2023 BMW X4 vs. 2023 Buick Enclave


The 2023 Buick Enclave impresses with its sleek and gleaming exterior, spacious 3 row cabin, and joyful handling.  But is this enough to beat the 2023 BMW X4, a vehicle which has received acclaim for its ravishing appearance, agile performance, and extensive cabin comforts?

Design & Style

The BMW X4 is swoopier than its smaller sibling the X4 with a fastback presentation that is pleasing to the eyes. Its square back structure offers greater practicality with the option of a 4 cylinder turbocharged engine and standardized all-wheel drive. Its latest updates for this year include standardized keyless entry across its lineup as well as the phasing out of infotainment system gesture controls in the Premium package.

The Buick Enclave is a moderately sized vehicle with a quiet and comfortable cabin that is ideal for cross country trips. Its latest updates for the year include the swapping out of the twenty inch wheels in its Sport Touring Package for black painted glossy ones. Buick has also introduced a new exterior paint color this year called Moonstone Gray Metallic. Those that desire the most powerful and luxurious variant will purchase Avenir.

Technology & Safety

The Buick Enclave comes with a number of standardized features such as pedestrian detection and emergency automated brakes. However, buyers will have to pay extra for things like adapted cruise control. Its cabin offers amenities such as wifi, weather and traffic updates in real time, dual USB ports and an eight inch infotainment system called IntelliLink which is user friendly with high resolution graphics. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are also available.

The BMW X4 comes with the same safety features as the Enclave, including emergency automated brakes, lane management, frontal impact alerts, multiple airbags and adapted cruise control. Its cabin amenities include a twelve inch touch display, navigation system that is fully integrated, climate control, and HD radio, Android Auto or Apple CarPlay with leather upholstery.


The most powerful BMW X4 is the M40i, which has a six cylinder turbocharged engine that generates 382 horsepower and enables it to accelerate the vehicle from zero to sixty in just 4.2 seconds. The BMW Enclave is powered by a V6, 3.6 liter engine that can generate 310 horsepower with the ability to accelerate from zero to sixty in 6.5 seconds.

The Bottom Line

The Buick Enclave seats two additional passengers, but falls short when it comes to performance. It also lacks the fuel efficiency of the BMW, which means drivers will pay more at the pump, and this combined with its mediocre cabin materials makes the BMW X4 the winner.
