  • Spacious interior

  • All-wheel drive is only available with the V-6

  • Sloppy handling and steering

In a 2017 comparison test that included the other cars, the 2018 Buick Encore placed fifth. Handling also proved to be another 2018 Buick Encore weak spot and we found the steering to be numb. 

2018 Buick Encore First Drive

The 2018 Buick Encore, on the other hand, is a better package, as we noted in a 2017 First Test, thanks to its smooth powertrain and well-calibrated brakes that smoothly transition between regenerative and mechanical braking. However, since it isn’t a plug-in hybrid, the 2018 Buick Encore doesn’t have much EV mode range and can only travel around 0.5 miles on electricity.A rear view camera with rear parking sensors is now standard on all models.

The car is the only 2018 Buick Encore trim level that can be had with a cool two-tone exterior color scheme. The ride itself was smooth, and road imperfections were barely felt.”
