2013 Buick Encore Test Drive & Luxury Crossover SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/buick/encore/2013/?id=32972 The 2013 Buick Encore
is an all new model that is poised to take on the compact luxury crossover
segment. The Encore combines a chiseled exterior design, versatile
interior, with tons of technology and premium materials to create a one of
a kind vehicle. The 2013 Buick Encore comes in 4 trims: Base, Convenience,
Leather, and Premium. You can opt for either a FWD or AWD version. The base
price is $24,200 making the Encore a great choice as an entry level luxury
The compact crossover segment is so hot that Buick has decided to bring
this all new model (the Encore) to market. If the Encore looks a little
smaller than most crossover you are used to seeing that's because it is.
This new compact luxury crossover segment just may catch on. The Encore,
like all Buick models, has the big signature grille up front. Buick is no
longer at the bottom of the premium barrel, instead it is moving up the
ladder. The large bold headlamps and the portholes in the hood are
signature Buick cues.
When Buick set out to build the Encore, they did not just want to make
another crossover. Instead they wanted a relatively inexpensive crossover
to look premium. The exterior hits that mark with the multiple bends in the
sheet metal and other styling cues, while the theme is carried over to the
interior with the premium materials and tons of technology. There is plenty
of room in the Encore for 4 adults and their gear.
The 2013 Buick Encore is powered by a turbocharged 1.4 liter 4-cylinder ECOTEC engine
that makes 138 horsepower and 148 lb-ft. of
torque. The transmission is a 6-speed manual and you can opt for either FWD
or AWD. Fuel economy is excellent with the FWD model netting 25 MPG in the
city and 33 MPG on the highway.
From a driver's perspective, the Encore drives very well. Buick has paid a
lot of attention to keeping the engine noise and road noise down to a
minimum. The Encore feels like a very premium vehicle when you get in it.
The Electro-Mechanical steering feels good and is responsive. The interior
is very spacious giving the passengers plenty of head room. The soft
leather seats and nice dash materials contribute to the overall premium
feel which is something you just do not find in a $25k crossover. Buick
understands that technology and connectivity is important in this segment.
So they made Bluetooth and Rear Vision Camera standard on all trims. But
it's the higher trim levels that get the full Infotainment system.
The main competition is the Mini Countryman and the Volkswagen Tiguan. For
a starting price of under $25k the 2013 Buick Encore makes a ton of sense
for a lot of people.

2013 Buick Enclave First Drive Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Buick Enclave is a luxurious people
mover that's been updated for a more modern and sleek design. LED daytime
running lights make for the bold first statement. And optional 20 inch
wheels body-colored everything and a new upscale interior separate the 2013
Buick Enclave from its sister cars the the Chevy Traverse and the GMC
Acadia. We recently had a chance test drive this most popular of all Buick
Models in Kentucky. Check out this first drive review that Roman filed
after hustling the big Buick through the Kentucky countryside.
