* I was given the 2016 Buick Enclave to test drive for one week, free of charge. As always, I only share what I LOVE and all opinions are always my own. *

2016 Buick Enclave Mommy Review

The 2016 Buick Enclave was delivered to our doorstep on the Tuesday morning before Thanksgiving and from the moment I set eyes on it I was so impressed by its beauty.

2016 Buick Enclave Review - The perfect vehicle for the entire family

We drove the 2016 Buick Enclave up to the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania to enjoy Thanksgiving with family. You can read all about our memorable family road trip on my blog post here.  You can also view a few more pics from of our test drive in the slideshow below.

During our test drive, we found that the 2016 Buick Enclave really does provides all the options that a family like ours needs when hitting the road; lots of space, a quiet and comfortable drive, and lots of tech options to keep us connected while enjoying a luxurious ambiance.

The built-in 4G LTE™ Wi-Fi Powered by OnStar® was one of our favorite features in this car! It made it super easy to keep the kids entertained during the 2-hour drive. It also allowed me to catch up with my social media channels while working a bit on the blog.

He loved being able to watch his Minecraft videos on YouTube. I loved that I didn’t have to use my phone as a HotSpot.

Below are a few other features that were a big hit with our family.

2016 Buick Enclave - BOSE speaker systems make the ride FUN! We love jammin' during a road trip.
The BOSE speaker system throughout this car made our ride a bit sweeter! We’re a family that loves jammin’ while driving so we were all singing our little hearts out during our trip 🙂
Navigation feature in the 2016 Buick Enclave really makes it easy to find your way around when driving this car.
The navigation feature in the 2016 Buick Enclave really made it easy to not get lost on the winding roads of the Pennsylvania mountains. We also loved the up to date traffic information accessible through this system.

It was a great privilege to test drive the 2016 Buick Enclave and we truly enjoyed every minute of it.  It proved to be a great family vehicle, very roomy and with loads of luxurious amenities.  Besides the 4G LTE™ Wi-Fi Powered by OnStar® (for up to 7 devices), the BOSE speakers, and the navigation system, the dual moon-roof option was also a BIG family favorite.  This car came loaded with so many features and techy goodies that I just can’t stop there.

In my opinion, the 2016 Buick Enclave makes a great mid-size SUV crossover option for families who want a lot of space and a wealth of luxurious options without paying big luxury price tags.  You can learn more about it by clicking here.


Needless to say, as a family, we were sad when it was time to say goodbye to the 2016 Buick Enclave. Luckily the lease on the vehicle our family now drives is up in the next year.  We now have the Buick Enclave at the top of our list of possibilities for our next family vehicle.  Not only because of its luxurious ambiance and techy features but because ALL of our stuff can comfortably fit in it when we hit the road on a family road trip (which we do very often).

We LOVED the 2016 Buick Enclave! I’m sure your family would too!
