Cabin makeover for Caddy SRX (updated)
13 July 2006

The Cadillac SRX crossover is getting an interior makeover, with a hand-crafted cabin to add a touch more luxury.

Coverings on the dash, centre console and doors are now cut, sewn and wrapped mostly by hand, making for a higher-quality finish and the near elimination of interior panel gaps. The interior has also been restyled, with flush-mounted switches and controls, and storage compartments hidden in the wood trim on the fascia.

Cadillac is especially proud of the concealing of the passenger airbag: hidden perforations on the underside of the fascia’s leather covering allow it to burst through when needed, but it is ordinarily entirely hidden.

The SRX should also now sound better, thanks to the addition of an optional Bose 5.1 Cabin Surround audio system, which can also be linked to an optional rear-seat DVD entertainment system. A nine-speaker Bose system is now standard.

The SRX, which is available in the UK only in left-hand-drive form costs from £29,895. The revised SRX will make its European debut at the Paris motor show in September, and a right-hand-drive version is planned to arrive in the first quarter of 2007.
