The 2023 Buick Envision makes an effort to mimic the top compact luxury SUVs on the market today, despite Buick not being a brand that quickly comes to mind when discussing luxury.
The Buick’s stunning outward design envelops a cozy interior that may be equipped with top-notch features and materials. It has a 228-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine that offers sufficient acceleration.
The Envision, however, stays true to Buick’s legacy of prioritizing comfort over performance. Buick SUVs are comfortable and attractive, while not being elegant or luxurious.
Engine and Performance
The Envision’s hood is dedicated to the one engine that Buick offers. 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged with 228 horsepower. It comes with a nine-speed automatic transmission and comes standard with front-wheel drive.
However, each of the three trim levels of the SUV can be ordered with all-wheel drive. Although though the Envision has a lively feel for cruising, it never manages to feel extremely speedy, especially when compared to other high-end vehicles like the BMW X3.
The Buick’s 7.3-second zero-to-60-mph run during testing was lackluster; but, most drivers will be pleased with its subjective performance on the road.
The front-wheel-drive Envision scores 23 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway according to EPA standards. If you choose an all-wheel-drive vehicle, the figures fall to 22 and 29 mpg, respectively.
The interior of the Envision has a very stylish look, and of the three trim levels, the Avenir is the one that most effectively competes with rivals like the Q5, X3, and Mercedes-Benz GLC-class.
The Avenir adds luxuries like quilted leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, and a massaging driver’s seat in addition to the many standard features included in the Preferred and Essence models.
The current Envision is somewhat shorter than the previous generation, therefore it has a little less cargo room than before, but the cabin offers comparable passenger space. The new model can only fit 21 carry-on luggage, compared to the old model’s maximum capacity of 26 when the rear seat is folded flat.
Safety and Driver-Assistance Features
Buick comes loaded with a ton of driver-assistance systems, and more sophisticated systems are available. Additional safety features include automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and adaptive cruise control as well as standard lane-departure warning with lane-keeping assistance.
