2017 BUICK ENCLAVE
Do you need a big three-row crossover SUV that can shuttle lots of people and cargo? The 2017 Buick Enclave could be for you. Besides its utilitarian abilities, it’s also pleasant to drive.
The Buick Enclave is a good SUV. It comes with a long list of standard infotainment and entertainment features, like a 6.5-inch touch screen and a Wi-Fi hot spot. The cabin is spacious, offering one of the largest cargo holds in the class. The third row is even roomy enough for adults – something very few 3-row midsize SUVs can say. Leather trims the dash and can be found throughout the cabin, which is a welcome touch.
The interior has a third-row seat that provides suitable accommodations for larger kids and smaller adults, something few rival three-row models can claim. Getting back there is made easier by wide-opening rear doors and the standard second-row captain’s chairs that can slide up and out of the way. If it’s hauling capacity you’re looking for, the Enclave offers a generous 23.3 cubic feet of space behind the third row and a downright cavernous cargo hold with all the rear seats folded down.
Every Enclave comes standard with second-row captain’s chairs and seven-passenger capacity. A second-row bench seat, which increases passenger capacity to eight, is optional on the Leather and Premium models.
Standard equipment for the Convenience trim level, which is only offered on front-wheel-drive versions, includes 19-inch alloy wheels, automatic xenon headlights, heated side mirrors, rear privacy glass, a power liftgate, rear parking sensors, remote engine start, tri-zone automatic climate control, an eight-way power driver seat (plus two-way lumbar adjustment), a two-way power front passenger seat, a leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, cruise control and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
