Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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.

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

As a company car proposition, the Suzuki Across stacks up well; its low emissions bring low tax bills, and its very good all-electric range and punchy performance sweeten the deal. But an extremely high list price narrows its appeal among private buyers; cheaper alternatives are better to drive, more comfortable, and nicer inside.

PROS
Low official CO2 emissions
Punchy performance
Long electric-only range

CONS
Very expensive
Poor infotainment system
Rivals are better to drive

PROS
Smooth and powerful drive
