Buick Envision

2019
  • Road Test
  • Predicted Reliability
  • Predicted Owner Satisfaction
Buick's luxury compact SUV sits between the tiny Encore and large Enclave. The Chinese-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. A less expensive 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine and available front-wheel drive are new. Handling is clumsy, but ultimately the car is secure when pushed to its limits. Oddly, the ride is a mixed bag, soft and unsettled at the same time. Access is easy, and the rear seat is relatively roomy. The infotainment system is easy to use. Note that the dash vents are too low and tend to cool the driver's elbows. Buick's available suite of active safety equipment includes forward collision warning and lane departure mitigation systems, as well as automatic braking.
