Expert reviews: 

No significant changes for 2021.

Pros
Generous cargo and passenger room
Quiet and smooth ride
Plenty of standard features
Lots of device charging solutions

Cons
Many advanced safety features only available on top trim levels

Thirstier than V6-powered competitors

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.

Pros
Refined ride and handling
Spacious, quality interior
Comfortable seats
User-friendly infotainment system
Many standard safety features

Cons
Mediocre fuel economy

For its next trick, Hyundai will turn its already luxurious Palisade SUV into an even more upscale three-rower with the addition of the top-spec Calligraphy trim for 2021. The Calligraphy model adds unique exterior lighting elements, boldly-designed 20-inch wheels, a distinct grille finish, and standard all-wheel drive. Inside, buyers of the enhanced model will notice a faux-suede headliner, quilted-leather upholstery on the doors and seats, and a perforated leather wrap on the steering wheel.

Pros
Intuitive dashboard layout, class-leading features, every trim is teeming with value.

Cons
Intrusive wind noise on the highway, styling may not appeal to everyone, tight door pockets.

New range-topping Calligraphy trim level.Restructured option packages.

Pros
Plenty of space for adults in all three rows
Lots of standard and optional high-tech features
Comfortable seating and ride quality

Cons
Handling isn't as crisp as with some rival SUVs
