Safety of GMC Vehicles in the U.S.
Good news for Buick fans and those concerned with the safety of GMC vehicles made overseas but sold in US Markets. The Buick Envision
has passed the rigorous testing standards imposed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. That’s good news for us here at Anthony Buick GMC
too, because we not only sell Buicks
, we drive them.
Safety Features to Match an Excellent Design
Forget for a minute that the Envision
is an incredible looking crossover sports utility vehicle, but the safety standards are on par with its design, power and reliability. As the first Buick to be built in China and sold in the United States, the Envision is somewhat of a test of how well these vehicles will perform. The question has also been settled about whether or not the Envision would meet the tough standards for safety we expect from the cars on our roads and highways. It does. Not only is this the first Chinese-made Buick but it is the first Chinese-made vehicle the IIHS has tested. We’d say Buick is off to a good start and it’s no surprise. Earning the organization’s Top Safety Pick+ rating was a no brainer when you consider the safety features included in the Envision, such as the forward collision warning system and the automatic emergency braking system for example. The Envision performed well in the small overlap crash test too which is a good sign for the overall safety of any vehicle.
Safety first, but now that we know how safe the Envision is let’s talk about style, comfort and overall performance. The Envision is certainly stylish by any standard and offers plenty of room for passengers, gear or groceries. The 197 horsepower, 2.5 liter engine, combined with a six speed automatic transmission and front wheel drive, give drivers plenty of power while enjoying the luxury of the interior. Trim levels include the Premium and Premium II which increases the horsepower to 252 via a 2.0 liter turbo engine and all-wheel drive. For tech features there’s the 8-inch touch screen infotainment system offering Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
