2013 Buick Encore Test Drive & Luxury Crossover Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/buick/encore/2013/?id=32972 The 2013 Buick Encore is a compact luxury crossover based on an Opel vehicle called the Mokka. This all new model is built on GM's Gamma II Platform which also includes cars like the Spark, Sonic, and Cobalt. The Buick Encore has seating for 5 passengers and combines technology, luxury amenities, and a fuel efficient engine into one reasonably priced sub-compact crossover with the base model costing $24,200. The 2013 Buick Encore is a handsome little CUV in a class that is growing quickly. The stylish Encore is uniquely positioned as the only luxury entry among sub-compact crossovers. The 1.4 liter turbocharged engine makes 138 horsepower and 148 lb-ft or torque. The Encore is equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The small engine results in good fuel economy ratings of 25 MPG in the city and 33 MPG on the highway. The Encore rides well for a short wheelbase crossover and is also extremely quiet. The exterior design may catch your eye but it's the luxurious leather interior that will win you over. There is a whole lot of style in this pint-sized CUV. The 2-tone leather upholstery with contrasting stitching really delivers the feel of luxury. The Encore has all the bases covered when it comes to technology. The Buick Intellilink Infotainment system is located in the dash and provides a whole myriad of services including Bluetooth phone, satellite radio, navigation, weather, and more. The 2013 Buick Encore can't really be compared to anything currently on the market. It's not an SUV but rather a sub-compact luxury CUV and no other vehicles tick those boxes. The Encore is a cute-ute more inline with city driving. See More Car Videos http://www.autobytel.com/car-videos/?id=32972 Join Our Facebook Page http://www.facebook.com/autobytel
