2018 Buick Enclave vs. 2018 Nissan Armada Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Buick Enclave offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Nissan Armada, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Buick Enclave and the Nissan Armada.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Buick Enclave as you will with the Nissan Armada, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Buick Enclave will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Nissan Armada. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Buick Enclave carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Nissan Armada.

Dimensions
The Buick Enclave is a little narrower than the Nissan Armada, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Buick Enclave is slightly shorter than the Nissan Armada, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Buick Enclave has much lower torque than the Nissan Armada, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Buick Enclave has a smaller turning radius than the Nissan Armada, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Nissan Armada is clearly the choice over the Buick Enclave for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Buick Enclave has a lot less horsepower than the Nissan Armada.

Utility
The Buick Enclave has less seating than the Nissan Armada, making the Nissan Armada the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Buick Enclave as you will in the Nissan Armada.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Buick Enclave than that of the Nissan Armada.
