Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Encore GX, despite the familiar name, is an all-new model for Buick for 2020.Buick offers several attractive and comfortable crossovers, and the all-new Encore GX occupies the smaller end of that spectrum. The 2020 Buick Encore GX initially sounds as if it were a trim level that is offered on the subcompact Buick Encore, but it is actually its own, bigger model positioned below the compact Buick Envision. The Encore GX gives Buick another entry in the ever-popular crossover market, with its purposeful design and efficient packaging.

The 2020 Hyundai Tucson ranked #9 in Compact SUVs. Currently the Hyundai Tucson has a score of 7.7 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 27 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Relaxed ride
Good predicted reliability rating
Solid list of standard technology
Long warranty

Cons
Uninspiring engine options
Lower fuel economy estimates than rivals
Below-average cargo space

By: 
usnews.com

The 2019 received a wide range of updates, so the 2020 Tucson's changes are modest. Hyundai revamped the available colors for the exterior; a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob are standard on Sport trim levels and above.

Pros
Handsome exterior, straightforward dashboard design, agreeable driving demeanor.

Cons
Less cargo space than key rivals, mediocre fuel economy, powertrain warranty doesn't transfer to second owner.
