The roomy, comfortable Buick Enclave is a luxurious SUV with a sticker price that is significantly lower than others in its class. While this shows the Enclave offers a great value proposition, and helped it earn its standing as a 5-Year Cost to Own champ, that doesn't take away from the amenities or performance this SUV has to offer.
With seating for up to eight passengers, the Enclave's interior is both spacious and easy to reconfigure. Features like sliding, fold-flat rear seats and a generous cargo area make it easy to carry both people and gear. The interior uses generous amounts of soft-touch materials, and heated/cooled seats, rear-seat entertainment and Wi-Fi connectivity add to the feeling of luxury, as do the standard leather seating and rear-view camera.
The Enclave is powered by one engine, a 288-horsepower, 3.6-liter V6 and, as we explained in our Expert Review, ".despite the Buick's size and 4,700-pound weight, the engine eagerly propels the big vehicle even up steep mountain passes that make lesser cars wheeze. The Enclave is most adept as a comfortable cruiser, with a soft ride and an insulated cabin that benefits from Buick's 'QuietTuning' sound suppression."
The Buick Enclave is more comfortable on the highway than it is rocketing around hairpin turns in a canyon, and the smooth ride and quiet interior make any extended period of time spent in this SUV breeze by. With the best Cost to Own figure in its segment, Enclave owners can enjoy this comfort without breaking the bank.
