Drivers in Mansfield, Norton, and Attleboro can find out more about the Encore with this comprehensive 2021 Buick Encore review from Station Buick GMC.


Encore Performance

The Encore comes with a 138-horsepower turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers reliable power and rapid acceleration. This engine pairs with a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, but it also offers all-wheel drive as an option.

No matter the road surface, the Encore handles itself with composure and offers a comfortable, cushioned ride for passengers. It's also highly maneuverable and a dream to drive on crowded streets or busy parking lots. The ride is engaging and fun, especially on curvy back roads. This is all backed by strong, reliable brakes. It also gets great gas mileage with a fuel economy of 25 city/30 highway MPG.


Encore Interior

The Encore has space for five people in comfortable, heavily bolstered seats. Both front and rear seats offer an abundance of headroom and legroom for passengers to stretch out and relax. Outward visibility is excellent in all directions, giving the cabin an airy, open feel. QuietTuning active noise cancellation is standard for a whisper-quiet ride. Other notable features include available remote start, push-button start, and proximity keyless entry.

With the seats up, the Encore offers 18.8 cubic feet of space in the cargo hold. With the seats folded down, space expands to 48.4 cubic feet of space, which is one of the better capacities in the class. Another option is folding the front passenger seat flat forward to stow longer cargo. The cabin has several small storage spaces for passengers to put keys, wallets, and cell phones for safekeeping on the ride.


Encore Technology

The Encore comes with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system that features a straightforward menu, large icons, and responsive inputs. Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ smartphone compatibility give you endless opportunities for entertainment and connectivity on the road with your phone's apps and media. Satellite radio, Bluetooth connectivity, USB ports, and voice recognition are also standard, giving you more convenience and entertainment options. Siri Eyes Free is included, which connects to your phone for information and access on the go.

Several safety features are optional for the Encore, including rain-sensing windshield wipers and front and rear parking sensors. Lane departure warning is also available, which alerts you if you drift out of your lane on the highway. Another option is a forward collision warning, a feature that warns you of potential frontal collisions. Blind-spot monitoring is optional, which alerts you if you're changing lanes or reversing and a vehicle is in your path.
