Small luxury crossovers are hot, but the 2019 Buick Encore offers a decidedly calm option. It's cute and affordable, but lacks some options found on others.

Pros
Refined ride
Compact size
Quality interior and trim
Attractive styling

Cons
Narrow, cramped interior
Underpowered base engine
Lacks standard safety tech
Price rises quickly with options
