Discerning shoppers in Sudbury who know their vehicle will spend most of its life in the urban jungle might want to concentrate on maneuverability and fuel economy oversize, and overt off-road capability. However, that doesn’t mean they are happy to compromise on style, comfort, and luxury, and that’s where the sensational 2023 Buick Encore GX comes in.
It could be easy to dismiss subcompact SUVs as looking odd, cute, or even strange at times, but the 2023 Buick Encore GX doesn’t fit any of those descriptions. The 2023 Encore GX exudes a classy, mature, and premium aura while delivering the overt practicality of a tall hatchback body style. The interior adopts a similar blueprint by being stylish, premium, and high-quality. It also makes exceptional use of the available dimensions to be more spacious than you might imagine.
The 2023 Encore GX lineup includes three trim levels, starting with the entry-level Preferred trim that doesn’t look or feel like a “base” model with its impressive standard specification. The mid-range model in the family is the Select, and the Encore GX Essence sits at the top of the range.
A pair of three-cylinder turbocharged engines are available, with the first a 1.2-litre turbo-three and the second a 1.3-litre unit. You’ll only find the 1.2 under the hood of front-drive versions of the entry-level Preferred trim, which produces a very decent 137 horsepower and 162 lb.-ft. of torque. The power goes to the front wheels through a continuously variable transmission (CVT), and this combination delivers fuel economy ratings of 8.0 L/100 km in the city and 7.6 L/100 km on the highway.
The Preferred is the only 2023 Buick Encore GX available with a front-wheel drivetrain, although the AWD system standard for the rest of the lineup is an option for the Encore GX Preferred. The Select and Essence trim levels get all-wheel drive as part of their standard specification, and the 1.3-litre engine is also standard with any AWD version of the Encore GX. The 1.3 provides the little Buick SUV with 155 horsepower and 174 lb.-ft. of torque that goes to all four wheels through a standard nine-speed automatic transmission. The 1.3-litre engine fuel economy ratings come in at 9.0 L/100 km in the city and 8.3 L/100 km on the highway.
The Preferred and Select trim levels have impressive standard specifications, but a relatively small uplift in the MSRP can get you the range-topping Essence trim. The Encore GX Essence trim level includes standard AWD and the 1.3-litre engine. Exclusive Essence standard features include Automatic on/off LED headlamps, some upscale chrome exterior accents, LED tail lights, a 120-volt power outlet, 8-way power adjustable front passenger seat, and leather upholstery. It also includes a hands-free power liftgate standard with the Select trim.
Standard features for all models include 18-inch alloy wheels, QuietTuning, a ten-way power driver’s seat, air conditioning, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Every version of the Encore GX also includes the Buick Driver Confidence package. This package of active safety features includes Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, Following Distance Indicator, and IntelliBeam auto high-beam assist.
The 2023 Buick Encore GX delivers the small footprint, maneuverability, and fuel economy urban shoppers want in a comfortable and premium package that doesn’t strain the budget as a genuine luxury model would.
