2024 Buick Envista Fuel Economy Ratings Revealed12
Last month, General Motors unveiled the all-new 2024 Buick Envista set for sale in the U.S. market, offering up an affordable, small crossover packed with premium features. Under the hood, the 2024 Buick Envista cradles an efficient turbocharged engine, but the question is – just how efficient is it? Now, GM Authority has an answer.
As it turns out, fuel economy ratings for the 2024 Buick Envista were recently published in Canada. Official Canadian fuel economy figures typically match (or are at least very close to) figures released by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the United States, and as such, we can glean a little insight into what the EPA figures will likely be prior to their release stateside.
Converting to Canadian figures from liters per 100 km to miles per gallon, we find the 2024 Buick Envista returns an estimated 28 mpg in the city, 32 mpg on the highway, and 30 mpg combined.
|City||8.4 L/100 km||28 mpg|
|Highway||7.4 L/100 km||32 mpg|
|Combined||7.9 L/100 km||30 mpg|
As a reminder, the 2024 Buick Envista is equipped with the turbocharged 1.2L I3 LIH gasoline engine, which is rated at 136 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. Output is routed exclusively to the front wheels through the GM six-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is not offered.
Interestingly, the 2024 Buick Envista’s fuel economy ratings are nearly identical to those of the all-new 2024 Chevy Trax, which rides on the same underpinnings (the GM VSS-F vehicle set) and utilizes the same turbocharged 1.2L I3 LIH powertrain. In fact, the new Trax has a city mpg rating of 8.3 L/100 km, which is 28.3 mpg, while the Envista’s city rating is 8.4 L/100 km, which is 28 mpg on the nose.
For those who may be unaware, the 2024 Buick Envista will be offered in three specific trim levels, including Preferred, Sport Touring (ST), and the range-topping Avenir. ST trims run 18-inch wheels as standard, while Avenir trims run 19-inch wheels as standard.
Pricing starts at $23,495. Orders kick off this summer.

I was reading that the Brazilian Chevy Montana Pickup using the 1.2L I3 has virtually the same fuel economy ratings in Brazil as the Envista/ Trax , 28 city 32 hwy and 30 combined.
With the journalists now driving the Trax , most seem to believe the powertrain is good for the intended vehicle.
This makes me wonder if the Montana is using the exact same powertrain and if it would perform similar in the Montana ?
If the engine is the same and certified for use in the US and Canada, this just makes me wonder if this is not another step in finding a way to build and sell the Montana in North America? What if the vehicle were made in South Korea like the Trax .
I think it would sell like hotcakes. GM is saying the Trax has the potential to be their 3rd best selling vehicle in NA, the Montana could do well in this market too !!
2 problems with your suggestion.
The Montana is built on the GEM platform and wasn’t engineered for US requirements.
I believe importing a truck from a location other than Canada or Mexico would incur the “chicken tax” and it would become way more expensive.
I recently purchased a 2014 Honda CRV with 4-wheel drive and 47000 miles. I’m getting a combined 30 mpg regularly and question why ten years later, a new Trax 2-wheel drive doesn’t show improved mileage. I assume emissions are better which should be for $$ spent.
Someone gave you thumbs down. Don’t know why. Easier to thumbs down than explain their point? Your point is quite valid. Givin you thumbs up.
Based on that thought process, why isn’t a 2023 getting better mileage than the 30 you’re suggesting? And why is a Honda HRV getting worse than the larger CRV?
GMC Fan: Very well said. Totally valid and exactly what I was thinking.
Can’t wait to see and test drive the new Buick Envista. If the new Envista is all what it’s supposed to be
I’ll be leasing one or buying one .
Respectable , but the escape gets more and has hybrid option for base price 30k . Losing the small compact war .
Or you could go out and buy the cleanest (western or southern state car) 2006-2011 Buick Lucerne with the big V6, 4 speed auto and way more comfort and get the same basic MPG.
My point is simply that the automakers seem to be lost in MPG land with no signs of improvement. When this much smaller vehicle with less than half the engine and 2 extra gears can’t muster much better than the Lucerne I mentioned, I can only ask myself what gives.
My 2016 GMC Yukon XL W/A 5.3 V8, 4 wheel drive , weights in at 6,200 pounds, tows my 25′ trailer very easily, seats 8, holds the luggage for 8, 0 to 60 in 5.9 seconds, just as quiet as a tesla, & can easily go 600 miles on a tank (31 gallons) of gas,averages 20.6 MPG.
There have been several reviews of the 2024 Trax where reviewers are reporting 18-20mpg on mixed driving. They are having to really wring out that 1.2L engine to make it usable on anything other than perfectly flat roads. That flogging takes its toll on fuel economy.
We just picked up our Blue Glow 2024 Trax LT. Color sparkles in the sunlight, looks fantastic. Car drives great, no concerns about amount of power, tech is unbelievable at this price point. With discounts (MSRP $24,680) out-the-door price came to $24k, thanks GM Card.
So far we have had a mix of driving conditions but leaning towards more highway, after 227 miles we are at an average of 33.7mpg. The best 50 continuous miles is at 45mpg, best 25 continuous miles is 47.2mpg. We are not the type to bash the the peddle to the floor, just driving as a normal driver would but giving it the gas when needed. Time will tell with where the mileage will go but so far so good.
