2013 Buick Encore First Drive
The 2013 Buick Encore crossover delivers Buick's signature style, interior acoustic refinement and luxury amenities in a maneuverable, versatile and efficient package designed to appeal to a new audience of buyers. With room for five and up to 48.4 cubic feet (1,371 liters) of storage space with the rear seat folded, Encore offers substantial cargo capacity along with its confident, higher driving position, available all-wheel drive and contemporary crossover styling. Buick's exclusive QuietTuning is standard, and features Buick's first use of Bose Active Noise Cancellation technology. Additional standard features include 10 air bags, StabiliTrak stability enhancement and a 138-horsepower (102 kW) Ecotec 1.4L turbo four-cylinder/six-speed automatic powertrain, along with technologies such as Buick's voice-activated IntelliLink. It uses Bluetooth or a USB to connect the driver's smartphone to a seven-inch, high-resolution, full-color display radio. The introduction of Encore gives Buick four models with turbocharged four-cylinder engines and six models with EPA-estimated highway fuel economy of 30 mpg or more. It joins Verano -- Buick's third all-new sedan in three years -- to expand the brand's lineup and continue the momentum the Enclave crossover began almost five years ago.

No Main Competitors What I have to say about the 2013 Encore: The 2013 Buick Encore is one of the few cars that are mostly in a class by itself, but still has some competitors. One thing that was surprising was the amount of room, since its a pretty tiny crossover. However in the cabin you will find pretty good materials and a very user friendly cabin that is great for a little family. The Encore is slightly under powered with only 138 horsepower on tap the engine should have a bigger displacement. Our tester came in at around $34,000 which is pretty expensive, however it was fully loaded and the Encore does have a nice amount of safety technologies, only if Buick offered the same on the Verano. All in all its a cute little sport ute that should be pretty competitive.

2013 and 2014 Buick Encore Review and Road Test with IntelliLink Infotainment Review
Check out my other videos! http://vid.io/xqoB Who is Alex? Find out here! http://vid.io/xqoF Buick's been on a roll this year, their sales are up and their owner demographics are younger than they have been in recent memory. The cynic in my says that's because half their clientele died of old age, but it has more to do with their product portfolio. Say what? Yep, it's true, the brand I wrote off for dead last decade is targeting younger buyers with designs imported from Europe and finding sales success. The Verano turbo shattered my preconceptions, but can Buick do it again? A brown Encore arrived one rainy morning to see if it was possible. The Encore isn't new, but neither is it an American rehash of a tired Euro model. Instead, it is "badge engineering" 21st century style. When I was a kid you knew a new Buick was coming when Chevy or Oldsmobile announced a new product. You also knew what to expect: the same sheetmetal with a Buick logo on the grille and some padded velour thrones. 30 years later Buick is up to the same old game with an important twist: Buick takes Opel models from Europe. Consequently you won't find a brother-from-another-mother running around with a Chevy logo. Like its sister-ship, the Opel Mokka, the Encore is a small crossover/hatchback closely related to GM's other small car offerings. Euro origins are obvious when you park the Encore in an American parking spot, this Buick is tiny. The Encore's tall profile further accentuates the Encore's 168-inch overall length, which is surprisingly 6-inches longer than a MINI Countryman. The Encore isn't a terribly expensive crossover starting at $24,950 and ending at $31,110 for a full-loaded AWD model. Despite the low starting price, the cabin makes extensive use of soft touch plastics lending a more premium feel to the cabin than vehicles like the MINI Countryman, Acura TSX or Lexus CT. Speaking of MINI, the Countryman, (like the rest of the MINI lineup) is a mixture of trickle-down BMW technology, great switchgear, high-style, cheesy plastics and chintzy headliners. Of course MINI's biggest asset is brand perception while Buick's brand is more of a liability in some demographics. That's really a shame because the Encore has not only a quality feel but a very uniform feel as well. While MINI's cabins are full of highs and lows, everything in the Encore is consistently a notch above the rabble. Equipping the Contryman and Encore as closely as possible reveals the Encore is about $1,500 cheaper once you add to the MINI the features standard on the Encore. Comparing the top-trim of the Encore to the MINI the difference grows to $3,800 in the Encore's favor. Want AWD? The difference grows by about three-grand. The Encore may be small, but the interior is spacious thanks to the tall profile, stubby nose and upright seats. Taller folks will have no problems getting into or out of the front or rear seats thanks to large door openings and a low step-in height. I grabbed a few willing tall people for lunch and successfully (and comfortably) took two 6'5" passengers, one 6'2 gentleman and myself (6') on a 50 minute trek to the prefect burger joint without a single complaint. Because the Encore shares seat frames with GM sedans, there are a few compromises. The lack of a power recline mechanism seems odd, especially considering the 2-positon memory seat found in our tester. Using the sale seat frames and rails as a sedan or coupé meant creating some unusual "platforms" in the floor stamping so the seats could be mounted high to get an SUV-like seating position. Consequently the rear footwells might be a problem for big-footed passengers on long trips. A manual front passenger seat is standard, but most models on dealer lots have the optional power seat The Encore uses the same 1.4L four-cylinder engine as the Chevy Sonic and Cruze. Producing 140 HP at 4,900 RPM this mill isn't targeted at speed addicts. On the bright side, thanks to a turbocharger and some direct-injection magic, the engine manages 148 lb-ft of twist from 1,850-4,900RPM and under certain circumstances it will allow an "overBoost" to 163 lb-ft over the same range for up to 10 seconds. My opinion of the diminutive engine changed constantly during my week with the Encore. In the city the low-end torque provided by the turbo and the low first gear make easy work of 0-40 MPH traffic and the Encore effortlessly zipped into narrow gaps on busy expressways. Thanks to the way the throttle is mapped the engine doesn't feel out of breath cruising on the highway, until you need to pass someone as getting from 60 to 80 MPH takes a Prius-like 8 seconds. Load the Encore up with two people and some luggage and forward progress is noticeably stunted in all situations. However, every time I wished for more power I glanced down at my fuel economy and was reminded that more power consumes more gasoline. Music by Kevin MacLeod

Real First Impressions Video: 2013 Buick Encore AWD Premium Crossover
This Real First Impressions Video, from Real Auto Reports, takes a quick look at the 2013 Buick Encore All-Wheel Drive (AWD) Crossover Utility Vehicle (CUV). As you may have guessed, this is the smallest utility offered by Buick and leverages the platform from the larger GM family of vehicles. The real benefit to Buick buyers is the upgrade in features and luxury touches. Why a small, in-town CUV? Buick felt there was a gap for those who wanted all the luxury features of something larger like their Buick Enclave (same family as the Chevrolet Traverse), but wanted a vehicle right sized for the in-town or urban lifestyle. At about $32,000 the 2013 Buick isn't cheap, but that doesn't mean you don't get a lot of value for your money. The question is whether you like this type of smaller format CUV and if the features and finishes will win you over.
