With the upcoming 2018 Buick Enclave Avenir Trim, the American manufacturer wants to offer the ultimate variant of its popular SUV, in terms of luxury and class. This vehicle is meant to clearly show the Buick’s dedication to showing its own sense of style and luxury.
As a result, the Avenir comes with its own unique styling, a large set of premium materials and advanced features. These will allow the Avenir to stand out among other Enclave models, as well plenty of other crossover SUVs on the market. This upgraded vehicle is planned for a late 2017 release date and it will challenge the BMW X5 and Audi Q5.
2018 Buick Enclave Avenir – Attractive and Sporty Look
Outside, the 2018 Buick Enclave Avenir does its best to look as attractive and sporty as possible. The model features a new, three-dimensional mesh grille, massive pearl nickel 20-inch wheels, and plenty of Avenir badging. In the back of the vehicle, we can see a standard, hands-free programmable liftgate, which features a Buick tri-shield logo. Overall, the Avenir has a much sportier and sleeker stance.
The new grille, along with the redesigned headlamps, largely contributes to this revamped look. We should also mention that there are reworked bumpers. These now have horizontally oriented fog lamps and events, which give the vehicle that road-hugging appearance.
Interior styling and additions
On the inside, it is obvious that Buick’s goal was to improve the refinement and quality, with a special focus placed on making the cabin as quiet as possible. The 2018 Buick Enclave Avenir Trim features one of the quietest cabins in the segment, thanks to its sound deadening materials and sealed gaps. T
here are also plenty of high-quality materials, which include real leather, some wood trims, and even some chrome. We should also mention lots of contrast piping and stitch on the seats, a wood-accented steering wheel, embroidered headrests, as well as custom floor mats. When it comes to the available passenger and cargo space, there have been no changes made.
The Enclave Avenir is still spacious, offering plenty of headroom and legroom, and cargo space. However, thanks to a longer wheelbase, there will be some 10% increase, when it comes to the overall space. In the tech department, there is an 8-inch touchscreen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and a bevy of safety systems.
