Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Even though it sits at the small end of the Volvo lineup, the XC40 offers much of what makes the brand's larger SUVs so desirable.

Pros
Bold and boxy exterior,
practical but stylish cabin,
generous standard features.

Cons
Unrefined powertrains,
so-so fuel economy,
laggy infotainment display.

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.
