2017 Buick Envision Brings Elegance, Inspiration to the Crossroads of Northwest Indiana

When you're looking through the showroom of Sauers Buick GMC, your eyes can't help to be drawn to the stunning 2017 Buick Envision. Buick's latest edition of the compact SUV has everything you're looking for - space, size, speed.

We took a closer look at the vehicle thanks to some guidance from Kim Sauers of Sauers Buick GMC, and it had us re-thinking what could be our next "LIFE-Mobile."

"Having a family, I know the importance of space inside a car, and this car does not disappoint," said Chris Mahlmann, Publisher of Ideas in Motion Media. "Plus, once you get behind the wheel and take full advantage of all the luxury amenities, it's crazy to think of even stepping back out of the car. The technology has come such a long way in the past few years."

 Kim knows that this vehicle is one of the dealership's best sellers, and with good reason.

"Stepping inside a car like the 2017 Buick Envision, you know you're in a different class of automobile," said Kim. "We see the our customers driving these off the lot all day long, and you can tell that, for a lot of people, a test drive seals the deal on their decision to buy or lease."


Your sense of luxury has been set in motion with Responsive performance, intelligent innovations and a thoughtfully crafted interior ensure that Envision is a joy to drive, and a joy to share.

It only takes an instant to form your first impression of the Envision. One press of the accelerator proves it has a spirited performance suited to the way you live. A glance at its elegant proportions confirms this Buick is crafted to an exceptional degree of refinement. Its bold grille and jewel-like LED-accented headlamps reflect the pure driving enjoyment you’ll experience in Envision. This is your kind of luxury.


The inspiration for the Envision interior didn’t come from other vehicles. It came from the kind of places you go to relax in style. Think boutique hotels, luxurious day spas, and other blissfully quiet retreats. Think understated, uncluttered design, where the quality of the finishes, the exceptional materials and the ambiance of the lighting give the space a special feeling.

What forges the connection between a car and its driver? It starts with how well a vehicle responds to driver input—the turn of a steering wheel, the press of a brake pedal, the voice command for your phone. Apple CarPlayTM1 integrates seamlessly with your iPhone,® and Android AutoTM1 works with your compatible smartphone.

As you settle into the heated driver’s seat, your hands wrap around the thick leather-wrapped rim of the available heated steering wheel, and your eyes scan the gauges laid out in front of you. Now engage the Start button and feel the powerful response of Envision’s available turbocharged engine. Ready for the best feeling of all? Move the shift lever to drive.

Your every move is met by an available intelligent All-Wheel Drive with Active TwinClutch System, helping ensure sure-footed traction.

 An efficient and spirited 2.5L engine with 197 hp is standard. Or choose the available 2.0L Turbo engine with 252 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque to turbocharge every drive.

The available intelligent All-Wheel Drive with Active Twin Clutch automatically adjusts torque to each wheel to optimize traction and respond before slip occurs.

Envision’s tight turning radius makes for nimble maneuvers and easy parking.

The available HiPer Strut front suspension provides Envision with responsive steering and cornering while it helps dampen road noise and vibration.

Safety features and driver convenience alerts that are available include Forward Collision Alert, Side Blind Zone Alert with Lane Change Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Front and Rear Park Assist and a Safety Alert Seat, while 10 air bags2 and a Rear Vision Camera are standard.
