Cadillac SRX
4/10

Overall
verdict

A crossover from the US of A, the Cadillac SRX is a bit of an oddity here in the UK. Interesting, but not enough to actually justify buying one.

Additional Info

  • The relief that it isn’t an Escalade is mitigated by the fact that it’s a Cadillac SUV of any sort
  • Top Gear wildcard

    A Discovery 3 is about £30k. Buy that instead. Or find a drain and pour your money down it

What is it?

Softly sprung and poorly damped so that it bounces on UK roads, the SRX isn't the kind of car to attack a B-road with. Mind you, it's not the kind of car you want to attack any road with.

Driving

Can shimmy over broken surfaces, so not actually that relaxing to drive when compared to rivals - doesn't seem to be able to cope with bumps. Or corners. Seasickness is a worry.

On the inside

Either a 3.6-litre V6 or a 4.6-litre V8. The V6 gets a respectable 332bhp, 0-62mph in 8.1 seconds, 125mph top end and 20.2mpg. The big 396bhp V8 is faster again at 7.4 seconds for the sprint to 62mph and 140mph, but offers appalling economy at 16.9mpg (which you'll struggle to achieve in the real world).

Owning

About as cool as yellow dungarees and rainbow socks.
