The new Buick Encore has been getting a lot of attention lately for being one of the smallest SUV’s in a world of vehicles that just keep getting bigger and bigger. But now the Encore is making headlines for something totally different – it’s incredibly high marks in safety tests issued by the IIHS and NHTSA. According to a recent press release by Buick, “The 2013 Encore luxury small crossover joins all other current Buicks as an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety 2013 Top Safety Pick. The Encore with all-wheel drive also received a 5-star Overall Vehicle Score for safety from the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration.”
Not many other car makers can make that claim these days. However, Buick is very proud that all their vehicles keep meeting such high safety standards.
The Encore has 10 standard airbags, a rear vision camera, and features such as OnStar that help people when they need it most. Perhaps one of the coolest safety feature in the Encore is the new sensors that, in a rollover crash, are able to detect what’s going on and deploy head curtain airbags prior to impact. It’s innovations like that that keep Buick on top!

In our last blog we showed you a few pictures of the new 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 pickup truck. We showed the remodeled exterior, spacious interior, and the redesigned information center.

USA Today recently came out with an article about the new Buick Encore entitled “2013 Buick Encore shrink wraps the brand’s core values.” And the more we thought about this title, the more we realized how perfect it was. The Buick Encore is unlike any Buick vehicle in the past. Sure, it’s an SUV like the Enclave, but it’s much smaller. However, despite its differences in comparison to the rest of the Buick fleet, the Encore is still very much a Buick at its core. The exterior styling has Buick written all over it, and all the technology on the interior absolutely lives up to what everyone has come to expect from this luxury brand of cars and SUV’s.
The USA Today article goes on to say, “Buick wants to combine its core attributes into an entirely new, and much smaller, crossover design intended to appeal to younger clientele. The 2013 Buick Encore enters a SUV and crossover market brimming with worthy competition, such as the Mini Countryman, Honda CR-V, and VW Tiguan.”
So we would like to give a little challenge to you. We challenge you to go out and take those other small SUV’s out for a test drive, and then come to DeVoe Buick and take the Encore out for a test drive. We are that confident that when you put the Encore up against the competition, it’ll be obvious which one is the best.
