Underdeveloped, overpriced, and over here. That's the story of the Buick Envision. On paper, this new addition to the Buick family looks appealing. It's a semi-luxury, handily-sized SUV with plenty of standard equipment, emulating the concept of competitors from Audi, BMW, and Lexus. Built in China, where Buick is very popular, the Envision bridges the gap between the small Encore and large Enclave.
While it has potential, the Envision isn't fully baked. The crossover falls short on ride comfort, noise isolation, and handling agility. On top of that, the Envision's price--$45,000 as tested--is not commensurate with its merit. It's overpriced by about $10,000.
