It doesn’t matter how good a car looks from the outside if it isn’t a pleasure to be in on the inside. The 2021 Buick Envision strives to be the car you won’t want to climb out of by integrating exquisite styling, brand new technology, and the best luxuries engineering can fit inside.
For over 100 years, Buick has made a name for itself by producing beautiful, timeless designs, and they’re not stopping now. The sculpted lines of the exterior pair wonderfully with the smooth, elegant flow of the dashboard, the contours of which reach around the driver and front passenger onto the doors and around the door handles. A slightly angled center console makes features a little easier to see from the driver’s side, anchored by an 8” infotainment system in dead center. The interior colors––primarily either beige or ebony with ebony highlights––provide highly sophisticated options for all tastes, whether the seats are cloth (Base, Preferred) or leather (Essence, Avenir).
The centerpiece of the interior technology showcased in the Envision has to be the infotainment system. The screen is 8” standard, but a 10” version is available on all but the base trim (standard on the Essence and Avenir), allowing easy operation and visibility. 4G LTE Wifi capability, and compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, ensure seamless connectivity for all passengers through this system. A top-of-the-line Bose speaker system delivers the finest quality sound from 6 to as many as nine speakers (Avenir––standard, Essence––available).
The Avenir trim elevates the technology even further. A head-up display (HUD) is standard (available on Essence), which projects your speed and other important information onto a transparent panel above the steering wheel, keeping your eyes on the road. The center console has a wireless charging pad for compatible devices, so you won’t have to worry about forgetting your chargers anymore.
When it comes to luxury vehicles, comfort is king. The absence of basic amenities can make any excursion unbearable, while the right set of luxuries can help any driver sustain through the longest of road trips. The 2021 Envision would like you to consider that, once you’ve arrived at your destination, perhaps you’d like to stay in the car instead?
The greatest contribution to this is the seating. The front bucket seats are adjustable 6-ways. With the Preferred trim, the driver gets an 8-way power adjustable seat, and heated seats and a heated steering wheel are available. These features are standard on the Essence trim for both front seats. Finally, at the Avenir trim level, heating is added to the rear outboard passenger seats, ventilation is added to the front seats, and the driver seat also receives massage control.
While you sit in your massage chair driver seat, you’ll look up and see nature all around you as an enormous powered moonroof is available on both Essence and Avenir trim. Active noise cancellation and Buick’s unique QuietTuning process work together to reduce, block, and absorb exterior noises and vibrations, keeping the interior delightfully quiet even at highway speeds or stuck in traffic around construction sites.
Interior air quality monitoring and ionization systems ensure that you always have clean, fresh air inside, and dual-zone climate control allows you and your front passenger to set the temperature just right. Combined, these technologies and features provide complete sensory control of the interior environment. Sure, you could get out––but why?
