From the photos around on the web, we can say that the new Encore has a simple yet satisfying exterior design. The entire exterior is appealing to the eye with its modern features. We should see the use of lightweight materials in the new CUV as this is the trend nowadays.
The front grille looks new, as well as the headlights which have been spiced up with the LED technology. Also, the front end will have a well-positioned bumper with some additional lights installed on it. Viewing 2017 Buick Encore from the rear end, you will notice a touch of sleekness. This end will come with a new spoiler and modified tail lights. The sides will stand out with brand new 18-inch wheels.
The outgoing model has some issues with cabin space: it is not spacious enough to offer fully comfortable rides. The automaker has solved the issues in the new model. Now you can enjoy stress-free head space and leg room in all your journeys. The cabin also looks good with a selection of wood trims and metal accents.

We are anticipating for two engine options in the upcoming 2017 Buick Encore . One of the engines should be a 1.4-liter turbo I4 with a capacity of 138 hp and 184 lb-ft. We should also not miss a 1.0-liter 3-Cylinder petrol engine capable of generating 115 hp and 125 lb-ft.
The two engines will be mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission to provide for enhanced gear shifts and better fuel efficiency. Drivers will either use a front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive depending on their needs. The car will take 9.0 seconds to move from 0-60 mph. On the side of fuel economy, expect the car to record 25 mpg city and 33 mpg highway.
