The model name Buick Encore has always been a favorite name in the segment of small crossover SUVs since the day of its first release.Thereafter with every yearly upgrade Buick has added more value to its flagship model Encore series, apart from the refinement of performance that makes it all the more appreciable. Users across the globe depicted their opinions on this Buick crossover and mostly they were unanimously positive.
The 2020 edition of Encore is now being recorded in the automotive market as one of the strongest-selling models that comes from Buick.From the press releases of Buick it is clear that the manufacturer has freshened up for the 2020 model year edition. And that was the right step for the brand to create its strong foothold in the oversaturated market of crossover SUVs.
When we asked a recent buyer of the 2020 Buick Encore at the showroom of Palmyra Buick dealer, about his overall opinion of this crossover model, and what made him buy it, he was excited to show us the reasons which we felt like worth sharing.
The Encore user we spoke to started with sharing a surprising factor that the first thing he liked about the 2020 year upgrades is that instead of increasing the lineup size, Buick chose to cut down on the number of trim levels. For this it has also dropped down the last found turbocharged engine. What remains in the 2020 year lineup of Buick Encore is the 1.4-liter turbocharged inline-4 engine that is less fuel guzzling. It was a drastic step taken by the automaker, but the customer appreciated the move that proved its environment conscious attitude.
This 1.4-liter turbocharged inline-4 engineis appreciated and preferred by a large number of buyers for its capacity to raise 138-horsepowerin combination with a 6 speed automatic transmission. So at present the entire lineup of 2020 Buick Encore stands in an ascending order of 1SV, Preferred, Sport Touring and Essence with increased refinement in user experience, since the added price amount buy them better quality materials, more options of fun drive and of course higher levels of creature comfort and safety guards. In this all the trims except for the base can be driven either with front- or all-wheel drive modes. The base can be driven only with the front wheels.
When it comes to user experience of any vehicle, what counts to be one of the major determining factors is how economical it is to own. In other words. For a vast number of users, if not all, mileage, or fuel efficiency matters.
As per the latest information we gathered from the users of the 2020 Buick Encore whom we met at the Palmyra Buick dealership, in this respect again, the 2020 Buick Encore leaves many of its rivals behind. With the above said powertrain the 2020 Buick Encore could manage to score 27 mpg from a combined trip of both city and highway speeds, when driven with the front-wheels. With all-wheel-drive configuration the score comes down to 26 mpg but adds more fun and thrill to the drive experience.
