The 2018 Buick Envision is a five-passenger SUV designed for families. Its upscale interior keeps you at ease and its turbocharged engine makes you want to stay behind the wheel.
The 2018 Buick Envision is conservatively designed, though subtle details like the sculpted sides, intricately curved C pillar, measured use of chrome and careful proportions help bring out a degree of sophistication and elegance. Every section of the car boasts an evident and abundant attention to detail. Despite — or perhaps because of — the Envision’s overall “plain” styling, the SUV turns heads and earns second looks for only the right reasons. The interior design is just as tasteful thanks to the generous use of premium materials and the intuitive layout of the dashboard.
The 2018 Buick Envision is offered with two engines: a 2.5-liter four-cylinder rated at 197 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque and a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder rated at 252 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Both use a six-speed automatic transmission and both come with standard front-wheel drive and available all-wheel drive (AWD), in the latter case using a dual-clutch system for better power delivery. The turbo engine’s 252 horsepower put it at the very top of the segment, and with AWD the Buick Envision gets even better acceleration and traction in low-grip conditions.
A vast array of technologies is offered as standard equipment in the 2018 Buick Envision. Active noise cancellation, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, dual-zone climate control and seats with leatherette trim can all be found on the base model. There is a whole lot to unlock on higher trims as well, including adaptive cruise control, a 360-degree camera and automated emergency braking, teen driver technology and a unique safety seat that vibrates based on the direction of a hazard that is exclusive to Buick.
The 2018 Buick Envision’s balanced combination of safety technologies, convenient features, spacious and stylish design and fun performance make it an ideal vehicle for small and growing families.
