    The first generation Cadillac SRX brought General Motors' premium brand into the crossover segment, providing better fuel economy compared to similarly sized SUVs while also delivering significantly improved driving dynamics. We bought into that first-generation, rear-wheel-drive SRX when we reviewed it way back in 2007, but the luxury car-buying public apparently wasn't all that interested. Sales of the sharp handling SRX never took off, largely keeping Cadillac off of the luxury crossover gravy train long dominated by the Lexus RX 350.

    Cadillac hopes to change its crossover fortunes with the introduction of the all-new 2010 SRX. This time out, the SRX is very different from the one it replaces, with a fundamental shift from a rear-wheel drive platform (with available all-wheel drive) to a front-drive setup (also with available AWD). Along with that shift in powered wheels, the 2010 model goes with smaller, more efficient powertrains. Cadillac doesn't try to hide the fact that the new SRX is gunning for the RX, but GM's designers and engineers didn't want to simply copy the strong-selling Lexus. Cadillac wanted its crossover to be more expressive inside and out, with state-of-the-art tech and superior driving dynamics. Does the new SRX have what it takes?

    The first generation SRX was strange-looking. I don't think the luxury car-buying public's lack of interest had anything to do with the fact that it handled nicely and had lots of power. They should have left that part of the formula alone with this new interior and exterior design.

    In the picture of the interior - why does the front passenger side seat and the center arm rest have a different color than the driver's side seat? I doubt that's a lighting issue. It looks more like a quality control issue.

    Just as I predicted, they thought the 3.0L V6 was a little under-powered for this car. I'm hoping the 2.8 Turbo will be right in the power range that this car deserves.
