The 2014 Cadillac SRX SUV is a strong selection for an entry-level deluxe crossover SUV, especially if you’re seeking one that’s well stocked with safety attributes. Rivals supply much more powerful and effective engine alternatives, however, and, in many cases, do a better job of incorporating modern technology in the cabin.
