2017 Buick Enclave

Pros: Exceptionally quiet cabin offers more room than most class competitors; smooth ride quality with good driving dynamics for the size

Cons: Aging basic design; large dimensions can make close-quarters maneuvering tricky; some interior materials not as nice as the best in the premium midsize SUV class

CG Says: Buick Enclave is essentially unchanged for 2017. A new Sport Touring Edition appearance package is available on Leather and Premium models. Enclave improves upon the strengths of its GM cousin, the Chevrolet Traverse, by providing tangible upgrades in luxury and style. Its composed-for-its-size driving dynamics and impressive passenger and cargo versatility make it one of the more practical vehicles in its class. The Enclave’s basic design dates back to 2008, and it feels long in the tooth compared to newer-design rivals. However, a redesigned Enclave is expected to arrive as a 2018 model.
