GM launched this new versatile crossover that made its debut at the Detroit Auto Show of this 2013 to stick with the Buick brand relaunch that started some years ago with its Verano model.

Brief Review, Some Facts, Pictures, Features & Specs


The Encore 2013 is a worthy younger brother of the Buick Enclave. At first glance you notice that they are from the same family, but this one is shown as a scale model. It is elegant, quick, efficient and luxurious. If you really want an affordable sport utility vehicle that turn heads, this is the one.

The design lines leave no room for confusion. The waterfall-style grille, chrome accents, lower panels painted in body color, headlights with a blue protection and the design of the rear lights emphasizes its premium vehicle appearance and the DNA of Buick. The chrome wheels are 18 inches.

The Encore is a <strong>European-style sport utility</strong> vehicle that is manufactured in South Korea and hopes to conquer the U.S. market with its luxury, good design and an engine that delivers up to 33 miles per gallon

Inside offers comfortable space for five passengers and a cargo area of 48.4 cubic feet with the rear seats folded. The driving position is very favorable, it has AWD (All-Wheel-Drive traction) and a contemporary style.

It has 10 air bags and a turbocharged 1.4L Ecotec four-cylinder engine and 140 horsepower. It also has six-speed automatic transmission, IntelliLink system which uses Bluetooth or USB to connect the driver's smartphone to the seven inch LCD display and was also included the QuietTuning system which prevents the penetration of noise.

The Encore has an organic style that runs through the instrument panel and wraps it naturally. In the middle lies the display. The mixture of dark and light tones distinguishes the cabin which features ambient lighting in blue color.

This elegant Buick has also remote start button, dual-zone climate control, rain-sensing wipers, Bose premium sound system, OnStar, Sirius XM satellite radio, heated multifunction steering wheel and power driver seat with six options adjustment.

At the steering wheel it feels more like a compact hatchback. For its compact size it does not give the feeling of being in an SUV. It is easy to park in the city, and very agile to move in transit.

It has MacPherson front suspension and among the safety functions stand out the StabiliTrak stability control, ABS brakes with electronic brake distribution, Brake Assist, All Wheel Drive System, front collision alert and lane change, park assist, rear-view camera and OnStar communication system in case of accidents or issues with the vehicle.

Worried because SUVs spend more money on gas? Take it easy, this Buick is ultra efficient if you compare it with other vehicles of its segment. It offers an EPA fuel economy of 25 miles per gallon within the city and an amazing fuel economy on highways of 33 MPG in the standard 6-speed automatic transmission model.

That starting or MSRP price of this wonderful and complete sport utility is $24,200 only in the base model, seriously, not bad for a luxury SUV listed in the range of less than $25000. The final price of the premium model fully equipped is around $31,475 which includes navigation package which has a value of $795, again, not bad for the market standards of these days.

For a small fraction of time, it brought to my mind the ugly Pontiac Vibe smiley Looking deeply, yep, it is a beautiful SUV in a better size than the Enclave which is extremely overpriced. Hey John, nice photos buddy

The internal distribution of this SUV is perfect as well as its design, but let's face it, a 1.4L engine? Hell no! that means a boring handling for me I just drove a Hyundai Elantra 2013 which has a 1.8L engine and it was too slow, boring as hell, specially when you are overtaking another car.
There's no such thing as cheap and cheerful. It's cheap and nasty or expensive and cheerful. NYC Style!

I really like all the new Buick cars, I can see myself in the Lacrosse or this Encore. I Just saw the ad of the new Encore and I love it. I think I'm the only one that starts singing Lovely Cup at the top of my lungs when this commercial comes on. smiley
Peace, Love, United, Respect... that's my religion ;-J
