When the BuickEncore first made its debut for the 2013 model year, it essentially created a new segment here in the United States. Since then, it has become one of Buick’s most popular models and even with its small size still embodies the Buick spirt of premium features and comfort. The 2017 Buick Encore is no exception.
Buyers can choose from five trim levels: Preferred, Sport Touring, Preferred II, Essence, and Premium. All trims deliver a smooth, quiet ride along with good fuel efficiency and lots of technology. And, with its excellent crash test scores, the Encore can give drivers some extra peace of mind for the road ahead.
For 2017, the Encore gets new front-end styling along with some interior updates and more technology. Buyers will appreciate the addition of both Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ that makes smartphone integration easier than ever.
Standard features in the base Preferred trim include 18-inch alloy wheels, LED running lights, roof rails, a six-way power driver seat, OnStar, a rearview camera, Bluetooth connectivity, 4G LTE Wi-Fi capabilities, two USB ports, and an eight-inch touchscreen IntelliLink system.
Higher trims add features like a rear spoiler, remote start, dual-zone automatic climate control, advanced safety features, leather upholstery, heated front seats, rear parking sensors, and a seven-speaker Bose sound system.
Every Encore model is powered by a 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine. However, it does come in two power levels. The base engine produces 138 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. On all but the base model, a more powerful version is available that generates 153 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. Both versions are paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. All models come standard with front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is an option.
