Your choice of car doesn’t need to be so fancy. You can do something safe and good for the whole family. The Buick Envision and BMW X3 can both help you find what you’re looking for. Which one would fit your needs the best? Look at both sides of the situation.
About The Buick Envision
The Buick Envision looks like a safe car that every family would choose. With the rear park assist and the rear vision camera, they will feel much better. With surround vision, you’ll be able to see more of what’s going on around you.
Lane keep assist will keep you in your lane at all times, so even if your mind starts to wander, you won’t go into another lane.
With smartphone connectivity, it’s no longer possible to text and drive.
When it comes to phones, you don’t have to use cords or wires to charge your phone. The Buick Envision has room for five people. The back can hold up to 57.3 cu. ft. of things.
You’ll never have to use your hands again to open the liftgate to get your things out. On top of that, the new panoramic moonroof in the Buick Envision gives your passengers a great view of the sky.
With its sculpted lines and smooth curves, this car is also very pretty. Both the outside and the inside are sweet. The winter is a good time to use the heated steering wheel on the Buick Envision. The front cars that are cooled are great for the summer.
The temperature can be changed by the people in the back seat. No one will have to deal with being too hot or too cold anymore. From the inside, the ride will be nice and quiet.
Buick QuieTuning is a small feature on this car. Noises will be blocked out by triple door seals and acoustic laminated glass in the windshield and front windows, making your drive much quieter. A car air ioniser will help keep the car clean and fresh. You can build the car you want and set a price for it on the site.
About The BMW X3
People think of German luxury when they think of BMW. But that doesn’t always happen. The BMW X3 is both sporty and good for families. You can make your own version of this cool car on the site.
The back can hold up to 62.7 cu. ft. of things. The split-folding seats help make more room in the back for everything you want to bring. With eight inches of ground clearance, the car is much easier to drive through snow, sand, and other rough terrain on long road trips.
The BMW X3 gives everyone a lot of room to handle steep spots. Want to drive down the driveway with more comfort and control? The M40i’s Adaptive M Sport suspension will make things a lot easier.
On top of that, the BMW X3 is a better ride because it is easy to use. This car has the most up-to-date version of iDrive. It can be controlled by touch, voice, or an optional hand gesture.
Previous 2016 Model Comparisons
This week, we will show a new SUV battle between the new Chinese-made Buick Envision and the 2016 BMW X3, which is another big name in the Sport Utility Vehicle category.
Even though the Buick Envision is a brand-new model for the U.S. market, the X3 has a few surprises of its own.
Customers can get a BMW X3 with a diesel engine from the new generation. The 2.0 Liter Intercooled Turbo Diesel I-4 engine in the all-wheel-drive X3 4-Door xDrive28d gives the car 180 horsepower and 280 net torque. Still, the best thing about this diesel-powered BMW SUV trim is that it gets good gas mileage.
The xDrive28d gets an estimated 27 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway, which makes it a much more fuel-efficient trim than its other builds.
For example, the all-wheel-drive 2016 BMW X3 xDrive35i, which is the most popular model in the X3 series, has a 3.0 Liter Intercooled Turbo Premium Unleaded I-6 engine.
With the I-6 engine, the X3 can make 300 horsepower and 300 net torque. But you’ll have to pay for all that power at the next gas station. On average, the xDrive35i gets 19 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.
The estimated fuel economy for the other two trims of the BMW X3 is the same. Both the sDrive28i with rear-wheel drive and the xDrive28i with all-wheel drive use about 21 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.
The 2016 Buick Envision is the first of its kind, so it won’t be on the market until this summer. Until today, there was no news about how much gas it was expected to use.
Even though we don’t know how much gas it will use, we can tell you about the engine that will power the first car made in China to come to these shores.
The Envision will move with the help of a 2.0-liter Ecotec DOHC I-4 VVT DI Turbocharged engine. media.buick.com says that the engine will give the car about 252 horsepower and 260 torque.
Now, many of us still don’t know a lot about how well the car works, but there is a lot of information about the new technologies that Buick hopes will make its SUV stand out from the rest.
The Envision looks like it has a comfortable interior, so it could be a very relaxing and safe car.
For example, the Envision’s QuietTuning technology uses Active Noise Cancellation and a wide range of sound-absorbing technologies to make sure that the driver won’t be bothered by sounds like other cars and the wind.
The price of the Envision is also unknown, but the base model of the 2016 Buick Envision is expected to cost between $30,000 and $35,000.
The base rear-wheel-drive 2016 BMW X3 sDrive28i starts at $38,950, while the powerful all-wheel-drive X3 xDrive35i starts at $46,800.
