2021 Buick Encore Review

Overview
Nimble and agile. Comfortable and connected. Sophisticated and tasteful. The Buick Encore is the perfect urban-luxury SUV. You’ll know why after just one drive. Choose from two trims: Preferred and 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. You’ll stay connected in your Encore thanks to the Buick Infotainment System1. It features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and a built-in available Wi Fi hotspot. 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. Sized to fit the way your life moves.
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. A Built-In Available 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot supports up to seven devices so everybody can surf post stream and more. And with the available myBuick Mobile App and available Remote Access you can control your Encore with your smartphone. The Buick Encore. Connect your way.
Safety
Your Buick Encore can help you be more aware of potential hazards. Ten airbags and a Rear Vision Camera are standard equipment. Available Forward Collision Alert can let you know when it detects a potential front-end collision. When you’re backing out of a driveway or a parking spot available Rear Cross Traffic Alert can warn you of oncoming vehicles. And if your Encore detects that you’re unintentionally drifting out of your lane available Lane Departure Warning can give you visual and audible alerts. The Buick Encore. Drive with confidence.
Performance
Enjoy every twist and turn the road brings in the Buick Encore. Your Encore’s 1.4-liter turbocharged engine makes merging and passing easy—and it gets up to an EPA-estimated 30 miles per gallon. Available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive 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. Turbocharge your fun factor.
