“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 come in three distinct trims: Preferred, Sport Touring (ST), and Avenir.
Under the Hood
The Envista will offer a propulsion system that combines a 1.2L Turbo engine with a six-speed automatic transmission. This is expected to achieve 136 horsepower with 162 lb-ft of torque.
“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.
“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 mpg.
Plenty of Tech
The 2024 Envista will come standard with the Buick Driver Confidence package that 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 safety and driver assistance technologies such as Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
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.
