Buick encore Perfect size for everything we want to do Classy and fun.

This is just the right size for us to use around town for errands, dinner, visiting and church. There is plenty of room for everything when we go on vacation. It's just the perfect size for anything we want to do. It has the luxury of a Buick and drives exceptionally well. The turn radius makes it perfect to fit in small or difficult spaces. Plus we moved up to a Buick as both of our parents did. But this is a trendy, super nice vehicle but not our parents. So very nice and lots of fun to drive and travel in it. We love our new Buick - for the young or young at heart.

Nice little SUV, good gas mileage.

Great little SUV. Gets 30-34 mpg which is great. Pretty small though. My 2 kids in car seats are a tight fit. Storage in back is small can't fit a double stroller. AWD does great in the winter. Looks nice. Has keyless engine which is new to me but works fine. Just have to remember where I out my keys when I want to lock it. Nice little SUV. My next SUV will be bigger as I miss the storage capability especially in the back. Going to Costco is a challenge. No CD player but it does have Bluetooth which is very convenient to talk and drive. Sound is very clear.

My encore provides a hanging cover in the hatch.

My car is spectacular for a single individual. It is a small 4 door mini SUV. The encore is very comfortable, with heated seat and dual control air. The gas mileage is awesome, especially for road trips. I live in Oklahoma and have driven it to Atlanta and Alabama. The hatch storage is very small, so you cannot carry a lot of things. The back seats lay down which helps being able to carry more on road trips. The back seat is not very spacious, so it is hard for large adults to ride in the back. Overall I absolutely love my encore.
