Buick has been fighting against a reputation of numb, floaty vehicles for years. With the Encore GX, we expected more of the same. But with terrific ride quality, good insulation, terrific tech, and a curious little engine, we walked away from the Encore GX pleasantly surprised.

The engine in this little Buick is a 1.3-liter three-cylinder making 155 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque. And that’s the upgraded engine! The standard unit is a 1.2-liter three-cylinder with 137 hp and 162 lb-ft. While it’s good around town, revving the three-cylinder results in a buzzy, noisy note.

Inside, most of the materials above the waistline are of good quality. The greenhouse is big and bright and easy to see out of. However, below the waistline, you’ll find plenty of cheap, hard plastic. In the rear, the seats are comfortable and supportive, with enough legroom for an adult.

Buick’s infotainment system, like most GM units, is terrific. Easy to understand and use, it features big icons and crisp graphics. Navigation works well, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both supported.

The kicker with the Encore GX is its price tag. Very little comes standard, and when kitted out like our test car, you can expect to pay over $35,000. That’s too much for a car of this size. Especially when you look at the competition: the Mazda CX-30, Kia Seltos, Hyundai Kona, and Jeep Compass all over similar dimensions and features at thousands of dollars less.

For the latest Buick Encore pricing and information:

What is a Buick Encore GX?

From a mechanical perspective, there’s either a 1.2-liter engine (137hp, 162 lb-ft) linked to a continuously variable transmission, while higher trims can be optioned with a 1.3-liter engine (155hp, 174 lb-ft). Both engines have 3-cylinders and are turbocharged, which is good because those are tiny displacement figures. In addition to being more powerful, the 1.3-liter is also…somehow…more efficient than the 1.2-liter. (1.2L FWD 26 city/30 hwy, 1.3L FWD 30 city/32 hwy) It’s witchcraft!! It’s also only a $400 option offered on all trims and it comes with a 9-speed automatic instead of a continuously variable transmission, so yeah, just get the 1.3-liter.

Our test vehicle has the 1.3-liter and it’s ok. The maximum thrust is merely adequate, and the engine doesn’t sound happy when exploiting its potential. Around town, the accelerator requires assertive prodding to get the Encore GX moving and power delivery is surging and inconsistent.

Back in motion, Buick’s “quiet tuning” philosophy has yielded impressively silent results for many of its vehicles but in the case of the Encore GX, I’m not blown away with solitude thanks in part to that raspy 3-cylinder growl and some odd buzzes and rattles that plagued our car’s cabin.

I’m also not blown away by ride quality. Buick’s tend to move with a smooth velvety quality but I’m feeling a fair bit of road chatter.

To be fair, I’ve driven harsher riding SUVs but a bit more refinement would be nice from a premium offering. And no, the GX’s rough edges don’t mean it’s a blast to steer.
Around corners…it’s fine.

For a small SUV, interior space is quite good. The rear seats do not recline but their static angle is comfortable and for an average 5’ 10” dude like myself, I fit great in the back. As for cargo space, there’s a healthy 23.5 cu-ft with the rear seats raised. Drop them to more than double that figure and hey, this is a neat trick. The optional 8-way power front seat folds flat for hauling long gear. Time to take up surfing. For smaller items, there’s storage in the doors and in this 2-tier center console. Though it’d be nice if the upper-tier were attached to the lid.

Inside you’ll find plenty of soft materials, plus my favorite fake indulgence, embossed stitching on the dash. As always, the fake stuff really stands out when packaged with actual stitching. I’ll also note that the metallic trim is absolutely blinding at certain sun angles.

Nothing in here is going to blow your mind but it’s certainly nicer than your basic sub-compact.

An 8-inch infotainment screen comes standard and also offers easy access to standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto phone connectivity, plus an optional 360-degree camera system with more views than I know what to do with. On a quick superficial note, it’s remarkable how many styling lines converge between the wheels.

But my wife thinks the Encore GX is “super cute”. If you agree, leave a comment. And while you’re at it, why not subscribe to Kelley Blue Book’s YouTube channel?

This particular car has the $650 Sport Touring package, which adds no real performance but does look sportier via unique bumpers and rocker moldings, the aforementioned 18-inch wheels, and this nifty grille with its subtle red motif.

Choose a base, front-wheel drive, Preferred trim, and the MSRP with destination charges lands around $25,000. That sum gets you 18-inch wheels, keyless access with pushbutton start, automatic emergency braking, and lane-keeping assist. Front-wheel drive comes standard but if you’d like to add all-wheel drive tack on another $2,000.

Choose the fanciest and ironically titled “Essence” Trim and you can enjoy LED head and taillights, a leather-clad interior, and blind-spot warning, starting around $29,500. Given its modest $900 premium, we think the roomier and more powerful Encore GX is a smart alternative to the smaller Buick Encore.

