Among small luxury crossover SUVs, the 2018 Buick Envision might be worth your attention. Though its exterior styling is generic, it comes with a generous amount of features for the price and has an attractive interior trimmed in high-quality materials. It slots between the compact Encore and larger Enclave in Buick's portfolio. As such, it's pretty easy to maneuver around town but still has a decent amount of interior and cargo space.

Pros
The cabin is quiet at highway speeds
You get a lot of features for the money

Cons
Weak acceleration with base engine
Unsettled ride quality at times
Cargo capacity is below average for the class
