2016 Cadillac SRX
Cadillac moves their SUV production to the United States
In the past, Cadillac has used Ramos Arizpe Mexico for their mid-sized cross over production. However, the production has been moved to Spring Hill, Tennessee for the new 2016 Cadillac SRX mid-size crossover. This transition to American soil has gotten the automotive industry talking about the redesigned vehicle with such sites as KBB and Edmunds stating that “the current-generation Cadillac SRX has been the brand’s offering for the entry-level luxury crossover SUV market. It’s done well and has actually been the best-selling model in Caddy’s entire lineup.”
The exterior of the 2016 SRX is slightly longer than that of the former models. This is primarily due to the implementation of the more modern Omega Platform base. The base allows for a large real wheel drive in their vehicles and gives a slightly enhanced interior space to the vehicle. On top of the platform, the exterior has been fine-tuned with advanced aerodynamic design to cut down on wind resistance. The anterior space has a large double grille and tapers back to the hood. The curvature of the design continues to the posterior side of the 2016 Cadillac SRX where the hatch has been rounded to produce a downward force.
As the Cadillac brand is associated with luxury as well as power, the new 2016 Cadillac SRX has utilized strategic placement of angles within the exterior design. The vehicle has also used chrome trim to bring out key features of the exterior. Accents on the grille, frontal lighting including the use of LED headlights for better clarity, as well as the accents added to the side paneling help to convey a sense of motion and showcase the advanced aerodynamics of the design, especially when these accents are coupled with a trim enhancement package.
Where the exterior of any vehicle is important to the owner, the comfort of the drive is also (if not more so) important. That is why the engineering of the interior of the 2016 Cadillac SRX has been carefully designed. The standard seats have been designed to minimize fatigue and stress on the legs. A maximized leg room for both the driver as well as all of the passengers contributes to a more enjoyable experience. Those who have little time to adjust the seating preferences every time he or she enters the car may want to opt for the available memory package. This package allows the driver to have 2 presets. Also available is the option for heated and ventilated frontal seating and underfloor storage bin. Check with your dealership as to the available packages for your selected trim.
Overall Safety Rating
The NHTSA has given the 2016 Cadillac SRX an overall 5 star rating. Frontal Collision, Side Collision, as well as the possibility for Rollover were all tested. Frontal Barrier Crash ratings were also recorded for both male and females with high results. The 2016 SRX can attribute its high rating to the overall steel frame construction and the multiple air bags placed throughout the interior. The NHTSA rating does not include the additional safety package options which further increase both driver and passenger safety. Some of the available SRX safety features include side blind zone alerts, safety alert seats, rear cross traffic, forward collision alerts, and front and rear park assistance. Drivers can also use the Cadillac Cue alongside, available on star assistance, GPS navigation, hands free and voice recognition controls to keep their attention on the road. Apart from the safety features of this technology, the Cue also allows the driver to keep his or her hands on the wheel while accessing selected social media such as messaging, music, and chat (TXT) features. This minimizes the likelihood of a collision due to driver distraction.
