2007 SRX Overview

Click above image for photo gallery The Cadillac SRX sold a little over 22,000 units in 2006. Based on our time spent behind the wheel, we're guessing that a lot of the angular crossover's buyers are satisfied customers. Marketed as an SUV upon release, Cadillac later relented and has (correctly) positioned the SRX as a CUV. After all, the SUV moniker summons mental images of a vehicle that might not offer a forgiving ride for its occupants. The SRX is the opposite of all that. Follow the jump for the review in full. %Gallery-1355% For 2007, the SRX received attention from Cadillac that has managed to remain a bit under the radar. It concerns the vehicle's passenger cabin, and it's where we'll start. This year, the SRX was bestowed with the new Cut & Sew interior. This means more than just additional leather, mind you. While the basic interior configuration remained the same, the trim and materials were completely overhauled. Granted, the '06 was certainly not a bad place to sit, but the '07 truly elevates the standard for the Cadillac brand (something we saw advance even higher in Detroit with the introduction of the stunning 2008 CTS). For starters, the center stack has been revamped, now capped and bordered by an aluminum trim piece that adds much needed detail and acts as the frame for reshaped, classier-looking heating vents. The entire dashboard, the door panels, and even the transmission tunnel are now trimmed in leather. The stitching on the hides adds richness to the overall ambiance and really completes the look. It's remarkable how something so simple can help transform a decent interior into a great one. The instrumentation is similar to what's offered in the Escalade, except the SRX gets red needles as opposed to the blue ones in it's big-truck sibling. The aforementioned center stack contains the head unit for the Bose 5.1 audio system, which includes a single-disc CD player, MP3 compatibility, DVD, navigation and XM radio. The climate controls are uncluttered and use dials for the main functions. In a smart move, Cadillac locates the controls for the seat heaters on the door-mounted armrests. This places them in an accessible spot for both driver and passenger, helps maintain the dash/stack's clean, uncluttered look, and eliminates one of the negatives we experienced with the Escalade, which was a very crammed climate control panel. The center console features ample storage, and the woodgrain trim that ornaments both it and the dashboard is particularly pleasing to the eye. Another nifty feature in the SRX's cabin is the double glove box. The traditional one is where you'd expect it to be. Directly above it, you notice that the wood trim has an indentation in it which, when pressed, opens a "secret" compartment that's fully lined. It's perfect for items you may not want rattling around in the deep center console bin. More than one guest riding shotgun noted that it'd be the perfect place to stash the types …
