2022 Buick Enclave vs. Its Competition

2022 Buick Enclave
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Buick Enclave compares with the new Acura MDX, which bristles with confidence at the wheel and to the eye.

The Enclave’s related to the Chevrolet Traverse, but is a softer interpretation and more luxurious.

The Subaru Ascent is a good value, with standard all-wheel drive, but it’s not as spacious.

The Lincoln Aviator gets plug-in hybrid tech and a marvelous interior.

The Mazda CX-9 has all the grace of the Enclave, but not the same space.
