Buick Envision Attained “Top Safety Pick” Status from IIHS
The IIHS has just released a comprehensive list of the top safest vehicles to drive for 2018; the 2018 Buick Envision achieved the “Top Safety Pick” status for the mid-size luxury SUV category. This is no easy feat, considering that this organization just adopted stricter requirements for the evaluation.
Considering the Envision’s past track record for safety ratings, it’s not really surprising it made the IIHS’s list. It achieved a 5-Star Overall Safety rating for both 2017 and 2016. It also enjoyed “Top Safety Pick Plus” status those same two years.
Here are just some of the advanced defenses that you can expect when you set foot in the 2018 Buick Envision.
