The 2020 Buick Envision has a pleasantly innocuous personality, but it’s outclassed in terms of value and performance.

Pros
Pleasant styling
Composed ride
Decent turbo punch
Good infotainment system

Cons
Safety tech should be standard
Thirsty turbo-4
Gets expensive fast
Rivals generally more compelling

The name sounds odd, but the Touareg offers a comfortable ride and spirited performance—something we all can understand. Its 3.6-liter V-6 makes 280 hp and is mated to an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. The Touareg is large, comfortable, and solid—plus it’s equally at home both on and off the pavement. A standard touchscreen infotainment display is functional but dated; the optional adaptive cruise control and automated emergency braking, however, are well engineered and effective.
