Editor's Overview

The new 2017 Buick Envision fills the void between the subcompact Buick Encore and 3-row Buick Enclave SUV models, going head-to-head against competitors like the Acura RDX. Like other premium-compact SUV models, the 2017 Buick Envision offers a combination of luxury features and road manners associated with vehicles like the Mercedes-Benz GLC, but at a more reasonable price.

Why I drive a Buick. The safety features and comfort.

I have driven many SUVs. My Buick envision is the most comfortable yet! Good gas mileage and has plenty of room. I have not had any issues so far with this car. I love the remote start, heated seats and steering wheel. This vehicle also has back up camera and notifications when I am too close to switch lanes.

Buick envision: is it the right car for you?

I like the comfort, ease of driving, safety features, looks of envision. I do not like that there is no CD player, storage space is minimal esp. glove box, dealership refused to give me correct owners manual, and the way the engine almost shuts off when you stop at lights, etc. ( gas saving feature??).

- Debbie S

Blindspot warnings and the curved back up view are wonderful safety features.

I love the luxurious feel of the interior. It is just the right size for me, not too small, not too big. I love the ease with which it handles, the quiet, smooth ride. It has the look and feel of a much more expensive vehicle. I looked at many and this offered me the most luxury for the price.
