2018 Buick Enclave Avenir is a quiet beauty

Buick takes a stab at a luxury sub-brand with gorgeous results.

I love two-seater, RWD convertibles and own a 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata for pavement fun and a lifted 2001 Miata for pre-running. I race air-cooled Volkswagens in desert races like the Mint 400 and the Baja 1000. I have won the Rebelle Rally, seven-day navigational challenge, twice and I am the only driver to compete in an EV, the Rivian R1T.

Buick's Enclave three-row SUV is the first model to get the Avenir luxury treatment.

The Enclave Avenir has lane-keeping assist and lane-departure warning as standard.

Also standard are a 360-degree surround view camera system and a rear camera mirror, which can act as a traditional mirror or a digital display. We've seen this technology in GM's Cadillac brand and while it takes some getting used to, the digital display provides a much wider viewing angle.
