2010 Buick Enclave Review

A lot of car shoppers link minivans with a terminal case of parental frumpiness, but when it comes to outright utility those vehicles have long beaten more socially acceptable crossovers, hands down. General Motors' three-row crossovers — the Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave — narrow that divide.

The Enclave combines outstanding utility with premium touches not usually found in such a roomy vehicle.

Introduced for 2008, the three-row Enclave (most expensive of the three GMs) seats up to eight. All-wheel drive is optional, and trim levels include the CX, CXL-1 and CXL-2. We tested a front-wheel-drive, seven-seat Enclave CXL-2. Click here to compare the 2010 Enclave with the 2009, or here to compare it with its Chevrolet and GMC cohorts.
