The optional navigation system absorbs most audio functions, but doesn't complicate their use.
The Buick Enclave looks like a reasonably good value, for an almost-luxury, three-row vehicle that starts under $37k. Standard equipment for the Enclave is pretty rich, though. Satellite radio, Bluetooth, power features and cruise control are standard across the line.
IntelliLink is the big news for some shoppers, as it brings the Enclave's interior up to the leading edge in connectivity, with a relatively easy interface (as we've found in other models), well-integrated Bluetooth hands-free calling and audio streaming functionality, and apps for Pandora and Stitcher audio. A rearview camera system, a USB port, HD Radio, satellite radio, and voice recognition are also part of the standard kit, while navigation is optional, as is a ten-speaker Bose sound upgrade.
Other major options include a navigation system, front parking sensors and remote start, along with 19- and 20-inch wheels, a head-up display (HUD), heated and cooled front seats, and a rear-seat DVD entertainment system.
Buick's done away with trim levels, so instead of opting for an Enclave CXL or CX, it's simply a matter of ordering options on the single model. Doing just that, you can easily push the price of the Enclave past the $50,000 mark.
For 2013, the Enclave gets the connectivity interface it needs to be competitive against true luxury-brand rivals.
