2023 Buick Enclave vs. Its Competition

Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

Slotted between mainstream and upscale brands, the 2023 Enclave competes against a wide range of models.

The Acura MDX may cost more, but it’s not quite as spacious and its tech can overwhelm.

There’s a lot to like about the Toyota Highlander—especially in hybrid form—but it doesn’t match the Enclave’s interior finish.

Look to the Kia Telluride and Hyundai Palisade for an upscale driving experience, though fuel economy isn’t great.

Finally, the Subaru Ascent remains a solid buy—so long as you don’t mind its occasional rough edge against fresher rivals.
