2010 Cadillac SRX Turbo (photos)

Cadillac fits its SRX crossover with a 2.8-liter turbocharged engine, giving it more pep than the standard 3-liter V-6 version. The cabin comes up to Cadillac's luxury standard, as does the cabin tech.

Cadillac's SRX is an SUV-styled crossover, built on the CTS platform. The car underwent a radical transformation for its second generation, 2010 model.

Cadillac design language is evident around the car, with angular lines on fenders and grille.

Cadillac offers the 2010 SRX with two engine choices, a direct injection 3-liter V-6 making 265 horsepower, or this turbocharged 2.8-liter V-6 making 300 horsepower. The former engine gets about 1 mpg better fuel economy.

Offering the same capacity as a traditional SUV, the SRX seats five, and includes room for luggage.

The SRX uses a conventional suspension, although ant-sway bars give it a sporting character.

The SRX's sunroof lets in light for all seats, although only the front half opens up.

The SRX drives easily, with well-tuned steering providing responsive turning.

Clear elements above the speedometer flash green with the turn signals and emergency flashers. A display in the speedometer shows trip, audio, and navigation information.

A six-speed automatic is the only transmission choice for the SRX. It has manual and sport modes, the latter being suitably aggressive in downshifting.

An Eco button on the console runs the engine at lower speeds. We didn't notice much difference between normal and Eco modes.

The controls below the clock let you choose menu items on the cabin tech interface, but the LCD is also a touch screen, which is useful for alphanumeric inputs.

We particularly like that the navigation system proactively warns about bad traffic on the road ahead.

The onscreen keyboard is easy to use with the touch screen, and has a pleasing aesthetic.

Our car came with the rear seat entertainment system, putting LCDs on the backs of the front seats.
