Bottom Line

Great looking yet often overlooked in the hyper-competitive compact SUV scene, the latest Buick Envision is a smooth performer that's a better engine away from greatness.

2021 Buick Envision Review: For Your Consideration

The outgoing Buick Envision had an unenviable position in the brand’s lineup.

The challenges were threefold. For starters, it lacked the cachet of the flagship Enclave. Second—and potentially related to the first—was its status as the first Chinese-built Buick sold here. An unfair reason to wholly dismiss the car, yes, but the connection stuck. Then last year, Buick dropped the quite good Encore GX, which offered much of the Envision experience in a tidier shape. The result? Every other Buick crossover outsold the Envision in the US last year, and it narrowly avoided the same fate in Canada.

Buick is hoping to reverse the Envision’s fortunes this year with this second-generation model. Envision 2.0 targets a sweet spot right between the traditional mainstream and luxury divide. Its combination of classy looks, cocooning ride, and accessible tech makes it a much more appealing proposition in the segment.
