2022 Buick Envision vs. Its Competition

2022 Buick Envision
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

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

The stylish Volvo XC60 has a handsome profile and light-footed performance—and it can be had as a plug-in hybrid.

Successor to the Lincoln MKC, the Lincoln Corsair is posh, quiet, and calm, and soon will offer a plug-in hybrid model.

The 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.

The Lexus NX is new this year, with a sleeker shape and a returned fuel-sipping hybrid.

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