The U.S.-spec 2024 Buick Envista crossover made its formal introduction this past April, debuting a new, small, premium crossover for the Tri-Shield brand’s lineup. We think the new Envista looks quite stylish, arguing that it could be considered a crossover coupe for the masses given its relatively affordable price point. Now, we’re taking another look at the 2024 Buick Envista with the following GM Authority Live Photo Gallery.
Captured on the floor of the 2023 Detroit Auto Show, this particular 2024 Buick Envista is an example of the Sport Touring (or ST) trim level, offered as the mid-grade model in the new Envista lineup. The full lineup includes Preferred, ST, and Avenir. This particular example is also covered in Copper Ice Metallic paint (paint code G98), a hue that is also available for the Buick Encore GX in conjunction with the 2024 model year.
The Copper Ice Metallic paint looks good on the Buick Envista’s body panels, especially alongside the black exterior accents of the ST trim level. Up front, we see a black mesh grille flanked by a pair of polished trim wings, with an ST badge mounted in the upper right-hand corner of the grille. Buick’s new Tri-Shield logo is mounted front and center on the nose, while slim lighting signatures occupy the upper corners of the fascia, complemented by square lighting elements lower in the fascia.
In the sides, we see black trim around the wheel arches and lower in the skirts, plus black surrounds for the windows. The sideview mirror caps are black as well, making the bright door panels pop even more. The sideview also reveals the sleek crossover coupe body style mentioned earlier. Don’t forget the optional all-black 19-inch 10-spoke wheels, either. Standard spec for the ST is a set of all-black 18-inch wheels.
The rear end finishes it off with horizontally oriented taillight housings that wrap around from the fenders into the hatch. A prominent horizontal styling line on the hatch adds to the visual width of the crossover, while black lower trim for the bumper houses secondary trim in silver.
As a reminder, the 2024 Buick Envista is equipped as standard with the turbocharged 1.2L I3 LIH gasoline engine. The GM VSS-F vehicle set provides the underpinnings, while production for the North American market takes place at the GM Bupyeong plant in South Korea.
