Buick offers two Encore models. The smaller of the two is simply called the Encore, while the larger is known as the Encore GX. Introduced in 2013, the tiny Encore SUV was among the first subcompact crossovers to go on sale in the U.S. and proved to be an unexpected hit for Buick. Fuel-efficient and maneuverable, the Encore is easy to park on crowded city streets while still supplying the added utility and convenience that make SUVs appealing. In addition, a turbocharged engine provides decent acceleration, and the Encore offers a higher driving position with easier entry and exit than a sedan.
