The Detroit Auto Show is one of the biggest automotive shows on the planet. You get to see and experience everything from stock production cars to ridiculous, over the top vehicles. This year it was also the place for the debut of Buick’s Envision SUV.
The 2017 Buick Envision is a midsize SUV. It’s what you’d call a midsize crossover, putting it somewhere between the large SUVs and smaller, compact crossovers like the Encore. Buick has great hopes for the future of the Envision. Its smooth ride and high-end cabin leave it positioned quite well, when compared to the competition.

Let’s start with its looks. The 2017 Buick Envision cuts a dashing silhouette! The design is understated, elegant and refined. Everything Buick owners have come to expect and more. Owners of a Buick SUV want exactly that, understatement and discretion and the Envision delivers.
The sides have elegant wheel arches, really bringing out the car’s proportions. They seamlessly bring the front of the car and the rear together. The long body line starts from the front arch, and swoops down to the very bottom of the SUV, forming a nice arch on its own. As you go further back, it starts to dissipate and blend in to the rear wheel-well. The second, higher body line starts from the front door and runs to the back into the taillights through the mid-section.
The back of the 2017 Buick Envision is interesting too. The Buick emblem is chromed and it’s positioned just below the rear hatch wiper. It’s got a small overhang, but the rather square stance makes it look really unique. The LED brake lights are very well designed and look stunning, especially at night. Below them you’ll find a reflector on each corner with a single exhaust tip peeking out on each side.
