Article QuickTakes:

It may have a high-riding stance, but the 2024 Buick Envista channels sleek hatchbacks in its profile rather than blocky SUVs.

This new crossover also boasts a competitive price and big screens. Buick plans to introduce the new name to showrooms this summer.

2024 Buick Envista: Coupe-SUV styling outside, big screens inside

The Envista wears front-end styling reminiscent of the automaker's recently updated 2024 Encore GX. Move to the side, though, and the Envista stands on its own. After peaking just above the front seats, the roofline dives sharply toward the rear end, giving the Envista the kind of coupe-SUV styling seen on the BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe.

Size-wise, the Envista is an odd fit into the brand's lineup. It stretches nearly 183 inches long, making it a mere tenth of an inch longer than Buick's much costlier Envision and about a foot longer than the slightly pricier Encore GX.

The Envista's interior pairs an 11-inch touchscreen in the center console with an 8-inch digital display in the instrument cluster for what Buick says is 19 inches of total screenage. No matter how Buick measures it, that's a lot of pixels.

Those screens sit above a smattering of conventional climate controls and a light switch knob, though by no means is this cabin button-heavy. Audio inputs are largely handled via the touchscreen or the steering wheel.

Cargo space is scant, at least by small SUV standards. Buick quotes just shy of 21 cubic feet behind the second row and a maximum of 42 cubic feet of room with row two folded. Buick's own Encore offers up nearly 24 cubic feet behind the second row and tops out north of 50 cubes with those seatbacks flopped down.

Envista power and fuel economy

A small turbocharged 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine sits under the Envista's hood, where Buick estimates it will churn out 136 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque via a six-speed automatic transmission.

Don't look for the snow-conquering performance of all-wheel drive, though. The Envista comes only in a front-wheel-drive configuration. The upside to that is a 30-mpg estimate for combined city and highway driving, at least according to Buick parent General Motors.
