The exterior styling of Cadillac SRX is sharp and sporty; it is different from anything else out there. Edgy headlights and angular front bumper with Cadillac’s signature grille makes for a stunning front profile. The roofline and body slopes towards the rear creating a moving effect; however this compromises on the luggage space at the back. The tail lamps are designed in a horizontal pattern and look beautiful. SRX is aggressive and elegant; its razor sharp look gives it a sporty feel. Fine detailing of chrome on fog-lamps, exhaust tips, roof-rails and door handle are a treat to the eye. Sitting on 20” six spoke aluminium wheels (18” on base model), SRX projects a wide dominating stance. Like always, Cadillac successfully sets a new example in exterior styling…again.
