2024 Review: Buick Envista

The Buick Envista is an all-new model, marking a new entry-level vehicle in the Buick lineup. It’s one of the most affordable crossovers in the segment and still offers an attractive interior, good fuel economy and a quiet ride.
This front-wheel drive Envista is available in a range of three trims, all of which start at under $30,000. Despite that low price, the Envista has a nicely appointed interior, especially in the top-level Avenir, with its eight-way power driver’s seat and perforated leather seats.
Standard infotainment includes an 11-inch touchscreen, which is large for the class, with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to reduce cord clutter. This sits alongside an 8-inch digital instrument cluster in a single, long display that keeps the dashboard neat and clean, creating a quality, modern look from the moment you open the door.
The Envista is powered by a turbocharged 1.2-liter 3-cylinder engine with 162 horsepower, but don’t be fooled by those modest numbers. It’s a surprisingly peppy engine with strong acceleration and refined handling that make it fun to drive.
The well-mannered ride evens out rough road surfaces and is notably quiet, thanks to standard active noise cancellation that blocks out road and wind noise. This makes conversation with rear passengers easy, even during heavy rain, and helps keep the Envista feeling like a premium vehicle despite its low starting price.
The sleek exterior styling and sloped roofline of this crossover give it sporty appeal without cutting into rear headroom, so even taller adults won’t feel confined. There’s also room for cargo, with 20.7 cubic feet behind the 60/40 split-folding rear seats and 42 cubic feet behind the front seats.
