Buick is one of the nation’s oldest automobile companies that has continuously been active. The brand started it's legendary journey after winning the first Indianapolis Motor Speedway race. Buick has always shown the path when it came to innovations and kept itself a step ahead of rivals in the market. The premium brand, for over a century, has never kept itself out of the reach of true car lovers by keeping itself fairly luxurious, yet affordable.
There have been some mistakes too, admittedly, when the company started launching uninspired, ordinary, and dull models. That said, Buick redeemed itself with Regal GS. Today we are going to share with you the ten best-rated Buick models. Crack that Jack Daniel's and let's roll.
10 2019 Buick Regal GS
The Regal GS comes with a strong 3.6 liter turbocharged V6 engine that delivers a whopping 310 horsepower and a torque of around 282-pound feet and is equipped with a standard nine-speed automatic transmission. The engine offers a beastly throttle and lets Buick redeem all its past mistakes with this superbly styled sedan equipped with a standard all-wheel-drive system.
This one drives pretty smooth and the handling is much more luxurious and efficient. The car is an all-round performer with the added benefits of super comfortable plush interiors. This Grand Sport has done all the right things to bring it into the realm of “cool.” With race-inspired sport seats, aggressive styling, GS emblems all around, and refined guttural exhaust, the Regal makes a good case for itself.
9 2019 Regal Sportback
The Sportback comes with an extremely powerful turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers 250 horsepower, a standard nine-speed automatic transmission shift, and a front-wheel-drive system. With all this, the car just sprints from zero to sixty in just 5.6 seconds.
It offers a diverse drive range, a decent suspension, and a reasonably smooth ride. The fuel economy is decent and competes closely with the BMW 430i Gran Coupe and its rivals. The infotainment system is user-friendly, the graphics easy to understand and the interiors are comfortable too. Although it has a powerful engine, it’s rather wasted on this cushy car that offers little fun when behind the wheel.
8 2019 LaCrosse Sedan
The 2019 LaCrosse Sedan has been applauded a lot by experts and fanatics alike. The model comes with a powerful V6 four-cylinder engine equipped with an electric motor that yields an impressive 194 horsepower. It comes with a standard six-speed automatic transmission. The car ranked second by most of the experts among large cars and offers one of the best mileage estimates in the market.
With statistics like that, the LaCrosse is undoubtedly a smooth cruiser delivering a poised ride. The handling is extremely slick and on top of that, the mileage this one gives is exceptional, which in fact, beats most of the cars in this range. The reliability is top-rated and the interiors are fairly airy. The LaCross loses a few points due to having comparatively smaller cargo space to some of its contemporaries.
7 2019 Envision
The Buick 2019 Envision is a five-seater luxury compact SUV. It comes with a turbocharged V6 2.0 and 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers decent horsepower ranging from 197 to 252 and a torque of 192-pound feet. The car comes equipped with a front-wheel drive and an optional all-wheel-drive system and a standard six-speed automatic transmission.
The optional 2-liter turbocharged engine and the nine-speed automatic transmission deliver better performance and torque than the 2.5 liters. The handling is decent, the suspension smooth, and the fuel economy above average. The infotainment system and the graphics are advanced with easily comprehensible controls and the car offers a great drive experience.
6 2019 Encore
The 2019 Encore is an upscale subcompact crossover SUV. It comes with a base standard 1.4 liters four-cylinder turbocharged engine and a more powerful optional version of the same engine, yielding 138 horsepower and 153 horsepower respectively, with a standard six-speed automatic transmission.
The car comes with the standard front-wheel drive or, in select models, an optional all-wheel drive. The handling is superb, the predicted reliability rating is very good and the ride is buttery smooth unless traveling with a crowd of people. The interiors are beautiful with a pretty intuitive infotainment system, navigation displays, and a long list of standard features.
5 2019 Buick Cascada
The Cascada comes with a standard 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers a handsome 200 horsepower. It is equipped with a standard front-wheel-drive system, six-speed automatic transmission and manages to hit zero to sixty miles per hour in 8.3 seconds, which is not excellent, but not bad either.
The Cascada is a comfortable cruiser designed with the purpose of driving into the sunset rather than an athletic drive experience. The handling and the suspension are decent and the ride is not stiff. The fuel economy is good and the car comes with a long list of standard features.
4 2018 Buick Regal
The 2018 Buick Regal is a total surprise package. It comes with a hatchback, unlike the traditional trunks on cars out there. It comes with a 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers a staggering 250 horsepower and a torque of 260 pound-feet, which further bumps up to 295 pound-feet with the optional all-wheel-drive system.
There is a nine-speed automatic transmission with a front-wheel drive and eight-speed automatic transmission with an all-wheel drive. The acceleration is more powerful than many V6 engines, the ride smooth, suspension cushiony, and the handling is decent. The interiors are pleasant with attractive trims and comfortable seats. On top of this, there are 31.5 cubic feet of cargo space.
3 2019 Buick Enclave
The Buick Enclave is a good midsize luxury car in the SUV category. It comes with a standard 3.6-liter turbocharged V6 engine that delivers a 310 horsepower and a torque of 266 pound-feet, a nine-speed automatic transmission, standard front-wheel drive, and an optional all-wheel drive system.
It is a good performer with a joyful ride, decent handling and an average predicted reliability rating. The cruiser is unbelievably quiet and comfortable with roomy and spacious cabins. The inside tech is user-friendly with loads of family-friendly features. There is more than sufficient in-car storage and huge trunk space, more than most of the midsize SUVs in the industry.
2 Regal TourX
Admit it, you love this one even if it is a wagon. If you don’t, then you probably don't know about the Regal TourX yet.
Buick claims the TourX is a crossover, but it looks more like a wagon and sprints like a sedan. It comes with a standard 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers a potent 250 horsepower and a torque of 295-pound feet, a standard eight-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive.
The TourX is a great performer with a cushiony ride, crisp handling, soft suspension, and a decent predicted reliability rating. The interiors are handsome and offer comfortable space in the cabin. The trunk space is more than sufficient to carry anything someone may need for a weekend trip or a summer vacation.
1 2018 Buick Enclave Avenir
The Avenir comes with a standard 3.6-liter turbocharged V6 engine that yields 310-horsepower and 266-pound feet of torque, a nine-speed automatic transmission, and a standard front-wheel drive system. An optional all-wheel drive system can be acquired with just $2,000 extra for a single clutch and $2,300 for dual-clutch.
The Avenir performs surprisingly well on all sorts of road surfaces and offers a pleasantly smooth ride. The handling is decent, the suspension is great and the predicted reliability is comparatively good. The cabin is quiet and comfortable with a slightly difficult headroom, which is tolerable and not too cramped. There are lots of safety driver aids and standards in-car tech features.
