Expert Quotes:

"Good" in all tests performed

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 Buick Enclave is one of the better vehicles on the road, in terms of safety.

Both the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) have released crash-test data for the 2014 model year. The NHTSA gives the Enclave five stars overall, and the big family wagon gets the same rating on each of the agency's tests.

However, while in the past the IIHS has named the Enclave one of its Top Safety Picks, it doesn't return the honor for the 2014 model year. The Enclave hasn't been subjected to a small-overlap front-impact test, now required to earn the very top scores. We've adjusted our safety score downward, only for that reason.

New safety technology complements the standard gear built into the Enclave. All models have curtain airbags that protect all three rows of seats, front-seat side airbags, a center-front airbags mounted on the inboard side of the driver seat, and stability control.

With the addition of new touchscreen interfaces, the Enclave gained a standard rearview camera last year. On the options list are blind-spot monitors with cross-traffic alerts, and this year, newly available forward-collision alert and lane-departure warning systems.

 

Conclusion

The Buick Enclave has great crash-test scores from the NHTSA; it's one of the safest vehicles you can buy.

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.
