Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Buick Enclave carries over from the redesigned 2018 model with only minor trim and options updates, and that's a good thing. We like the Enclave's long list of standard features and its high level of in-car technology.

Pros
Generous room for passengers in all three rows
Quiet and smooth ride quality
Plenty of standard features

Cons
Some advanced safety features only available on the top trim level

Abhor the idea of a minivan? The 2019 Buick Enclave is a generously sized family crossover with a quiet interior and luxury appointments—and no sliding doors.

Pros
Balanced and well-defined silhouette
Generous third-row space
Minimalist cockpit
Confident ride and handling
Decent performance, but…

Cons
...fuel economy lags
Trims and options get pricey fast
Base model lacks most advanced safety tech
All-wheel drive is part-time only

The 2019 Buick Enclave ranked #3 in Midsize SUVs. Currently the Buick Enclave has a score of 8.5 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 17 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Comfortable, quiet, and spacious cabin
Impressive set of standard features
Lots of cargo space and in-cabin storage
Smooth performance and ride quality

Cons
Interior isn't as posh as some competitors

For 2018, the Lexus IS 300 gains a four-cylinder and rear-wheel-drive version in its lineup. In actuality, though, this is just last year's IS 200t renamed. The all-wheel-drive version still has a V6 engine, and it gets a 5-horsepower boost (to 260 hp).

PROS
Ride quality is smooth and comfortable on bumpy roads
Cabin is well-isolated from noise
Offers more features for the money compared to German alternatives

CONS
Optional Remote Touch infotainment system is distracting to use
V6 power compares to smaller turbo engines, but isn't as efficient
Handling capabilities do little to create driver excitement

The 2018 Lexus IS ranked #11 in Luxury Small Cars. Currently the Lexus IS has a score of 8.2 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 36 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Upscale interior
Quick acceleration
Cushioned ride

Cons
Subpar fuel economy
Undersized trunk
Frustrating infotainment system controller

By:

The Lexus IS needs more powertrain guts, and more styling glory, to tackle the cars it wants to take down.

Pros
Lots of standard equipment
Subtle, stylish look
Swift-shifting 8-speed
Long options list
F Sport headed in the right direction

Cons
Too many cooks under the hood
Awkward powertrain walk
Pricey options
Tight rear seats
