What We Don't

Big size means it can be cumbersome to maneuver; unremarkable interior quality for a luxury model; finicky electronic shifter

What's New in the 2019 Buick Enclave?

The Enclave was completely redesigned last year, so it effectively goes unchanged for 2019.

Which Enclave is the Best?

There's so much standard equipment in the base Preferred trim level that we'd be tempted to keep things simple, but the Essence's leather upholstery and blind spot warning system are worthy upgrades for a reasonable price. Otherwise, the top two trims are priced deep into luxury territory, and they really only compare well if you truly value the Enclave's superior interior space.

2019 Buick Enclave vs the competition

2019 Volkswagen Atlas-- If the Enclave's size appeals, then the Atlas is the next-closest thing. Its solid, big-vehicle feel behind the wheel is also similar, as is its premium vibe in upper trims.

2019 Chevrolet Traverse-- If you appreciate the Enclave's size and basic feature content, look to the Traverse. Basically, it's a mechanically similar vehicle, but with lower-quality interior trappings.

2019 Mazda CX-9-- Although not considered a luxury crossover, top CX-9 trim levels do a very convincing impression. It manages to balance a sporty driving experience with upscale comfort, 3-row seating and excellent fuel economy. Just don't expect comparable size.

Used Audi Q7-- The Q7 has much less space than the Enclave. It's also much pricier, so we'd be talking about a used orcertified pre-ownedQ7 here. Nevertheless, the stylish Q7 is a solid, truly luxurious 3-row SUV. If you can swing the most recent model introduced for 2017, you'll get one of the most technologically advanced SUVs around.
