The 2024 Buick Envista will fill a lot of roles when it goes on sale this summer.
The small crossover will be the General Motors brand's final new gasoline-powered nameplate before it shifts to an all-electric lineup by 2030. The Envista will replace the Encore subcompact crossover, which debuted in 2012, as Buick's entry-level model.
It will be the first Buick to draw total design inspiration from the brand's Wildcat electric vehicle concept revealed last year. And all of the Envista's trims, including the top-end Avenir, will start in the United States at less than US$30,000 including shipping — a strategy to attract younger buyers at a time when affordability concerns have pushed some consumers out of the market.
Canadian pricing hasn’t been announced. But Canadian customers will be able to preview a new Envista on Buick.ca, with ability to build and order online later this summer.
"The all-new Envista is going to shake up that segment once again," Duncan Aldred, vice president of global Buick and GMC, said in a statement. "When you consider all the Envista has to offer, from its stunning design to abundant technology and safety features, it's going to be hard to find a better package in that area of the market."
