2019 Buick Encore, Envision Named on 20 Safest Small SUVs of 2019 List

2019 Buick Encore

The 2019 Buick Encore and 2019 Buick Envision might be considered small SUVs, but they go big when it comes to safety. These two Buick models were recently recognized by U.S. News & World Report’s the 20 Safest Small SUVs of 2019 list.

To determine the smalls SUVs that earned a place on this list, U.S. News & World Report editors went through crash test ratings, while also examining standard and available safety features. The list includes both premium and mainstream crossovers.

For the Encore, this recognition came in thanks to its National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) safety scores of four stars on the rollover tests and five stars in all other tests. It offers consumers a standard rearview camera, along with available driver-assistance features like Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Blind Spot Monitoring, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning, and front and rear parking sensors.

Like the Encore, the 2019 Envision was also recognized for its NHTSA safety rating. It received five stars in the side crash tests and four stars in the frontal crash and rollover tests. The Envision comes with a standard rearview camera, but also offers standard rear parking sensors and GM’s Teen Driver system, allowing you to monitor your teen driver’s driving habits. Other available features include a 360-degree camera, a head-up display, and many driver-assistance technologies.

GM SUVs Dominate In KBB Best Family Car Awards

Kelley Blue Book, commonly called KBB, helps consumers determine the value of their own cars and potential cars they may purchase. It also awards automakers and their models for leading the industry in different ways, such as providing the best cars for families. In this year’s KBB Best Family Car awards, Chevrolet SUVs beat out the competition for the title.

2018 Chevy Equinox

Winning Vehicles

The three winning SUVs are the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox, the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse, and the 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe.

Chevy Equinox

The 2018 Equinox won in the best two-row SUV category. KBB lauded the Equinox SUV for its 2018 redesign, which made the Equinox roomy and feature-laden; those features include the Chevrolet MyLink audio system and OnStar with 4G LTE Wi-Fi.

Chevy Traverse

The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse won in the best three-row SUV segment for the same reasons as the Equinox: It is roomy and packed with features. The new Traverse offers up to 98.2 cubic feet of cargo space, which is a segment best.

Chevy Tahoe

Finally, the 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe won in the best three-row full-size SUV category for its seating (up to nine) and towing capability. With the 5.3-liter V8, the Tahoe can haul up to 8,600 pounds.

All three SUVs are available now at Bill Roberts Chevrolet, for test drive and purchase. Experience them for yourself when you stop by our dealership.
