2015 Buick Enclave vs. Its Competition

Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Enclave sets out to replace the minivan in your driveway with something a little more luxurious, and lot less attached to a stigma.

There are several large crossovers in the category, too.

The Dodge Durango is a little more rugged and offers a HEMI V-8.

The Acura MDX doesn't look quite as suave, but competes most closely in side and price, and offers undeniable reliability.

The Audi Q7 offers a diesel engine and German sensibilities, but isn't quite as large inside.

Then, there's the Ford Flex and Lincoln MKT, both of which offer polarizing styling that you'll either love or you'll hate, but both offer more technology than the Buick, and more engaging drivetrains, too.

The 2014 Acura MDX is more focused than ever on its mission of keeping the entire family comfortable, content, and entertained—and yes, that still includes the driver.
There's much to love about the 2014 Audi Q7 and few if any failings; it does everything a three-row crossover vehicle should do, with great elegance and sophistication—and skips the faux-rugged nonsense.

Boring isn't in its vocabulary: the 2014 Ford Flex makes owning a family wagon a statement of style.
The provocative Lincoln MKT has undeniable charm--a fantastic cabin, great infotainment features, and paddle-shifted EcoBoost power--but you have to buy into the look.
