Think summer is the only season to load up the car and head off on a family adventure? Think again! Winter can also be a wonderful opportunity to take a road trip and create vacation memories that will last a lifetime -- especially when your ride is the latest in family-friendly luxury and safety, the new 2013 Buick Enclave.

Form Meets Function

The Enclave boasts a stylish exterior, but its good looks aren’t just skin deep. Inside, there are three rows of first class seating for up to eight passengers (no more kid squabbles over space!), a gorgeous and user-friendly high-tech instrument panel, and tri-zone climate controls. The cabin’s QuietTuning technology helps block external noise, which means you’ll be able to have actual family conversations while en route -- unless, of course, the kids are happier watching their favorite movie on the available overhead entertainment system. Another thing you might not hear: Cries of “Are we there yet?!” from the peanut gallery.

Room for All Your Stuff

So you’ve got a seat for everyone. What about your stuff? There’s plenty of room in the Enclave -- even with all three rows of seats up, there’s still more than 20 cubic feet of space in back [1], enough for a couple of small suitcases and a few other odds and ends, too. And if you’re a family of four, that cargo space triples when you flip the third row of seats down.

Mother’s Helpers

It’s the little details that moms will really appreciate: second-row seats that slide forward using just one hand (because when do you ever have both hands free?), a power liftgate, a USB port [2] for your smartphone, and voice-activated everything.

Last But Not Least: Safety First

With seven airbags [3] (including a new front center air bag between the two front passengers), a Rearview Camera System to check behind the vehicle, Side Blind Zone Alert [4] to make lane changes easier, and OnStar Directions and Connections [5] standard for the first six months, Buick Enclave has you and your precious cargo completely covered.

So pack your bags, grab the kids and load up the Enclave for a family road-trip adventure. After all, shouldn’t getting there be half the fun?
