Buick Envision

2019
  • Road Test
  • Predicted Reliability
  • Predicted Owner Satisfaction
Buick's entry into the luxury compact SUV segment sits between the tiny Encore and giant Enclave. The China-built Envision uses a smooth and quiet 252-hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder originally mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. For 2019 the turbo engine is paired to a nine-speed automatic. Handling is clumsy but ultimately the car is secure when pushed to its limits. Oddly, the ride is a mixed bag, both soft and unsettled at the same time. Wind noise is pronounced. The interior is well-finished and features a relatively roomy rear seat. Buick's suite of active safety equipment includes forward-collision warning and lane-departure mitigation systems, as well as automatic braking. A less-expensive 2.5-liter four-cylinder and front-wheel-drive versions are available. The Envision's 2019 update addresses some of the SUV's initial shortcomings.
