While the 2021 Buick Encore only offers two trim levels, it doesn't reserve its best standard or infotainment features for its more expensive trim, the Encore Preferred. Cruise control, keyless entry, a 6-way power driver's seat, and more all come standard on the base trim of the Encore. In cars from other manufacturers, you'd have to opt for the higher trim levels to get similar (or often far less impressive) features. This is just one of the many ways that Buick has earned its reputation for luxury.
Among the features that you can expect from a Buick that is not available from lesser brands is QuietTuning. This encompasses a variety of technologies and construction techniques designed to keep the cabin quiet so you can enjoy relaxed conversation or quiet music. QuietTuning includes, but is not limited to, features such as triple door seals and acoustic laminated glass in the front and side windows.
Despite its low price point, the 2021 Buick Encore offers the same luxurious cabin you'd expect from such a respectable, high-end brand. The cloth and faux leather seats (which are easier to clean than genuine leather) are plush and comfortable, and its interior is surprisingly spacious considering the exterior's compact and streamlined appearance.
Size and Space
The 2021 Buick Encore's exterior is around 168 inches long and 70 inches wide with a height of 65 inches and a wheelbase of 100 inches, making it smaller than many other subcompact SUVs. If you regularly navigate tight corners and cramped parking spaces, the Encore handles both with finesse. Its sleek, elegant lines and stylish grille have a commanding appearance without feeling too aggressive.
However, its compact exterior conceals a surprisingly large interior. Inside, you'll find 19 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats, and that goes up to 49 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded down. You can also fold down the front passenger seat as well for even more space if you need to transport longer items like golf clubs or furniture. Best of all, the Encore seats up to five passengers comfortably, so your entire family (or a group of your closest friends) can all enjoy its smooth handling and subtle luxury.
