KBB Expert Review:

Few brands have gone through more dramatic changes in recent years than Buick, and the Encore — along with other new SUVs like the Envision — is one reason the GM premium marque is attracting so many new, young buyers. Buick’s smallest utility vehicle offers a good mix of features at a reasonable price. That includes optional all-wheel drive, a must in wet and snowy climes. Despite its small size it is also reasonably roomy inside, and the cabin is surprisingly quiet. With a complete makeover due in 2020, this year brings relatively modest changes to the Buick Encore.

You’ll Like This Car If…
If you’re looking for a small but stylish SUV that’s big on features you’d normally expect from a luxury brand, the 2019 Buick Encore is clearly worth checking out.

You May Not Like This Car If…
You might think twice about the 2019 Buick Encore if you need a lot of interior space or are trying to get the most on a tight budget (…).

At 50yrs old, my first brand spanking new car! by Foretraveler from Denver, CO on Thu Jan 24 2019

I had seen the commercial on TV like a thousand times during the Holidays for the $49 down program with the 2019 Buick Encore (Denver). One day I decided to just go see one, that’s it. Just look at it to see what one looks like and feels like in person. Surprising, even to myself, I bought it that day. I was coming out of a big Cadillac DTS Sedan with every bell and whistle imaginable including leather, heated this heated that, cooled this cooled that, every mod-con one could add to a car, most of which I never even used. This Encore has been a breath of fresh air for me. I knew I wanted out of the Caddy and all that ‘glam’, but I didn’t want a gigantic SUV either. I thought I wanted another, maybe smaller sedan. Nope. This car is very agile, easy to drive, powerful (turbo), excellent on gas, can feel the build strength and interior quietness is quite noticeable after coming out of an older car with no sound deadening, at least not to this degree in the slightest. The safety features abound with airbags galore and featuring the Onstar system. The massive in-dash screen is fabulous and very easy to use, once you figure it out. Being able to connect ones phone to the car without even touching the phone or car screen is just, well, awesome! It will even begin playing whatever music I was listening to on my phone all by itself. Answering phone calls and even answering texts can be done without so much as a lift of a finger. It can be done with only your voice! Whhaaatt???After having leather heated seats for a few years slipping and sliding all over them, now having basic cloth seats is fantastic!! We’ve had cold weather since I purchased this car and not once was the car ‘freezing’ on the inside like it was in the Caddy or even slightly uncomfortable. I have yet to resort to wearing a parka, scarf, gloves and hat while I sit and wait for the car to heat up. Not necessary in this car. Also, while driving on icy roads or slippery conditions, not once has there been an issue there with slippage or anything. The Caddy, as big and heavy as it was would slide all over the place. This perfect little SUV, gigantic on soul and heart, due to its AWD was able to handle the icy and slippery conditions with pride and ease. Neighbors have all come to gawk at the Buick due to its size, and, like the commercials, don’t believe it can be a Buick. On TV it does look tiny, but in person it’s just the right size and the level of luxury apparent and unapparent, is shocking to most people. For me, one who swore to never own a new car, this has been one of the most pleasurable purchasing experiences I’ve ever had. Buick has been on hand via email and other communications quite frequently to provide whatever needed assistance one might need. Thank you Buick for restoring my faith in your company. While I am a single person, this car is perfect for me. A family of four or more older adults however may struggle with there being enough room to be truly comfortable for any long distance travel. That being said, you would probably not take a small car for that anyway. There is plenty of room though for 4 for an outing of sorts. Trunk space is what you would expect from a car this size. If you want tons of trunk space, well, look elsewhere. There is room enough for I’d say 8 fully loaded paper grocery bags (not counting the back seats). Again, that being said, the back seats do let down creating a cavernous amount of interior storage space if necessary. Also, those of you who do have this car, there is a neat little storage drawer under the passenger seat. Who knew? Buick has made every stride imaginable to make this car something to behold. For those of us of a particular age, you remember Buick as another Cadillacish type of car. Not anymore. This Buick stands on its own as an answer to those of us who no longer want to climb in and out of our ground based sedan, or drag out a step ladder to get in and out of an enormous SUV, or stop by the gas station every other day for our normal commuting. This Buick provides me with a Brand New vehicle, featuring the safety, modern look and feel of todays SUVs with all of the conveniences and ease of driving a much smaller package.

Really loving the Encore by MsHTX from Houston, TX on Fri Jan 04 2019

I am just loving this car. It’s perfect for the city and offers a lot of value for the money. Many of its standard features are not standard in Euro and Japanese brands. Quiet ride, good handling and more room than I thought. I always thought of Buick as a grandma car, but I have been proved wrong.
