Comparison Review

Comfort
The Buick Envision offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Chevrolet Traverse, with comparable head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Traverse will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Buick Envision.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Traverse requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Buick Envision, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Envision will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Chevrolet Traverse. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Buick Envision and the Chevrolet Traverse have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Buick Envision is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Traverse, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Buick Envision, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Traverse.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Buick Envision has a lot less horsepower than the Chevrolet Traverse.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Buick Envision does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Chevrolet Traverse.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Buick Envision seats a lot fewer people than the Chevrolet Traverse. The Buick Envision has significantly less cargo capacity than the Chevrolet Traverse.

Warranty
