About Buick Encore

For style-conscious young buyers, as well as empty nesters looking to downsize but not compromise, Buick’s 2017 Encore compact SUV makes a tempting prospect. Although it shares the same platform as the Chevrolet Trax, Buick’s take on the 5-door SUV brings a decidedly upscale flavor more in line with the Mazda CX-3, Mini Countryman and Jeep Renegade Limited. Though it may be tight on interior space, the Encore delivers big in the areas of luxury, efficiency and high-tech. When equipped with the optional all-wheel drive (AWD), the Encore becomes a winter warrior ready to tackle Mother Nature’s worst. We think so much of the Encore we awarded it Best Compact Crossover in KBB’s 5-Year Cost to Own segment.

"Its fun to drive this vehicle. Seats are comfortable and well appointed. Layout of console is well executed and small details from the steering wheel to accent lighting are well thought out and designed to please the driver. Vehicle has maintained solid MPG and performance so far with no issues to speak of. Looks sharp, too!"

"I have owned a lot of new vehicles in my time. I would say about 10 new ones, both Cars, CUVs and Trucks. I must say that the 2013 Buick Encore has got be one of the very best ones I have owned. Fuel milage is excellent. I get about 31 MPG overall. You really can't beat that with a car that weights 3100 Lbs. The ride and handling are excellent. It is very quite inside, with almost no road noise. The car has a lot of goodies included such as Lane Change Warning, Collision Warning, Rear View Camera Heated Steering Wheel and Seats. 6 Way Power Seats on both Driver and Passenger side. The Engine is a small 1.4 Liter with a Turbo charger giving it the boast to really get up and going. All in all an Excellent Vehicle."

"Recently purchased this vehicle. Traded in a Honda. Was looking for something that was relatively fun, stylish, and comfortable. The Encore fits the bill perfectly. Some people have mentioned the power as a negative. I find it to be more than acceptable. Have not experienced a problems with it. The inside is made up of generally high quality materials. The vehicle is extremely quiet under all circumstances. I highly recommend it. Before buying, I test drove the following. Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-3, and Jeep Renegade. After doing that, it was very easy to buy the Encore."
