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 crossover SUV. 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.

Why Buy? | 2017 Buick Encore Review
Motor1 Senior Editor Jake Holmes takes Buick’s refreshed Encore for a spin to see if the For more Buick Encore: http://www.motor1.com/buick/encore/ As-tested price: $36,175 Buick’s best-selling model isn’t a cushy sedan or a huge crossover. It’s the Encore, a small, upright subcompact that gives a lot of what buyers look for in crossovers – all-wheel drive, high seating position – without the cost, fuel consumption, or size of larger models. Though based on the Chevy Trax, the Encore is, as befits a Buick, a notable step up in terms of luxury. Refreshed at the 2016 New York Auto Show, the Encore packs lots of style, comfort, quietness, and equipment into its small body. It’s also still affordable, and gets reasonably healthy fuel-economy numbers on the highway. But that small body might leave some shoppers wishing for extra cargo room or a more capacious back seat. Find out how all of that works as we put the 2017 Buick Encore to the test in our latest Why Buy?
