2020 Buick Envision Interior

How Many People Does the Envision Seat?

The 2020 Buick Envision seats five people on cloth upholstery. 

Heated, eight-way power-adjustable seats and a leather-wrapped 

steering wheel come standard too. Leather seats, ventilated front 

seats, heated rear seats, and a heated steering wheel are available.

The seats are comfortable, and there’s a good amount of head- and 

legroom in both rows, though taller backseat riders might feel a bit 


Envision and Child Car Seats

The Buick Envision has two complete sets of LATCH car-seat 

connectors on the rear outboard seats and an upper tether on the 

rear middle seat. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave 

the system the second-lowest rating of Marginal for ease of use. 

The tether anchors are easy to find, but they can be confused with 

other hardware, and the lower anchors are set too deep in the seats.

Envision Interior Quality

Although this Buick has a handsome cabin, it doesn’t look or feel 

as luxurious as some rivals.

Envision Cargo Space

This SUV has 26.9 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats, which 

is great for the luxury compact SUV class. Folding them down 

opens a total of 57.3 cubic feet. That number is more in line with 


Envision Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation

The base Envision comes richly equipped. Standard features 

include an 8-inch touch screen with Android Auto and Apple Car 

Play smartphone integration, a WiFi hot spot, satellite radio, a six-

speaker sound system, Bluetooth, and four USB ports. Navigation, 

wireless device charging, and a premium seven-speaker Bose 

stereo are available.

Using the IntelliLink infotainment system is easy, thanks to a 

straightforward menu layout and some well-placed physical 


Envision Performance

Envision Engine: From OK to Good

The base, Preferred, and Essence trims come with a 2.5-liter four-

cylinder engine that produces 197 horsepower and 192 pound-feet 

of torque. It’s mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. 

Premium and Premium II models gain a stronger 2.0-liter 

turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes 252 horsepower and 

295 pound-feet of torque. The turbocharged option comes with a 

nine-speed automatic transmission.

The base engine is OK but can struggle to bring this crossover 

SUV up to passing speed on the highway. Envision models with 

the available turbo-four feel more energetic. The nine-speed 

automatic draws praise for its smooth shifts.

Envision Gas Mileage: Thrifty

With its base engine and front-wheel drive, the Envision gets an 

EPA-estimated 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway. 

Those are great figures for the luxury compact SUV class. Opting 

for all-wheel drive lowers fuel economy estimates to 21 mpg in the 

city and 27 mpg on the highway. The stronger engine gets 20 mpg 

city/25 mpg highway.

Envision Ride and Handling: Relaxed, Not Spirited

This Buick has a gentle ride, and its suspension soaks up most road 

flaws. However, it’s not particularly sporty, and the steering can 

feel sluggish on twisty roads. Front-wheel drive comes standard, 

and all-wheel drive is available.

2020 Buick Envision Reliability

Is the Buick Envision Reliable?

The 2020 Buick Envision does not yet have a predicted reliability

The Envision is covered by a basic warranty lasting four years or 

50,000 miles and a power train warranty lasting six years or 

70,000 miles.

How Much Does It Cost to Insure a Buick Envision

The cost of insuring a Buick Envision will depend on a variety of 

factors, including your deductible, the level of coverage that you 

want, and the type of insurance that you choose. Your age, gender, 

location, credit score, and driving record can also have an impact 

on your insurance rates. Check out our car insurance guide to find
