The 2021 Buick Encore is a crossover SUV with space for five people to ride in. The Encore is the smallest SUV in Buick’s lineup. Its small dimensions and strong steering make it an ideal choice for families moving around Youngstown, Ohio, especially since you’ll find it easy to maneuver into tight parking spots.
The Encore is powered by a 1.4-liter engine that produces 138 horsepower. The suspension will help you enjoy a smooth ride even when you’re driving over uneven surfaces. If you select the front-wheel-drive version, you’ll get 25 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. These fuel economy numbers drop to 24 mpg and 29 mpg respectively if you select all-wheel drive.
In addition to its five seats, the Encore offers a large amount of storage space behind the second row. For more storage, you can fold down the second row of seats.
To keep passengers entertained, the Encore provides an infotainment system that’s compatible with smartphones and has a six-speaker audio system. An 8-inch touch screen comes as standard equipment. Passengers can also connect to the internet via your Buick’s 4G wireless hot spot. One of the optional add-ons will give you access to real-time navigation and weather updates. Safety add-ons include lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, and forward collision warning.
The Encore is available in two trims that are relatively similarly priced: the Basic and Preferred. The Basic trim is available in white only, so if you’d prefer to choose your own color, you’ll need to opt for the Preferred. The Preferred also includes carpets for the floor. It’s important not to confuse the Buick Encore with the similarly named Encore GX, which is an SUV aimed at the luxury market. The Encore GX may be the vehicle for you if you don’t mind paying a higher price tag and want a more powerful engine.
The Encore comes with a free maintenance visit during your first year of ownership. In addition, you’ll get four years or 50,000 miles of limited warranty coverage and a six-year warranty on the Encore’s power train.
