Used Car: 2010 Buick Enclave Review
The seven-seat 2010 Buick Enclave is one of the most upscale SUVs in its class, with tons of standard features, sleek looks and an especially quiet and roomy cabin. While the Enclave isn’t a great SUV for off-roading or towing, its good fuel economy and high safety scores make the Enclave a great family crossover.
The 2010 Buick Enclave is ranked:
When it was new, reviewers praised the Enclave for its smooth ride and quiet interior. The Buick Enclave comes with a V6 engine and either front- or all-wheel drive. While SUVs like the 2010 Ford Explorer are better for off-roading or towing, the Enclave gets much better fuel economy at 17/24 mpg city/highway in front-wheel drive models.
On the inside, reviewers said the Enclave had a spacious and luxurious interior for its class. Its third-row seats are nearly adult-sized, and it offers great cargo capacity for the class. It shares many components with its corporate cousins, the 2010 Chevrolet Traverse and 2010 GMC Acadia. However, the base Enclave comes with more standard features than those two SUVs, including a six-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, a power liftgate, three-zone automatic climate control and a leather-wrapped, tilt and telescopic steering wheel with audio and cruise controls. Optional features when it was new include a Bose sound system, leather seats, a backup camera and rear parking sensors.
Other Cars to Consider
If you like the Buick Enclave, you should also consider the 2010 GMC Acadia. It doesn’t come with as many standard features, but because the two crossovers are closely related in most other ways, you’ll still get similar fuel economy, a spacious cabin, an adult-sized third row and great safety scores. Like the Enclave, the Acadia is no off-roader, but for a roomy, seven-seat family vehicle without minivan styling, the GMC Acadia is a good choice.
If you can give up a little passenger and cargo space, consider the 2010 Toyota Highlander. The Highlander’s base four-cylinder engine gets excellent fuel economy for a midsize crossover, and if you want more power, a V6 engine is also offered. The Highlander doesn’t come with some of the fancier features that the Enclave has, but for basic family transportation with outstanding reliability and safety ratings, this Toyota is hard to beat.
