That was the slogan for Cadillac back in 1966 and here we are in 2015. Cadillac has come a long way.
It has been one (very long) week since I sat in the seat of a brand new Cadillac SRX. Renick Cadillac in Fullerton set me up with a new ride for the weekend. As I drove off, I joked that I might not come back or I might come back Sunday with a trade-in for them. I was quite surprised how attached I grew to my sweet ride for the weekend. Let me walk you through some of my favorite features.
Let me start by saying I have driven some nice German autos in my life. So I can say from experience the Cadillac SRX is SOLID. And I really mean solid. I felt safe and the drive was tight. Great steering connection and great brakes, not to mention all of the amazing safety features that are built into this amazing auto.
I am a very busy Mom and business professional along with running my own business. The weekend I had the privilege of driving the Cadillac, I was driving from Mission Viejo then to Fullerton for an event and then we had to prep for our son’s 2 year old birthday. That meant a trip to Party City and Baskin Robbins (you know the drill) and then back home to Mission Viejo. All the while dealing with the reality that my little baby is growing into a toddler. He’s not a baby anymore! But that’s a different blog post…
While driving, if you crossover into another lane or switch lanes without a blinker whichever way you’re moving to the left or right, your seat vibrates to warn you. Then if you are driving too fast and you are closing in on the car ahead of you (not that I would know about that), you will also feel a vibration in your seat and the dash will flash red to warn you that you are approaching too fast. Plus, there’s the awesome backup camera and warning sensors. The SRX truly did a lot of my thinking for me! And trust me, I need just one more brain throughout my day.
Now let’s move on to the CUE system. In a nutshell it’s a responsive touch-screen technology. It integrates your smartphone or iPod with your vehicle controls. I’ll be honest I just touched the surface of the capabilities of this first-of-its kind technology and I loved what I saw. It has a 8-inch LCD touch screen which highly resembles a smartphone, making it really user friendly. CUE included navigation, which is a must for me. Doesn’t that look amazing?
The interior of the vehicle was gorgeous and well done. I’m super picky when it comes to looking at the inside of my car and the Cadillac SRX surpassed my highest expectations. Call me silly, but one of my absolute favorite features was the ginormous (yes, that is a word) sunroof. Wide to begin with, it even opened over the back seat of the vehicle, allowing the littles to get some of their own vitamin D. It’s the little things … or in this case, BIG things, that really matter.
Do you want to invest in a Cadillac SRX for yourself? Here’s the best part. This amazing crossover SUV starts at just $37,605. Anyone can afford a Cadillac now! I’d highly recommend getting down to Renick Cadillac and test driving one for yourself. Tell them Jen Broas from OC Family sent you!
