Dave's Garage: 2021 Buick Encore GX

Eric Peters on

It differs from others in the class in being the only vehicle in the class with such a small engine.

Two of them, actually.

Prices start at $24,200 for the base Preferred trim with the standard 1.2-liter engine and front-wheel drive. If you buy the available all-wheel-drive system, you get upgraded to a slightly larger 1.3-liter engine, which is also optional by itself with the midtrim Select ($25,800) and the top-of-the-line Essence ($28,600) trim.

What's New

All trims come standard with satellite radio and both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity.

What's Good


There's lots of room -- without the size.

It comes standard with a turbocharged engine.

It has an available heated steering wheel, Bose premium audio system, heads-up display and a wireless charging pad.
