Cons

Which Envision does Edmunds recommend?

We consider the optional turbocharged 2.0-liter engine the best choice for the 2019 Buick Envision because the base 2.5-liter engine lacks smoothness and struggles to move the Envision with authority. For this reason, we recommend the Premium and Premium II trims, which are the only ones to come with the turbocharged engine and new nine-speed transmission.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

If you're in the market for a small luxury SUV, the 2019 Buick Envision certainly deserves a look. With a newly restyled front end and new taillights, it comes with a generous number of features for the price and has an attractive interior trimmed in high-quality materials. It fits in between the much smaller Encore and the larger three-row Enclave in Buick's lineup. As such, it's pretty easy to maneuver around town but still has a decent amount of interior and cargo space.

We recommend opting for the Envision's turbocharged 2.0-liter engine and nine-speed automatic because we think it's more competitive with other vehicles in this segment. With this powertrain, the Envision is similarly priced to luxury crossovers such as the Lincoln MKC and the Volvo XC60 but still less than what you'll likely pay for a Range Rover Evoque or BMW X3. While there's nothing truly special about the Envision to make it stand out in this class, it checks many of the luxury SUV boxes.

Trim levels & features

The 2019 Buick Envision is a midsize crossover SUV with seating for five. Five trim levels are offered, starting with the base (1SV) Envision trim. It is only available in front-wheel drive and comes with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine (197 horsepower, 192 pound-feet of torque) mated to a six-speed automatic. All-wheel drive can be added to the Preferred and Essence trims. The Premium and Premium II trims have all-wheel drive as standard and come with a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine (252 hp, 295 lb-ft) and a nine-speed automatic.

Standard features for the base Envision trim include 18-inch wheels, xenon headlights, foglights, auto-dimming and heated mirrors, a panoramic sunroof, a hands-free liftgate with adjustable opening heights, rear parking sensors, keyless ignition and entry, remote start, dual-zone automatic climate control, power-adjustable and heated front seats, and 60/40-split folding rear seats.

Standard tech features include OnStar communications (with 4G LTE connection and a Wi-Fi hotspot), Bluetooth, a rearview camera, an 8-inch touchscreen, a rearview camera, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, four USB ports (two are charge-only), Bluetooth, and a six-speaker sound system with satellite radio.

The Preferred trim is essentially the same but is eligible for more options. The Essence trim adds three-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, driver-seat memory settings, heated outboard rear seats, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.

Stepping up to the Premium trim gets you 19-inch wheels, LED headlights, front parking sensors, automatic wipers, a larger driver information display, a seven-speaker Bose premium audio system, a 110-volt household power outlet, a forward collision alert system, and a lane departure warning and intervention system.

At the top of the range, the Premium II trim adds automatic high beams, wireless charging, an automated parking system, a navigation system, a head-up display, an extendable thigh support for the driver's seat, and ventilated front seats. This trim is eligible for the Driver Confidence package that includes adaptive cruise control, a top-down parking camera system, and a forward collision mitigation system with automatic braking.

Some features are available on supporting trims as options. Other add-ons include side assist steps, a roof rack and a cargo cover.

Trim tested

Edmunds has only limited experience with the 2019 Buick Envision. The following is our first take on what's significant about it and what you can expect.

Driving

The turbo 2.0-liter engine delivers good power. It's enough to merge onto highways without issue. The base 2.5-liter engine is considerably slower and less refined. Around turns, the Envision can feel a bit heavy.

Comfort

The seats are well-cushioned and supportive for long drives. The suspension ably soaks up bumps in the road, and the cabin is impressively quiet at highway speeds.

Interior

Interior design and materials are up to entry-level luxury car standards. Forward visibility is excellent, but the thick rear roof pillars will obstruct the rearward view. There's plenty of space in the rear seats for three adults, and the slide/recline function should keep them comfortable.

Utility

There's an average amount of space behind the rear seats, but folding them down reveals 57.3 cubic feet of total cargo space, which is smaller than average. Interior storage is generous, with plenty of large bins and pockets to hold your personal items.

Technology

Buick's GM-based infotainment system is easy to use. The inclusion of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto makes operation even easier. New wireless charging is a welcome addition.

Buick Envision vs. the competition

2019 Lincoln MKC

Buick Envision vs. Lincoln MKC

In terms of style, the Lincoln MKC certainly looks the part of an entry-level luxury crossover. And on the comfort front, the MKC delivers a supple ride from its optional adaptive suspension. But it lags behind the competition in driver assistance offerings and engine performance. Still, for life in a suburban environment, the MKC is worth a look.

Compare Buick Envision & Lincoln MKC features

Buick Envision vs. Volvo XC60

The Volvo XC60 drips with Swedish flair, both inside and out. But there's more to the XC60 than just style. It's also packed with technology and Volvo's legendary safety features. Marks against the XC60 come from higher interior noise levels and a smallish cargo capacity. It can also get more expensive than the Buick in its higher trim levels.

Compare Buick Envision & Volvo XC60 features

Buick Envision vs. Acura RDX

Completely redesigned for 2019, the RDX is thoroughly modern inside and out. Slightly larger and more comfortable than the previous generation, the RDX comes standard with Acura's suite of driver assistance technologies. When equipped with all-wheel drive, the RDX can be quite the performer, too. But its styling might not appeal to buyers who want something more subdued, and its multitude of tech features could be a little imposing to unfamiliar buyers.

More about the 2019 Buick Envision

The 2019 Buick Envision is a five-passenger crossover SUV that fits between the smaller Encore and the larger Enclave. Standard feature highlights for the base Envision trim include a 197-horsepower 2.5-liter engine, auto-dimming and heated mirrors, a power liftgate, rear parking sensors, keyless entry and ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, OnStar telematics, an 8-inch touchscreen, a rearview camera, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a six-speaker stereo. The Preferred trim is essentially the same but is eligible for more options.

The Essence trim adds tri-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, driver-seat memory functions, heated outboard rear seats, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.

Stepping up to the Premium trim gets you a 252-hp turbocharged engine, a new nine-speed automatic, LED headlights, front parking sensors, a larger driver information display, a seven-speaker Bose premium audio system, a 110-volt household power outlet, a forward collision alert system, lane departure warning and lane keeping assist.

In terms of price, the Envision is similar to the Acura RDX and the Lincoln MKC. The Premium trims are about as expensive as the base BMW X3 and the Audi Q5, but the Buick does offer more in the way of features.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Buick Envision?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
