Hands-on with the 2014 Buick EncoreBuick Mar 3rd, 2014
The Buick Encore is awesome. Since it was introduced in late 2012 this nimble, compact SUV has redefined the blossoming compact SUV segment by offering agile handling, roomy seating and handsome looks while simultaneously delivering one of the best fuel economy figures in the class.
Plus, It’s unique size means room for five adults and up to 48.8 cubic feet of storage space with the rear seats folded down…
The Goods: And it comes with awesome standard features like a leather wrapped steering, heated outside mirrors, cruise control, and ice-blue interior lighting
Connect me: Plus, a high-resolution full-colour display radio with IntelliLink, auxiliary input, USB port, six-speaker sound system and Bluetooth…as standard!
Safety First: Even more standard features like 4-wheels disc brakes, StabiliTrak, brake assist, and 10 standard air bags means Encore owners are always protected.
Under the Hood: Encore is powered by a power-dense 1.4L turbocharged engine producing 138hp & 148lb-ft of torque, offering pep when needed but also helping Encore deliver the lowest fuel consumption for a crossover from any domestic automaker!
Hey Good Lookin’: Blue-tinted halogen composite projector-beam headlights, Buick waterfall grill and compact dimensions help Encore stand-out from the crowd.
Double Decker: Storing and hiding loose items is a breeze two standard glove-boxes!
See the light: Even without ticking a single option, all Encore owners are treated to a standard rear-vision camera.
Encore: Distinctly Different.
