Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive

Driving an Encore is a pleasure. The standard engine strains to get the Encore underway, but the 153-horsepower version provides more appropriate vigor. Passing on two-lane roads and merging onto expressway is significantly easier.

Buick’s automatic transmission tends to upshift too soon. With the milder engine, in particular, accelerating at even a modest pace typically requires more than one downshift.

Despite relatively large wheels and a short wheelbase, the Encore delivers impressive ride comfort. Urban potholes and other trouble spots produce a little choppiness, but less than expected in such a small vehicle. Electric power steering does its job well, too.

Unlike some competitors, operation of Buick’s automatic Stop/Start system is barely noticeable. When accelerating hard, though, either engine emits troublesome booming noise. Optional all-wheel drive not only improves traction, but improves ride quality.

Fuel economy is about average: less thrifty than expected. With the base engine and front-drive, the 2016 Encore was EPA-rated at 25/33 mpg City/Highway, or 28 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive drops the estimate to 23/30 mpg City/Highway, or 26 mpg Combined. With the optional engine, a front-drive model is EPA-rated at 28/34 mpg City/Highway, versus 26/32 mpg City/Highway with all-wheel drive.

Walk Around

New Car Test Drive

The Encore is as much small hatchback as it is crossover SUV.

Revisions for 2017 give the front end a more appealing appearance. LED headlights and the hood has a cleaner look, while the latest grille abandons the previous waterfall-style bars, substituting a wing-shaped chrome strip. Portholes are gone, and the hood has a single line down its center. Lower air intakes aren’t as prominent now.

The rear half of the Encore looks less jaunty and more traditional than the front. An S-shaped curve extends through each door panel. A spoiler atop the tailgate extends the roofline slightly.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive

Despite its small size, with a cabin that feels narrow, space is fairly generous. Adding the new touchscreen for 2017 made the control layout more user-friendly, and the interior seems less cluttered.

Soft-touch surfaces and metal trim help impart an upscale, premium feel, complementing the comfortable seats. Active noise cancellation helps keep engine sounds in check, but some tire and wind noise enters the cabin. Still, the cabin stays way calmer than a typical subcompact.

Up front, passengers might feel a bit fenced-in by the narrow interior, but the driver gets a fine position, enjoying a commanding view past the short front end. A low dashboard and tall roof boost the sense of spaciousness, even though shoulder room is lacking and the wide central console might contact passenger knees.

Front seats are comfortable, helped by nicely shaped seatbacks, though bottom cushions are a bit short on support. The back seat can readily hold two adults, but a third is basically out of the question. Knee room is passable, helped by modest depressions formed in the front seatbacks. A folding armrest contains cupholders. Folding the back seat expands cargo capacity from 18.8 to nearly 50 cubic feet.


New Car Test Drive

Buick was something of a trailblazer when first introducing the Encore, which still doesn’t feel quite like a typical Buick. Well-equipped, with a quiet cabin, the Encore boasts some luxury-vehicle features, and is priced at premium level for its category. An attractive-looking small crossover/hatchback, the Encore promises substantially greater driving satisfaction with the more powerful optional engine.
