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 2019 Chevrolet Trax makes a compelling used car alternative, but rivals do many things better.

Pros
Reasonable base price
Roomier inside than it looks
Optional AWD
New car smell

Cons
Lackluster to drive
Short on safety gear
Base LS model is truly plain
Anonymous styling
Expensive when loaded up

The 2019 Chevy Trax is available in three trim levels: LS, LT and Premier. The base LS trim has enough standard equipment not to feel stripped down, but the LT adds more practical features and has access to several option packages. The Premier trim not only gets interior upgrades, but it also has added active safety features.

Pros
Offers appealing passenger space for its size
Plenty of features for the price

Cons
Fuel economy falls short for the class
Less cargo space than some rivals
Slow acceleration from the underpowered engine
Ride quality is choppy on the freeway
