The Encore's available trims have been downsized to the base and Preferred models for 2021. With the exception of adding Dark Moon Blue Metallic and Cinnabar Metallic exterior colors, Buick hasn't made any changes to its smallest SUV.

Pros
Smooth ride,
intuitive infotainment setup,
surprisingly spacious cabin.

Cons
Not as fuel efficient as key rivals,
lacks standard safety tech,
just plain slow.

Simplified trim lineup. Improved suite of driver safety aids.

Pros
Hushed cabin at highway speeds
Maneuverable size

Cons
Tepid acceleration
Limited feature availability
Small cargo area
Unimpressive fuel economy

By:

PROS
Seriously sorted chassis
Determined three-cylinder engine
Excellent interior technology

CONS
Cramped rear seats
Getting expensive for a small SUV
We don't get the ST

By: 
carexpert.com.au

PROS
Fast, terrific dynamics, extremely well-engineered.

CONS
Ride can be a little uncompromising, sub-optimal fuel consumption if you use the performance.

Not only is the Ford Puma ST one of the most exciting SUVs we’ve ever driven, it’s also immensely practical, comes packed with equipment and undercuts all of its main rivals on price. In other words, the Puma ST is a classic performance car from Ford: fast, fun and fantastic value, making it our favourite Sports SUV.

PROS
Immensely enjoyable to drive
Surprisingly big boot
Great driving position

CONS
Occasionally bouncy low-speed ride
Infotainment could be slicker
A VW T-Roc is bigger in the back
