Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Buick Enclave is a good-looking SUV for families and one of the better-aging GM cars in recent memory.The Buick Enclave has lived longer than many thought it would. Crossover SUVs are hot properties these days, and aging models typically don't perform as well in the showroom as newer models.
But the Enclave has been killing it, remaining one of Buick's best sellers almost a decade down the road. It's our favorite of GM's big front-drive-based utility vehicles, which also includes its siblings, the Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia.

Pros
Classy exterior
Spacious second row captain's chairs
Quality materials
Smooth ride

Cons
Nosedive in braking
Can add up in options
Lagging behind in fuel economy

Do you need a big three-row crossover SUV that can shuttle lots of people and cargo? The 2017 Buick Enclave could be for you. Besides its utilitarian abilities, it's also pleasant to drive. But read more to learn why some rival models might serve you better.
The 2017 Buick Enclave gets a new Sport Touring edition with a satin black grille and distinctive 20-inch chromed alloy wheels with satin black detailing.

Pros
Smooth ride even when the road isn't
Seating for up to eight and cargo space to match
Peace of mind that comes with top safety scores.

Cons
It's a big crossover and drives like one
Disappointing acceleration and fuel economy
Infotainment and climate controls are behind the times
Interior quality could leave some wanting more.

The 2017 Buick Enclave ranks 10 out of 18 Midsize SUVs. In spite of segment-leading cargo space, a handsome interior, and a rich offering of standard equipment, the Buick Enclave sits in the middle of the midsize SUV segment because its V6 can struggle under a full load.

Pros
Composed, comfortable ride
Spacious seating for up to eight
Lots of room for cargo

Cons
Fuel economy is below average
