There are no high expectations from 2021 Buick Encore since they have not planned to change it this or next year. It could be a problem since the last model’s redesign happened in 2017, while the basic shape and platform of it are made when the model had been designed in 2013. However, do not be so hard to Encore or manufacturer. It is a beautiful small subcompact crossover that could compete with great models in the class.
- The model is a small and beautiful city crossover.
- There is an economic engine under the hood.
- The cabin is too tight.
- There have not been changes in design for a long time.
There are no significant changes in the design of 2021 Buick Encore from the last change made in 2017. At that time, they have improved the size and design of the taillights and front lights, making them in LED technology this time. On the other hand, the model does not look old and too boring as we may expect.
They have achieved a beautiful and cute design of this small crossover, offering a model that could compete with Chevrolet Trax or Audi Q3. However, we do not expect significant changes in this model in the future. The class of subcompact crossovers usually do not change design so often, offering similar design and look every year, so Encore is not much different from that.
Although at first, glace interior in 2021 Buick Encore does not look much different from other models in class, it is beautiful and modern. With clean lines and not too many details, it is close to even luxury models in the class. The manufacturer has made a cabin to be protected from the noise and bunches on rough terrains.
If we know that they will upgrade current equipment, the model, and exceptionally high trims, will have great features. They will surely offer standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connection. The only problem could be tight space between the seats, especially in rear seats. However, recognizable Buick’s design should replace its small inconvenience.
2021 Buick Encore Engine
Although previous models had great powerful engine options, 2021 Buick Encore comes with only one model in offer. It is a small, functional, and economical 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine with an acceptable 153 horsepower.
Thanks to the front-wheel driving system, it represents the best option for daily usage in the city. However, in case that you are willing to use it in other situations, like rough terrains, you will be able to order the all-wheel-drive model, too. Unfortunately, the manufacturer has not upgraded the safety package for a long time.
It comes without even automatic emergency brakes, which is a standard in models like this. We must be honest, though, and say that they got reasonable rates on test drives, but still, they have to upgrade this system if they want to be competitive with more attractive models, like Hyundai Tucson. There are frequent equipment additions, like forward-collision warning and bling spot monitors as an optional package.
2021 Buick Encore Release Date and Price
2021 Buick Encore is an excellent vehicle for small families and daily usage. With the expected price of $24,000, it could be high competition for the best models in the class. The final version will be on the market in May 2020, when first buyers can order it.
