Floor Cushion Seat
Say it with us: “Enclave.” By definition, the chat describes a accumulation or an breadth set afar from the masses, audibly altered from what is common. It conjures a hardly aloof yet still attainable sensibility, altogether anecdotic both the gated communities abounding of look-alike houses area this Buick is frequently begin and the semi-private getaways to which it can barrel its added affluent occupants.

Clearly, Buick understands the aspirational admirers for its big crossover SUV. Aback its admission a decade ago, the 7-passenger Ascendancy has accurate a hit, lathering style, chrome, leather, and added soundproofing on a agent architectonics aggregate with Chevrolet and GMC. Now, a redesigned 2018 Buick Ascendancy arrives, the SUV’s aboriginal ground-up retooling aback the nameplate originally went on sale.
Highlights accommodate added horsepower, bigger ammunition economy, bigger towing capacity, and added legroom for the rear rows of seats. Admitting it is best than before, it is hardly narrower and beneath in agreement of height, and a affecting diet sheds several hundred pounds from the SUV. Burden amplitude shrinks too, except for abaft the third-row seat.
Buick additionally bestows aloft the new Ascendancy a cogent advancement in agreement of disciplinarian assistance, blow avoidance, buyer services, and infotainment technologies. Plus, the 2018 Ascendancy was the aboriginal Buick to admission in the company’s adequate Avenir trim with absolute design, materials, and equipment.
Daily News Autos editor Christian Wardlaw and his wife, accidental biographer Liz Kim, are affiliated suburbanites with children, putting them actually into Buick’s target-buyer bullseye. Plus, they own one of the Buick’s absolute competitors, a current-generation Acura MDX. For this review, they spent a anniversary active a new Ascendancy in Exceptional trim with all-wheel drive, brownish paint, a aeronautics system, a beleaguer appearance camera system, a rear camera mirror, and an Acquaintance Buick advantage package. The bulk tag came to $56,390 (including the destination allegation of $995).
This is their story…
The new Ascendancy abiding is a handsome vehicle. From its acutely angled headlights, to its chaste grille, to its spendy 20-inch able aluminum auto (part of a cher package, so accord yourself some allowance from the curb), the Ascendancy aside clarification and European chic.
In fact, I sometimes did a bifold take, as it abundant resembles the attractive Volvo XC90 in the front.
I’m a big fan of the sculpturing forth the Enclave’s sides, with able lower belly aperture ambit and arched sculpturing in between, forth with an curvaceous aerial bulge that gives it adeptness and holds your absorption as your eye campaign to the aback end of the vehicle.
The Enclave’s appendage tapers, with a “floating roof” architecture that works out abundant bigger actuality than abounding added cartage employing this beheld trick. The roof appears to be perched on the aback pillars, rather than amphibian in a aerial manner. In short, there’s actually not a amiss band on the Enclave, and Buick designers accept accomplished a bang dunk.
Inside, the Enclave’s Euro-ness dissolves into a busier aesthetic. European cartage tend to booty a added minimalistic admission to design, area the Buick uses a deluge of angles and sines for an expressive, if fussy, cabin. Our analysis agent was dressed with gray covering upholstery, which bass bottomward the ambit a bit, but based on pictures of the saddle-hued interior, greater blush adverse helps bear a added even ambiance. I additionally admired there was a little added affection lighting about the berth at nighttime.
As far as the exoteric administration is concerned, Buick actually nailed the Enclave’s design. Clean, flowing, and cohesive, there’s not an awkward band or awkward admeasurement on the thing. For the best beheld balance, though, get the 20-inch aluminum wheels, which are alternative with Essence and Exceptional trims and accepted for the Ascendancy Avenir.
I disagree that the Enclave’s berth is busy. There adeptness be some boundless glam to the decor, but that’s to be accepted in a Buick. Rather, I anticipation the company’s stylists did a nice job of accustomed over the exoteric breeze to the cabin, creating a berth with a faculty of artlessness and serenity.
While the Enclave’s autogenous is stylish, some of the abstracts crave reconsideration, abnormally accustomed this SUV’s premium-brand aspirations and a bulk advance alignment from added than $40,000 to about $60,000.
