Expert Quotes:

The Enclave's navigation option, with its touch screen LCD, is very solid.

With a base price in the high-$30,000 range, the Buick Enclave isn't inexpensive. At that price it does include a fair amount of luxury and infotainment content--but it's not difficult to push the family wagon's pricetag past $50,000.

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. All versions include standard power windows, locks, and mirrors; cruise control; air conditioning; satellite radio; an AM/FM/CD player; and Bluetooth with audio streaming.

A rearview camera system, a USB port, HD Radio, and voice recognition are also standard. A navigation system is a relatively inexpensive option, as is a ten-speaker Bose sound upgrade.

IntelliLink is the big news for some shoppers, as it brings the Enclave's interior up to the leading edge in connectivity. IntelliLink ties smartphones into the Enclave's audio and Bluetooth controls, through a relatively simple interface (as we've found in other models). Once a phone is connected, the Enclave has well-integrated Bluetooth hands-free calling and audio streaming functionality, and access to apps for Pandora and Stitcher audio. This year, it gains Apple's Siri EyesFree voice search and the ability to read out text messages.

Major options include a navigation systemand 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.

 

Conclusion

Luxury touches and a user-friendly infotainment system are some of the pricey Enclave's strengths.

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.
