Interactive Review:
2011 Cadillac SRX Turbo Premium

Posted Image

While I get caught up writing the reviews for the 2011 Cadillac CTS Coupe, a 2011 GMC Acadia Denali, and the 2011 Ford Fiesta. They finally sent me a Cadillac in the only proper color for the car and I have to say the look has really grown on me. Think up some questions about this 2011 Cadillac SRX Turbo Premium AWD.

I'm pretty sure somebody in the Oldsmoboi household has been itching to try out the SRX. What are that person's impressions of the vehicle?

His opinion - Do. Want.

He'll skip the Turbo though.... he's been driving a 160hp 4-cylinder with a 4-speed auto and AWD.... anything is a step up in power at this point.

It is the same engine as the 9-4x, I'll have to research more to find out if it's the same as the 9-5 and 9-3x

You know, I'm not so sure. On initial inspection, build quality seems VERY high. I would actually rate this interior above the CTS.



edit: certainly higher quality than my spelling... sheesh..

I'm going to have to go to the BMW and Benz dealer to find out.

I'll say this, it feels exactly like a small Cadillac crossover should. Fast, handles decent (so far, haven't pushed it hard yet) feels luxurious, looks it too.

Is it just respectable quick or is it truly quick? The 4900 lb BMW X5 4.4 puts out just 15 more hp and 30 lbs more torque but will run a 15 flat to high 14 second 1/4 mile time. Motor Trend only got a measly 15.9 sec 1/4 mile time with the 2.8 turbo SRX.... that is horrible. It's even 300 lbs lighter than the X5. It should run at LEAST a 15 flat 1/4 time.

Also, my frusterations with the rest of the GM brands, is that when you have leather seats, only the seating surface on the front and middle seating surface on the second row seats are truly leather... the rest is vinyl. Is the Cadillac all leather like the Benz and BMW's? It is real wood or fake wood?

Does the trim on the door and dash line up nicely? I sat in one the other day and the fit and finish wasn't too great, and there was a large gap between the trim on the dash and the trim on the door. Specifically the air vent on the dash and wood trim on the door.

I have to admit the new SRX interior is bangup.

But 56 grand for a Cadillac Vue is a bit steep.

They seriously need to axe the chrome fender vents.

And that is exactly the kind of self-fufilling crap that will insure just that.

Any chance you could get your mitts on a non-Turbo SRX to do some comparison in the real world?

Although the turbo's demise is not great for enthusiasts, given the crowd that buys these vehicles, I doubt it'll be terribly missed.

How's the side and rear visibility? Driver's position/ergonomics? Cupholders? Sound system? HVAC?
