What’s New?

The 2016 Encore is maneuverable and well-finished, with a fuel economy that is impressive and at an enticing price. The vehicle’s whisper-quiet interior makes the drive of the car great; there’s “active” noise cancellation system which negates road noise effectively. The car has a lightweight body that enhances its powertrain performance.

Exterior Design

Since its inception Buick has had its classic waterfall grille and painted body panels, the 2016 Buirk Encore puts a contemporary spin to all these elements, thus creating a package that skews towards a more progressive and youthful mindset. The vehicle’s tasteful collection of bright accents and the highly sculpted bodywork are all set off by LED infused headlights and prominent blue accented projector beam headlights. The 18″ wheel fitment and the brushed aluminum faux rear and front skid plates give the vehicle a more aggressive flair too.
