General Motors will introduce the 2015 Buick Envision later this month in Chengdu on August 28, but ahead of its debut the manufacturer released the first photos with the interior. The midsize SUV features a left-tilted center console, black piano trim around the 8-inch color touchscreen as well as a chrome trim that delineates various functional areas.
Moreover, the vehicle comes with a three-spoke steering wheel wrapped in leather that is fitted with a segment-first heating element. The steering wheel has buttons and knobs on both sides and lets the driver activate cruise control, play music or make Bluetooth phone calls.
Also a segment first is the Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) that works in connection with the Bose sound system. The FlexRide system offers four driving modes: Normal, Tour, Sport and Off-Road.
The Off-Road mode is a premiere for a Buick model and provides stability when driving on slippery, unstable or bumpy surfaces. According to Buick, the 2015 Envision comes equipped with parking assist, engine start/stop and lane departure warning.
The interior is dominated by the panoramic sunroof that shuts electronically in order to block out the light.
