Introduction

The Buick Envision is a midsize/compact crossover, bigger than the popular Encore hatchback, smaller than the three-row Enclave wagon. Envision is narrow for its class and a couple of inches shorter than its front-wheel-drive crossover cousins, the Chevy Equinox and GMC Terrain.

Envision is built in China and the vast majority of them are sold there.

It’s well-assembled and has a sweet ride, but the driving dynamics are average. It lacks features seen on the Lexus RX, Acura RDX, and Nissan Murano. It weighs 3800 pounds and can tow 1500 pounds when properly equipped.

All-wheel drive is available. Front-wheel drive is standard.

The base engine is a 2.5-liter four cylinder making 197 horsepower. The fun and confident engine is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four making 252 horsepower, all-wheel-drive only. Both engines are mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission.

The all-wheel drive is a twin-clutch system that splits power between the rear wheels, called torque vectoring, for better control in corners, not for better traction in mud or snow. The 2.0 turbo also uses Buick’s sophisticated HiPer strut front suspension that counters torque steer, mainly on front-wheel-drive models.

The 2.5-liter engine’s available all-wheel drive is a basic system.

The 2.5-liter with front-wheel drive gets an EPA-rated 22 miles per gallon City, 29 Highway, and 25 Combined, nothing to brag about. The 2.0 turbo with all-wheel drive gets 20/26/22 mpg.

In crash testing, the Envision gets five stars from NHTSA. It gets all top scores from the IIHS, and with the optional automatic emergency braking system, gets Top Safety Pick+. By then you’re pushing $50k.

Lineup

The 2018 Buick Envision ($34,015) comes standard with power and heated cloth seats and rearview camera. (Prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.) The 2.5-liter engine comes on base, Preferred ($35,870) and Essence ($37,720) models. Front-wheel drive is standard, all-wheel drive is available.

The 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with twin-clutch torque-vectoring all-wheel drive comes as Preferred ($37,720), Essence ($39,570), Premium ($42,320) and Premium II ($44,960). Premium versions get air conditioned leather seats, automatic emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control. The Driver Confidence Package, with automatic braking and adaptive cruise control, is available only on the Premium II.

Walkaround

Envision is eye-pleasing but not double-taking. A deep shoulder line and rear roof pillar are vaguely European, with a line of thin chrome trim around the windows that’s suggestive of the BMW 3. At the front, a petite waterfall grille is flanked by LED daytime running lamps that flow upward into fenders with iconic faux portholes.

The rear taillamps are like blobs floating in space. LED accent lights are connected by a wide metallic bar studded with a Buick logo. It’s inoffensive but uninteresting.

Interior

The instrument panel is a dramatic asymmetric sweep of controls, and a mish-mash of GM-generic switchgear. The sporty three-spoke steering wheel looks cool, too bad the handling doesn’t back it up. Fabric upholstery comes on the two lower models, with faux wood trim, while the others get leather in brown, black or tan, which doesn’t feel particularly nice. Big swaths of real wood trim and ambient lighting beautify the cabin on the Premium models. A climate control panel uses capacitive touch switches.

The 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen, with busy graphics, sits high on the dash. Buick’s IntelliLink is one of our favorite systems, for its simple menus and plug-and-go Apple CarPlay.

The Envision is a bit narrow, which you can feel in the rear seat. The rear seat slides on a track for legroom. The rear seat will hold three adults, squeezed but with good headroom, and reclining.

There’s an excellent 26.9 cubic feet of space behind the rear seat, and 57.3 cubic feet with the rear seat folded, numbers that belie its exterior size.

It’s very quiet inside. We pushed it over some of the worst asphalt we’ve seen in a while, and didn’t hear one creak or rattle. Its doors slammed with the solid thunk we’ve come to expect from GM.

Driving Impressions

We found the optional turbocharged 2.0-liter feels confident and competent. The exhaust note is muffled and distant, releasing a light thrum under hard acceleration. There’s some turbo lag before the power hits, but when it does it’s smooth. This engine is used in other GM cars from the Chevy Malibu to Cadillac CT6. The 6-speed automatic transmission is always smooth.

We haven’t driven the 2.5-liter in the Envision but we have experience with this engine in other GM cars and weren’t impressed. Its 197 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque doesn’t sound like a lot for a 3800-pound crossover.

Envision’s strength is its excellent ride, its composure on choppy roads. Even with the bigger 19-inch alloy wheels and all-season tires, there’s not much road noise.

We drove an all-wheel-drive Premium on gravel roads, and had no problems with grip. The system is front-wheel-drive based, but sends power to the rear when traction is needed there. And then splits that power between rear wheels to help cornering and control.

Never mind the inviting steering wheel, the Envision isn’t into spirited cornering. However there’s not much body lean, and the electric power steering is steady, whether in a sweeper or switchback The system can counter-steer in crosswinds..

Summary

Nice cabin, good ride, solid 2.0-liter turbo, smooth six-speed automatic, average handling, forgettable styling, unimpressive fuel mileage, eyebrow-raising price. Made in China.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
