2017 Buick Encore ratings and reviews
The compact SUV segment is a crowded one, and it seems that the 2017 Buick Encore has realized that it needs to stand out in a crowd. The vehicle's received a new design for the model year, with a sculpted hood, winged grille, and new 18-inch alloy wheels. It now features LED-accented projector-beam headlights and LED-infused taillights. Inside, the car has gotten an upgrade in the tech department, with the addition of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, keyless entry and push-button ignition. Four trim levels are available, the Essence, Preferred, Premium, and Sport Touring. Standard features on the Preferred include Buick Intellilink with an 8-inch touchscreen, cruise control, Bluetooth, a WiFi hotspot and a rearview camera. The Essence has leather trim and heated front seats and steering wheel. The top-level trim, the Premium, has Bose audio, parking assist, lane departure warning, and forward collision alert. The engine is a 1.4-liter turbocharged inline-4 with either 138 horsepower or 153 horsepower.
