The Ideal Crossover For A Small Family

The five-seater Buick Encore comes with a 1.4-Litre turbocharged inline-four engine with two different power outputs. The front-wheel-drive version with standard multi-port injection makes 138 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque. Otherwise, with the optional direct-port injection version FWD you have 153 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. There is only a six-speed automatic transmission available. Should you prefer you can also drive an all-wheel model. The Encore comes with 18-inch wheels and LED daytime running lights.

The compact Buick Encore SUV is very maneuverable and easy to fit into any parking space. The Encore comes with traditional good looks that are sculpted with a front fascia and grille that sleekly flow to the rear, and the stylized Buick tri-colour shield with horizontal wings that always attract people's attention. The changes for 2018 include a standard capless fuel-filler and a new colour for the car's exterior of Coppertino Metallic. Also available are an ionizing interior air cleaner and an HD radio.

Safety Features

Safety measures have been taken into consideration with the 2018 Encore build, and the Encore is equipped with ten standard airbags and other available advanced safety technologies for protecting you on the road. The NHTSA issued the 2017 Encore the highest five-star rating for the crossover's overall score, and in Motor Trend testing, a 2017 Buick Encore Sport Touring with front-wheel-drive hit 96 km in 8.5 seconds and stopped from 96 km/h in a respectable 37 metres. A rearview camera comes standard and the available driver-assist safety features include rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot warning, front and rear parking sensors, forward collision alert, and lane departure warning.

The Spacious Cabin

The cabin is welcoming and stylish and fitted with soft-touch premium materials and comfortable seating for driver and passengers. The standard equipment includes a six-way power driver's seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel, quiet tuning with active noise cancellation, and an eight-inch-diagonal touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. As well, there is built-in OnStar with 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot for keeping you connected while on the drive.
