Though the redesigned 2018 Buick Enclave is a better executed family SUV, it is a little too soft and big to satisfy in the city.
The Enclave is a comfortable and roomy people-hauler. Seats provide good support in the front and middle rows, though those in the third row aren’t padded as well in the backrests. The center seats are captain’s chairs with flipper armrests. As such, the Buick version of this vehicle seats a maximum of seven, while the Chevy boasts eight. Access to the third row can be managed by shimmying between the second-row seats, but it’s a lot easier by releasing the forward-tilting right-side seat.

Buick last fielded a wagon 22 years ago: the V-8–powered, rear-drive Roadmaster Estate. Such models can usually be identified by the wood-grain vinyl covering most of their 18-foot-long sides and by the octogenarian behind the wheel.
General Motors' Buick division has used Avenir as a sub-brand for its Enclave large SUV – and to good effect.
One of my favorite cars is the green 1970 Buick Estate wagon, woodgrain and all, that co-starred in the movie, The Way Way Back. It's a classic America family car so familiar to Baby Boomers and Gen-Xers.
