The 2019 Buick Envision’s more powerful engine, improved transmission, and lower price tag pique our interest.

Pros
Attractive styling
Should still be very quiet
Lower price helps
9-speed automatic could aid fuel economy, engine response

Cons
Turbo is AWD-only
Price climbs fast
Narrow interior
Doesn’t do much to stand out

The seven-seater Nissan X-Trail is currently the biggest SUV the firm builds. It’s a good-looking family car that rivals the Hyundai Santa Fe, Kia Sorento and the Skoda Kodiaq.
The X-Trail’s interior has a similar design to the one found in the Nissan Qashqai, so it’s simple to use if a little uninspiring to look at, and the car’s standard five-inch touchscreen display means there isn’t a sea buttons to contend with. While there is plenty or room for five adults inside, the two seats that fold out from the boot are best reserved for children. Even with them in place, though, the X-Trail has enough boot space for a few suitcases.

Pros
Comfortable
Well-equipped
Decent off-road

Cons
Third row seats are a bit cramped
Not exactly head-turning looks
CVT automatic is not as good as rivals with DSG

By:

The X-TRAIL TL is clearly not a 4WD as our beach run proved – and the diesel could be both more responsive at low rpm and more economical.
However, this is a comfortable, quiet, smooth and sure-footed medium SUV with plenty of room for holiday gear in the back.

Pros
Supple ride
Comfortable, versatile interior
LED headlights

Cons
Lack of low-rpm grunt
Fuel consumption higher than claimed
Foot-operated parking brake
