Expert Rating

4.0 (Excellent)
MPG
17 City / 23 Highway

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2015 Buick Enclave OVERVIEW

The award-winning Enclave has allowed Buick to firmly establish their presence in the entry-level luxury market. Its handsomely designed exterior, easy highway manners, and decent fuel economy all helped to make it competitive amongst its peers. However, where the Enclave really differentiates itself from similar luxury CUVs is its spacious comfort and quiet ride.

What's New for 2015

Changes to the Enclave are minor. Leather and Premium models now feature a heated wood steering wheel as standard equipment.

Choosing Your Buick Enclave

Buick continues to offer only one engine in the Enclave, a 3.6-liter V6 that produces 288 horsepower and is paired with a standard six-speed automatic transmission. Together they deliver an EPA estimated 17 mpg city and 24 mpg highway with the standard front-wheel drive, or 16 mpg city and 22 mpg highway with the optional all-wheel drive.

The Enclave comes in three available trim levels:

Convenience

The Convenience trim level is well equipped for a base model. It includes: 18-inch wheels, tri-zone automatic climate control, a rearview camera with park assist, power-adjustable driver's seat, remote vehicle starter, a power liftgate and a 7-inch color touch audio screen with IntelliLink communications. An industry-first "center-side" airbag provides enhanced protection to the driver and front-seat passenger during opposite side impacts. Also standard is Buick's signature "QuietTunning" sound suppression, a process designed to reduce outside noise and vibration helping create a remarkably quiet interior cabin.

Leather

The primary upgrade within the mid-range Leather trim is, of course, leather upholstery. Extra features included at this level are: 19-inch aluminum wheels, heated front seats, memory seats and mirrors, a power-adjustable passenger seat, and side blind zone alert with rear cross traffic alert. In addition to the standard seven-passenger seating configuration, the Leather trim level offers the option of eight-passenger seating.

Premium

The ultimate trim package for the Enclave starts with the amenities of the Leather package and adds extras like: heated and cooled front seats, a Bose premium 10-speaker sound system with navigation, forward collision alert, lane departure warning, heated outside rearview mirrors and articulating headlights. A host of additional upgrades such as: rear seat entertainment system, power moonroof, eight-passenger seating and more are available as individual add-ons.

CarsDirect Tip

While we appreciate the amenities at the Premium level, they do add significantly to the Enclave's base price. We would split the difference with a mid-range Premium model, or go for the flat-out value of a well-equipped base Convenience.