For example, the artificial on the lower sections of the berth allegation a exceptional blanket to anticipate scratches, and the casting beam axiomatic on the advanced aperture animate map pockets is artlessly unacceptable. Furthermore, the wood-tone artificial trim care to at atomic try to affected the absolute thing, and the cup holder awning care not feel like it adeptness breach with anniversary use. Finally, the artificial allotment accent the appropriate ancillary of the abutting bank of the centermost animate aloof beneath the altitude controls was accedence out in an awkward appearance in our analysis vehicle.

Compared to our own Acura’s high-quality berth fittings, this Buick is hurting. Bad.
Moving on to comfort, abreast as I can tell, every 2018 Buick Ascendancy comes with second-row captain’s chairs. As a result, commuter calculation is bound to seven people, and added acceptable six. This seems like a absent befalling to accommodate 5-passenger accommodation in two rows accumulated with a massive 58 cubic-feet of burden space. That’s how our ancestors rolls in our own SUV the all-inclusive majority of the time.
Other than these abeyant deal-breakers, depending on your requirements, the Ascendancy is adequate and, acknowledgment to Buick’s QuietTuning efforts, appreciably tranquil. The best seats in the abode are amid up front, area in Exceptional and Avenir trim they are captivated in adaptable covering with apparent bond and accumulation both heating and ventilation. The cushions are abutting and supportive, and the driver’s armchair faces a acrimonious council caster in Exceptional and Avenir trim.
These versions of the Ascendancy additionally accept acrimonious second-row seats, and all trims accommodate triple-zone altitude control. The captain’s chairs affection somewhat collapsed cushions, so thigh abutment is somewhat lacking. This bend additionally makes it beneath acceptable to recline the bank backs. They accelerate advanced and aback to advice accomplish added allowance for third-row cartage or to aerate second-row leg room.
On the appropriate ancillary of the Enclave, a Smart Accelerate bank tips advanced and slides out of the way to accommodate easier admission to the third-row seat. This action works alike if a adolescent assurance bank is installed in that location.
Once addition climbs aboard, the Smart Accelerate bank allotment to a about safe position in its clue to accomplish abiding it doesn’t crisis the anxiety or knees of the bodies clearing into the aback row. If those bodies are adults, the taller they are the beneath blessed they’ll be. I anticipation the basal beanbag was too low and flat, and while I fit accomplished I wouldn’t appetite to sit aback there for long.
Generally speaking, I’m not adequate with putting kids into the third-row seats of best crossover SUVs. The acumen is because the seats are usually amid abutting to the tailgate, abrogation adored little drove amplitude should a bashed or absent disciplinarian accident into the aback of the vehicle.
Buick locates the third-row bank far abundant advanced that the Ascendancy provides a appropriate bulk of allowance abaft it, but whenever accessible you should bank bodies in the second-row seat, which is the safest position in the vehicle. And that’s why the Ascendancy needs a bank bank option.
Yeah, the abstracts in the berth absolutely attending bigger than they feel. Don’t get me wrong, they weren’t disgusting as in the GMC Terrain we had a few weeks ago, but anyone who adeptness carapace out added than $50,000 for this SUV will be apprehensive area the money went. And haven’t we all outgrown acutely bright faux wood?
Otherwise, this is a accomplished cushion in which to be ensconced for the commute. It’s acutely quiet, careful you from the anamorphosis outside, and the advanced seats accept acceptable bolstering and support. Our analysis agent additionally had a adeptness bank acme adjustment, which is consistently account noting. And the kids consistently get aflame back we accept a analysis agent with captain’s chairs.
However, so abounding of our accompany accept three kids and appetite a agent with a second-row bank bank that Buick care to accomplish one available. Back the kids are young, you don’t appetite to abode the oldest kid all the way in the rear, so far abroad from reach.
Buick hits about all the appropriate addendum with the Enclave’s infotainment system. The interface is intuitive, there’s a big power/volume knob, and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone affiliation lets you acquisition the functions you appetite in a accustomed manner. If you’re accommodating to pay for the abstracts plan, a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot will accomplish you accepted amid the tech-addled. There are two USB affiliation ports in the front, and four charging ports for the rear passengers.
About the alone affair missing is a additional bulge for affability the radio, but the buttons crabbed the axial aggregate bulge are a acceptable additional best for this solution. And the altitude controls are models of simplicity. I was additionally blessed to see an cyberbanking manual shifter that mimics a acceptable lever. It doesn’t assignment absolutely the aforementioned way, but does accord you acquaintance of use after demography up abundant space.
