Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive

The Buick Enclave is more about comfort than swiftness. Peak engine power occurs relatively high in the rev range, while peak torque emerges at a much lower engine speed. That means the Enclave isn’t as emphatic when attempting to pass on the highway, as it is at pulling away promptly from a stoplight.

Handling is relatively accomplished for an SUV of this size and heft, and the Enclave doesn’t lean excessively in curves. More important, the ride is smooth.

Hit the brakes hard, and you get a quick reminder of this vehicle’s mass, in the form of considerable nosedive. On narrow roads, too, the Enclave inevitably feels and handles like a large vehicle.

Choose optional 20-inch wheels, and the ride tends to turn a bit more harsh. They are not our preference. Expect a blissfully quiet experience in any case, brought about by Buick’s Quiet Tuning approach. An Enclave can be equipped to tow up to 4,500 pounds.

Fuel economy trails some competitors, but estimates are respectable for a three-row model that weighs almost 5,000 pounds. With front-wheel drive, the Enclave is EPA-rated at 15/22 mpg City/Highway, or 18 mpg Combined, which is close to other large crossovers. All-wheel drive drops the EPA Combined estimate to 17 mpg, with the City/Highway figures unchanged.

Walk Around

New Car Test Drive

Even though the Enclave is now in its ninth season, it’s a fine-looking vehicle. Sweeping body lines, which come across as both smart and soothing, are particularly enticing when compared with the similar but relatively shapeless Chevrolet Traverse. Starting with a chromed waterfall-style grille and tasteful shoulder lines outside, the Enclave opens to an adeptly appointed interior with a sensibly configured seating arrangement.

The new Sport Touring option adds a little more color and brightness to what is already a tempting premium crossover SUV, with space for up to eight occupants.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive

Like the exterior, the richly appointed Buick Enclave cabin has aged nicely. Somewhat ambiguously Art Deco in visual nature, but unabashedly upscale, the dashboard is topped by an analog clock and trimmed with attractive wood. Classy yet conservative in tone, the cabin is awash with soft-touch materials and neat upholstery stitching.

Depending on configuration, either seven or eight passengers can ride in comparative comfort. Front seats are on the soft side, intended to suit various body types. In upper trim levels, front seats are eight-way power-adjustable, heated and ventilated, with memory functions.

Second-row occupants sit a bit higher, for fine views to the front. Leg support is good, and headroom plentiful. Captain’s chairs are standard, but a bench can be specified for eight-passenger capacity.

Third-row space is adequate for two adults, but they probably won’t be pleased to travel far. Getting into the third row, and out again, isn’t a totally dignified endeavor. With all three rows of seats in position, cargo volume totals 23 cubic feet, expanding to 115 cubic feet with second and third rows folded down.


New Car Test Drive

The Buick Enclave is big and comfortable inside, smooth and quiet underway, perfect for hauling a family. It’s our favorite among GM’s three related large crossover SUVs, largely because of its quality materials and quiet ride. Many costly options are offered, to add to the ample standard-equipment list. If equipped like similar luxury SUVs, an Enclave can easily sail past the $50,000 mark. It’s a bit long in the tooth, however, and a new model is on the horizon, so watch for deals.
