The 2016 Cadillac SRX comes in four trim levels: an unnamed base model, mid-level Luxury and Performance trims, and an upscale SRX Premium.
Even the base-level SRX ($38,600) has a lot of standard equipment. Features include 18-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, automatic headlights, front and rear parking sensors, leatherette upholstery, new Wi-Fi hot spot capability and Cadillac's CUE system. There's an 8-in touch screen with apps, GM's OnStar system and Bluetooth connectivity.
Step up to the SRX Luxury ($44,600) and you'll have keyless access with a remote starter, a rearview camera, a panoramic sunroof, rain-sensing wipers, a power liftgate and a rear cross-traffic alert system for backing out of tight parking spots. The SRX Luxury also includes dual power seats with driver memory, leather upholstery, heated front seats and a heated steering wheel. That's a lot of equipment for the money.
Next up is the SRX Performance ($47,000), which offers a sporty flair. It boasts 20-in alloy wheels, sport-tuned suspension for improved handling, fog lights, a Bose audio system and adaptive headlights that swivel when the wheel turns. Performance models also include Cadillac's voice-activated navigation system as standard equipment.
Topping the lineup is the SRX Premium ($49,900), which adds the optional Driver Awareness package as standard equipment. You'll have Cadillac's IntelliBeam lighting system, along with a lane-departure warning system, a forward-collision warning system and a safety-alert driver seat that lets you know if you're drifting into another lane. SRX Premium models also boast heated rear seats, ventilated front seats and tri-zone automatic climate control.
On the options list, there's a rear-seat entertainment system with dual rear screens, a towing package and the Driver Awareness package, available on Luxury and Performance models.

2016 Audi Q5 -- The Audi's price is nearly the same as the SRX's, but at each trim level, the SRX offers more for the money. While the Q5's interior finish is hard to beat, the Cadillac packs more advanced technology.
2015 Lexus RX 350 -- The new RX is hard to beat, offering class-leading technology, improved driving dynamics and reasonable pricing. If you don't mind the unusual styling, the RX is hard to beat.
Used Cadillac Escalade -- If you like the SRX's Cadillac badge but want more room and brawn, you may want to consider the larger Escalade. It's currently the only way you can have a 3-row Cadillac, but steep prices mean you may have to consider a used model.
