About Buick Envision

For 2017 Buick’s Envision compact-premium crossover SUV is now a full lineup of vehicles, with new base, Preferred and Essence models joining last year's Premium models. With the new models comes a new base engine, a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder, and a lower entry price. The new Buick Envision competes against premium SUVs like the Acura RDX, Lincoln MKC and Audi Q5, leaving the BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class to its cousin, the Cadillac XT5. It offers up plenty of high-end features on the options and standard-equipment lists, and for a reasonable price through the range. We think the 2017 Envision is sure to make solid inroads against its competition, and maybe draw in new shoppers to the Buick showroom in the process.

2016 Buick Envision

The Buick Envision is an all-new SUV, at least in the United States. It's been a big success -- and is made -- in China. The Envision is among the first of a handful of cars imported from China. If its quality is any indicator, it won't be the last.

"Theres a shimmy/shaking when accelerating. Its very annoying & the dealership says GM is aware of the problem. However, being aware is not fixing it. It drives great & is very comfortable. The noise is more pronounced on the highway than what I expected."

Pros: "Well Designed, Engineered and Executed Vehicle!"

Cons: "Inability to override the START/STOP feature."

"OK, so I went to the local dealer to purchase a new GMC Terrain Denali which would have been the third Terrain and 2nd Denali. Drove the 2018 Model and just could not come to terms with the relocation of the gear selector to push buttons located on the center console. Decided to look further. As we are leaving my wife sees a car outside which as a red 2017 Buick Envision Premium !!. We take it for a test drive and both like it, as with all auto transactions, 4 hours later consummated a deal which I thought was fair. Will readily admit that I was very put off by the START/STOP feature which, unlike our BMW, cannot be overridden. However, the feature is barely noticeable in the Envision and one becomes used to it very quickly. Unlike my BMW which jerks & shudders when the START/STOP kicks in the Envision has no such bad manners and the process is not intrusive. Very much astounded as to how much both my wife (principal driver) and I like this vehicle. Well appointed with good ergonomics, comfortable seats, very peppy engine for a four banger and a turning radius I can live with - our Terrains all had a horrible turning radius. Once you take the time to educate yourself about the Infotainment system, controls and Driver Information Center functions become very intuitive and are easy to navigate. Also of benefit is the availability of Android Auto."
