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.

2018 Buick Envision OVERVIEW

Quietly introduced in 2016, the compact Buick Envision crossover SUV is making a mark for itself. Placed between the subcompact Encore and three-row Enclave SUVs, the right-sized Envision gives the tri-shield brand a strong three-model SUV presence.

What's New for 2018

The 2018 Buick Enclave continues unchanged.

Choosing Your Buick Envision

Buick offers the 2018 Envision with standard front-wheel drive and optional all-wheel drive. Available in 1SV, Preferred, Essence, Premium I and Premium II trims, the Envision comes with two engine choices and room for five.

Cargo space measures 26.9 cubic feet behind the second-row seat or 57.3 cubic feet behind the first row. This model has a towing capacity of 1,500 pounds.

The standard engine is a 2.5-liter four cylinder generating 197 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque. Paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, this model returns an EPA-estimated 22 miles per gallon in the city and 29 mpg on the highway or 21/27 with all-wheel drive. All-wheel drive, available on the Preferred and Essence, is a $1,850 option.

An available 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine comes with both Premium trims and generates 252 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, this all-wheel-drive-only model makes an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.

1SV

Priced from $34,990 (including the $995 destination charge), the Envision 1SV follows the General Motors pattern of offering a low-cost, limited-content trim for fleet service. The 1SV comes reasonably well equipped, but it's completely devoid of options. You can't even change the color – it's only available in Summit White. All-wheel drive isn't even available.

So don't count on seeing an Envision 1SV on dealer lots. But if you do, it will offer automatic halogen headlamps, fog lights, heated side mirrors, a power liftgate, and 18-inch aluminum wheels. Buick also equips this trim with keyless entry and push-button start, imitation leather seats, heated front seats with eight-way power adjustability, dual-zone climate control, and a rearview camera.

The audio package includes an eight-inch color touchscreen, satellite radio, six speakers, two USB ports, and an auxiliary input jack. OnStar guidance, 4G LTE with a built-in hotspot for connecting up to seven devices, a 110-volt outlet, and smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also included.

Preferred

For not much more money, the $36,865 Encore Preferred builds on the 1SV with five standard exterior colors and available all-wheel drive. This trim also supplies options not available with the base model. Other than those tweaks and a wide range of available dealer-installed accessories and accessory packages, the Preferred is unchanged from the 1SV.

Essence

Coming in at $38,715, the Essence includes a heated steering wheel, leather upholstery, three-zone climate control, driver seat memory, heated outboard rear seats, and blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. 18-inch aluminum wheels and chrome roof rails brighten up the exterior. This trim is available in four different interior color schemes.

The options list grows in a few important ways on the mid-range Essence. A panoramic sunroof comes in at $1,495, while a navigation function for the eight-inch infotainment system rings up at $495. That said, you should pass on it, since Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard with their own more intuitive navigation systems.

Premium I

Priced from $43,315, the Premium I includes the turbocharged engine and a trick twin-clutch all-wheel-drive system that can vector torque for improved agility in slippery conditions. There's also a tweaked front suspension to better handle the 2.0-liter's higher torque output.

This model adds 19-inch aluminum wheels, a front parking sensor, a seven-speaker Bose audio system, forward collision warning, lane keep assist with lane departure warning, and a safety alert seat that vibrates to warn the driver of impending obstacles. Navigation and a sunroof remain the only factory-installed options.

Premium II

With a price of $46,350, the Premium II adds HID headligths, ventilated and cooled front seats, navigation, and a head-up display.

You need to get up to the range-topping trim to even gain access to an options package in the Envision, but it's worth it. The $1,545 Driver Confidence Package adds adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, and a surround-view camera system. The panoramic sunroof is the only other optional goodie.

CarsDirect Tip

The Envision Essence offers many of the amenities customers want in a premium SUV. Opt for all-wheel drive and your price will come in around $40,000. The Premium I is a good choice for customers that need more power, although the Premium II and its sole options package isn't a great value.
