The Buick Encore is all new for 2013. It is a genre bending small crossover with great fuel economy and lots of premium features. It features modern, attractive styling and plenty of interior amenities. Buick is trying something new with the Encore, combining a set of attributes not normally associated with one vehicle. It's premium, but small and efficient.
Quiet; refined; great fuel economy; spacious; lots of standard features; available all-wheel-drive.
The Buick Encore competes with other small SUVs and crossovers as well as with some of the more premium small cars available on the market. It offers buyers a tantalizing blend of small size, luxury and SUV-like proportions. All-wheel-drive is available but the Buick is less about off-roading and more about cruising in comfort. It is an interesting blend, with luxurious touches found on cars costing much more but with similar economy and size to cars costing less. A base Encore can be had for under $25,000.
