Used Car: 2010 Cadillac SRX Review

Review Last Updated: 7/16/12

The 2010 Cadillac SRX, which was redesigned for 2010, has plenty of style, a luxurious interior and respectable cabin and cargo space. Though it doesn’t have the sharpest performance, reviewers said if you’re looking for a competent 2010 compact SUV with some style, the SRX is a good choice.

The 2010 Cadillac SRX is ranked:

When it was new, critics thought the redesigned 2010 Cadillac SRX was a hit. They praised its luxurious, well-made interior and its smooth, yet athletic, suspension. They never called it fast or exciting, but were largely pleased when they got behind the wheel, especially on models with the available turbocharged engine. It also has a reliability score that’s slightly above-average.

The 2010 Cadillac SRX has two engines. The base is a 3.0-liter V6 making 265 horsepower that most critics thought was underpowered. They preferred the available 300-horsepower turbocharged V6, saying it felt less sluggish. Front-wheel drive models, only available with the base engine, achieve fuel economy estimates of 18/25 mpg city/highway, which is fairly good for the class. However, adding all-wheel drive lowers those figures to 17/23 mpg or 15/22 mpg with the turbocharged engine. With the rear seats folded, the SRX can carry up to 61.2 cubic feet of cargo, which is fairly good for the class.

Reviewers generally liked the SRX’s cabin, saying it has high-quality materials and that the seats were plenty comfortable. Standard equipment includes dual-zone climate control, a Bose stereo, Bluetooth and satellite radio. Upgrading to higher trim levels adds features like a power liftgate, panoramic sunroof, a navigation system and a rear entertainment system.

Other Cars to Consider

As you’re shopping for the SRX, you should also consider the 2010 Audi Q5. The Q5 is a better-rounded compact SUV, with respectable cargo space (though it has a bit less than the SRX), decent fuel economy and a luxurious interior.

Another SUV you may like is the 2010 Infiniti EX. Critics loved the EX’s powerful engine and sport sedan-like handling, saying it’s one of the fastest vehicles in the class. Keep in mind that is also is one of the least practical, with one of the lowest maximum cargo capacities.
