The Buick Enclave was the first of a series of new designs of Buick that was introduced as a model 2008.

2017 Buick Enclave Interior
The Enclave rides smoothly, and the handling is responsive reasonable. On narrow roads, it feels like a big car, but in curves not excessively lean. It is a heavy vehicle and its mass is felt in the way it handles, takes off and stop. The Enclave has a functional third row for adults, but the third row is not a place where we would choose to sit for hours on end. Within the 2017 Enclave is awash in leather and space. The 23 cubic feet of cargo space when the seats are up 115 cubic feet when the seats are folded are downright useful, although we’d hesitate to Nick those soft sheets.

For a cold-weather state, buyers must be noted that AWD automatically adds add the Study Group package, which heated seats and a heated steering wheel.

When the Buick Enclave was launched in 2007, many of the now-standard safety features and tests have not yet existed. Still, the Buick Enclave over the years managed to keep up with many of them.
