Buick will add a new compact crossover to its U.S. lineup this summer in the form of the 2024 Envista.
The Envista debuted in China last summer, and Buick on Monday provided details for the U.S. market.
Measuring 182.6 inches in length, the Envista is about an inch shorter than Buick’s Envision compact crossover and is differentiated by a coupe-like profile. Storage space measures up to 42 cubic feet thanks to 40/60-split folding rear seats.
The Envista’s shape was dictated by the design language previewed by Buick’s Wildcat EV concept unveiled last year, with the overall design characterized by the forward-leaning nose, slit-like lights, and revised tri-shield Buick badge.

The interior features a simple design that is dominated by a curved panel integrating a pair of screens for the instrument cluster and infotainment hub. Together, the screens measure 19 inches, with the infotainment screen making up 11 inches of the total.
The vehicle will be offered exclusively with a 1.2-liter turbo-4, rated at 136 hp. The engine will be mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission and power the front wheels only.

There will be three grades to choose from—Preferred, Sport Touring, and Avenir—with prices starting from $23,495, including destination. Standard items will include the aforementioned dual screens for the dash, as well as a handful of electronic driver-assist features such as automatic emergency braking and lane keep assist with departure warning. Handy items like blind spot warning, rear cross traffic warning, and adaptive cruise control will be available.
The Avenir will come standard with a Watts link suspension at the rear for added comfort, while this will be an option on the Sport Touring. The Avenir will also come standard with 19-inch wheels, while the Sport Touring will get 18-inch wheels as standard.
