Buick Encore
Buick Encore 2017 4-door SUV Trim Shown: 2017 Preferred II 4-door SUV AWD Automatic

Derived from the small Chevrolet Sonic, this subcompact SUV feels relatively posh, with a well-finished, quiet cabin and a ride that's better than certain bigger SUVs. On the downside, the little 1.4-liter turbo four-cylinder and six-speed automatic deliver plodding acceleration and just fair fuel economy. The Encore's tidy size makes it easy to maneuver, and its handling is sound but unexceptional. The interior is narrow and cramped, and the swoopy styling intrudes on the view aft. A more powerful Sport Touring version is also available. Reliability has been above average.

2013 Redesign Year
Buick Encore 2016 Trim Shown: 2016 Others

The subcompact Encore near-luxury SUV bowed for 2013, on a platform derived from the small Chevrolet Sonic. The Encore boasts a quiet cabin, great maneuverability, and a better ride than many larger and higher-scoring SUVs. The little 1.4-liter turbo four-cylinder and six-speed automatic deliver anemic acceleration however, and fuel economy is disappointing for a vehicle of this size. Handling is sound, though unexceptional. The cabin is reasonably well appointed, but feels narrow and cramped. The swoopy styling intrudes on the view in the rear.
