The 2021 Buick Enclave is the smoother, smothering three-row crossover in GM’s stable.

Pros
Great look
Comfortable ride
Good touchscreen
Handsome interior

Cons
Automatic braking not available on all models
Limited body colors on base version
Spendy Avenir
Not very fuel-efficient

Buick's three-row family SUV rolls over to 2021 with only a few tweaks. Premium and Avenir models now come standard with power-adjustable lumbar support for the front seats and a massage feature, while the air ionizer is no longer available. Those two top models also receive a formerly optional package of driver-assistance features—including automated emergency braking and lane-keeping assist—as standard.

Pros
Upscale exterior styling,
plenty of tech features are standard,
large cargo bay.

Cons
Down-market interior materials,
no standard driver-assists on lower trims,
V-6 engine isn't particularly efficient.

The SQ5 receives a styling refresh for 2021.Updated infotainment system.Wireless smartphone integration and integrated toll-road payment system debut.

Pros
Impressively comfortable ride for a sport-tuned SUV
Generous space for passengers
Luxurious but restrained interior design
Nimble handling

Cons
Lack of touchscreen limits usefulness of smartphone integration

By:

Like the regular Q5, the high-performance SQ5 receives a host of exterior updates for 2021 to freshen its look. New exterior lighting elements, a tweaked grille and bumpers, and new wheel designs differentiate it from last year's model. The top-spec Prestige gets OLED taillights as standard, and two new colors join the palette: Ultra Blue and District Green.

Pros
Handsomely-equipped cabin,
comfortable ride,
decent fuel economy for a performance SUV.

Cons
Not overly spacious,
turbo V-6 doesn't match rivals' horsepower,
handling not as sharp as it could be.
