2014 Cadillac SRX vs. Its Competition

2014 Cadillac SRX
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Deputy Editor

The Cadillac SRX is now a step ahead on in-vehicle technology than most other entries in this class—especially for the price.

The Lexus RX 350 remains the most popular rival; it's a bit dull and conservative but does everything right from a functionality standpoint.

You'll find more engaging driving dynamics in both the Volvo XC60 and Audi Q5, although they're a bit smaller.

The Volvo is noteworthy in offering the City Safety system, which might help avoid accidents in low-speed driving.

The Mercedes-Benz GLK is more fashionable in most respects, and for 2014 it's offered in a new high-mileage GLK 250 BlueTec guise that makes the SRX seem like a guzzler.

The BMW X3 might also be considered a rival, but it feels a bit more cramped inside; the fuel-efficient turbo four in the X3 xDrive28i feels perky—perhaps even more so than the SRX in ordinary driving though.

BMW X5 is all-new for 2014, with more of an emphasis than before on technology and the on-road driving experience.
