The Encore is a small five-passenger, entry-level luxury SUV from Buick. At just 168 inches long outside, the Encore has a passenger compartment that is roughly equivalent to that of their smallest sedan, the Verano. Compared to other small SUVs, the Encore is a notch down in size from popular models like the Honda CR-V or Ford Escape. Power is provided by a small 1.4l turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Buick offers both FWD and AWD models with a six-speed automatic transmission standard. As an entry-level luxury vehicle, the Encore's feature list includes optional leather seating, a power-operated driver's seat, dual-zone climate control, and a Bose sound system. The Encore also includes an active noise cancellation system to help quiet the ride.
