The Buick Enclave competes with some other luxury-liner crossovers, domestics in particular.
The Ford Flex and Lincoln MKT come naturally to mind, with head-turning looks and even more infotainment options than the Enclave, with a little better use of their interior space and noticeably better interior finishes.
The Volvo XC90's related to those Ford vehicles, but it's an aging design with less available space and relatively low fuel economy--and this year, without its former V-8 option.
The Lexus RX 350 only seats five, but it's the crossover that started it all, and still deserves a look if the third-row seat is something you'd give up for good passenger space and competent if unexciting performance.
