2019 Buick Encore: Small in Stature, Big on Fun and Features

By Emily Eppley | June 17th, 2018

 

Who says elegant cars can’t also be sporty? The 2019 Buick Encore features a premium interior matched with a responsive, zippy engine that’s great for commuting or weekend getaways. The engineers created an agile and athletic driving experience that’s silky smooth thanks to advanced features like QuietTuning, StabiliTrak and optional all-wheel drive. Pocket-sized performance never looked so good.

The standard 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine produces 138 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque, giving the Encore energetic performance. And with standard front-wheel drive, the Encore delivers an EPA-estimated 25 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. You’ll also enjoy available start/stop technology to make the best use of your fuel on every trip.

If you’re looking for traction, choose the available intelligent all-wheel drive that monitors all four wheels and transfers power between them as needed. StabiliTrak electronic stability control further enhances your drive by monitoring the direction of the wheels and the steering wheel to make sure they match and correcting any differences by applying quick, precise force to the brakes.

Take on the unpredictable road ahead with an available suite of sophisticated safety features such as rear cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warning and rear park assist. The rearview camera’s dynamic turn lines help you guide your Encore almost parking space in the city. When you’re in reverse, the available rear cross-traffic alert lets you know if there’s a vehicle approaching from the left or right so you can back out with confidence. Blind-zone alert flashes a warning on the Encore’s side-view mirrors if it detects a vehicle in your blind zone during a lane change.

The safety continues with available forward collision alert that lets you know if you are risking a front-end collision or too close to the vehicle in front of you. Plus, the available lane-departure warning provides alerts to help you avoid crashes because of unintentional drifting, even if your turn signal isn’t activated. If an accident occurs, you can count on the automatic crash response, emergency services, and roadside assistance that’s available with an OnStar subscription.

This will all be at your fingertips from the comfort of the available leather seats. Available heated seats and steering wheel provide warmth on those chilly days. When the weather warms up, you can open the available power moonroof for extra air flow or kick on the available dual-zone climate control with available in-vehicle ionization system to make the air cleaner and fresher.
