Blending Buick's Trademark Quiet with a Youthful Attitude
Buick's renowned mix of comfort and value is now available in a small SUV. Slotted neatly between the Buick Encore subcompact SUV and the 3-row Enclave, the Buick Envision is positioned at the entry end of a wide-ranging segment that includes everything from the Acura RDX and Lincoln MKC to the BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLC. As quiet and comfortable as a Buick should be, the Envision's contemporary style and impressive tech further broaden the brand's expanding appeal.
"The Envision’s interior is calm and serene with very little wind or road noise, even out on the highway at 80 mph. That lack of intrusion along with the Buick’s upscale interior and smooth ride, provides a true luxury experience." Get more driving impressions in our 2018 Buick Envision review.
The Envision is available with features that aren't offered in many competing vehicles, like a Teen Driver system that lets parents better monitor and control driving behavior, 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot functionality, plus Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, to name a few.
