The new 2013 Buick Enclave advances the award-winning design and technology that presents the beautiful waterfall grill and Buick details. The industry’s best-selling three-row luxury crossover features fresh styling, new safety technologies, in-vehicle connectivity and a more refined driving experience.

An updated, sculpted exterior design builds on the sophisticated elegance of the original Enclave. Luxurious amenities and high-quality materials define the cabin. The Enclave is designed to comfortably accommodate three rows of adults.

The interior is more contemporary, with ambient lighting and Buick’s IntelliLink in-vehicle infotainment system with touch-screen control and available navigation.

The industry’s first front center side air bag system, available Side Blind Zone and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and new dual-flow front struts highlight safety and performance enhancements. Enclave is offered in both front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive configurations.

Buick’s IntelliLink color touch radio is standard on all models and enhances the driving experience with a higher level of wireless connectivity and customized options — all while building on the safety and security of OnStar.

The ride was comfortable, smooth and quiet, with good visibility. There was plenty of storage and enough cup holders to make any family happy.

The 2013 Buick Enclave is a wonderful, full-size family crossover for families who want a luxurious cabin, yet want an affordable three-row model from a traditional luxury brand.
