The Small SUV, Reimagined: Buick Introduces First-Ever Envista, a Premium Crossover with an Approachable Price


• With a long wheelbase, low roof and sleek profile, the Envista is a premium crossover with the riding dynamics of a sedan

• The Envista will be the first vehicle to fully adopt Buick’s new design language, first exhibited on the Wildcat EV concept

• The all-new Envista will round out Buick’s North American portfolio with an approachable yet high-end offering


DETROIT — Today Buick revealed the 2024 Envista, a new nameplate designed to  rethink what a premium vehicle can be in a white space of the small SUV segment. The  Envista offers the cargo space and utility of an SUV, packaged inside sporty and sleek  proportions typically found in a sedan.


“Buick helped define the small SUV segment in 2012, and we’ve continued to make our  offerings even more competitive since. The all-new Envista is going to shake up that  segment once again,” said Duncan Aldred, global vice president, Buick-GMC. “When  you consider all the Envista has to offer, from its stunning design, standard technology  and premium affordability, it’s going to be hard to find a better package in that area of  the market.”


The Envista will be one of the most affordable SUVs in the segment, yet it will still come  standard with high-quality materials, design and technologies. Starting at $23,4951, it is  a premium crossover designed to attract migrating sedan owners, young professionals  and small families to the Buick portfolio.


The Envista will come in three distinct trims, each with their own unique personality:  Preferred, Sport Touring (ST) and Avenir. This offering expands the popular, luxurious  Avenir sub-brand across Buick’s entire portfolio.


Sculptural beauty and new design  

The Envista will be the first vehicle to fully incorporate Buick’s new, modern design  language, which was first shown to the world on the Wildcat EV concept last year. This  includes the new face of Buick, featuring a low-profile silhouette and forward leaning  nose. The new Buick emblem is now proudly mounted on the body, directly above a  sleek, intricate grille design. This design cue is taken from heritage vehicles of Buick’s past. 


The body side of the vehicle encompasses sculptural beauty with powerful fender forms  and a sculpted waistline that create the perception of fluid motion. Bright trim precisely  incorporated around the glass adds to the vehicle’s expressiveness by catching and  reflecting light at different angles.


The headlamps and taillamps evolve Buick’s signature wing lighting with a thinner and  more crisp form. LED checkmark lamps are mounted high on the fascia, while other  functional lighting is lower on the body, creating a refined, layered look. 


“The Envista represents a pure expression of Buick design,” said Sharon Gauci,  executive director, Global Buick-GMC Design. “This is not your average small SUV. With  its unique proportions, modern stance and sleek form, the Envista takes Buick’s  sculptural beauty to the next level.” 


In keeping with its sporty nature, all-black 18-inch wheels are standard on the ST trim,  with 19-inch wheels available. Bespoke Pearl Nickel 19-inch wheels are standard on the  Avenir, elevating its premium persona.


Elevated interior, immersive technology 

Inside the Envista, customers will be surprised by the spaciousness and sense of  lightness that flows throughout. Long windows flood the cabin with light, as material and  technology advancements allowed designers to maximize interior cabin space. Enabled  by the long wheelbase and efficient layout, the Envista offers the spaciousness and  legroom often seen in much larger vehicles. It offers more legroom than any prior Buick  small SUV. 


The Envista’s Ultrawide Infotainment Display encompass 19 diagonal inches of  combined LCD screens that work together in harmony. This system is designed to  inspire driver confidence with easy access to vehicle controls at their fingertips. Like the  2024 Encore GX, the Envista has an 11-inch-diagonal infotainment screen — the largest  in the segment2


The latest Buick infotainment system has been optimized to provide an enhanced user  interface design, voice recognition and multimedia applications, making driver interaction  easier and more intuitive. 


Attention to detail is found throughout the interior, whether that be through crafted colorful stitching on the seats, or Avenir and ST logos embroidered on the head  restraints of their respective trims. Even a flat-bottom steering wheel is standard across  all trims, providing customers with a sporty and premium option not seen in this  segment. All elements of the Envista’s interior design are carefully curated, down to  even the smallest of touchpoints. 


The cabin experience is enhanced with Buick’s signature QuietTuning system, which  helps prevent unwanted road noise from entering the cabin for a serene and more  relaxed driving experience.


Inspiring confidence, delivering comfort 

The 2024 Envista will come standard with the Buick Driver Confidence package3. This  package includes six active safety and driver assistance technologies such as Automatic  Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, IntelliBeam auto  high-beams and more. A high-definition Rear Vision Camera is also standard. 


The Envista will also offer available safety3 and driver assistance technologies such as  Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, Adaptive Cruise Control and Rear Cross  Traffic Alert.


A 40/60-split folding second row allows for storage of items up to 7.5 feet long  (diagonally). The Envista provides 20.7 cubic feet of room behind the rear seat and 42  cubic feet4  with the rear seats folded down. An available Power Liftgate allows  customers to access their cargo area with ease.


Spirited efficiency 

The Envista will offer a smart and efficient propulsion system that combines a high performance 1.2L Turbo engine with a six-speed automatic transmission. This is  expected to achieve 136 horsepower with 162 lb-ft of torque. 


The engine’s turbocharger allows it to reach peak torque much faster and maintain that  for a longer RPM band, providing great responsiveness and a fun and engaging driving  experience for customers. 


“Compared to previous generations of our 1.2L Turbo engine, this version is lighter and  uses fewer parts, which reduces the overall vehicle weight, increases efficiency and  creates nimble ride and handling,” said Scott McLane, lead development engineer, Buick  Envista. 


A Watts Link suspension system is standard on the Avenir trim and available on ST,  providing drivers with a level of sure-footedness and a more quiet and isolated ride  experience.


“An array of advanced chassis and suspension technologies contributes to the nimble  and precise handling of the model,” said McLane. 


The Envista is expected to offer a GM-estimated 30 mpg5 (combined).


Premium package with an approachable price 

The 2024 Envista is expected to enter production next month and be available for  customers this summer. The Envista Preferred trim starts at just $23,4951, with Sport  Touring starting at $25,1951 and Avenir starting at $29,6951


Customers can preview a new Envista on Buick.com now, with the ability to build and  order online starting later this summer. 


Buick vehicles offer sculptural designs, refined performance, modern interiors and  thoughtful personal technologies. Buick’s award-winning customer service and sales  experience, along with the Avenir trim, the highest expression of Buick luxury, are  attracting new buyers to experience Buick’s unique approach to attainable luxury.
