2020 Buick Enclave vs. Its Competition

2020 Buick Enclave Avenir
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

Splitting the difference between mainstream and luxurious, the 2020 Buick Enclave squares off against some impressive crossover SUVs.

It’s related to the Chevy Traverse, which is less costly and offers many of the same virtues.

The Mazda CX-9 has a classy feel, but it lacks the Enclave’s spacious interior.

The Subaru Ascent and Honda Pilot are well-packaged and priced right, even if they lack the refinement of the Enclave.

If your budget stretches, the Acura MDX delivers an upmarket feel for a price that’s not too much higher than the Buick.
