AutoGuide Review: New Buick Envision Is a Compelling Compact Crossover

AutoGuide's Sami Haj-Assaad recently had an opportunity to test the all-new Buick Envision, a compact crossover that fits right between the smaller Encore and the larger Enclave. Haj-Assad reports the Envision pleases from first glance, calling it handsome with a smooth and bubbly exterior that is entirely welcoming. Standard exterior accoutrements include 18-inch wheel, halogen headlamps and LED daytime running lights.

Haj-Assaad tested the turbocharged, all-wheel drive Premium 1 version of the Envision, which included navigation and a moonroof. It also had heated front seats front and back, forward collision alert, lane departure warning, back-up camera and power liftgate, as well as leather seating. There's lots of storage space onboard, such as an enclosed cubby to the left of the steering wheel for things like change, while the center console features another bin with a cover for other things, like cellphones, wallets or snacks. On the dash in front of the passenger is a deep shelf that was able to swallow up a phone with a big 5.5-inch screen.

Buick offers a ton of tech for its buyers, too. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard equipment, and there’s active noise cancellation that keeps the cabin quiet. Like many other GM vehicles, the Buick Envision is offered with OnStar 4G LTE and internet connection. Standard equipment is the solid IntelliLink infotainment system, which is responsive and easy to use.

We're excited to have the new 2017 Buick Envision here at Tom Ahl. Stop by our dealership today, or give us a call at (877) 748-4017 to set up a time for a test drive.
