Vehicle Profile: 2022 Buick Envision Avenir

2022 Buick Envision Avenir
The 2022 Buick Envision Avenir builds on the regular Envision by offering exclusive design elements and advanced tech upgrades — adding a luxurious new dimension to an already premium compact SUV.
 
Exterior styling
 
The 2022 Envision Avenir distinguishes itself in the Envision lineup with sophisticated exterior styling touches. The signature Avenir grille shows off special cross-hatched patterning, and the 20-inch aluminum wheels are finished in gleaming Avenir Pearl Nickel. Six paint colors are available, including a unique Rich Garnet Metallic shade that’s offered only for the Envision Avenir. Like other Envision models, the Avenir comes equipped with features like LED headlights and taillights, silver roof rails, and a hands-free power programmable liftgate that projects an LED logo.
 
Interior design
 
The five-seat interior of the 2022 Envision Avenir is particularly lavish, presenting high-end surfaces, accents, and amenities. The power-adjustable front seats are heated, ventilated, and upholstered in trim-exclusive Whisper Beige or Ebony leather with diamond-perforated quilting. A heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel and auto-dimming rearview mirror boost comfort behind the wheel. The SUV can also be outfitted with an optional massaging driver’s seat and power lumbar controls for both front passengers. Other standard features throughout the cabin include textured wood-tone accents for the door panels, heated rear outboard seats, premium floor mats, rear USB charging ports, and wireless charging.
 
Infotainment technology
 
Advanced connectivity plays a key role inside the 2022 Envision Avenir. Along with a 10.2-inch display screen, the Buick Infotainment System provides features like GPS navigation, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay® smartphone integration, and built-in Amazon Alexa voice-activated assistance. The Envision Avenir also comes with Buick Connected Access capabilities like on-the-go Wi-Fi®, roadside assistance, and vehicle location services. Audio plays through a standard nine-speaker Bose® premium audio system with AudioPilot® noise compensation technology to optimize sound quality.
 
Safety systems
 
Like all Envision models, the Avenir is protected by a suite of Buick Driver Confidence technologies that work to prevent and mitigate crashes and focus driver attention. Along with these features, the Envision Avenir heightens visibility with an HD Surround Vision camera view, a Head-Up Display on the windshield, and the cutting-edge Rear Camera Mirror (complete with a washer to keep the rear-facing lens clean). Drivers can also opt for Enhanced Automatic Parking Assist, a system that does all the work of guiding the SUV in and out of parallel or perpendicular parking spots.
 
Performance and handling
 
Under the hood, the 2022 Envision Avenir carries a 2.0-liter ECOTEC turbo engine that achieves 228 horsepower, 258 lb-ft of torque, and up to 31 mpg on the highway.[1] This engine is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission that is electronically controlled via push-button controls mounted on the console. A five-link rear suspension with available Continuous Damping Control ensures a smooth ride, while QuietTuning with Active Noise Cancellation keeps unwanted sounds out of the cabin. To improve traction when roads are rough and weather conditions are bad, the Envision Avenir offers an available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system with an active twin clutch.
 
Advertised as “the highest expression of Buick luxury,” the 2022 Envision Avenir is well worth seeking out for compact SUV shoppers who place a high priority on premium features and design.
