There can only be so many new vehicles for sale in Woodbridge, Vaughan, Brampton, Kleinburg, Mississauga, and the Greater Toronto Area, where you look at them and need help finding something lacking. However, the 2024 Buick Enclave is a premium offering in the midsize crossover SUV segment that gets an awful lot right with class-best interior space, seven adult-sized seats, a suitably powerful engine, and outstanding levels of standard features and equipment.
Anyone can see that the 2024 Buick Enclave is very attractive on the outside with its subtly stylish and contemporary lines. Still, any vehicle that has prestige aspirations needs to deliver big on the inside as well. If an upscale interior is what it takes to be taken seriously as a premium offering, the current Enclave passes that particular test with flying colours.
The interior of the Enclave is undeniably luxurious but also relatively understated and straightforward, with an almost complete absence of bling and gimmicks. The whole look and feel of the Enclave interior shout quality, from the tasteful colour combinations and high-quality materials that are even more upscale than you’d expect at this price point. The Buick Enclave may sit on the fence between mainstream and genuine luxury contenders in the segment, but the only thing that gives the game away is the lack of a full-blown luxury price tag.
Shoppers can choose between three trim levels in the 2024 Buick Enclave family, which all share the same impressive powertrain. The Essence is the model we must refer to as the entry-level, the mid-range model is the Enclave Premium, and the range-topper is the Enclave Avenir. Regardless of your chosen trim level, all-wheel drive is part of the standard specification here in Canada.
Under the hood of every 2024 Enclave is a 3.6-litre V-6 producing 310 horsepower and 266 lb.-ft. of torque, which goes to all four wheels through a nine-speed automatic transmission. The powertrain handles a full complement of passengers and cargo with ease, and the Premium Ride suspension that all three models feature enhances the ride and handling on challenging road surfaces and in less-than-ideal weather conditions.
It’s impossible to be a contender in the highly competitive midsize crossover segment without a good level of high-tech features and connectivity these days. The 2024 Buick Enclave comes generously equipped in every area, with the availability of Alexa Built-In reinforcing the Buick’s connectivity credentials. To get the Enclave to play your favourite music, navigate to your chosen destination, control your smart home devices, give you the latest news headlines, or make a phone call, all you have to do is ask.
The Enclave’s luxury ambience is enhanced by Buick’s QuietTuning technology with Active Noise Cancellation, which keeps unwanted road, engine, wind, and other noise down to a minimum. While the base model’s standard equipment is extremely impressive, it’s hard to resist the allure of the Premium or Avenir models. HD Surround Vision, a head-up display, perforated leather upholstery, a Bose performance-enhanced premium 10-speaker audio system, heated front and second-row seats, a heated steering wheel, an 8.0-inch colour Driver Information Centre are standard with both models. They also get an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The 2024 Buick Enclave is an extremely impressive three-row midsize crossover SUV, and it can make a strong case for itself in any company. The exterior styling is understatedly premium, and the Enclave gets better and better the more you learn about it.
