Drivers shopping for a small yet versatile crossover SUV that features luxury touches at an affordable price have got to see the new Buick Encore. Buick's 2017 Encore may feature a small footprint, but it is big on cabin space, versatility and value. This 5-passenger small crossover delivers refinement, technology and convenience features in true Buick fashion, which means its price tag is less than you might expect.
With the 2017 Buick Encore subcompact crossover, Buick delivers a highly efficient and fun to drive vehicle with the versatility of a larger vehicle. Every new Encore comes equipped with a fuel-sipping 1.4-liter turbocharged ECOTEC engine, connected to a 6-speed automatic transmission with overdrive and Driver Shift Control. The potent 1.4-liter turbo engine propels the Encore with a capable 138 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque. With variable valve timing and sequential multi-port fuel injection, the Encore's turbo engine helps this sporty little crossover achieve an impressive highway fuel economy rating -- especially when paired with standard front-wheel drive (FWD). For added traction and confidence in any road conditions, the available AWD system is ready to shift into action. Buick's advanced AWD system features smart technology that allows it to automatically switch back to FWD to maximize efficiency when power is not needed at all four wheels. You will be surprised how much fun this peppy and fuel-efficient subcompact crossover is to drive, so get behind the wheel today!
Featuring comfortable seating for up to five passengers and a maximum cargo capacity of more than 48 cubic feet, the 2017 Buick Encore is surprisingly roomy and versatile considering its small footprint. Even with all five seats in the upright position, there are over 18 cubic feet of cargo space in the rear hatch area -- which is more than any mid-size sedan! Standard cabin amenities on the 2017 Encore CUV include features like a Buick IntelliLink AM/FM/CD/SiriusXM Satellite Radio audio system, OnStar with 4G LTE Wi-Fi, Rear Vision Camera, flat-folding front passenger seatback, a rear 60/40 split-bench seat and ten airbags. Navigation and 7-speaker Bose premium sound system are also available, as are driver assist technologies like Forward Collision Alert, Front and Rear Park Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Side Blind Zone Alert and Lane Departure Warning.
For 2017, the Buick Encore is available in five nicely equipped models or trim levels, including the Encore Group, Convenience Group, Leather Group, Premium Group and Sport Touring Group. Every trim level is offered in both FWD and AWD drivetrain configurations. Filling the void fo entry-level luxury subcompact crossovers on the market today, the 2017 Encore is packed with many features that cannot be had on any other vehicle in its class. Drivers and passengers will find that the 2017 Encore drives and rides like a luxury vehicle, thanks to its 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels, acoustic laminated glass and Buick-exclusive QuietTuning noise-reduction technology.
