About Buick Encore
Buick's compact Encore crossover SUV for 2016 charts new territory for the luxury automaker, one that hopes to lure in younger, style-conscious buyers. Based on the same platform hosting the Chevrolet Trax, the 5-door Buick Encore brings an upscale vibe that puts it in the same league as the Mini Countryman, Mazda CX-3 and Fiat 500L. Comfortable, efficient and fun to drive, what the Encore lacks in interior space it more than makes up for in personality and capability, especially when outfitted with AWD. Named Best Compact Crossover in KBB's 5-Year Cost to Own segment for 2015, the Encore has more than its fair share of admirers, even if its $25-35K price range places it well above the Kia Soul or Jeep Renegade.
