Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For its second year on the market, the Encore GX receives only a few small updates. Both SiriusXM satellite radio and wireless connectivity for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto have become standard features across the lineup, and adaptive cruise control is now available on the Preferred model as part of the optional Safety package.

Pros
Attractive exterior design,
SUV practicality,
good value compared to luxury-branded rivals.

Cons
Too many plasticky interior parts,
inadequate three-cylinder powertrains,
unexciting to drive.

Wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. Satellite radio now standard. Part of the first Encore GX generation introduced for 2020.

Pros
Appealing design both inside and out
Comfortable ride quality
Desirable infotainment and driving assistance tech is standard
Lots of space for passengers and cargo

Cons
Front seats are narrow and don't fit a variety of body types
Thick roof pillars reduce rear visibility
Ho-hum handling
