The 2019 Buick Enclave has an uncommon position in a 3-row SUV segment. It’s far more luxurious than similar sized Honda Pilot or Ford Explorer, bit its price or status is nowhere near the high-end luxury models like the Audi Q7. The Enclave offers a spacious cabin, smooth ride and powerful drivetrain with good handling.
Furthermore, the interior is feature-rich with the latest high-tech and driver-assist systems. If you want a 3-row, 7-passenger SUV with a refined sense of style, a modern interior, with good handling and smooth ride of a midsize sedan, the 2019 Buick Enclave is the perfect vehicle for you.

The new 2019 Buick Enclave rides on a 120.9-inch wheelbase and measures 204.3 in general length. The new model is large, and yet graceful exterior styling takes-off a bit of that largeness. The traditional Buick waterfall design is put away, simply because this design is getting old. Now, new Buick comes with a more contemporary opening with wings extending from either side of the tri-shield logo.
Furthermore, if you choose the top-ranking Avenir you’ll get a smooth-looking 3D mesh grille. The roofline is glossier and the overall appearance is more like a tall sports caravan than a squarish SUV. In a way, it’s like Mazda CX-9 but only on a grand scale. Also, the front fascia gets design cues from the concept Avista and the bumper is more horizontal than before.
