A stylish new addition to the premium compact crossover SUV segment will soon appear on the roads and highways in and around Yellowknife in the shape of the all-new 2024 Buick Envista. This stunning addition to the Buick family checks every box for a compact crossover with luxury aspirations, apart from one very important one: the price. It would be wrong to call the all-new Envista cheap, as that wouldn’t be appropriate for such a premium offering. However, the new compact Buick delivers high quality at a price we’re sure you’ll agree is more than competitive in its class.
The 2024 Buick Envista is a brand-new marque that rethinks what a luxury car in the subcompact SUV class delivers. It has the space for cargo and the practicality of an SUV, but its proportions are more like those of a sedan, making it look both fast and stylish. The Buick Envista showcases the brand’s fresh and contemporary new design language, illustrated by the vehicle’s low-slung shape, forward-tilting nose, and streamlined grille design. The vehicle has a sculptural beauty that permeates its entire structure, particularly its muscular fender shapes and flowing waistline. Long windows allow plenty of natural light to flood the cabin, which is spacious enough to retain that all-important SUV utility, and the materials used throughout are of the highest quality. Attention to detail is evident throughout the Envista, with nice touches like handmade stitching, emblems on the head restraints, and a standard flat-bottom steering wheel. The ultra-wide touchscreens create an immersive technology experience, while the available QuietTuning technology offers a calm and unruffled journey for the driver and their passengers.
The 2024 Envista employs a thoroughly modern powertrain that’s intelligent, efficient, and effective. The engine in question is a high-performance 1.2-litre turbo-three, and it comes mated to a standard six-speed automatic transmission. With 136 horsepower and 162 lb.-ft. of torque, this small-displacement turbocharged engine provides excellent responsiveness and a pleasurable driving experience. The engine delivers responsive driving characteristics and good fuel economy, and the standard Watts Link suspension system provides excellent levels of stability in addition to a ride that is far quieter and more isolated than some rivals. Integrating cutting-edge chassis and suspension technologies results in agile and pinpoint accurate handling. However, perhaps even more importantly, the Envista boasts exceptional fuel economy, with a combined fuel economy of 7.8 L/100 km or even better.
Three versions of the Envista are available: the Preferred, the Sport Touring (ST), and the Avenir. The Preferred trim level provides an economical premium SUV at a tempting starting MSRP designed with and made of impressively high-quality materials. The Sport Touring (ST) trim takes the Envista in a sportier direction with all-black 18-inch alloy wheels and an optional 19-inch wheel option. The Avenir trim is the highest level of luxury available in the Envista lineup, and standard features include bespoke 19-inch Pearl Nickel alloys, a power liftgate, a moonroof, rain-sensing wipers, and a Watts Link suspension system. The Buick Driver Confidence package is standard on all trim levels. This package includes various safety and driver-aid technologies, including Automatic Emergency Braking and Lane Keep Assist.
The 2024 Buick Envista brings premium compact SUV quality to a broader audience thanks to its affordable price. But despite its relative affordability, the Envista still exudes an upscale aura, with all models featuring standard adaptive cruise control, an 8-inch diagonal Driver Information Centre, and an Ultrawide 11-inch diagonal Buick Infotainment System.
