Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The MU-X may look and feel a bit more basic than the Everest or Fortuner, but its tough Isuzu truck underpinnings is this SUV’s secret weapon. Isuzu also builds big commercial engines, designed to be reliable and robust, and that DNA is this engine.

Pros
Great new engine
Capable off-roader
Decent third row

Cons
Cabin is starting to age
Boot is smaller than some rivals
No advanced safety equipment

Forget about its Chinese roots; the Envision is a comfortable, well-appointed crossover. But it's also expensive, and there are some interior compromises.
Let's not beat around the bush: The 2017 Buick Envision is the first mainstream vehicle assembled in China and exported to the United States.
Introduced last year but expanded for the 2017 model year to a full lineup of base, Preferred, Essence, Premium, and Premium II trim levels, the Envision may sound like a brand of perfume, but it's really a mid-size crossover.

Pros
Perfect fit for the Buick lineup
Quiet interior
Comfortable ride quality
Attractive styling

Cons
Price on par with genuine luxury rivals
Would you buy a Chinese-made American car?
Turbo is AWD-only
Advanced safety tech costs big bucks

The 2017 Buick Envision ranks 12 out of 14 Luxury Compact SUVs. The 2017 Buick Envision gets lost near the back of the luxury compact SUV pack. It’s comfortable to drive and nicely equipped, and it offers good value for the money, but in a sea of over-achievers, the Envision is just average.

Pros
Peppy turbocharged engine
Comfortable, spacious seats
Excellent safety ratings
Lots of tech features

Cons
Underpowered base engine
Dull handling

The 2017 Buick Envision is an all-new vehicle in the lineup that slots between the smaller Encore and the midsize Enclave SUVs. The Envision combines a practical size with a long list of standard features that make it a value-packed, near-luxury SUV worth considering.

Pros
Manageable size makes it easy to drive and maneuver
The cabin is as quiet inside as premium luxury SUVs
You get a lot of features for the money.

Cons
Cargo capacity is merely average for the class
Engine output is adequate but far from impressive.
