Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive
“”

With its refined ride and ample sound deadening, the 2019 Encore is pleasant on the road. It’s much more suited to life as an urban hatchback cruiser than a sporty crossover. The Encore’s base engine and its uprated engine offer moderate acceleration.

Refined and quiet, rolling on 18-inch wheels, the Encore supplies a smooth and well-composed ride. As a rule, it copes well with rough surfaces, though its size means its ride gets busy when traversing uneven or bumpy terrain at highway speeds.

Sound-deadening materials and acoustic glass create a cocoon-like experience that’s rare in vehicles of this size. Such serenity makes it easier to enjoy the optional Bose sound system.

The Encore is among the thriftiest crossovers. With front-drive, the standard 138-horsepower turbo-4 is EPA-rated at 25/30 mpg City/Highway, or 27 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive reduces each figure by 1 mpg. The step-up 153-horsepower engine, with stop/start and front-wheel drive, is EPA-rated at 26/31 mpg City/Highway, or 28 mpg Combined.

Walk Around

“”

The Encore’s simple, elegant lines have aged well. It wears an appealing blend of curves and smooth body lines, on a somewhat narrow overall structure.

A squared-off hood and comparably-shaped roofline banish the wedge profile used by so many of today’s compact cars and crossover SUVs. Despite modest dimensions, elements of classic SUV styling can be seen along the Encore’s body.

Interior Overview

Editor:
New Car Test Drive
“”

There’s a lot to appreciate within the Encore’s neatly-finished, if rather narrow, cabin. Trim details suggest higher quality than might be expected. In fact, Buick has filled the Encore with premium-feel materials, while offering a variety of color options.

A high-mounted 8.0-inch touchscreen serves as the dashboard’s centerpiece. Leather is unavailable except in top Essence trim; others have standard cloth upholstery.

Despite lack of a central armrest, the Encore’s front seats are supportive and comfortable. In the back row, most adults will rub shoulders as they ride. Both legroom and head clearance are limited, especially if the optional moonroof is installed. Only small rear-facing car seats will fit.

The Encore is a small car and its small back seat means four adults at most will fit, though three small people will be fine in the back seat.

With its rear seatbacks up, an Encore offers 19 cubic feet of cargo space. Space grows to 48 cubic feet with seatbacks folded down.

Summary

Editor:

“”

If size is a bigger priority than space the Buick Encore delivers a refined experience and premium feel. Active-safety technology is limited, but even the entry-level Encore is generously equipped; the Encore Essence might be the best overall value.
