2019 Buick Enclave review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 Buick Enclave?

The 2019 Enclave is a premium three-row SUV with room for up to seven occupants. It has a 310-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine that works with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Both front- and all-wheel-drive versions are available. Competitors include the Acura MDX and Infiniti QX60.

What's New on the 2019 Buick Enclave?

The Enclave is now available in a front-wheel-drive Preferred trim level, and an automatic heated steering wheel is standard on the Premium and Avenir trims.

How Does the 2019 Buick Enclave Compare to Other Three-row SUVs?

Buick tries to stand out by being more premium than mainstream SUVs but without the prices of high-end luxury brands. Its interior space is a match for any competitor in the class. Third-row space, seating position and overall comfort win out over the Acura MDX and Infiniti QX60.

What Features in the 2019 Buick Enclave Are Most Important?

Second-row SmartSlide seats give easy access to the third row, and a rear-seat reminder is designed to help you avoid forgetting anything in the backseat. An available rear camera mirror and a 360-degree camera system ensure optimal visibility, while a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hot spot comes standard to keep you connected on the road (data trial included).

Should I Buy the 2019 Buick Enclave?

If you’re a big family with a lot of cargo to haul but are willing to miss some of the luxury that comes with a high-end SUV, the Enclave might be a good fit. If you’re looking for an especially elegant design, another luxury SUV may be more appealing.
