help make many simple tasks easier. The system can connect up to ten Bluetooth-enabled mobile devices.
Keyless entry, cruise control, heated mirrors, steering-wheel audio controls, and a CD/MP3 sound system with XM Satellite Radio remain among the many standard features on the SRX. 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.
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.
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.
