2013 Cadillac SRX Crossover Interior
Cadillac’s CUE infotainment system is the star of the new 2013 model. The system features a crisp LCD touch-screen and intuitive audio, climate, navigation, and phone control. The system has only four buttons: power, volume up/down, and home. CUE is controlled by voice commands and the swipes and pinches we have become accustom to using on our smartphones.
The visual impact CUE has made is just as impressive as the technology itself. The SRX used to be loaded with buttons and knobs, but now it is simple, refined, and high-tech. The interior is a welcomed combination of technology and luxury.
2013 Cadillac SRX Crossover Safety
The 2013 Cadillac SRX comes standard with antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, OnStar, front side airbags, and side curtain airbags. Optional is a Driver Awareness package which comes standard on the SRX Premium, and adds forward-collision alert, lane departure warning, and a safety alert driver seat. The safety alert driver’s seat vibrates when the car suspects an imminent crash, and can be turned off if users decide they don’t like the unique feature.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety granted the SRX the top rating of “Good” in their frontal-offset, side-impact, and roof strength tests.
