When shopping for a new SUV to get up to seven of you around Thornhill, North York, Markham, Richmond Hill, and the Greater Toronto Area in considerable style and comfort, the 2024 Buick Enclave should be top of your list of contenders. Along with class-leading interior space, the Enclave delivers an opulent experience for occupants in all three rows and levels of standard equipment you’ll find hard to believe at the price.
The 2024 Buick Enclave is a model that straddles the divide between mass-market and full-blown luxury, which helps to place it in a class of its own. But although the Enclave has a foot in both camps – so to speak – it’s hard to see it as anything other than leaning closer toward the luxury end of the spectrum. The exterior styling is fresh, modern, and classy, and it’s more of the same when you step inside.
The interior is subtle and understated, but it’s impossible to ignore the premium look and feel of the impressive cabin. Two chairs in the second row restrict the maximum seating capacity to a spacious seven. Enclave offers a class-best maximum cargo capacity of 2,758 litres when the second and third-row seats get folded away. Unlike many other three-row midsize SUVs, the Enclave’s third-row seats are big enough to accommodate adults.
The 2024 Buick Enclave lineup consists of the entry-level Essence, the mid-range Premium, and the top-of-the-range Avenir models. All three get all-wheel drive as part of their standard equipment, and they all feature the same suitably premium powertrain. The engine under the hood of all three versions of the 2024 Enclave is a 3.6-litre V-6 that provides the Buick crossover with 310 horsepower and 266 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine features stop/start technology for improved fuel economy, and the power gets sent to the wheels through a standard nine-speed automatic transmission.
The Enclave’s powertrain has more than enough in its locker to comfortably handle a full complement of passengers and cargo. All three models also feature Buick’s QuietTuning system that combines several technologies to help reduce, block, and absorb unwanted noise to deliver a truly premium experience for everyone inside. However, none of these premium aspects negatively impact the overall capability of the Enclave, as it can still tow up to 2,268 kg when properly equipped.
The standard specification of the Essence trim makes a mockery of its “entry-level” status. Some rivals’ mid-range and higher trim levels struggle to match Enclave’s base specification. Standard features include heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, keyless open and start, perforated leather upholstery, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
Of course, the Premium and Avenir versions of the 2024 Enclave take it to another level entirely. The mid-range and top trims come with a standard Bose performance-enhanced premium 10-speaker sound system, navigation, rear camera mirror, HD Surround Vision, a head-up display, and more. All models also get an impressive set of standard safety features, including front & rear park assist, front pedestrian braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, and Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert.
The 2024 Buick Enclave is a three-row premium midsize crossover with all the bases covered and then some.
