Cadillac introduces technology and design enhancements on the 2013 Cadillac SRX to the SRX luxury crossover SUV market this week at the New York International Auto Show.

The 2013 Cadillac SRX year also will bring a mild interior update with touch-sensitive controls. In short, the 2013 Cadillac SRX will looks to be a better SRX than the one it succeeds.

Also new in the 2013 Cadillac SRX is the SRX’s range of 20-inch wheel designs, including new chrome and polished aluminum wheels for the Performance and Premium Collections – the top two option packages. Interior and exterior design updates further distinguish the 2013 Cadillac SRX, while active noise cancelation technology helps provide a quieter driving experience.
The revised luxury crossover has been treated to a mild facelift, but as with so many things, it’s what’s inside those counts with the new 2013 Cadillac SRX. The 2013 Cadillac SRX cabin has been updated with a series of cosmetic and functional changes (new steering wheel, new shifter, etc.), but the bigger news is its fresh electronics.
Cadillac has imbued the 2013 Cadillac SRX interior with its new CUE infotainment and connectivity system, complete with an eight-inch capacitive touch screen. The Cadillac CUE (Cadillac User Experience) is standard on the 2013 Cadillac SRX; it is the brand’s new design and technical breakthrough for intuitive in-vehicle control and connectivity.
The 2013 Cadillac SRX CUE pairs entertainment and information data from up to 10 Bluetooth-enabled mobile devices, USBs, SD cards and MP3 players with a vehicle infotainment system that reduces complexity through customized information, voice commands and fewer buttons and larger icons.
The comprehensive, in-vehicle experience is designed to be unique for each consumer, from the “simple user” to the fully connected “super user.” Other additions in the 2013 Cadillac SRX include the Safety Alert Seat system and active safety features like automatic front- and rear braking, adaptive cruise control, and so on.
