So let's say you're an automaker, and you've only got 2 crossovers in your lineup during a time when they're hotter than ever. Well to solve that dilemma you scour your global portfolio to find more. And that's exactly what Buick has done here with the in between-sized Envision. At the subcompact end there’s the Encore. And at the 3-row end there’s the Enclave. So when Buick realized they had a runaway hit in China with the Envision, they made the decision to import it to the States. This is not a particularly new strategy for Buick, who has pulled in the Encore from Korea and the Regal from Germany. Sometimes when cars are imported from foreign markets they don’t arrive fully Americanized, if you will; they may look and feel a little disjointed from the rest of the lineup. With the Envision, there’s some of that but it’s not all bad. While the body styling is unfortunately dowdy and uninspired, the cabin introduces a new layout that looks great and works extremely well.
