Buick Encore: Small Footprint and Spacious Interior

If you are shopping for an SUV that is nimbler while still providing you plenty of room, the Buick Encore should be your next test drive. The Encore may be the smallest SUV in the Buick lineup, but it still feels spacious once you get inside. No matter if you need room for people or luggage, you will find the space you need. The Encore has signature Buick styling that delivers a high-end feel and turns heads wherever you take it. People will first focus on the horizontal wings and tri-color shield before their eyes are drawn to the sculpted look along the sides and the LED lighting throughout.

Sit in the front seat, and it is apparent the cabin is designed for maximum comfort, with an elegant dash and all the controls in easy reach. The luxury continues inside the Encore, although only you and your passengers will get to experience it. Between the 8-inch touchscreen color display for infotainment and the 4.2-inch Driver Information Center, everything you want to know is within a glance. Let your hands rest on the leather-wrapped steering wheel while sitting in the heated front seats while your passengers take advantage of the 4G LTE connectivity. As an SUV, the Buick Encore is also incredibly versatile, giving you as much as 48.4 cubic feet for storage and the ability to fit objects measuring 8 feet in length.

Check Out the Restyled 2017 Buick Encore


Although the 2017 Buick Encore is mostly identical to the previous model year, a few updates are worth noting, most of which are stylistic. The nose has been restyled, and there have been other small exterior adjustments, including LED headlights that hadn't previously been available and a new design for the standard LED taillights. Inside, you will see that both the center stack and dashboard are new, completing the updated feel. Remember that on the most recent Encores, you get 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto all as standard. Other updates of note include extended paint colors, redesigned 18-inch wheels, the new 4.2-inch Driver Information Display, push-button start, and keyless entry.

Exploring the History of the Buick Encore


The Buick Encore earned the title of being among the smallest luxury crossovers in 2013, with a length that was 33 inches shorter than the larger Buick Enclave. It came in three different trim levels, all of which used a 1.4-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder with 138 horsepower plus a torque of 148 pound-feet and the choice of front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. It worked with a 6-speed automatic and came standard with electric power steering, 18-inch aluminum wheels, dual gloveboxes, 10 airbags, a rearview camera, and ambient lighting. It also offered dual-zone automatic climate control, Bose sound with seven speakers, and forward collision alert.

For the 2014 model year, the Buick Encore more or less remained the same, although the safety equipment was expanded to include side blind zone alert and rear cross-traffic alert. The exterior shade of Glacier Blue Metallic was also discontinued this year. The only major update for 2015 was the addition of 4G LTE Wi-Fi. The 2016 Buick Encore had exciting changes, including the new Sport Touring trim version that ran on an upgraded version of the turbocharged engine. This trim built on the Convenience model, including its features, such as blind-spot warning, the auto-dimming rearview mirror, and remote ignition, along with unique exterior styling.
