Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The X2 launched as a 2019 model and, this being only its sophomore year, BMW hasn't changed much for 2020. Last year's standard 6.5-inch infotainment display has been ditched in favor of the formerly optional 8.8-inch unit; navigation is now also standard across the X2 lineup. Otherwise, the X2 carries on essentially unchanged.

Pros
Playful handling,
chic exterior styling,
economical at the pump.

Cons
Too-harsh ride,
interior design is plain,
compromised cargo space.

The 2020 BMW X2 comes with all wheel drive, and front wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 8-speed shiftable automatic.8.8-inch touchscreen now standard.Package content has been shuffled slightly.

Pros
Unique styling differentiates the X2 from the more traditional X1
Materials quality and build quality are top-notch
Quick acceleration and sporty handling

Cons
Less rear headroom and cargo space than the X1
Ride is overly stiff for a luxury vehicle
Grabby brakes make it hard to stop smoothly in traffic
Disappointing smartphone integration

The 2017 Buick Encore reaches for the compact-luxury stars, but it falls shy on styling and front-seat space.When it was new in 2013, the Buick Encore was virtually alone on the automotive landscape as one of few small crossover SUVs. Today, that's a crowded niche, with pricey and prestigious rivals like the BMW X1, Mercedes-Benz GLA, and Audi Q3 as numerous as the more affordable ones (Trax, Renegade, 500X, CX-3, and HR-V).
A 2017 update aims to keep it competitive. Most noticeable is the new front end, but the updated interior, complete with an 8.0-inch touchscreen and Apple Car Play and Android Auto, make it easier to live with on a daily basis.

Pros
Quiet, calm interior
Well-equipped
Back seat fits adults
Two-tone trim is tony
Cargo space is ample

Cons
Base engine's sluggish acceleration
Mediocre gas mileage
Cabin feels narrow
Are hatchbacks luxury shapes?

By:

A quiet cabin, user-friendly technology and city-friendly compact size make the 2017 Buick Encore worth a look if more conventional crossover SUVs simply seem too large. Modest performance and tight quarters limit the Encore's appeal, however.

Pros
Quiet interior on the highway
Excellent crash-test scores
Small engines deliver solid fuel economy
Long list of tech and safety features.

Cons
Tepid performance from base engine
Small cargo area can't swallow much luggage.

The 2017 Buick Encore ranks 3 out of 12 Subcompact SUVs. The 2017 Buick Encore is ranked highly among subcompact SUVs because it does what you want – and does it well. Its small footprint gives you excellent maneuverability, yet its spacious interior provides enough room for you, your friends, and their stuff, all wrapped in a classy, upscale package.

Pros
User-friendly technology
Generous list of standard features
Luxurious interior

Cons
Underpowered base engine
Narrow rear seats
