The 2019 Buick Encore is the latest compact SUV crossover from the leading brand in comfort and reliability. For generations, families have been driving Buicks, and Buicks have been especially loved by retirees. Now Buick is expanding its reach across demographics with modern designs that still exude the class of a Buick. The 2019 Buick Encore is right there with the best of the compact SUVs on the market and loaded with up-to-date features such as satellite radio, OnStar safety and security, and a Lane Departure Warning system.
One of the more appealing aspects of the exterior of the 2019 Buick Encore is the sleek but masculine contour from the front to the back. It creates the feeling that the Encore wants to drive forward and it can make this statement without even moving. The subtle curve of the door panels meets nicely with the rear wheel wells making for about as close to the look of a sedan as a crossover is capable of.
The tall profile of the body means lots of room for the suspension to compress and you won’t have to worry about scraping curbs with the bumper. This great crossover SUV offers sporty performance combined with a classy level of comfort that you just can’t find in other crossovers today.
The 2019 Buick Encore comes in a Base model, a Preferred model, a Sport Touring model, and an Essence model. Each trim comes with a 1.4L four-cylinder turbo engine. The Encore starts at around $23,200 and goes up to around $32,000.
With the Base model, you get standard features such as LED-accented tail lamps and enhanced 4.2-inch driver information center. Intelligent all-wheel drive is available for the Encore’s 138-horsepower 1.4L turbo engine. The shorter wheelbase makes for an excellent turning radius and nimble handling on the road.
With the Preferred model of the 2019 Buick Encore, you get a keyless open and push-button start, and both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support. Stepping up to the Sport Touring gets you exclusive 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels, an exclusive rear integrated sports spoiler, and fog lamps.
At the top of the class is the Essence that offers leather-appointed seating, rear cross traffic alerts, heated driver and front passenger seats, the StabiliTrak electronic stability control system, and a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel.
Each of the 2019 Buick Encore models can be purchased with a four-wheel drive and comes with a six-speed transmission. There are 18.8 cubic feet of room in the rear compartment and 48 cubic feet with the rear seats down.
