Buick's new 2017 Encore strengthens the appeal of its small SUV with more refined styling and new connectivity technology.
A new front-end appearance and a new premium interior highlight the visual refinements, while Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are supported by a next-generation IntelliLink system. Push-button start, keyless unlock via the exterior door handles and an 8-inch color touchscreen highlight the Encore's roster of new standard features.
The new design features the sculptural surfacing and elegant line work that continues to distinguish the Buick brand. The addition of the winged grille with Buick's new tri-color insignia, new front headlamps and rear LED signature tail lamps contemporize the Encore and set up the visual flow around the entire vehicle. Uplevel models receive Buick's full LED headlamps, which provide efficient, clear lighting of the road ahead.
Also new are a chrome exhaust outlet, body-color heated outside mirrors, a new 18-inch wheel design and three exterior colors: Black Cherry Metallic, Ebony Twilight Metallic and White Frost Metallic.
All 2017 Encore models offer room for five and up to 48.4 cubic feet of storage space with the 60/40 split rear seat folded. Standard features include 10 airbags and StabiliTrak stability enhancement and a 1.4L turbo four-cylinder/six-speed automatic powertrain.
Buick's exclusive QuietTuning is standard on all models and includes Bose Active Noise Cancellation technology. Encore also offers available active safety features including Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Park Assist, Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning.
