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 cabin has a soothing quality that's only become more convincing since its debut. The dash itself evokes a vaguely Art Deco theme, without lapsing into cliches--well, except for the analog clock up top on the dash. It's conservative and classy, even with the big touchscreen that was integrated into the cockpit last year; part of the effect comes from new interior materials, upgraded from hard plastics to soft-touch ones with stitching.

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

If we could change anything, it would come down to details. For the most part, they're just over the top enough to grab the eye without blinding it. Still, we'd find a way to mute the C-pillar, as it breaks up the pretty expanse of glass that gives the Enclave most of its grace. For sure, we'd nix the hood's "ventiports," which aren't functional and detract in an inexpensive way.
