2006 SRX Overview

Cadillac may not have created the recipe that makes the SRX, but it has come close to perfecting it.This is one utility vehicle that does it all.It has the driving dynamics of a good luxury sedan, the all-weather capability of some truck-based SUVs and the space and functionality of a minivan.

The Cadillac SRX is a good choice among luxury SUVs, if you can call it an SUV.It drives like a European sedan and its edgy styling stands out in a sea of boxy sport-utilities and minivans.Yet the SRX is quite practical.It can carry up to seven passengers, and its flat, carpeted cargo area works great for hauling cargo.Its sharp handling, quick acceleration and high-performance braking make for a sporty, enjoyable experience.Yet it offers a smooth, extremely quiet ride.

The SRX comes trimmed with leather upholstery and is loaded with luxury features.The interior is stylish and comfortable, if not warm and inviting.It's available with a V6 or V8 engine.Both engines feature the latest technology, including electronic throttle control and four overhead cams with fully variable valve timing.The V8s are smooth and confident and deliver brilliant acceleration for a vehicle of this size.All-wheel drive is available and we've found that the SRX performs superbly in the snow.

Improvements for 2006 are subtle, but noticeable and welcome.New wood trim on the center stack adds a bit of warmth to the cabin, while new wheel designs give SRX a more aggressive stance.The standard suspension has been lowered slightly for 2006, allowing what Cadillac claims to be the lowest step-in height in the class.A power rear liftgate is now standard on both models, allowing the owner to open and close it without touching an exterior surface or getting hands dirty; it's really handy when walking up to or away from the car with an armload of groceries.

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Cadillac should be flattered.The SRX's success has prompted similar vehicles from other luxury car builders, including the Mercedes R-Class.More are on the way.But for now, at least, Cadillac is off with an impressive head start.