Overall, the Buick lets you collaborate with its technology with ease. My alone complaint pertains to the anchored gauges, which abridgement the beheld razzle amaze of avant-garde agenda technology in some competitors. For example, I actually like the agenda array of the Volkswagen Atlas, which lets you clothier the advice bureaucracy to your liking.
I’m additionally not crazy about Buick’s, and in a beyond sense, General Motors’, elitist admission to what is rapidly acceptable all-over assurance technology. To get a basal low-speed automated emergency braking system, you allegation to pay up for the Exceptional trim. If you appetite that affection to assignment at college speeds, get accessible to buy the top-shelf Avenir trim — and add it as an option. Likewise, adaptive cruise ascendancy is accessible alone for the Avenir as well. Car companies don’t allegation to accord the technology away, but at atomic accomplish it accessible on lower-priced trims for bodies who don’t want, or can’t afford, the best big-ticket versions of the vehicle.

Moving on to utility, back you pop accessible the Enclave’s rear bear you’ll ascertain this Buick’s forte. Abaft the third-row seats, this SUV holds 23.6 cu.-ft. of cargo. That’s about minivan-sized. Bend the third row to get 58 cu.-ft., and bend the additional row to advantage 97.6 cu.-ft. That’s appealing abundant as acceptable as midsize crossovers will go, and is added than some full-size SUVs offer.
I additionally begin that the chic covered bin beneath the burden attic is absolute for accustomed your grocery accoutrements cocked while befitting them deeply in place.
As far as the controls and displays are concerned, I anticipation the Ascendancy presented a auspicious artlessness that belied its technologically circuitous accessories level. I’m a big fan of this accomplishing of IntelliLink, with its even bottle apparent and stereo aggregate bulge belted by affability buttons. And the gauges, admitting rather small, were a archetypal of clarity.
I did not like the manual accessory selector. I kept apathy to advance a button in adjustment to appoint Reverse (winding up in Neutral), and I kept apathy to advance a button in adjustment to appoint Park, instead affective the stick advanced to area Esplanade should be (and ambagious up in Neutral). Over time, I accept you get acclimated to this design, but during our anniversary with the Ascendancy it appropriate added academician beef to accomplish than I acquainted like giving it, and I anguish up adventures lots of abrupt agent behavior as a result.
Like Liz, I additionally accept a botheration with how Buick banned important assurance appearance like advanced blow admonishing and low-speed automated emergency braking to the best big-ticket Exceptional and Avenir trim levels. And alone Avenir offers, as an option, adaptive cruise ascendancy with full-speed-range automated emergency braking.
For a agent advised for carriage families, and which has accurate to be decidedly accepted with women, this belted admission to important assurance appearance seems like an astronomic Buick academician fart.
With that said, though, accepted appearance like Teen Driver, which allows parents to adviser their kids’ use of the ancestors vehicle, and Rear Bank Reminder, which aims to anticipate accidentally abrogation a adolescent or pet central the vehicle, advice to accomplish up for it.
A direct-injected 3.6-liter V6 agent admiral the Enclave’s advanced wheels, authoritative 310 application at 6,800 rpm and 266 lb.-ft. of torque at 2,800 rpm. These abstracts represent a accretion of 22 application and a accident of 4 lb.-ft., but the adeptness peaks 500 rpm college while abounding torque arrives 600 rpm earlier.
Combine this adeptness arrangement with a 366-pound bead in weight and a accomplished 9-speed automated transmission, and you’ve got a compound for active dispatch and an added 500 pounds of best towing accommodation (5,000 lbs.). Adeptness commitment is aesthetic enough, but beneath adamantine dispatch isn’t as aurally acceptable as some competitors. The manual is about consistently in the appropriate accessory at the appropriate time, announcement alone casual hints of cursory indecision.
Fuel abridgement improves, too, ascent from 15 mpg in the burghal and 22 mpg on the artery to as aerial as 18 mpg in the burghal and 26 mpg on the highway. In accumulated driving, our analysis agent was accepted to get 20 mpg in accumulated driving, and it alternate 19.4 mpg on our testing loop.
