Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Pros
Powerful turbocharged engine
Handsome updated styling
Standard active safety tech

Cons
Luxury Avenir trim will be expensive
The brand doesn't command as much respect as some competitors

Buick has completely redesigned the Envision SUV for 2021, imbuing it with an eye-catching design that's far more handsome than the bland 2020 model featured.We haven't had the chance to sample the all-new Envision, but we suspect that the mid-range Essence model will likely satisfy most buyers. Those seeking a luxury ride with all the trimmings should turn their attention to the top-flight Avenir. When we know more about the Envision's standard and optional features, we'll update this story with results.

More American-sized proportions
Sharper style

Cons

Is it bigger inside?
