Editor's Overview

Buick’s family-friendly Enclave luxury SUV for 2017 has a lot going for it. Its aging platform remains strong, offering generous accommodations in all three rows and a large cargo area behind the 3rd-row seat. And while the Enclave ranks low in the areas of fuel economy and safety technology, it certainly isn’t worth passing up a test drive.

Comfortable and lots of space!

My enclave has been a reliable car to drive around my two little girls! There is plenty of space for the kids and all of their stuff plus our dog too! We have taken the car on a few longer road trips and it is very comfortable and has a wonderful smooth ride! We love the captains chairs in the middle row to keep our girls from getting to �handsy� on car trips!:).

The best vehicle for me and my family.

I like the way I fit in this car. It has nice feeling of safety. The vehicle set higher than most cars on the road which gives you a sense of clarity around you. I like the style of the interior. My current vehicle has second row bucket seats which makes it more comfortable for people who sit in those seats. I like the hands free phone and radio controls.

The best small/midsize SUV for storage space.

The Buick enclave is a great family vehicle. It has a comfortable smooth ride for all passengers. We bought it when expecting our first child and the three things that we loved about the enclave were the safety, comfort, and storage capacity. When you lay down the third row it definitely has the most storage room out of other vehicles comparable in size.
