Many premium vehicles taut their soft-touch seating materials and high-tech infotainment systems, but nothing quite rivals the luxury of road noise isolation. According to U.S. News & World Report, if you’re looking for one of the quietest SUVs in 2021 to enjoy a truly serene driving experience, the new Buick Enclave is a top choice.
“At $40,000, the Buick Enclave is pricey for a mainstream midsize SUV, but that extra money is well spent if you’re seeking a comfortable cabin that filters out road noise,” wrote U.S. News contributor Steven Loveday.
The key to the Enclave’s hushed cabin is QuietTuning™ technology, which strikes at noise from three angles. It reduces noise at the source, blocks noise from getting into the Enclave, and absorbs the noise that does manage to get in.
To achieve this, the Enclave uses acoustic insulation materials under the hood, on the steel dash panel, and in the headliner and doors. It also has an acoustic laminated windshield and side glass, triple sealed doors, and dual-density carpet. And that’s not all: Buick also uses an isolated engine cradle, hydraulic suspension bushings, and specially-tuned tires to reduce vibrations.
Finally, for those pesky sounds that do manage to penetrate all of those barriers, some Buick Enclave models even use Active Noise Cancellation, powered by Bose®, to further ensure that nothing interrupts your good time.