Compared to luxury subcompact SUVs like the BMW X1 and Audi Q3, the Encore GX slots well below them price-wise. Then again, the Encore GX doesn’t really compete with the Germans. It’s more “premium” than a luxury.

For my money, the Mazda CX-30 offers a more premium experience and more satisfying road manners than the Buick for thousands less. You could also use your Encore GX budget to buy a mainstream compact SUV (Subaru Forester, Toyota RAV4, Ford Escape), which would get you more room and more power for the same money.

With so many compelling alternatives I’m not sure I’d throw my money at the Buick Encore GX. But if you can find an amazing deal on one, it might be worth a look.

Buick’s best-selling model isn’t a cushy sedan or a huge crossover. It’s the Encore, a small, upright subcompact that gives a lot of what buyers look for in crossovers – all-wheel drive, high seating position – without the cost, fuel consumption, or size of larger models. Though based on the Chevy Trax, the Encore is, as befits a Buick, a notable step up in terms of luxury.

Refreshed at the 2016 New York Auto Show, the Encore packs lots of style, comfort, quietness, and equipment into its small body. It’s also still affordable, and gets reasonably healthy fuel-economy numbers on the highway. But that small body might leave some shoppers wishing for extra cargo room or a more capacious back seat. Find out how all of that works as we put the 2017 Buick Encore to the test in our latest Why Buy?

Designed and built in Germany, the 2019 #Buick #RegalGS is everything you’d not expect from a Buick here in America. It’s a practical hatchback, offers quick and precise steering, has a taut suspension and sporty handling, and looks NOTHING like the #Regal of choice from our grandparents. Add in standard AWD, a sweet sounding 3.6L 310 HP V6, and a design that is a lot more interesting from all the Japanese offerings and buyers looking for a more unique option in the sport sedan segment should strongly consider adding a #GS to your short list.

With a name like Envision, Buick’s compact SUV might make you think of bold forward thinking design or advanced technology. Designed in China, KBB’s Lyn Woodward takes a look at this American car company’s offering that lands between their larger Enclave and the sub-compact Encore. Does the Envision live up to its name?

As #Buick continues to try and reinvent their image here in America, buyers can really find themselves somewhat confused if they visit a Buick showroom. On one of the spectrum, you’ve got a pretty nice sport sedan in the form of the Regal GS, while at the other end, their best-selling model, the #BuickEnclave is every bit a modern interpretation of what you’d expect from Buick. Its cushy ride, relaxed steering, quiet cabin, and bloated proportions make the 2019 #EnclaveAvenir feel like the modern day Buick Roadmaster driven by a much older generation. It loses ground to new entries from Kia, Volkswagen, and Subaru in the luxury department, and its shocking as tested price near $60,000 will make you question its value when modern driver aids are still optional, even on this pricey #Avenir trim level.

The Buick Encore is a little chip off the old Enclave block. With its wee proportions and singluar looks the Encore hopes to stand out in a very crowded field of mini luxury crossovers. So, how does it fare? Kelley Blue Book’s Lyn Woodward takes a drive to see if she can answer that question.

For the latest Buick Encore pricing and information:

For years, Buick has been hard at work trying to inject a healthy dosage of youth into the brand. It all started with the hot-selling Encore 5 years ago and although sales of their crossovers have been strong, sedans continue to grow less popular in America. Which is why Buick is hoping to inject a bit more fire into their flagship Lacrosse sedan for 2018. The Avenir trim adds unique styling elements, higher quality leather, and additional standard tech and luxury equipment all while undercutting its main rival, the ES 350 from Lexus. While the Lacrosse may not attract that younger demographic that Buick wants, will this new trim alienate their traditional buyer?

Buick’s 2019 Enclave is a seven-passenger SUV that aims for those family-hauler shoppers with premium taste looking for the lux life. Completely redesigned inside and out, with new tech and safety features, improved cargo space, the Enclave is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 with a 9-speed automatic transmission. But does all that add up to American luxury? Micah Muzio of Kelley Blue Book will let you know at the end of this video.

For the latest Buick Enclave pricing and information:

If you’re tired of seeing so many SUV’s, feast your eyes on the newest addition to the Buick lineup. With a wagon back in the portfolio, Buick continues its assault to completely change their image in the US. With a standard 250hp turbo engine, a smooth shifting 8-speed automatic, and a standard twin-clutch AWD system, the 2018 Regal TourX will no doubt bring in some new buyers into Buick showrooms. Its handsome looks and large cargo capacity should seal the deal for the majority of buyers who wouldn’t be caught dead in a crossover.
