New 2021 Buick Encore for Sale in Sudbury, ON

Plenty of SUVs of all sizes get used for short journeys in areas like Lo-Ellen or Lockerby, but many of them are not as suited to the town or city as the 2021 Buick Encore. The Encore is a small, economical SUV but there’s still a good amount of room inside for passengers and cargo. You’ll also find that the 2021 Encore is nippy, well-equipped, and safe for such a compact vehicle, and it won’t have to break the bank to purchase one either.

Pure simplicity

You might want to say there are two versions of the 2021 Buick Encore for buyers to choose between, but that’s only true if you consider adding all-wheel-drive as constituting another variant. In reality, there’s just a single, extremely well-equipped trim level in the current Encore lineup which is the Encore Preferred.

Although there’s only a single trim level this time around, the generous level of standard kit it comes with can be added to with plenty of available options that include some pretty upscale features for a subcompact crossover.

2021 Buick Encore Powertrain and Fuel Economy

Lively and Economical

It’s certainly not unusual for a single powertrain to be found in models like the Buick Encore, and powering the 2021 model is a 1.4-litre turbo-four producing a healthy 138 horsepower and 162 lb.-ft. of torque. The power is then sent to your choice of the front or all four wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission that’s electronically controlled with overdrive.

Small-displacement turbocharged engines sometimes have a reputation for being a little noisy when accelerating hard, but the engine in the 2021 Buick Encore is reasonably quiet under such conditions and the sound deadening is excellent to help deliver an experience that’s more comfortable and quieter than some might expect from a small turbocharged SUV.

Whether you’re constantly running around town or you spend a good amount of your time at highway speeds on the Trans-Canada Highway, you won’t find yourself getting too familiar with your local gas station. You’ll also be pleased to hear that there isn’t a big fuel-consumption penalty for choosing the extra capability of all-wheel-drive.

Front-drive versions of the 2021 Buick Encore are rated at 9.7 L/100 km in the city and 7.3 L/100 km on the highway, while all-wheel-drive versions are rated at a fairly similar 10.2 L/100 km in the city and 7.7 L/100 km on the highway.

Well-equipped and impressively safe

There’s no difference in specification between the front-drive and AWD versions of the 2021 Buick Encore, apart from the drivetrain. The standard specification is impressive, but there’s still room to up the ante for features and equipment with an options list that includes some pretty upscale features.

Standard equipment includes 18-inch alloys, LED daytime running lights, air conditioning, 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot capability, a six-speaker audio system, a 4.2-inch diagonal colour driver information centre, a six-way power driver’s seat, cruise control, and a 7.0-inch Bluetooth touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

The Encore is a safe little model that does well in IIHS crash tests, and the NHTSA gives the Buick a full five-star rating for overall safety. Ten airbags, a rear vision camera, rear cross-traffic alert, Side Blind Zone Alert and tire pressure monitoring are all standard, but you can also upgrade to forward collision alert, front and rear park assist and lane departure warning if you want to be even safer.
