The Buick Envision has been a part of Buick’s vehicle lineup for several years, but it has never earned much attention on the mainstream auto market. It has made just enough sales to stay on the market, but it has never been the subject of raving critical reviews. In past model years, the Envision was content to simply exist in Buick’s lineup without making much of a splash on its own. However, the 2021 Buick Envision interior proves all that is about to change. 

In order to stay relevant on the mainstream auto market that has become much more competitive for crossover SUVs in recent years, the Buick Envision underwent a complete redesign for the 2021 model year. 

In May of 2020, Buick partially unveiled the first snapshots of the exterior of the 2021 Envision. Critics and drivers alike were impressed by what they saw. The redesigned exterior of the 2021 Envision finally looks like the exterior of a premium, upscale SUV. Although the Envision has always been marketed by Buick as a premium SUV, it has never really stood out on the road in previous model years. For the 2021 model year, however, the Envision looks bolder and more striking than ever before. 

Buick left quite a few details out of their original partial unveiling of the 2021 Envision, however. No pictures of the Envision’s redesigned interior were released with the original unveiling of this compact crossover SUV, so Buick fans were left wondering if the Envision was as luxurious on the inside as it appeared on the outside. 

Just about a month after they initially unveiled the first looks at the 2021 Envision—which is expected to be available for purchase in the United States by late 2020 or early 2021—Buick finally released more details and snapshots of the Envision’s redesigned interior. If you’re as intrigued by the redesigned 2021 Buick Envision as so many other drivers are, keep reading to learn some key details about the interior of the all-new Envision—which will hit the mainstream auto market for the 2021 model year. 

Driver-Centric Layout 

Driver-centric layouts are most commonly seen in sports cars, but the 2021 Buick Envision most certainly has elements of this layout despite its identity as a compact crossover SUV and not a sports car. 

The entire front row of the 2021 Envision is visually split. The dashboard is visually split horizontally and vertically, and HVAC vents visually separate this premium SUV’s 10-inch infotainment touchscreen display from its center console. Plus, its built-in touchscreen display is angled slightly toward the driver, which only contributes to the 2021 Envision’s driver-centric layout in front. 

Attention to Detail 

At the end of the day, attention to detail is really what makes or breaks the interior styling of a car—especially a car that is marketed as a premium or luxury vehicle like the Buick Envision. 

Fortunately, the redesigned 2021 Buick Envision does not disappoint in this area. Its cabin features contrast-stitched leather upholstery with laser-engraved trim that gives this compact crossover SUV a bold yet elegant finishing touch. A panoramic glass roof is the icing on the cake that defines the 2021 Envision as a vehicle with a truly luxurious interior. 

Interior Innovations 

In addition to beautiful upscale styling, the 2021 Buick Envision comes equipped with a variety of innovative interior features that add to the comfort and convenience of its cabin.

Among these features are a head-up display, ventilated seats, a negative-ion air purification system, and a premium Bose surround sound system. The 2021 Envision’s interior is functional as well as fashionable. Its cabin features more than 20 storage spaces, so the inside of your car will never look messy or cluttered. 

The Buick Envision may have been widely overlooked in past model years, but the redesigned 2021 Envision model might just convince more drivers to take a second look at this compact crossover SUV—especially once they see its gorgeous upscale interior.
