2019 Buick Encore Review

Overview
When the first luxury-compact SUV hit the market nobody knew how important the occasion was. Now it’s the vehicle of choice for a growing majority of car buyers. Drive a Buick Encore and see why. Choose from four models starting with the Base Encore and moving through the top-of-the-line Essence. ?The Encore is a Buick so you expect it to be refined. Active noise cancellation and Buick QuietTuning Technology work together to help reduce block and absorb unwanted noise. ?But just because you can’t hear the outside world that doesn’t mean it’s not there . You’ll stay connected in your Encore thanks to the Buick Infotainment System. It features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and a built-in 4G LTE WiFi hotspot is available. ?Your Encore uses cameras and radar technology to help you stay aware with available features like Rear Cross Traffic Alert Side Blind Zone Alert and Forward Collision Alert. Choose from a variety of colors options and accessories= and build an Encore that’s all yours. The Buick Encore. All you’d expect—and more.
Technology
Your Buick Encore is loaded with technology. All you have to do is walk up to it with the key fob in your pocket and your Encore unlocks the driver’s door for you. The Buick Infotainment System features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The available built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot supports up to seven devices so everybody can surf post stream and more. And with the myBuick Mobile App4 you can control your LaCrosse with your smartphone. The Buick Encore. It’s the smart choice.
Safety
Your Buick Encore can help you be more aware of potential hazards. A comprehensive set of airbags and Rear Vision Camera are standard equipment on all Encores. Available Forward Collision Alert can let you know when it detects a potential front-end collision. And when your Cascada detects that you’re you have unintentionally drifting drifted out of your lane available Lane Departure Warning can give you visual and audible alerts. The Buick Encore. Fun and safe.
Performance
Enjoy every twist and turn the road brings in the Buick Encore. An available 1.4-liter turbocharged engine1 makes merging and passing easy—and it has an EPA-estim ated 33 miles per gallon. Available intelligent all-wheel drive3 comes in handy when the weather turns ugly constantly monitoring all four wheels and making sure each one gets the power it needs. And with its nimble maneuverability and tight turning radius darting around town in your Encore is easy. The Buick Encore.
