Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Forget about its Chinese roots; the Envision is a comfortable, well-appointed crossover. But it's also expensive, and there are some interior compromises.
Let's not beat around the bush: The 2017 Buick Envision is the first mainstream vehicle assembled in China and exported to the United States.
Introduced last year but expanded for the 2017 model year to a full lineup of base, Preferred, Essence, Premium, and Premium II trim levels, the Envision may sound like a brand of perfume, but it's really a mid-size crossover.

Pros
Perfect fit for the Buick lineup
Quiet interior
Comfortable ride quality
Attractive styling

Cons
Price on par with genuine luxury rivals
Would you buy a Chinese-made American car?
Turbo is AWD-only
Advanced safety tech costs big bucks

The 2017 Buick Envision ranks 12 out of 14 Luxury Compact SUVs. The 2017 Buick Envision gets lost near the back of the luxury compact SUV pack. It’s comfortable to drive and nicely equipped, and it offers good value for the money, but in a sea of over-achievers, the Envision is just average.

Pros
Peppy turbocharged engine
Comfortable, spacious seats
Excellent safety ratings
Lots of tech features

Cons
Underpowered base engine
Dull handling

The 2017 Buick Envision is an all-new vehicle in the lineup that slots between the smaller Encore and the midsize Enclave SUVs. The Envision combines a practical size with a long list of standard features that make it a value-packed, near-luxury SUV worth considering.

Pros
Manageable size makes it easy to drive and maneuver
The cabin is as quiet inside as premium luxury SUVs
You get a lot of features for the money.

Cons
Cargo capacity is merely average for the class
Engine output is adequate but far from impressive.

For 2017, the current-generation Toyota Highlander Hybrid receives its first significant update. Its gasoline engine is more powerful and efficient, and the exterior styling has a fresh look to it. There are also a couple of new, more affordable trim levels this year. Finally, the Toyota Safety Sense suite of accident avoidance features is now standard equipment.

Pros
Impressive fuel economy for a three-row crossover
Just-right size for many families
Added peace of mind from standard accident-avoidance tech
Quiet and compliant ride

Cons
Price premium unlikely to be made up with gas savings
Third-row seat isn't as roomy as those of many competitors
Touchscreen and other controls may require an extra-long reach

The 2017 Toyota Highlander Hybrid ranks 1 out of 18 Midsize SUVs. The Toyota Highlander Hybrid becomes even more versatile and affordable for 2017, with the addition of two new trims and an eighth seat. It has an impressive list of family-friendly features available, along with a spacious, well-built cabin. Unsurprisingly, it delivers class-leading fuel efficiency. In a nutshell, this is a safe, reliable SUV that just happens to be a hybrid.

Pros
Energetic, fuel-efficient powertrain
Impressive list of standard safety features
User-friendly, upscale interior

Cons
More expensive than most midsize SUVs

A thorough refresh keeps the 2017 Toyota Highlander ahead in a very tough game. Under the hood, a new V6 engine puts out more power and connects to a new 8-speed automatic transmission. A new suite of standard safety systems includes active cruise control and automatic collision avoidance, combining with Top Safety Pick + crash-test rating from the IIHS for peace of mind. There's also seating for eight passengers, with decent cargo space behind the third row. The interior design includes tons of clever features to make living with the Highlander easier, and the exterior gets a new grille that's, well, really big. Put it together, and Toyota's midsize SUV will continue to be a best-seller for all the right reasons.

Pros
The 2017 Toyota Highlander's emphasis on safety complements its existing strengths of comfort, economy, reliability and resale value. The new engine gets more power and better fuel economy, and the exterior styling is sure to turn heads.

Cons
The Highlander can haul eight passengers, and it can carry a decent amount of stuff, but it lags competitors like the Honda Pilot in both. Additionally, if you need real off-road capability, or towing capacity greater than 5,000 pounds, check out full-size SUVs like the Chevrolet Tahoe or Toyota Sequoia.
