Buick Encore Specs
SUVs offer a lot of sought-after qualities, from space to upscale features. But sometimes, they can just be too big. This is why brands like Buick offer something much smaller than the usual SUV. Say hello to the 2016 Buick Encore - a compact crossover SUV. Along with its petite size, it delivers a quiet ride, good fuel economy, top crash scores, and a healthy list of user-friendly tech and safety features.
For a compact SUV that provides an upscale experience inside and out, the 2016 Buick Encore is a stand-out choice.
Luxury in All Five Trims
In true Buick fashion, the Encore shows off a 2016 lineup full of upscale content. Even consumers who opt for the entry-level Base trim will find a generous amount of items, especially high-tech features. The most notable items found in the Encore's Base trim, include:
- OnStar emergency communications system
- Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity
- 4G LTE WiFi hotspot
- Six-speaker sound system with CD player, satellite radio, USB port, media player interface and auxiliary audio jack
