The Encore is Buick's new compact SUV that is based on the Chevrolet Sonic. It's powered by a 138-hp, 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. Optional safety features include forward collision and lane departure warnings, front and rear park assist, and a rear backup camera. Available electronic features include voice activated Intellilink, which uses Bluetooth or USB to connect a user's smartphone to a seven-inch audio display. The Encore's tight, narrow cabin is a bit of a departure for Buick.
