In a 2018 comparison test that included the Ford and Jeep, the Buick Park Avenue 2018 placed fifth. Handling also proved to be another Buick Park Avenue 2018 weak spot and we found the steering to be numb.
The Buick Park Avenue 2018, on the other hand, is a better package, as we noted in a 2017 First Test, thanks to its smooth powertrain and well-calibrated brakes that smoothly transition between regenerative and mechanical braking. However, since it isn’t a plug-in hybrid, the Buick Park Avenue 2018 doesn’t have much EV mode range and can only travel around 0.5 miles on electricity.A rearview camera with rear parking sensors is now standard on all models.
The car is the only Buick Park Avenue 2018 trim level that can be had with a cool two-tone exterior color scheme. The ride itself was smooth, and road imperfections were barely felt.”
