The 2023 Buick Envision competes with a slew of premium crossovers, and the best of the bunch is the Volvo XC60 for its stately styling and electrified powertrain options.

Cadillac’s XT4 shares nearly the same proportions as the Envision, but falls short of positioning itself fully in the luxury class—the Envision is a better deal.

The Lincoln Corsair puts comfort at the top of its charms, which makes it a great touring crossover, and an available plug-in hybrid makes it efficient around town.

The redesigned Lexus NX has plenty of powertrain options, including a hybrid and forthcoming plug-in hybrid, and the in-car technology is much improved.

Lacking a hybrid choice, the Acura RDX still hits most luxury notes despite its vexing dual touchpad that controls infotainment.
