Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 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 41 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

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

Cons
Underpowered base engine
Higher base price than rivals

By: 
usnews.com

Its interior is comfortable, well designed, and more premium than most of its rivals, but it never quite reaches full-luxury levels of comfort.An ionizing interior air cleaner enhances the Encore’s climate-control system, HD radio joins the list of features in the infotainment arena, and last year’s gas cap is ditched in favor of a capless fuel-filling system. A coppery-gold hue called Coppertino Metallic is also new for 2018.

Pros
Intuitive and holistic infotainment suite,
premium interior,
comfortable ride.

Cons
Disappointing fuel economy,
slightly gawky proportions,
limited active safety features.

By:

The 2018 Buick Encore does the pint-size crossover thing well, although it lacks some safety tech and gets pricey with options.

Pros
Refined interior
Pint-sized dimensions
Good ride quality
Attractive styling inside and out

Cons
Cramped inside
Underpowered base engine
Pricey with options
Lacks some safety tech

DS7 Crossback will be the brand’s largest SUV This flagship model will boast bold styling and high-tech kit New DS Pilot autonomous driving features will be offered Advanced suspension promises excellent refinement.
The DS7 Crossback’s bold, angular styling should come as no great surprise considering DS’ extensive back catalogue of wild concept cars. From the intricate headlights with swivelling LED modules to its vast chrome-framed grille, this new car makes every attempt to stand out from the usual sea of restrained, business-like SUVs.

DS promises a luxurious interior and generous standard kit for the 7 Crossback. On the exterior, it has a large, stylish front grille, wide air intakes and LED lights, all of which help to give the car an aggressive, sporty look, while it's full of tech inside, with a 12.0in infotainment touchscreen and a customisable digital instrument display. It should be practical, too, with seats for five with the promise of good head and leg room and a large boot.
DS is a very new name to the car industry, having been launched as Citroën's premium sister brand two years ago. Until now, though, it has only sold cars that were previously badged as Citroëns, so this mid-sized SUV will be the first true DS car.
