Top Five Reasons to Choose Buick Envision
As a compact crossover, the Buick Envision competes in the most popular and competitive automotive segment in the U.S. Fortunately, the Envision is designed to be the Buick of this category with a premium exterior and interior appearance, smooth ride, and quiet operation. Buick GMC of Rochester presents five great reasons to choose a Buick Envision.
The Envision’s design conveys a sense of premium refinement. Behind the signature Buick grille and low-profile headlights, two subtle creases define the contours of the lower body, and it all flows with a sense of elegance. Bright accent trim fully surrounds the side windows rather than stop for no reason or go off on a tangent. Other bright accents on the power rocker panels, outlining the grille intakes and along the roof rails, further enhance the upscale appearance. That is unless you opt for the Sport Touring Package, which blacks out these accents and wheels for a more aggressive appearance. In both cases, the design is also enhanced by the 109.4-inch wheelbase, which is noticeably longer than most of its competitors enhancing the overall visual aesthetic.
The flowing design carries over to the interior, where controls, vents, and information displays are placed as though they came about organically. The touchscreen is integrated into the dash rather than sitting on top of it and is within easy reach. Analog gauges provide you with an instant read without flashy graphics. On the center console, the intuitive electronic shifter opens up space between the driver and front passenger and enables a useful storage area underneath. Available added touches include quilted
leather with both heat and ventilation for front passengers, a panoramic sunroof, and a head-up driver’s information display.
Wireless compatibility for Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™ plus keyless entry & start means you neither have to fumble for your keys or your phone as you enter and start your Envision. On Essence and Avenir grades, the hands-free theme also applies to the tailgate. Approaching the rear with the key fob on your person, the Envision will project a Buick logo below the rear bumper. Block the projection with your foot for a moment, and the tailgate will automatically open, giving you access to 25.2 cubic feet of cargo space or 52.7 cubic feet with the rear seats down.
Buick has long prided itself on the quietness of its models and has applied what they’ve learned over the decades to the Envision. You will maintain your “indoor voice” even at high cruising speeds or hear the nuanced details of your favorite music. Buick’s QuiteTunning technology includes:
- Improved body stiffness and triple door seals
- Laminated windshield and front side glass
- Isolated five‐link rear suspension
- Active Noise Cancellation – Emits a sound through the audio system that is in reverse phase to the remaining ambient noise to cancel it out.
Every Envision is powered by the ECOTEC turbocharged 2.0-liter Inline-4 engine. Its 228 horsepower is more powerful than you will find standard in all of its leading competitors. The responsive 9-speed automatic transmission keeps the power accessible at all times. Available on every trim, and the majority of all models in our inventory, the Buick all-wheel drive has an active twin-clutch that automatically adjusts torque to each wheel to optimize traction and respond before slip occurs, giving you confidence when the weather and road surfaces become challenging. With the drive selector, you can match the vehicle’s behavior to your mood situation. You might set “Sport” when you are driving alone or “Touring” when you have passengers. There is also the “Snow/Ice” setting because, well, we are in Minnesota.
