Vehicle Safety is Very Important to New Britain Connecticut Buick SUV Shoppers
No other car class saw a bigger spike in sales in the past decade than the crossover segment. With most of the space provided by the full-fledged SUVs, yet able to pull more miles per gallon and easier to maneuver around town, these sedans on steroids captured more and more American hearts.
Today, the crossover class is home to an almost bitter competition between manufacturers as they try to win more clients by creating increasingly better deals. That's great news for the crossover SUV prospective buyer! The models either become cheaper yet offer the same features or keep the price fixed but are loaded with perks or better powertrains.
American manufacturers tend to have some of the best crossover models on the market, and one of the best lineups can be found under the Buick brand. Between the Envision, the Enclave, and the Encore, their three distinctive crossovers, there’s a perfect car to meet the needs of any New Britain Connecticut SUV shopper.
Because they want to address a sub-segment of the market with every car directly, each of the three has distinctive features. The Enclave, for example, excels as interior space, offering one of the most spacious third rows in the industry. The Envision delights with a great 2.0-liter turbo-4 that produces 252 horsepower, that coupled with its relatively light body, offers a composed yet potent ride. Finally, the Encore impresses through its nimbleness and perfect city size.
Each with their own character, as siblings often have, its still evident they come from the same family as certain traits are common among the three. We’re talking about the obvious emphasis on appealing exterior lines, the great, clean interior, and the impeccable infotainment system you’ll find on every model in all their renditions.
Most of all though, what unites the three crossovers are their exceptional available safety features. Depending on trim level or selected options, some vehicles might include more than others, but by looking at the whole lot, it's clear that Buick has put plenty of effort into building some of the safest crossovers out there.
Their safety recipe?
The three Ps: perceive, prevent, protect.
The first one, "perceive," is meant to increase your spatial awareness by placing multiple cameras in your car. Again, the number and location depend on the trim level, the model, and your personal preferences, but the main idea is to give the driver the ability to have a "bird's eye view" of their surroundings, so nothing can come to sneak upon them.
The second, prevent, is where modern technology comes in by taking the form of a long list of available features, all under the same “Active Safety Technologies” umbrella. These, depending on the settings and model, have the ability to alert you of an impending threat, and then, with the most advanced versions, also act on your behalf to avoid the danger or minimize its impact.
Protect is the old form of road safety, taken to new heights. Buick puts it best. “In the event of a crash, strong structural dynamics, intelligent airbag systems, and other advanced safety systems work in concert to help protect you and your passengers.”
Between these three core strategies, you'll have ample choices to keep everyone dear to you safe.
