2024 Buick Envista Avenir

The coupe-inspired SUV craze hasn’t hit the mainstream subcompact SUV segment yet, but Buick’s looking to change that with the all-new 2024 Envista. The swoopy and stylish SUV is set to go on sale in the U.S. later this summer with a starting price tag of $23,495 (prices include destination), making it the most affordable Buick SUV available, undercutting the Encore and the Encore GX. The new Envista’s budget-friendly pricing will also extend to its range-topping Avenir trim that’s priced under $30,000.

The Envista Avenir with front-wheel drive will start at $29,695. Seeing a quasi-luxury SUV with coupe-inspired styling start at less than $30,000 is impressive in 2024. Spec the Avenir with every available option – like White Frost Tricoat paint, a cargo liner, all-weather floor mats, a sunroof, wheel locks, and a collapsible cargo area organizer – and the SUV can reach $32,560. The grunt of that comes from the moonroof ($795) and the available Avenir Advanced Safety Package ($795) that adds adaptive cruise control, rear cross-traffic alert, and power-adjustable heated exterior mirrors.

When you compare the Envista Avenir against other range-topping subcompact SUVs, it stands out as a good value option. Alternatives like the Mazda CX-30 Turbo Premium Plus ($36,775), Hyundai Kona Limited ($30,285), and the Volkswagen Taos SEL with 4Motion ($35,830) have higher starting price tags than the Envista Avenir.

For its sub-$30,000 price tag, the Envista Avenir comes well-equipped. It comes with an 11-inch touchscreen, an eight-inch digital instrument cluster, heated front seats, a wireless charging pad, a heated steering wheel, a wireless charging pad, leather upholstery on the front seats, and automatic climate control. The only thing that makes us pause about its content list is the lack of standard adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert. Other than that, we think the Envista Avenir comes with features that one would expect to see from a range-topping trim for a subcompact SUV.

The only major issue we think the Envista Avenir will have when it goes on sale is when it comes to performance. The only engine the SUV will be available with is a turbocharged 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine that makes 136 horsepower. That’s not a lot of power, even for a subcompact SUV. In the segment, the CX-30 is one of the more powerful SUVs available thanks to its optional 250-horsepower turbocharged engine. But even the CX-30’s base 191-hp engine is far more powerful than the Envista’s. Additionally, the Envista will only be available with FWD.

Despite its expected performance, the 2024 Buick Envista should do well on the market, courtesy of its swanky design, list of features, and budget-friendly pricing.
