2015 Buick Enclave Safety

9.0
Safety

While the 2015 Enclave hasn't yet been rated by organizations that crash test cars, the vehicle has gone unchanged since last year, when it received some of the best scores you can find in any vehicle on the road today.

Last year, all models received 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 very good crash-test scores, the Buick Enclave is one of the safer vehicles on the road today.

With the addition of new touchscreen interfaces, the Enclave gained a standard rearview camera in 2013. 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.

Both the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) have released crash-test data for last year's model, which we expect to be mirrored for 2015. 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 didn'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 rating. We've adjusted our safety score downward, only for that reason--and we'll update it if the Enclave is tested.
