SAFETY | 10 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

‘Good,’ frontal offset; ‘good,’ side impact, ‘good,’ rear impact; 'good,' roof strength; Top Safety Pick 'Superior,' front crash prevention

Five stars, frontal and side impact; five stars overall

The 2014 SRX should rank high among safety-conscious shoppers, as it has some of the most impressive safety features in its class, plus top ratings for occupant protection. 

It's earned top five-star ratings from the federal government as well as Top Safety Pick status from the IIHS. And last year Cadillac added an array of radar-, camera-, and sensor-based safety systems, including adaptive cruise control, cross traffic alert, a safety alert seat, and automatic front and rear braking assist. For 2014 Cadillac has added its Intellibeam headlamps as part of the Driver Awareness Package.

The SRX's forward collision prevention systems were also among the top-rated ones on the market, as tested by the IIHS; it was one of just seven models to earn the new 'superior' rating in the IIHS front crash prevention ratings.

Head-curtain side airbags, front seat-mounted side airbags, and OnStar roadside and emergency assistance are included in all SRX models, as well as stability control and anti-lock brakes. Also, an available adaptive headlight system helps illuminate around dark corners. And structurally, the SRX is one of only a few vehicles, according to GM, to use Martensitic steel, one of the strongest available, to help prevent against intrusion in a side impact.

We do caution that there's one issue: Take a look over your shoulder and note outward visibility. There are front and rear parking sensors, and a rear camera system, but depending on your height lane changes might not be so confident.

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.
