The 2017 Buick Envision SUV’s Excellent Safety Ratings
Benefiting from the finest minds in automotive engineering and the latest driver assistance technologies, the 2017 Buick Envision experienced no problems bringing home top-of-the-line safety ratings. Both the NHTSA and the IIHS provided favourable verdicts after exhaustive crash-testing was carried out. Needless to say, the Envision should be at the top of your compact SUV list if peace of mind is a priority.
Top Safety Ratings
The NHTSA and the IIHS are both responsible for putting each new model that enters the North American marketplace through a rigorous series of crash tests to determine which boast the kind of safety demanded by the everyday driver. The NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) subjects models to rollover, front crash, and side crash simulations. The 2017 Buick Envision AWD compact SUV has earned a five-star overall vehicle score – a high rating that every Buick model has netted for two consecutive model years or more.
The IIHS (Insurance Insititute for Highway Safety) are even more exact, demanding a top rating of ‘Good’ across each of the following categories:
Small overlap front
Moderate overlap front
Head restraints & seats
Duncan Aldred, Vice President of Global Buick Sales, Service, and Marketing, stated that earning “…top ratings from some of the industry’s most important safety organizations validates not only the excellence of the Envision, but further builds the Buick brand’s reputation as a leader in safety and quality.”
