Cadillac has shown the new SRX at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, a year before it goes on sale. Like the current SRX, it's a mid-sized SUV that sits between the BMW X3 and X5 in terms of size. The new car is similar in styling and proportion to the Provoq concept car, which was shown at the Detroit show in January, and more recently was on the stand at the London motor show.
Described by Cadillac as a 'crossover', the SRX will be based on GM's new Theta platform, which will underpin a number of other mid-sized SUVs in the corporate range, including the forthcoming Saab 9-4X. Both cars will be built in Mexico.Sales of the current SRX have been slow in the UK, but GM hopes that the new car will be able to broaden the brand's appeal thanks to modern styling and the future option of diesel engines.
