5 reasons to buy the 2021 Buick Envision

1. Standard driver-assistance features

While you might expect to pay extra for driver-assistance features like rear parking sensors, forward-collision mitigation, and blind-spot monitoring, the 2021 Buick Envision comes standard with this equipment. This small crossover SUV even comes equipped with a standard safety alert seat that vibrates the driver's seat cushion when a safety issue is detected. For more adaptive cruise control, look for the Avenir's optional Technology II Package.

2. Plenty of creature comforts

Inside the 2021 Envision's cabin, you'll find plenty of standard equipment to make the ride even more enjoyable for drivers and passengers alike. This includes adjustable front seats and plenty of lumbar support for longer road trips. For added comfort, the Avenir trim even comes with driver's seat massage functions, ventilated front seats, and heated front and rear seats.

3. Turbocharged engine power

All three trims (the Preferred, Essence, and Avenir) on the 2021 Buick Envision are equipped with the same capable engine: a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder at 230 hp. This engine delivers plenty of power and quick acceleration to make for a more enjoyable ride. And while front-wheel drive is standard, all-wheel drive is optional on all three trims for those who prefer a little more traction and confidence in adverse road conditions.

4. Luxurious features galore

While not technically classified as a luxury SUV, the 2021 Buick Envision is certainly equipped like one. On its base Preferred trim, you'll find standard features such as a power-adjustable driver's seat, seamless smartphone integration via wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto, and an eight-inch touchscreen display. To get even more indulgent features, check out the range-topping Avenir, which is outfitted with a driver heads-up display, built-in navigation system, and a wireless device charging pad.

5. Spacious and accessible cargo area

For a small SUV, the 2021 Envision offers a decent amount of cargo storage space. Behind its rear row, you'll find a full 25.2 cu-ft of storage space, which is great for hauling anything from groceries and luggage to camping gear and more. Need more room for longer items (like golf clubs or a longer piece of furniture)? No problem! Simply fold the rear seats down to maximize cargo space at 52.7 cu-ft.
