Cadillac is a badge built on tradition. While the SRX fits a new(ish) category and presents an aggressive new Cadillac look, don't forget what built the brand: COMFORT.
The SRX offers all the nice little luxuries you want—heated seats, ventilated seats, etc.—and something more important, quiet. GM's upper-echelon vehicles were celebrated by your grandfather for this very thing. Don't turn your nose up, embrace it. The SRX succeeds in granting a quiet ride through innovation. Utilizing a the same Bose Active Noise Cancellation system as the famous headphones, three microphones monitor sound in the cabin and reduce unwanted low frequencies. Serenity, never forget, is the first step to sanity (and thus, avoiding road rage).
