In 2013 Buick entered the near-luxury crossover segment with its Encore after several years of vehicle line up innovation and development. At nearly 3 feet shorter and 9.1 inches narrower than the Enclave, the Encore delivers on Buick’s traditional strengths. The Encore presents the unique Buick styling points in the waterfall grille, faux hood portals and blue-tinged headlights; standard chrome door handles, silver roof rails and 18-inch alloy wheels add a premium touch, the grille and blue-ringed light bezels evoke the larger Enclave, all in an easy-to-park package.
The interior has much to brag about, at highway speeds it is extraordinarily quiet by virtue of Buick’s active noise cancellation features, the suspension handles the bumps and potholes with complete composure giving the occupants a supremely comfortable ride and there is ample space for passengers and cargo with this superior cabin packaging.
Fine graining along the dashboard and doors meets up with several upscale touches such as fabric-wrapped A-pillars, real metal gearshift trim, bits of chrome and handsome faux wood.
Up front, the wrap-around shapes of the dash and the muted color scheme add to the tranquil ambiance of the interior. Standard features include Buick’s IntelliLink multimedia system, a turbo four-cylinder automatic transmission, front wheel drive, high fuel economy and a budget-friendly pricing.
The front seats allow track back deep enough for tall drivers; the maximum seat-height elevation affords a well-poised high driver position with headroom to spare. In the back you’ll also find that higher seating position along with ample leg and head room. Throughout the cabin you’ll find consistently high quality construction materials; the Encore’s 18.8 cubic feet behind the seats give you abundant cargo area.
When the seats are folded down, that 18.8 cubic feet opens up to an even more spacious 48.4 cubic feet. The Encore's front passenger fold-flat seat additionally allows for longer, narrow objects to fit like skiis, snowboards, ladders, Christmas trees, or just a big load of groceries!
The Encore has a perky acceleration that’s quick enough to make those sometimes abrupt lane changes or evasive maneuvers. The turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder uses its 138 horsepower and 148 pounds-feet of torque to deliver stellar performance.
The 2014 Buick Encore was offered in one basic model with three higher levels of trim and equipment: Convenience, Leather, and Premium. All feature a 138-horsepower Ecotec 1.4-liter turbo four-cylinder engine, combined with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
