Safety, Reliability & Features

In front, side and rear-impact crash tests by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the Enclave scored the top rating, Good. IIHS has yet to perform its new roof-strength tests on the SUV. Standard safety features include front, side-impact and three-row curtain airbags. Antilock brakes and an electronic stability system are also standard; click here to view a full list.

In nearly three years on the market, the Enclave's reliability has been average — better than the Acadia but worse than the Traverse. The MDX and Lexus RX fare better; the XC90 and Audi Q7 fare worse.

At $35,515, the front-wheel-drive Enclave CX has family-friendly features like a power liftgate, dual-zone automatic climate control in front with manual rear controls, power front seats, and a CD stereo with an auxiliary MP3 jack and steering-wheel audio controls. The leather-upholstered CXL-1 runs $38,630, while the top-of-the-line CXL-2 runs $41,995. On any trim, all-wheel drive adds $2,000. Available features on higher trims include heated and cooled seats, a moonroof with a fixed second-row skylight, a navigation system, rear parking sensors and a backup camera.

Load the Enclave up, and an all-wheel-drive CXL-2 tops out at just over $50,000.
