Among the recent day car trend, the smaller sized luxury crossovers are increasing in popularity, as they combine the comfort of luxury cars and the toughness of the SUVs. The 2019 Buick Encore is one such example that decidedly offers the same option in its own cute way of making things. It is an affordable option for the mass, carving a good amount of space as a crossover giving way to a tougher competition to its class this year.
To check this model from Buick, I searched on the web for the best San Diego Buick dealer near me, and the 2019 Encore topped the search results with its available in trims like Base, Preferred, Sport Touring, Preferred II, Essence, and Premium. Reaching the dealership I came to know that all of them are available in front-and all-wheel-drive configurations.
The 2019 Buick Encore carries a styling that bends more towards SUV like pattern that confirms the same when we look at the features it has acquired.
Though smaller in size, the design of the Buick Encore carries with it all the classic elements of SUV styling, that gets immediately noticed through its squared-off roofline and hood with a flight of sidesteps with the shape of a wedge that are typical of SUVs. The front grille are toned down this year to align perfectly with the latest subdued styling of the brand taking a more modern approach.
Interior Accommodation and Convenience
Inside, the 2019 Buick Encore offers plenty of goodies to earn your appreciation especially from those who love SUVs. There is this 8-inch touchscreen display mounted at a height at the center of the dash, right above the dual-zone climate controls. The entire unit is placed at an easily accessible distance. Even the Base trim of Encore, fits in latest features like, OnStar, satellite radio, and power features, while the higher you climb, you get more technological benefits and interior comforts like heated leather seats and an upgraded sound system.
In their 2019 Encore, Buick offers two options of engines. One is the 1.4-liter turbo-4 that is standard and a 1.4-liter turbo-4 with start/stop technology which is available when you want an upgrade on your own trim. All the trim models are given a 6-speed automatic transmission to match with their respective engine options.
Off Road Performance
The 2019 Buick Encore does accelerate well, but at a slower pace. It scores higher than most of its competitors for the refined ride it can offer. As heard at the Buick dealer serving San Diego, though slower than a few of its rivals, the ride in an Encore is unexceptionally smooth and composed. Thanks to its 18-inch wheels that never falters even while running over uneven terrains at highway speeds. Being the small crossover hatchback it is, the Encore handles every rough road surface with equal grace.
To round up the discussion we may say that the 2019 Buick Encore has included the typical sporty style of the conventional SUV like its thick-rimmed steering wheel, while it can also suit the purpose of an urban cruiser.
