It appears that Buick has been facing some troubles recently and experts say that it happens because they don’t have a vehicle for a particular market. If the rumors are true, that is about to change with their new 2016 Buick Envision. Their new 2016 Envision represents a powerful luxury midsize SUV that will probably arrive with only one engine option as its big brother Encore. The article below will reveal more information about the vehicle, even though we must say that the details above are based on rumors and speculations since official details are yet to be released. The new Buick Envision 2016 is all-new model that is smaller than its oversized cousins from Buick.
2016 Buick Envision SUV design
The upcoming 2016 Buick Envision will be based on the concept released in 2011. This means that the vehicle will have a muscular hood and a muscular profile as well. When it comes to the front fascia, you can clearly see that it represents a softened variation of the concept featuring a great number of design cues of the current Buick language. When you see the win-style xenon headlights, the boomerang-styled daytime lights with LED technology, and the waterfall grille, you will realize that the vehicle is very similar to the company’s large crossover, the Enclave. However, thanks to the minor details like the fog lights housing and lower front apron, the new Buick Envision 2016 looks completely new. It is a great thing that the newcomer shares a lot of styling cues with the Enclave, because it is considered to be one of the most stylish vehicles on the market. The back of the car sports big LED taillights. The side profile of the vehicle looks completely unique, and you cannot notice a single styling cue of the Enclave or the Encore.
The cabin of the new 2016 Buick Envision is pure perfection. With great number of features and excellently designed seats, comfort is guaranteed. There are a heated steering wheel wrapped in top-notch leather and active noise cancellation technology that are available in this segment for the very first time. The center console area is also covered in leather, just like the split center armrest and door panels. The dashboard features an eight-inch color touchscreen with stylish Black Piano trim surrounds.
