A great choice for families who want a lot of space and a luxurious ambience, but who don’t want to pay the luxury-brand premium will find the 2017 Buick Enclave a great option worth investing in. you will find the following review useful in terms of engine specs, exterior and interior designs, and MSRP estimate details.
There are lots of factors families in the market should consider before heading to their preferred dealer. These details may revolve around fuel consumption, versatility, safety, luxury, and cargo capacities. But what about interior space and ride quality? If you are looking for all of the above features in one package and your family is large enough to require an eight-passenger seating capacity, you will, without a doubt, find the 2017 Buick Enclave a solid choice.
It tops the segment in terms of offering a serene and smooth ride, and to add icing on the cake, does so without making you break the bank. See, the new 2017 Buick Enclave offers one of the best value you can ever get in the market without making you bleed for it. Although similar to some extent to both the Chevrolet Traverse and the 2017 GMC Acadia, notable differences are conspicuous throughout its exterior and interior design, and ride quality.
Interior wise, you will get comfortable and supportive seats that ensure you get optimum driving experience regardless of the terrain, as the Enclave’s suspension is built to soak up bumps like a proper land yacht. And unlike what you get on most three-row SUVs, it comes with a spacious third row bench.
Regrettably, there are some areas where the Enclave will certainly get a beating from rivals such as in the cumbersome feel, a finicky infotainment system, and small climate and audio controls. Therefore, it would be wise to weigh your priorities first before making a binding decision. Other alternatives worth looking at include the 2017 Acura MDX, 2017 Toyota Highlander, the 2017 Ford Explorer, and the 2017 Dodge Durango.
