The 2016 Enclave, a carryover vehicle, received five stars in the front and side crash tests and four stars in the rollover crash test.
The rating applies to front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive versions of the Enclave, which is expected to arrive at Buick dealerships this summer.
Standard safety features on the 2016 Enclave include stability control, traction control, panic brake assist, a rearview camera and seven airbags, including a front center airbag. It deploys between the driver and front passenger in the event of a crash.
Optional safety features include side blind-zone alert and rear cross-traffic alert, along with forward-collision alert.
Edmunds says: Car shoppers should note that the 2016 Acura MDX earned the top five-star safety rating from NHTSA. The 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe and Lincoln MKT have not been rated.
