The Buick Rendezvous is easy to like, with solid engineering, useful flexibility, and a handsome appearance. Rendezvous is what the industry calls a crossover vehicle. It blurs the lines between sport utilities, minivans, luxury sedans, and station wagons. It carries people more efficiently than an SUV, and it drives more like a minivan than a truck.
Rendezvous seats seven passengers with the optional third-row seats. Its seats are roomy and comfortable and the interior is elegantly designed. The controls feature big knobs and are easy to operate.
The new Rendezvous Ultra is luxurious with elegant leather and wood trim. It’s roomier and can carry more cargo than a Lexus RX 330, the archetype of luxury crossovers. Though not as quiet as a luxury sedan, the Rendezvous rides better than most SUVs. All-wheel drive is available, improving traction and handling in slippery conditions.
Buick Rendezvous is as comfortable as it is practical. It offers a smooth ride, reassuring road manners, and a pleasant cabin. It can be configured to haul six adults in comfort, or a load of lumber from the home-improvement center, or a combination of people and cargo. Rendezvous offers an attractive value with a compelling price and decent fuel economy. It’s priced significantly below such luxury all-wheel-drive vehicles as the Lexus RX 330 and Acura MDX.
