2018 Buick Envision vs. Its Competition

Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The five-seat Buick Envision is priced and sized against some formidable competition.

Its broad range stretches between mass-market and luxury brands, meaning it can square off against a Ford Edge or Nissan Murano all the way up to a Lexus RX or Volvo XC60.

Against the Ford and Nissan, the Buick provides a quieter ride and a few more luxury features.

The Lexus and Volvo are more stylish, but also a bit pricier once options are added on.

Throw in the versatile Jeep Grand Cherokee for a full day of shopping.

Quick Specs
The 2018 Buick Envision is a comfortable, roomy five-seat crossover that may not be the best in its class but is still worth a look.
The 2018 Ford Edge has an eager feel and crisp design; safety scores and Sport ride quality give pause.
Only poor crash test scores keep the Grand Cherokee down, as this talented family hauler offers luxury and utility and buyers can choose off-road capability, track talent, or even more luxury.
The Lexus RX makes a style-conscious statement like never before, and it hasn’t lost its grip on good manners.
The 2018 Nissan Murano adds better active safety to complement its sharp looks and easy-driving nature.
With the new 2018 XC60, Volvo has cached all the XC90’s good data, and trimmed some fat from its code.
