The 2019 Buick Encore ranked #3 in Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Buick Encore has a score of 8.2 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 37 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Nice interior with lots of standard features
User-friendly infotainment system
Nimble handling

Cons
Underpowered base engine
Higher base price than rivals

By:

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.

By:

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: 
edmunds.com

After Nissan made several driver assists standard and added some new packages for the previous model year, the 2020 Rogue carries over unchanged. However, every model does receive a small price increase and the hybrid powertrain has been discontinued.

Pros
Quiet and comfortable interior, fuel-efficient powertrains, capacious cargo space.

Cons
Far more show than go, dull to drive, obsolete infotainment with limited connectivity.

By: 
caranddriver.com

No significant changes for 2020

PROS
Comfortable seats and ride quality
Many advanced safety aids come standard
Roomy cabin and cargo area

CONS
Acceleration is weak and listless
Small, dated-looking infotainment screen
