2016 Buick Encore

The Small Luxury SUV designed for your next big adventure

Small SUVs offer the small family or single passenger driver with the design and aesthetics of the larger SUV, just on a smaller scale. Where the larger family may opt for the mid to full size SUV, it may not be necessary or practical for others to have such a large vehicle. The 2016 Buick Encore provides a small luxury SUV with the many of the capabilities of the mid to full size SUVs while at the same time delivering a design equipped for the smaller family or sole driver.


In designing a small luxury SUV, one of the challenges was to present a vehicle that mimicked the appearance of the full SUV without having the smaller vehicle appearing cramped. The 2016 Buick Encore has accomplished successful aesthetics in its exterior design. The curvature of the body gives the vehicle the an inviting appearance while the fascia of the vehicle presents the angular power and performance dynamics. Depending upon the trim selection that you chose, accents on the bumper and side panels may be available to further merge the sleekness with the boldness of the Encore. For those which want to have a bit more sunlight or moonlight, an available power moonroof is available.

Apart from the body of the exterior design, the 2016 Buick Encore has a large selection of exterior elements that help to boost the performance and driving experience. Available Rainsence wipers activate automatically at the detection of precipitation on the windshield, Roof-Rack Cross Rails allow for larger cargo to be transported safely and efficiently, Fof lamps increase the visibility, and available 18 inch chromed alloy wheels increase the curbside appearance of the vehicle.

When you visit your dealership, ask one of the professional team members to go over the trim and package options available to determine the look and performance enhancements available to meet your needs.


The 2016 Buick Encore comes equipped with a 2 wheel drive transmission powered by a 1.4L turbocharged engine. Although only 1.4L, the engine delivers a very competitive city and highway MPG as well as boasts of a high fuel efficiency. All wheel drive is available on some models and can help to increase the traction and stability of the vehicle in certain terrain conditions.

Interior Design and Technology

Touch screen monitors and LED navigational screens have become a prominent part of the interior design of the modern vehicle. Unlike competitor’s interiors, the 2016 Buick Encore has placed their touchscreen at eye level on the dash. This strategic placement allows the driver to have his or her eyes always on the road (where with other models the driver has to divert attention downward and away from the road). This screen can also be utilized with available navigational guidance to help you get to your next adventure. Additional features such as the button controls on the steering wheel further increase the driving experience. Bose speakers, USB ports, and material upgrades help to boost the driving experience while quiet technology has been engineered into the interior design to minimize exterior distractions and add serenity to the interior space.

Safety Features

One of the biggest misconceptions about small luxury vehicles is that due to the small size they are somehow not as safe. This is a complete fabrication. The 2016 Buick Encore has an overall 5 star safety score from the NHTSA and was recently awarded with the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety’s top safety pick.

The 2016 Buick Encore comes equipped with a 10 airbag system standard. Additional safety enhancements are available and include side blind zone alert systems to detect vehicles which are outside of the side mirror viewing area, Forward and rear collision alert systems which can display the warning on the front user heads up display, Lane departure warning system, and an available rear camera and cross traffic alert system.
