Exterior Design

The 2021 Buick Encore is a hit, design-wise, getting the most out of its smaller frame to offer both stylish looks and utility. A low slung, athletic body with a sculpted hood and side panels gives the Encore undeniable SUV-appeal, while the LED daytime running lamps flanking its grille—with Buick’s signature lighting style—are an undeniable bright spot on this compact SUV. LED-accented tail lights keep the sporty persona of the Encore front and centre, as do the standard 18” aluminum wheels with Technical Grey pockets.
An available one-touch power moonroof offers a breath of fresh air on the 2021 Buick Encore, both literally and figuratively, while the rest of the interior offers the same luxurious approach you expect from a Buick. Comfortable seating for 5 also offers plenty of versatility thanks to the fold-flat front passenger and second-row seats, allowing the Encore to provide up to 1,371-litres of cargo space. Add in Buick QuietTuning® technology, with features like triple door seals and acoustic laminated glass, and you can enjoy an exceptionally quiet ride—or take advantage of the Encore’s potent sound system.

Adding to the luxurious feel of the 2021 Buick Encore is a host of advanced technology features, beginning with the standard Buick Infotainment System. A 7-inch diagonal colour touch-screen equipped with both Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ allows you to stay both safe and connected on your drive, while the built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi® Hotspot ensures you and your passengers have high-speed access to up to seven devices. The available myBuick mobile app is just icing on the cake, with the ability to check everything from tire pressure to your parking spot remotely from your phone, while Buick Connected Services lets you keep track of your vehicle, your maintenance plan, and more.

Performance & Efficiency

A turbocharged 1.4-litre, DOHC (dual overhead cam) 4-cylinder engine provides the necessary pickup to push the 2021 Buick Encore along with 155 horsepower and 158 lb-ft of torque. This means whether you’re zipping through downtown traffic or hitting the highway, you’ll have no problem passing any of the vehicles on the road. Matched to a 6-speed automatic transmission, the 2021 Encore provides exceptional estimated fuel efficiency, as low as 9.7 L/100 km in the city and 7.3 L/100 km on the highway in the front-wheel drive-equipped version of this crafty crossover. For those on the more adventurous side, you can opt the intelligent All-Wheel Drive version of the Encore where an onboard computer monitors the performance of all four wheels, transferring torque to the wheels that need it most to keep you under control. From there, StabiliTrak® technology adds another layer of defense against inclement weather and uneven roads.

Ten standard airbags is just the start of the safety measures found in the incredibly confident 2021 Buick Encore. A Rear Vision Camera helps keep you and those around you safe while reversing out of the driveway, while Rear Cross Traffic Alert provides an extra set of eyes when you’re reversing into a parking lot. The standard Side Blind Zone Alert feature keeps you apprised of any vehicles just out of sight, with side mirror alerts warning you when a vehicle is detected outside your vision. Plus, with the available OnStar® system, you’ll have access to Automatic Crash Response, Emergency Services, and 24/7 Roadside Assistance.
