Buick’s commitment towards building the safest vehicles was validated when the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration awarded a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating to three of Buick’s 2020 SUV models. Buick is proud of the award and further inspired to find ways in which to make their vehicles even safer.
The NHTSA tests vehicles in three areas: Frontal Crash rating, Side Crash rating, and Rollover rating. The Frontal Crash rating measures the impact of a head-on collision at 35 mph for both the driver-side and passenger-side. The Side Crash rating combines scores from side barrier testing, a test to determine the effects of a side-impact collision. Rollover ratings reflect the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over in the event of an accident.
The three SUVs to receive the 5-Star Overall Safety Rating were the 2020 Buick Encore, Envision, and Enclave. The subcompact Encore received four stars in Rollover testing and five stars for both Frontal Crash and Side Crash ratings. The midsize Envision and the large three-row 2020 Buick Enclave both received four stars for Rollover and Frontal Crash ratings to go along with five stars for Side Crash ratings. Forward Collision Warning and Lane Departure Warning are both available in all vehicles.
