2017 Buick Encore new car reviews

2017 will be the last year for the Buick Encore, the tiny crossover is powered by a 1.4-liter engine that creates 138 horsepower. It's small but well appointed and has space for a driver and three passengers. If you thought to yourself that this doesn't exactly look like a Buick, you would be right. The Encore is a disguised Opel Mokka.

The Buick Encore is about as average as it gets. It has decent cargo room for its size, which is small. It's not fast by any means, but it moves well for a 3200-pound car powered by a 1.4-liter engine.

It actually has fine daily driver manners. It's nimble and visibility is good. Also, it's worth noting that its turning radius is impressively small for a crossover.

If I lived in the city and needed something with a good utility factor, I'd look hard into choosing an Encore.
