2010 Cadillac SRX (photos)

The 2010 SRX is a complete reworking of Cadillac's small SUV, sizing it for a more eco-conscious generation and using fuel-efficient six-cylinder engines.

Radically redesigned for the 2010 model year, the new SRX is more crossover than SUV, with a front-wheel-drive platform, independent suspension, and a V-6 power plant.

The Cadillac CTS leads the company's efforts to modernize itself, and the SRX takes many cues from that car, including the bold, angular styling.

The standard power train in the SRX is this direct injection 3-liter V-6, making 265 horsepower. A higher performance turbocharged 2.8-liter engine is also available, with output of 300 horsepower.

With its small SUV design, the SRX fits five passengers and ample cargo.

Although the ride in the SRX is comfortable, the suspension doesn't use any active damping. The SRX can be had in front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive formats.

The cargo space is pretty typical for a car of this type. The rear seats also fold down for a longer bed.

Cadillac calls this large sunroof the Ultra-view. It has a fixed pane in back and a movable pane up front.

The cabin is nicely put together in the SRX, reflecting Cadillac's luxury image.

The SRX feels somewhat nimble, although it is an SUV, with a high riding position that is affected by body roll.

The instrument cluster looks very good in the SRX. We particularly like the round display in the speedometer, which shows a variety of information.

The six-speed automatic has a very aggressive sport setting, and can almost be shifted manually.

The center stack has a motorized LCD that can stow away when not needed for navigation.

We really like the resolution of the maps with this navigation system. Certain landmarks are also shown in 3D.

The traffic reporting feature is excellent and will warn about traffic jams on the road ahead even when there is no destination in the system.

A Bose audio system with 10 speakers does a very good job of musical reproduction.

The Bluetooth phone system in the SRX is very limited, merely offering the option to make calls by number, as opposed to other systems that integrate with a phone's contact list.

Our car came with a rear entertainment package, with DVD monitors cleverly hinged below the headrests.

The backup camera shows trajectory lines and will flash an icon to warn of an object behind the car.
