Encore – Buick’s best-selling vehicle in North America.

This GM brand is known for a quiet cabin and Encore delivers, thanks to Buick’s QuietTuning technology. Specially laminated glass along with sound deadening materials are among many items acoustical engineers employ to keep outside noise, outside.

The interior in our top-of-the-line trim, Essence, is very nice and comfortable, not over-the-top, but true quality throughout the cabin. Its infotainment system is well thought out and easy to use.

Powering our Encore is an optional 1.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that boasts a wee bit more horses than the base motor, 153 to be exact, which is more than the standard engine. Other highlights for the 2019 Encore:

  • All-wheel drive is available
  • Available 1.4L turbo engine offers more horsepower and torque than the standard engine
  • Encore Sport Touring features unique design cues such as a winged rear spoiler, 18-inch aluminum premium-finished wheels and body-color door handles
  • Experience Buick Package is available on Essence and includes navigation, tilt-sliding power moonroof and 18-inch chromed aluminum wheels
  • LED headlamps are standard on Essence
  • LED daytime running lamps are standard on all mode

The ride quality is reassuring without being jittery at highway speeds. And that says a lot, considering Encore’s short wheelbase.

Pricing begins at $23,200.

No one manufacturer has an edge over another these days, so select the price range and type of sport ute that fits your needs and start exploring.
