Like much of Cadillac's lineup, the 2014 SRX is chiseled and squared-off at the corners, with a look that's distinctive, and really different than anything else on the market if you go by design details. Inside especially, the SRX strikes out on its own path, with details and an overarching design that are uniquely Cadillac.
The SRX doesn't have the panache or the gargantuan presence of the big Escalade, but it's a tidy fit with other luxury crossover SUVs. It's less a cookie-cutter vehicle than the Lexus RX. It's more sculpted, more dramatic, and more finely chiseled at the ends. The proportions aren't ideal, but the SRX has no boring angles.
The cockpit got a refresh in the SRX last year and received the CUE interface and its touchscreen. That screen sits front and center on the console. It has slide controls and proximity-sensing surfaces instead of switches and buttons. That plus the ambient lighting and supple leather on the dash give the SRX a tech-forward, but rich, appearance.
