Encore is a small crossover that is unmatched in the luxury segment. It is maneuverable, versatile and efficient. With room for five and up to 48.4 cubic feet of storage space, it delivers substantial cargo capacity -- along with a confident, higher driving position and available all-wheel drive.
Buick's exclusive QuietTuning is standard and includes Bose Active Noise Cancellation technology.
For 2015, Encore focuses on today's ever-increasing need for advanced in-vehicle communication and infotainment access, with new OnStar with 4G LTE and standard built-in Wi-Fi hotspot.
Encore's sculpted styling identifies it as a contemporary Buick. Signature cues include a waterfall grille, chrome accents and surrounds, portholes on the hood and painted lower panels. Standard body-color door handles with chrome strips and a styled, stainless steel exhaust tip add to the premium look.
Blue-accented halogen composite projector-beam headlamps and detailed taillamps further enhance the Encore exterior; and 18-inch, five-spoke painted aluminum wheels are standard.
Inside, the Encore's distinctive styling carries over to a flowing instrument panel that wraps naturally into the door panels. A prominent central instrument panel houses the 7-inch, high-resolution, full-color display for the standard IntelliLink voice-activated infotainment system. It also features displays for the SiriusXM Satellite Radio and standard rearview camera, as well as the available GPS-enabled navigation system.
Buick Encore is powered by an efficient, Ecotec 1.4L turbocharged four-cylinder engine and six-speed automatic transmission. It generates 138 horsepower and 148 lb.-ft. of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission backs the engine. It is part of a family of six-speed front- and all-wheel-drive transaxles developed for small cars and crossovers.
