2013 Buick Enclave

Overview of 2013 Buick Enclave

The 2013 Buick Enclave has very slight changes when it comes to its design and presentation for the last four years. But even if this is the case, the SUV still remains one of the top choices of drivers, and has steadily become a competitor of its class. Even though the design of the SUV is very similar from what it released in 2012, and even if the Lambda platform it prides is shared with some of its related SUV brands like the GMC Acadia and the Chevrolet Traverse, the 2013 Buick Enclave still stands out for its uniqueness. The uniqueness that this SUV boasts about is its ability to perfectly combine style, luxury and comfort for the entire family.

Some of the 2013 Buick Enclave’s beneficial features include a commanding V6 engine, top rated scores on crash tests, great cargo room, and of course, a quiet and comfortable ride. The cabin of the SUV is well-engineered wherein the enthusiasts of the vehicle have the option for an eight or seven passenger seating. Whether one chooses the seven or the passenger seat, the SUV will be equipped on the second row with a pair of captain chairs, and will be equipped with a bench capable of seating three to four people on the third row. Whichever style you choose, these seats will be enclosed in a beautiful and elegant sheet metal.

But even if the 2013 Buick Enclave offers a lot when it comes to functionality, it still is behind when it comes to cargo space and entry for passengers compared to a minivan. This is because the cargo space of the SUV is less and sliding doors are not available for rear passengers. But compared to a minivan, it has the sheet metal which makes a lot of difference when it comes to appearance.

When the 2013 Buick Enclave is compared to top competitors which include SUVs from Lexus and Acura, the Enclave proves to be a good option due to its sophisticated style, luxurious features and high performance. The old school image of the 2013 Buick Enclave might be something that makes car enthusiasts think twice, but the overall performance, style and economy of the SUV makes it a great pick for the entire family.
