Expert Quotes:

'Good,' frontal offset; 'good,' side impact

Five stars overall; four stars, frontal; five stars, side impact

noticeable [brake] fade after multiple stops -- the Flex and CX-9 perform better

There's chrome trim everywhere, though, which means blinding reflections when the sun's at certain angles.

The 2012 Buick Enclave might just be one of the safest, sturdiest family vehicles you can get. With top crash-test ratings and a very strong list of features, the Enclave has the makings of a very safe vehicle.

Standard equipment on the Enclave includes front-seat side airbags, full-length side-curtain airbags, and electronic stability control. OnStar's Vehicle Diagnostics even monitor the stability control system.

The Enclave performs well in crash tests from both major U.S. safety programs, too. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has given it top 'good' ratings in all categories, as well as its Top Safety Pick designation, and it's been awarded four- and five-star ratings in federal tests--including a top five-star result in the new side pole test.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
