Here’s more..

Range-topping choice!


The range-topping Avenir trim of the 2024 Buick Envista received a great deal of accolades with this award, with the crossover coupe recognized for its high style and a not-so-high price point, specifically below $35,000.


The award for the Avenir, based on several factors, highlighted the vehicle’s interior for starters, with 10 Best Judge Christie Schweinsberg noting that “designers are unleashing their creativity in cabins with ever more unique trim.” They are also excelling in the area of interior technology, made clear with larger display screens and advanced user interfaces that are complete with amazing graphics. The Envista has a dash featuring a standard 11-inch diagonal touchscreen and eight-inch diagonal Driver Information Center.


The award also takes into consideration smartphone pairing and high-quality voice assistants that provide good information, something the Avenir surely delivers. Then there’s cargo space, with the Avenir highlighted by a roomy, comfortable cabin within, with unique features and nice materials, including heated leather seats. Ample room for passengers is a given, as is overall cargo functionality. Even the words “Avenir” are stitched into the headrests for a luxurious touch!


It also follows certain trends overall, with those models recognized featuring not only distinctive decorative trim and large display screens, but an overall improvement of the user experience as it relates to in-vehicle technology. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is featured, along with many of the typical gauges moved from a cluster to what is instead on the infotainment display, complete with customization.


This year also represents the first time that all Wards 10 Best Interiors and UX winners are light trucks, including nine utility vehicles and one pickup. An elevation of UX was also noted by judges, thanks to such things as phone pairing, largely wireless and easier than ever, and onboard voice assistants, boasting both accuracy and responsiveness.

What else we know!


This vehicle is powered by a single choice, specifically the turbocharged 1.2L I3 LIH gasoline engine, which puts out 137 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque. This engine pairs quite nicely with a six-speed automatic transmission. The Envista also rides on the GM VSS-F vehicle set, with production at the GM Bupyeong Plant in South Korea.


The Envista Avenir joins other top models in earning this distinction, including: Chevrolet Blazer EV, Hyundai Kona, Hyundai Santa Fe, Kia EV9 Lincoln Nautilus, Mercedes-Benz GLC 300, Ram 1500 Tungsten, Toyota Grand Highlander Sport and Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.


These nominated vehicles all were analyzed through evaluations that took place in winter and early spring of 2024, with judges actually experiencing the nominees during their daily commutes. Factors considered in making their determinations were vast and included such areas as design aesthetics, comfort, materials, fit and finish, connectivity and infotainment as well as displays and controls and advanced driver-assistance system content and value.


On the exterior, a Pebble Gray and black two-tone look is found, combined with Cinnabar Metallic exterior paint.


These chosen models all share the fact they are rooted in value! They will be honored during the Wards 10 Best Interior and UX award ceremony June 6 at AutoTech: Detroit, with the event held at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Michigan.


These vehicles will be proudly displayed throughout the exhibition hall for visitors to get up close and personal, even giving them the ability to jump in and experience the interior and technology first-hand!
