2015 Buick Enclave Styling

Even six years into the current design, the Enclave hasn't aged poorly, thanks to its handsome styling and sweeping lines. That's especially noticeable when you compare it the somewhat shapeless Chevy Traverse and very angular GMC Acadia, both of which share all of the Enclave's mechanical bits.

The Enclave's smooth ride and quiet cabin have been made more impressive since its debut. The dash has hints of an Art Deco theme, without being cliche. (Maybe the analog clock on the dash comes close.) It's reserved and elegant, even the big touchscreen that was added last year doesn't muddle the composition. New interior materials have been upgraded from hard plastics to soft-touch materials with stitching.

Softly styled sheetmetal and a richly detailed cabin are the highlights of the Buick Enclave's appeal.

We'd revise some of the details if we could. The interior accents are good looking without being distracting, although we'd mute the C-pillar that breaks up some of the large expanse of glass that helps give the Enclave its grace. We'd knock out the hood's "ventiports" that don't add any functionality and look like Buick designers have made a trip down to the local auto store for budget enhancements.
