For traditional luxury or high-tech connectivity, the 2014 Cadillac SRX has a strong set of features, including a great collection of entertainment and active-safety extras. And you have a lot of choice in interior appointments, with some plush upgrades if you check the right option boxes and have a little more room in the budget.
A new infotainment interface is dubbed CUE, for Cadillac User Experience. The touchscreen system can be controlled by voice, by steering-wheel controls, and by proximity and touch/swipe/pinch gestures on its 8-inch screen. The system offers haptic clues when you press on its surface, but it's not as predictable or as familiar as ordinary switches and buttons. Behind the touchscreen, Cadillac's hidden a storage chamber for electronic devices. Bluetooth connectivity and HD radio are a part of the system.
Upper SRX trims get standard adaptive headlights, a power tailgate, automatic climate control, and a rear-seat DVD entertainment system.
The most expensive SRX Premium crossover has Bose audio, ventilated and heated front seats, navigation, heated side mirrors, heated rear seats and steering wheel, special wood interior trim, rear-seat audio controls, adjustable pedals, and remote start.
Even base versions have a lot of standard equipment, including power features, keyless entry, satellite radio, and Bluetooth with audio streaming.
