Introduction
The 2014 Cadillac SRX is a compact luxury crossover SUV that seats 5 passengers. It competes against the Acura RDX, Audi Q5, BMW X1 and X3, Infiniti QX50 and QX70, Lexus RX, Lincoln MKX, Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, Volkswagen Touareg, and Volvo XC60.

Models and Features
The 2014 SRX is offered in a standard level of specification, or with a \"collection\" of equipment under the names Luxury, Performance, and Premium.

Choosing the Luxury collection adds leather seats, heated front seats, heated steering wheel, 8-way power front passenger's seat, thigh adjuster for the driver's seat, power-adjustable pedals, and memory for the driver's settings. The cabin gets ambient lighting as well as an air filter and a humidity sensor for the climate control system, and Keyless Access passive entry is standard for this version.

Additionally, the Luxury collection model is equipped with remote engine starting, a panoramic sunroof, power rear liftgate, front and rear park-assist sensors, reversing camera, rain-sensing wipers, rear cross-traffic alert system, and a side blind-zone alert system. The SRX Luxury collection rolls on machined-finish 18-inch aluminum wheels, and has chrome roof rails, a cargo management system, rear cargo shade, power-folding exterior mirrors with auto-dimming glass on the driver's side, auto-dimming rearview mirror, universal garage door opener, and genuine wood interior trim.

The SRX Performance collection adds a navigation system, premium surround-sound system, variable-effort steering, HID headlights with washers, an adaptive forward-lighting system, fog lights, and 20-inch aluminum wheels. At the top of the lineup, the SRX Premium collection contains ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, triple-zone automatic climate control, and a Driver Awareness package of safety features.

Options and Packages
If you seek something more than all-wheel drive, premium paint, and a handful of dealer-installed extras, you'll need to purchase the 2014 SRX Luxury collection model at a minimum.

In addition to those upgrades, the Luxury collection model can be specified with a greater variety of interior colors, chrome wheels, trailering equipment, navigation system, premium surround-sound audio system, and a rear-seat entertainment system. This version of the SRX can also be upgraded with a Driver Awareness package (lane-departure warning, forward-collision warning, Safety Alert Seat, Intellibeam headlights) or a Driver Alert package (Driver Awareness package plus full-speed-range adaptive cruise control, Front and Rear Automatic Braking, Automatic Collision Preparation).

The SRX Performance collection is offered with a choice of three different 20-inch wheel designs, plus the trailering equipment, rear-seat entertainment system, and safety upgrades available for the Luxury collection model. Options for the SRX Premium collection are the same as the Performance collection, except this model comes standard with the Driver Awareness package.

Under the Hood
Cadillac offers a single engine in the 2014 SRX--a 3.6-liter V-6 rated to produce 308 horsepower at 6,800 rpm and 265 lb.-ft. of torque at 2,400 rpm. A 6-speed automatic transmission transfers power to the front wheels. All-wheel drive (AWD) is optional. The transmission includes a driver-selected Eco mode designed to improve fuel economy.

Fuel Economy
According to the EPA, the 2014 SRX gets 17 mpg in the city, 24 mpg on the highway, and 19 mpg in combined driving. Add the optional AWD system, and those figures drop to 16 mpg city/23 mpg highway and 18 mpg in combined driving.

Safety Ratings and Technology
In crash tests performed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the 2014 SRX receives a 5-star overall rating, the highest possible score. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has not rated the crashworthiness of the SRX as this overview was written.

All 2014 SRX models, except the base version, are equipped with rain-sensing wipers, a reversing camera, rear cross-traffic alert system, and a side blind-zone alert system. The Performance collection model adds HID headlights with an adaptive forward-lighting system that swivels the lights to help illuminate around dark corners.

Luxury and Performance collection models can be optioned with a Driver Awareness package containing new Intellibeam automatic high-beam and auto-dimming headlights, a lane-departure warning system, forward-collision warning system, and something called a Safety Alert Seat that vibrates when it senses that the SRX is wandering from its lane or there is danger ahead.

These two models are also available with a Driver Alert package, which is standard for the Premium collection. This group of safety technologies includes the Driver Awareness package and enhances it with a full-speed-range adaptive cruise control system, Automatic Collision Preparation, and Front and Rear Automatic Braking.
