The Buick Envision compact crossover has been fully redesigned for the 2021 model year. The recent photos from SAIC, the partner of General Motors, reveal an impressive upscale interior.
Buick first showed the exterior a month ago. The 2021 model becomes more attractive.
Looking into the cabin, we’ll see a new dashboard with a 10.0-inch touchscreen tilted 18 degrees to port for greater driver convenience.
HVAC vents below visually separate the infotainment system from the center console.
Push buttons serve instead of a shift knob, more auxiliary controls move to the screen. The seats of contrast-stitched leather combine with laser-engraved piano lacquer trim.
A wide list of available equipment includes the premium Bose audio system, Apple CarPlay, a head-up display, negative-ion air purification, ventilation of seats. There are more than 20 storage spaces inside.
The only engine Buick mentions so far is a 2.0-liter turbo-four mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission and either front- or all-wheel drive. This mill produces 252 hp on the current model.
The base engine (a 2.5-liter 197-hp four-cylinder one) may carry over from the 2020 Envision to entry-level 2021 models.
The new crossover will go on sale in China this year as the Envision S.
Expect the prices will be around $38,000 for the Select trim, $41,000 (Preferred), $44,000 (Essence), $46,000 (Premium), and $50,000 for the range-topping Avenir.
