Safety is a large priority for me, how does the SRX stack up?
While no safety test results are currently available, an SRX engineer told us it has been designed to receive top ratings from all testing organizations. High-strength steel is used throughout the vehicle structure, and there are standard head curtain side air bags and standard front seat-mounted pelvic/thorax side air bags too. Rollover mitigation sensors, traction control, and StabiliTrak electronic stability control are all standard. Front and rear parking sensors are also standard. The SRX lacks some of the more advanced (albeit costly) safety features found among its competitors such as blind spot monitoring and imminent crash detection, but we were informed an "enhanced safety package" would be available down the road to bring the SRX up to par. As with most GM cars, OnStar comes standard.
