New SUV features blend of luxury, refinement and advanced technologies
The Envision combines Buick's signature 360 degree integrated design with several new interior styling elements, including a driver-friendly left-tilted center console. Black piano trim surrounds the Envision’s eight-inch color touchscreen, giving the instrument panel a streamlined, modern feel. Chrome trim clearly delineates various functional areas.
Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) is also a segment-first feature in the Envision. It works with the Bose Sound System to cancel out incoming noise and deliver a home-theater-like listening experience. Ice-blue ambient lighting adds to the serene environment.
Shanghai GM has published photos of the all-new Buick Envision premium midsize SUV, which will make its premiere in Chengdu on August 28.

The area beneath the center console is wrapped in burgundy leather accentuated by French-style dual stitching. It includes thoughtfully arranged shift knobs and heating and air conditioning controls. The split center armrest has ample space for personal belongings with a USB port. The refinement extends to the materials used on the door panels and rear passenger space.

The Envision comes with a comfortable leather-wrapped three-spoke sport steering wheel with a segment-first heating element to keep drivers’ hands warm on chilly days. Buttons and knobs on both sides of the steering wheel allow the driver to activate cruise control, play music and make Bluetooth phone calls while keeping their hands on the wheel. The light yet rigid seats have an ergonomic design that provides premium support and comfort.

The FlexRide system in the Envision offers a choice of four driving modes: Normal, Tour, Sport and Off-Road. The Off-Road mode, available for the first time in a Buick model, is ideal for driving on slippery, unstable or bumpy surfaces. The Envision also comes equipped with parking assist, engine start/stop and lane departure warning.
