Passenger and Cargo Capacity
The Envision is a midsize, two-row crossover with seating for five, and the interior room is biased toward the passenger cabin. The cargo area measures 25.2 cubic feet behind the rear seat and 52.7 cubic feet with it folded. These numbers are well below average for this class.
The Envision starts out with automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors, automatic high beams, and a vibrating safety alert in the driver seat. The Technology Package I for the Essence adds surround-view cameras, a head-up display, front parking sensors, and other items for $2,500. These features are standard on the Avenir, along with adaptive cruise control and a rearview camera mirror with washer.

The Comfort and Convenience Package for the Preferred ($1,850) includes an extra speaker and a 10.2-inch touchscreen, which are standard starting with the Essence.
The Essence's Technology I Package tacks on navigation, a nine-speaker Bose system with HD radio, and a memory card reader. All of this is standard on the Avenir, in addition to wireless phone charging.
