Elegant, comfy,affordable and drives smooth.

2016 Buick Encore Convenience

The vehicle I own is a Buick encore year 2016. It is blue with black trim and has a four cylinder engine. It gets about 35 miles a gallon on the highway and about 30 in the city. The design of the make alongside the color makes the car feel elegant. To fill up the tank completely with gas is about 30 bucks, which is nice for an SUV. The Buick encore gets almost 400 miles for a full tank of gas. I really like driving it compared to all other cars I have driven. It drives really smooth and the steering wheels feels good to turn. It has a very good turn radius for an SUV. The coolest feature is the built in backup camera that comes in handy. The interior is very comfy with more than enough room for me and my family. The only complaint most people have is the overall power of the engine. But believe me it's powerful enough.

Buick encore: the good vs the wishful summary.

2016 Buick Encore Sport Touring

I love my Buick encore. It has a smooth comfortable ride. I can't say enough how much the big view backup camera and the alerts on both side mirrors which detect cars in lanes next to me. Awesome gas mileage. Menu on large screen shows gas stations near me and other info about movies etc, comes in very handy. OnStar equipped with ability through an app to unlock doors if I accidentally lock my keys inside. Alert available if I crash to locate n report through paid subscription. Ability to Bluetooth and ability to subscribe to Wi-Fi. Downsides: not a lot of room if you have a big family but perfect for 2 when traveling. Only wish the crash alert was provided free of charge. And the OnStar & internet service for unlimited data was cheaper rate. (data is used up quickly).

Smaller, but reliable car.

2016 Buick Encore

I really like the comfort of the car. It drives really well and great on gas. It fits two car seat comfortably however, you can not for three car seat across. The back compartment is also small. It is hard to fit a stroller in the back without putting one of the seats down. My car is not a four wheel drive so it does not do the best in snow or other areas of driving. I also have a hard time seeing my blind spots as the structure of the car seems to be in the way. I bought the car on a impulse decision. It was pretty and in the middle of the showroom. It is a safe reliable car in my opinion as far as driving. I would just change some of the features. The air conditioning is really good. Cools off fast.
