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.
