2015 Cadillac SRX Review

The Cadillac SRX has an attractive interior, a smooth ride, a muscular V6 engine, and many advanced safety features. However, its infotainment controls can be frustrating and the rear seats are cramped.

Pros & Cons

  • Strong V6 engine
  • Well-balanced handling
  • Luxurious interior materials
  • Difficult-to-use touch screen
  • Low fuel economy

2015 Cadillac SRX Overview

Is the 2015 Cadillac SRX a Good Used SUV?

The Cadillac SRX is a great option if you’re shopping for a used luxury midsize SUV. The SRX impresses with its upscale cabin, pleasant handling, and above-average predicted reliability rating. Used models are often far less expensive than class competitors, and there are active safety features like blind spot monitoring in nearly every trim. That said, the Cadillac isn’t perfect. It has tight rear visibility and headroom, awkward touch-screen controls, and low fuel economy.

Used 2015 Cadillac SRX Performance and Interior

The Cadillac SRX has a 308-horsepower V6 engine. A six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive are standard; all-wheel drive (AWD) is available. The potent engine helps the SRX accelerate briskly and the refined automatic delivers prompt shifts. The crossover exhibits confident passing power at higher speeds. Fuel economy is low for the class at just 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.

The Cadillac SRX rides smoothly and soaks up bumps well, but not at the expense of handling. The SRX feels agile and stable through tight corners, and its steering is responsive. An adaptive suspension, optional in Performance and Premium models, strikes an even finer balance between ride comfort and handling.

The Cadillac SRX seats five and has an elegant cabin with quality materials throughout. The front seats are soft and provide good long-haul comfort. The rear seats are cozy as well, but headroom is tight for taller passengers – especially in sunroof-equipped models. Leatherette upholstery is standard; leather, heated and ventilated front seats, and heated rear seats are available. The SRX offers decent forward visibility for a midsize SUV, but rear and side visibility is limited by the vehicle’s slim windows. The SRX’s 60/40 split rear seats fold, raising cargo space from 29.9 to 61.1 cubic feet. There are two full sets of LATCH connectors for securing child safety seats.

Cadillac equips all 2015 SRX models with an 8-inch touch screen, satellite radio, a USB input, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi connectivity through OnStar. The touch screen and its CUE infotainment system aren’t very user-friendly, though. The system is prone to lagging and has confusing on-screen menus. Touch-sensitive sliders replace conventional knobs and buttons beneath the screen, and they can be awkward to use on the go. Available features include a power liftgate, a navigation system, and a rear-seat DVD player with two screens.

Should I Consider Another Used SRX?

The 2015 Cadillac SRX marks the sixth model year of the vehicle’s second generation, which debuted in 2010. There were no major changes for 2015, so you’re likely to find similarly equipped 2013 and 2014 models at a much lower price. The SRX crossover was replaced by the all-new Cadillac XT5 in 2017.

Which Used Cadillac SRX Is Right for Me?

The 2015 SRX comes in four trim levels: Standard, Luxury, Performance, and Premium. The SRX Standard has an 8-inch touch screen, satellite radio, Bluetooth, a USB input, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and leatherette upholstery. For the best combination of features and value, focus on the SRX Luxury trim. It adds leather, heated seats, a sunroof, keyless entry, remote start, a power tailgate, rain-sensing wipers, a rearview camera, parking sensors, and blind spot monitoring. The SRX Performance trim adds a navigation system. The SRX Premium trim adds forward collision and lane departure warning, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and tri-zone air conditioning.

You may also want to shop for a certified pre-owned SRX. Cadillac CPO vehicles see the original new-car limited warranty extended to six years or 100,000 miles. Cadillac CPO models must pass a 172-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read Cadillac’s warranty page carefully.

2015 Cadillac SRX and Other SUVs to Consider

Which Is Better: 2015 Cadillac SRX or 2015 Lexus RX 350?

We named the Lexus RX 350 the 2015 Best Luxury 2-Row SUV for the Money and Best Luxury 2-Row SUV for Families. These rival SUVs are both great options, but the Lexus is the better pick. It offers a roomier seating area, larger cargo space, and higher reliability ratings than the Cadillac. The SRX does boast a more luxurious interior, though, and used models often cost less.

Which Is Better: 2015 Cadillac SRX or 2015 Lincoln MKX?

The 2015 Lincoln MKX and Cadillac SRX both aim to deliver the same thing – a luxury experience at a bargain price – but only the SRX achieves it. The MKX has cumbersome handling, lackluster engine performance, a lower-quality interior, and fewer advanced safety features. The Cadillac is the better pick overall.

Which Is Better: 2015 Cadillac SRX or 2015 Ford Edge?

It may not be a luxury vehicle, but the fully redesigned 2015 Ford Edge is a great alternative to the SRX. The upscale Edge has attractive looks inside and out, a larger cargo space, a far roomier seating area, and higher fuel economy estimates (up to 21/29 mpg city/highway). Both SUVs have above-average reliability ratings and sure-footed handling, but you’ll find used Edge models at much lower prices. The Edge is the better buy.
