2013 Buick Enclave Gets NHTSA Five-Star Rating

New Front Center Airbag Credited with High Score

Edward A. SanchezMar 12, 2013
Buick's fullsize crossover, the Enclave, received a five-star overall crash test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the highest score achievable in the government agency's test. The 2013 Enclave, along with its stablemates the Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia, received five stars in the front and side crash ratings, and four stars in the rollover category.

The Enclave also received the Top Safety Pick designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, a private insurance industry association. None of the GM Lambda-chassis crossovers have yet been subjected to the IIHS' new small overlap test. NHTSA added a side pole impact to its crash testing protocol starting with 2011 model vehicles. GM credits the availability of its new front-center airbag for its top safety rating. The 2013 Lambda models scored one star higher than their 2012 counterparts in the NHTSA frontal crash category.

The Enclave and other Lambda models have a solid safety history, receiving five-star NHTSA ratings in most categories since their introduction for the 2008 model year. The Enclave received IIHS' Top Safety Pick designation in 2011 and 2012 as well.
