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:

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
