2019 Buick Envision vs. Its Competition

2019 Buick Envision
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

At around $34,000 to start, the 2019 Buick Envision undercuts most luxury rivals—at least on paper.

Optioned to the level of its competitors, it’s priced about like the desirable and stylish Volvo XC60.

The BMW X3 costs more but provides more power and a nicely finished interior.

This year’s surprise is the redesigned Acura RDX, which has sporty moves on the road but a frustrating infotainment system.

The Jaguar F-Pace’s price was hiked this year, but it’s often discounted and offers a thrifty turbodiesel engine.

Don’t discount the redesigned Hyundai Santa Fe, which in turbo-4 guise has a plush, well-executed interior and is a bargain against luxury-brand rivals.
