We share our first impressions of the 2024 Buick Envista, its driving characteristics, exterior styling, and some of the compromises we have found in our initial time with this test car. Also, we explain how legroom is measured in CR's test for three-row SUVs, and discuss whether or not you should upgrade an older vehicle to gain the latest safety features.
