Buick Enclave Overview

The large Buick Enclave is a contemporary SUV with three rows of seats. It is a corporate cousin of the Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia, and uses the same 3.6-liter V6 engine and six-speed automatic. A recent freshening included improvements to the transmission, ride comfort, and interior quality. We like the Enclave's firm, comfortable, and quiet ride, and found its handling agile and secure. The third-row seat is roomy enough for adults, which is a big plus. Fit and finish is excellent. A forward collision and lane-departure warning system is available for 2014. Some of the controls are beginning to show the Enclave's age.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
