Is The Buick Envision Really A Near Luxury Vehicle?

I'm posting this question because I just added factory OEM lighted front door sills and they look awesome with the aqua blue light! The parts cost $210 on EBay and another $186 for dealer installation. They look really cool but I've got to say these were standard on my Lincoln MKC.

Any opinions on this? Thanks, Chris

Pictures? I have the flood light emblem that broadcasts on the ground when the door is opened. Would it be too much lighting when combined?

I wish the Envision had its own symbol to represent it sort of like what Japanese brands did more of in the 90's because having that on this sill would be nice.

I can understand Buick leaving some things out to keep pricing low, but I do sometimes wonder about what we lose in exchange. Like the better looking sill plates or cars that won't wobble in turns...The Envision is certainly a nice car and definitely near luxury IMO, but it could be better.

Or you could pay $70,000 and get those features like lighted passenger door sills and cargo sill along with door handles that recess into the door on a Jaguar Velor. The 2.0T version of the Jaguar is not as atheltic as the Envision 2.0T.

Too bad that Buick is at a point where they might need to include more features at a loss to their bottom line just to win over more loyal customers.

If you don't mind shopping prices there has been Premium l's for around $30K. That is about $14,000 off MSRP and about $14,000 less than a Lexus NX having more standard features on the Buick.
