2018 Buick Envision review: Our expert's take

What it is: Buick has already proved itself adept at luxury on a large scale with the three-row Enclave SUV, and the Envision is Buick’s compact luxury SUV. Assembled in China, the five-seat Envision slots below the Enclave and above the tiny Encore in the automaker's lineup.

There are no significant changes.

I have enjoyed this car from the beginning since I

The car was what I was looking for. It has all the features I wanted and rides extremely well. The mileage is good as well. It is very roomy and comfortable


Love it!

Had mine for 2 years now. Has been trouble free. Very reliable. I have the 2.0 l turbo. Very responsive and smooth transition between gears. Engine is quiet compared to my previous compact SUV. Nice looking in and out. Surprisingly overlooked by many buyers.


Seems to be what I was looking for

It's of a good size to give me space,but not being too big for handling. Love the interior,main feature I love is seat height of getting in and out,since I have a hip problem. Have only driven once since getting it,so can't really comment on reliability.
