2017 Buick Encore Review

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - The Buick Encore was an early entrant into what has become a crowded and highly competitive subcompact luxury crossover segment.

SUV Review: 2017 Buick Envision

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - Those of who who value ride comfort and cabin hush over Nürburgring bragging rights, fear not. The 2017 Buick Envision compact crossover that slides in between the subcompact Encore and full size Enclave, has old-school Buick written all over it.

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - It fills in Buick’s lineup between the smaller Encore and larger Enclave, but we’d forgive you if you weren’t able to envision the Buick Envision.

Improvements make the Buick Encore competitive

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - An update this year gives Encore a fresher look inside and out. The exterior features a revised front end complete with a new grille that ditches the classic Buick waterfall and goes for a stylized, chrome winged look. The LED headlights are narrower and are topped by a less fussy hood design. The rear doesn’t have the elegant look of the nose. Overall, Encore incorporates some of Buick’s new styling cues, but on the hatchback body style they conspire to give Encore a short, portly look.
