Enclave in the Market

Though today's minivans have enough options to spiral beyond $40,000, the market never really saw the need for a dedicated luxury model. Instead we have a collection of luxury crossovers and SUVs, many of which give up a big chunk of utility in the name of styling, performance or plain old opulence. The Enclave provides a compelling response to that: For a reasonable price, it combines near-minivan utility with entry-luxury quality. That's a rare combination.

Do car shoppers want something like this? I'd say so. Enclave sales are up more than 30 percent in 2010, making it one of GM's rising stars. Some areas — namely styling and cabin design — will impress less as fresh competition arrives over the next few years, but I suspect the Enclave's inherent qualities will be harder to beat.
