2021 Buick Envision vs. Its Competition

2021 Buick Envision
Robert Duffer Robert Duffer Senior Editor

The refreshed 2021 Buick Envision is part of a crowded class of premium compact crossovers.

The 2020 Lexus NX has an edgy if not garish design with a fuel-sipping hybrid, but the interior controls can be frustrating and it doesn’t have the quiet ride that defines the Lexus brand.

Successor to the Lincoln MKC, the 2020 Lincoln Corsair is posh, quiet, and calm, but it gets expensive.

The stylish 2020 Volvo XC60 has these qualities, and like the Corsair, it can be had as a plug-in hybrid.

Acura has made strides with the 2020 RDX, and hits every note except for a needlessly complex dual touchpad that controls infotainment.

The 2020 Cadillac XT4 is a missed opportunity; it’s an all-around solid pick but doesn’t come standard with the same safety features as the competition.

Quick Specs
The redesigned 2021 Buick Envision comes with more standard features and a more stylish look.
The 2020 Acura RDX is a stylish, strong-performing crossover SUV worthy of a place on any shopping list.
The dramatic lines on the Lexus NX keep it a compelling rival to pint-size luxury SUVs from BMW and Mercedes, but it could be more spacious.
The 2020 Lincoln Corsair capitalizes on calm—and caps out near $60,000.
The 2020 Volvo XC60 delivers all the feel and substance of a luxury car, without any ostentatious attitude.
