Minimizing noise and structural rigidity, as well as minimized harshness and steady vibration, were heavy considerations and top priorities that went into the design and production of the latest new Envision model. In terms of size, the lengths and wheelbase are right in between the Audi and Acura while the Enclave is the narrowest of them all by more than 1.3 inches. On the interior, the Enclave is similar in size to the Audi Q5.

The backside has a very sophisticated 4 link suspension which has isolation quite abundant. What is known as and considered “Ride Bushings” cushion for impacts and on the Enclave are hydraulic while on the lateral the bushings are slighter harder and allow for more accurate handling?
