Editor's Overview

The 2015 Buick Enclave is the American brand's answer to luxury 3-row crossover SUVs such as the Acura MDX, Audi Q7 and Infiniti QX60. Like those upscale family haulers, the Buick is awash with amenities such as plush interiors, premium audio and advanced safety systems. Where the Enclave stands apart is with its larger size and lower price.

The inside is beautiful at night and lights up in a unique way.

The size of the vehicle is ideal. It drives well, parks well, gets average gas mileage. Not sure the price matches the quality of the products. Several pieces and parts are failing or broken inside with an average use. The transmission seems to be slipping somewhat also. Meanwhile I still have 3 more years left of payments. If I had to make the decision I am not sure I would purchase the vehicle again.

The car has amazing storage space and provides flexible storage options to work in a variety of situations.

I like the interior space, dvd player, gas mileage, trunk space, the back row folding down in two piece to provide flexibility. I strongly dislike the front passenger headrests and seats. They shift forward with the slightest pressure from behind. When on long drive, the front passenger is unable to sleep due to the seat being extremely uncomfortable when reclined.

It is suspension system makes it feel like you are riding on air.

Great ride, comfortable, excellent performance, roomy. It handles three car seats and the suspension system handles even the roughest roads. It take minimum effort power steering and both the braking process and acceleration is awesome. The body of the vehicle is classy and the color choices are great. It handles like a dream. Designed for any age and family.
