Avenir is the future of Buick. As the highest expression of luxury in the automaker’s lineup, the Avenir designation brings the brand into the 21st century. By adding upscale touches inside and out, the Avenir line elevates Buick’s models in new ways. The Enclave mid-size SUV, for instance, is transformed into a luxurious ride that rivals its higher-end competitors. Here are some of the best aspects of the 2018 Enclave Avenir.
Artwork on wheels
Bearing the same standard 3.6-liter V6 engine that other iterations of the 2018 Enclave possess, the Enclave Avenir still maintains 310 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque, though its suspension can be enhanced to a Continuously Variable Real-Time Damping chassis.
The addition of high-end aesthetics doesn’t compromise its performance; instead, it upgrades the Avenir’s style. The addition of 20-inch aluminum wheels with premium Pearl Nickel finish, a three-dimensional mesh grille and a dual moonroof with rear fixed skylight make the SUV an attractive sight to behold. Signature LED headlamps with Evonik lighting technology illuminate the path ahead.
The lap of luxury
Where you’ll notice the most substantial difference on the Avenir version of the Enclave is in its cabin. From its Chestnut leather-appointed seating to the polished wood-toned accents, the interior gives a high-class impression. Special Avenir badging manifests itself on the exterior and interior for enhanced finesse.
You can access the information and entertainment you desire from the touch of your fingertips, thanks to the easily readable eight-inch color touchscreen of the Buick Infotainment System and Navigation. There’s even a bright, digital screen for the Driver Information Center to advise you about your Enclave’s status while your smartphone powers up on the Enclave Avenir’s wireless charging pad.
To see all the modifications that the Avenir label brings to the 2018 Enclave, schedule a test drive. You’re sure to leave with a new appreciation for the Buick brand.
