2020 Buick Envision vs. Its Competition

2020 Buick Envision
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

Straddling the fence between mainstream and luxury, the 2020 Buick Envision has a host of competitors.

The Hyundai Santa Fe is a compelling deal especially in ultra-luxe Ultimate trim, which undercuts an equivalent Buick by five figures.

The Mazda CX-5 offers optional turbo punch and a lot of equipment, though it’s short on refinement.

Luxury rivals from BMW, Audi, and Volvo don’t cost as much more than the Envision as some buyers may think, and their X3, Q5, and XC60 are strong choices worth a spot on any shopper’s list.