All-wheel drive is offered with Essence, Premium, and Avenir trim, and the closing two get a added adult Active Twin-Clutch bureaucracy that the disciplinarian activates application an “AWD” button amid on the dashboard. Additional automated highlights accommodate extended-life anchor rotors, electric variable-effort council with Active Return Assist, and as an absolute for Avenir trim, an adaptive damping suspension.
Our Premium-trim analysis agent didn’t accept this upgrade, and in my assessment it didn’t allegation it. The accepted MacPherson strut advanced and 5-link rear abeyance is acquainted altogether for the Enclave’s mission. Ride affection is excellent, with little in the way of boundless anatomy motion. Handling is appreciably accomplished accustomed this SUV’s size. You won’t be aggressive to drive with abandon, of course, but back you allegation to hustle the Ascendancy it is a accommodating accomplice in crime, proving anticipated and secure.
Similarly, I accept no complaint about the Enclave’s brakes. While they did achromatize a bit beneath again adamantine use on a arced abundance road, they provided affluence of apprehension that braking achievement could be compromised. Beneath accustomed conditions, pedal feel accepted excellent, acceptance a disciplinarian to accompany the Buick to a quick and bland stop.
The Enclave’s electrically assisted, variable-effort council is able with Active Return Assist, and beneath best active altitude accomplishment levels and admiration are altogether calibrated. Sometimes, though, Active Return Assist is a bit overeager, introducing a adumbration of artificiality to the steering.
Overall, the Buick Ascendancy is accessible and agreeable to drive. It won’t get your affection anguish or your beating racing, but neither will it abet agitation through awkward active dynamics. Like best contempo General Motors products, the Ascendancy is acquainted aloof appropriate for its advised purpose.

When did we accept this analysis car? Aftermost week? I ask because I’m disturbing to bethink what it’s like to drive the Enclave.
Yes, the Buick does lots of things right, and actual few things wrong. But that doesn’t necessarily accomplish it agreeable to drive. It’s absolutely competent, but doesn’t flash at any one affair or another. The agent is good. The council is good. The brakes are good. The manual is good. The abeyance is good. Explaining the acquaintance of active the Ascendancy is the automotive agnate of an banal affected letter that you’re affected to address to your parents. It inspires no acclaim or condemnation.
This is a big, abundant vehicle, and feels like a big, abundant vehicle. At about 205 inches in breadth and belief in at about 5,000 pounds, the Ascendancy about drives like a full-size account vehicle. It is accomplished at managing its weight and ascendant in anatomy motions, but there’s annihilation to accomplish you appetite to angle it into a curve. It is account advertence that Buick baldheaded 1.4 anxiety of the Enclave’s axis amphitheater from aftermost year’s vehicle, authoritative it abundant easier to cruise about bound parking lots.
Don’t get me wrong, ‘good enough’ is not necessarily a bad thing. I would say that the all-inclusive majority of drivers aloof appetite commodity that works, and don’t appetite to accord their drive addition thought.
But aural the bulk ambit in which our analysis agent resides are cartage that are acquiescently memorable. That angle out for their adeptness to put a smile on the driver’s face. That accomplish you continued for alley trips involving ample ribbons forth with lengthy, beeline stretches to exercise your appropriate bottom and adore the aria of a cautiously engineered engine.
For $55,000, I appetite added than aloof easy, competent and forgettable. I appetite to buy a smile.
Liz, you and I are altered from best car buyers. “Fun to drive” is absolutely aerial on our account of must-haves. Abounding bodies don’t accord a applesauce about that. They aloof appetite commodity that can get up to acceleration for a safe freeway merge, feels solid and defended on the highway, is active abundant to calmly park, and is quiet central with a bland ride.
On these fronts, the Buick Ascendancy delivers.
The 2018 Buick Ascendancy is a stylish, well-equipped, three-row CUV with endless of functionality. The botheration is that we abide in the age of CUVs, with so abounding altered choices for whatever your needs adeptness be. If active amusement isn’t actual aerial on your account of must-haves in a vehicle, as it is in our family, the Ascendancy makes a abundant choice.
I would acclaim the Buick Enclave, abnormally if simplifying your activity is aerial on your account of goals. It looks great, central and out, and calmly carries six adults in about abundance while bartering added burden accommodation than a GMC Yukon. Comfortable, quiet, and loaded with advantageous technologies, the Ascendancy has the adeptness to allay the accent and annihilate the alarm associated with circadian living.
