Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Cadillac has made only a few minor changes to the XT4 for 2021, starting with the base Luxury trim, which receives a new standard power rear liftgate and the option of leather upholstery. An optional Driver Awareness package that includes automatic high-beam headlamps and lane-keeping assist has also been added to the Luxury trim.

Pros
Stylish exterior, handsome interior design, spacious cabin.

Cons
Down-market interior materials, rough ride, loud engine note.

Pros
Roomy seating and cargo area
Infotainment system is quick and sharp-looking

Lots of engine and road noise
Some controls are confusing to use
Luxury features you'd expect to be standard are optional

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.
