Why is the 2017 Envision so safe?
Buick engineers were tasked with building a lightweight, responsive – yet safe – crossover SUV. To accomplish this, the team used new materials and construction methods to build a robust superstructure which contains the passengers. This is outstanding protection should a crash occur. Where the 2017 Envision really impressed evaluators from the two safety agencies is with active safety systems which are aimed at preventing crashes in the first place.
A comprehensive system of cameras as well as radar and ultrasonic sensors help the 2017 Envision know its exact position on the road in relation to other vehicles or obstacles. The IIHS really gives these kinds of systems like Forward Collision Alert and Automatic Emergency Braking extra points when determining how safe a particular model is.
