Expert Rating

3.0 (Good)
21 City / 27 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.

Choosing Your Buick Envision

The Buick Envision seeks to build on the success of its smaller crossover, the Encore, and receives sharper styling and an enhanced powertrain. The China-made crossover is shorter and narrower than many of its segment competitors. However, its flexible interior helps it adapt to the customer’s needs.

A 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission is a carry-over engine applied to the first three trim levels. It generates 197 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque, while the two Premium trims receive an updated 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. It produces 252 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque and puts that power through a nine-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. Just in case any owners are interested in the art of power-braking their crossover, Buick claims this update improves zero-to-60 mph times by half a second.

The front-wheel-drive and 2.5-liter engine drivetrain team up to achieve EPA estimates of 22 miles per gallon city, 29 mpg highway, and 26 combined. Adding all-wheel drive, a $1,750 option, reduces those figures to 21 city, 27 highway, and 24 combined. The turbocharged engine, with its standard all-wheel drive, is rather thirsty at 20/25/22 mpg city/highway/combined.


The base trim is called the Buick 1SV and starts at $32,990 (all prices include the $995 destination charge). It comes equipped with 18-inch aluminum wheels, a power tailgate, HID headlights with Buick’s LED signature lighting, and LED taillights. The seats are partially covered in synthetic leather while eight-way power adjustment and heating are added to the front seats. Proximity entry with push button start, active noise cancellation, dual zone climate control, an eight-inch touchscreen, a six-speaker audio system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and XM Radio are also included. Remote start, OnStar, and 4G LTE WiFi round out the notable standard features. White is the only exterior color offered.


The Preferred trim, priced from $34,495, can be considered the entry point for many retail customers who prefer an exterior color other than white. All-wheel drive is available but beyond that, there are few feature gains seen with the Preferred trim outside of a hands-free power liftgate and rear park assist. An optional Active Package ($640) enables the Envision to tow up to 1,500 pounds.


Climbing up the next rung is the Essence trim, priced from $36,795. Newly included features are perforated leather seating, tri-zone climate control, heating for the rear outboard seats and steering wheel, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. The Active Package ($640) returns, and a Road Trip Package ($370) adds all-weather floor mats and roof rack rails. Available options include a panoramic moonroof ($1,495) and a navigation system ($495).

Premium I

The Envision Premium starts at $41,695, and is only available with all-wheel drive and the upgraded 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Also included are 19-inch wheels, LED headlights, and additional safety equipment such as forward collision warning, lane keeping assist, and lane departure warning. A larger eight-inch display resides in the instrument cluster and a 110-volt outlet ensures quick charging for those devices, which can now be played through a premium Bose seven-speaker sound system. The Active Package and Road Trip Package are still offered.

Premium II

Starting at $44,595, the Premium II is the top tier and receives active park assist, wireless charging, navigation, and a head-up display. The front seats receive ventilation and a manual thigh extension. Available for the first time is the Driver Confidence Package ($1,545) that includes adaptive cruise control, a surround-view camera system, and forward automatic emergency braking.

CarsDirect Tip

The 2019 Buick Envision makes some improvements for the new model year. However, the exclusivity of the active safety package is a bit of a head-scratcher and its meager fuel economy is surpassed by competitors with similar power. The base trim, in its white-paint-only glory strikes us as the most appealing trim.
