Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Buick Envision is a comfortable, roomy five-seat crossover that may not be the best in its class but is still worth a look.

Pros
Pleasant styling
Very quiet
Comfortable ride
Good value at bottom end

Cons
Price escalates fast
Oddball Preferred trim level
Safety tech only on top models
A little narrow

The 2018 Buick Envision ranked #11 in Luxury Compact SUVs. Currently the Buick Envision has a score of 7.9 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 25 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Peppy optional turbocharged engine
Comfortable, roomy seats
Lots of tech features

Cons
Underwhelming base engine
Numb handling
Less interior opulence than luxury rivals

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

Although based on an existing design, the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is an all-new plug-in hybrid vehicle.We think it's worth springing for the GT trim once you figure in a standard federal tax rebate for plug-in hybrid vehicles.

PROS
Delivers plug-in SUV utility without luxury SUV price
Offers a generous list of standard features
Sophisticated all-wheel drive offers stability on slippery surfaces
Generous warranty coverage

CONS
Limited Mitsubishi dealer network
Lower ground clearance hinders off-road ability
Regular fuel economy is underwhelming
Small gas tank limits overall range

Mitsubishi’s technology flagship, the Outlander plug-in hybrid, has arrived in the United States nearly five years after it was originally due. The vehicle itself might look rather dated (as does the rest of the Outlander lineup), but the technology within is most definitely not.

Pros
Drives electric (mostly),
speedy fast charging,
two AC outlets
comfortable ride,
quiet cabin.

Cons
Antiquated design,
queasy on the back roads,
cheap-feeling cabin materials,
off-canter engine revs.

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is a roomy SUV that’s very economical for short journeys if you can plug it in to charge the battery – it’s just a shame it looks a bit drab and doesn’t drive that well

Pros
Cheap to run on short journeys
Quiet around town
Roomy back seats

Cons
Terrible infotainment system
Unsettled on bumpy roads
Drab interior
