The 2013 Buick Enclave has been newly reinvigorated with a new look, some good ol’ Buick heritage, a bit of high-tech futzing, and a serious retuning of its ride and handling. Athletic it is not, but its handling is predictable and it offers the stability and driving ease its buyers desire.

Though its basic bones are beginning to show their age in a few places, namely in terms of performance and fuel economy, this heavy refresh has given us one more reason to like the Buick Enclave: Its stunning interior.

As mid-cycle refreshes go, the 2013 Enclave’s updates are relatively mild. The crossover retains all the same qualities we praised at its introduction, and with the updates, the Enclave feels like a modern car again.

If you’re looking for good looks and comfort, and put less of a priority on performance and economy, the Enclave might be the semi-luxury crossover for you.

The 2011 Enclave remains one of the most attractive full-size crossovers available today, and the ride is appropriately cushy. There’s still work to be done, though, before the Enclave can be considered world class.

The Enclave remains perhaps the best-looking large crossover on the road, but the more time I spent in it, the more I noticed a kind of slightly-behind-the-times content.
