Silk suit, black tie,
I don’t need a reason why.

Although generally I am not a huge fan of aftermarket chrome, the SRX pic above does look good to me.  Cadillac is moving in this same direction with chrome accents.  Tasteful chrome touches — especially with contrasting colors like the Crystal Red Tintcoat — certainly ‘pop’.

Re: Powersteering – 2010 Cadillac SRX |

Photo: did a nice summary review of the new 2010 Cadillac SRX:

Ripping pages from the play books of BMW and Lexus, Cadillac layers its trademark Art and Science design cues over a new, smaller, more athletic SRX for 2010. The previous version of the SRX didn’t strike a chord with the luxury SUV buying public, if sales are a reliable indicator. Equipped with a long wheelbase and impressive road manners, the first-generation SRX could be equipped with a third-row seat and an optional V-8 engine. But now, as environmental responsibility and tough new EPA fuel economy standards are affecting vehicle design and engineering, and as Cadillac creates a portfolio of globally viable models, the redesigned 2010 SRX is downsized. It can carry up to five passengers in a cabin trimmed with upscale materials, like BMW and Lexus. It offers a firm ride, quick steering, and athletic handling, like BMW. And based on the performance of the previous SRX, this new model’s predicted reliability score is better than most vehicles on the market, like Lexus. Powersteering – 2010 Cadillac SRX |

I think they really get that the new SRX is well tuned to its target market, and the early terrific sales numbers reflect that.  If you want an SRX, you need to get one on order.  They are great looking vehicles inside and out.

The photo model, in Crystal Red Tintcoat, is one of my favorite Cadillac colors.  The base color is red, and the clearcoat is also tinted red, which adds to the depth & luster.  It is a premium Cadillac color available at extra cost, but well worth it.

Canadian Driver has a thoughtful test drive article about the 2010 Cadillac SRX here:

The SRX is a well-sorted luxury crossover. As with most Cadillacs, the look is polarizing; an Audi Q5 will find more fans in the middle-of-the-road looks camp, but this Caddy is definitely one of the most distinctive-looking vehicles in this class.

Such subjectivities aside, this second-generation SRX is, overall, a far better fit in the entry-luxury crossover segment than its odd-duck precedessor. Some of its competitors are prettier, and others sportier, but what’s most impressive is that Cadillac has created a very good crossover that manages to feel just a little bit different than anything else in the class, and it deserves a look for that reason alone.

The new Cadillac SRX is a great design for many in its target audience.  The interior and exterior look luxurious.  It has good power, and good fuel economy.  The things it needs to be and to do for the people who need this type of vehicle it appears to be and do very well.

One of the features that some are missing is that this capable SRX corners as well as a sedan.
