About Buick Encore

The 2015 Buick Encore compact crossover SUV departs from the division's image as a big luxury-car manufacturer by offering younger buyers something worthy of their hard-earned dollars. The 5-door Encore SUV may be small, but its stylish exterior and lavish interior place it in league with such popular makes as the Mini Countryman and Mazda CX-5. This bodes well not just for first-time Buick buyers, but also empty nesters looking to downsize without giving up comfort, value and need for AWD. Named the Best Compact Crossover in KBB's 5-Year Cost to Own segment for 2014, the Encore has proven its worth long-term, which may help some swallow the Encore's $25,000-$35,000 price range, a significant premium over the Kia Soul or Nissan Cube.

"This is the first new car I've bought in over 25 years, so I shopped for value and reliability! So far, this car has exceeded my high expectations in every category, and even exceeds the EPA gas mileage estimates: I routinely get 32 miles per gallon in this beauty!"

"Well the Buick Experience 2-year lease is up and I was sad to see "Squirt" go. I was able to see 39 mpg on one tankful while keeping the speeds at 60 mph. This car was great for daily commuting and could handle the smallest of parking lots with easy. Great quality materials with a rich look and feel that my Japanese car owning friends would compliment. Knock down the front seat and put the fiancé in the back seat behind had no problems handling IKEA impulse buy. There is a reason Automobile magazine said the Encore is a $13,000 less expensive BMW X1."

"I've had my little encore for about 2 weeks now and it's put FUN back in driving for me.I can zip in out of traffic and cruise down the hwy in comfort and style. I love that it doesn't look like all other SUV's. I'm a very large person and i got into it just fine. I also have a little arthritis and some of the larger SUV's didn't even work for me. I'm loving all the tech in it and learn somthing new everyday. For my first 300 miles i'm getting 24 MPG for city driving the AWD model. It also makes me feel confident while driving. I was able to get alot of extras that i couldn't afford on other models. My 77 y/o mom can get in and out of this SUV very easily also. The backup camera is so nice and adds some of that confident to my driving. So if your considering an SUV and don't need a huge boat sized one. I highly recommend giving the encore at least a test drive. It's even better inside than out. I couldn't get the "10" to check on the very likley scale. I've actually all ready recommended it to friends."
