The 2017 Buick Encore is looking sharp inside and out. With a newly sculpted design and technology upgrade, the Buick Encore has improved its already stellar reputation and increased its popularity as America’s go-to small SUV.
“The Buick Encore created the premium small SUV segment and remains the top choice for customers seeking premium features and dependability coupled with timeless design,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Buick Sales, Service and Marketing. “In a rapidly evolving segment, the Encore continues to lead with smart, purposeful updates and a new level of technology-infused elegance and refinement.”
Bold exterior design
The 2017 Buick Encore delivers a modern look thanks to its winged grille stamped with Buick’s latest tri-color insignia and rear LED signature tail lamps. Higher Encore models complete the stunning look with full LED headlamps.
Drivers have the choice of three exceptional exterior colors for the 2017 Encore: Ebony Twilight Metallic, White Frost Metallic and Black Cherry Metallic. New 18-inch wheels round out the more athletic look of the 2017 Encore, while body-color, heated exterior mirrors and a chrome exhaust outlet are perfect complements to the chiseled compact SUV.
“Sporting cues first shown on the award-winning Avenir and Avista concepts, the 2017 Encore embraces Buick’s modern design aesthetic,” said Holt Ware, Design Director, Buick Exteriors. “The Encore is a crossover known for its presence—the appearance is sleek, muscular and modern.”
The 2017 Buick Encore’s interior is a feast for the eyes with exquisite details like contrast stitching and bright accents. A new gauge-cluster—complete with a 4.2-inch diagonal color driver information center—is just one of the sophisticated elements in the refreshed instrument panel.
“As a representation of modern Buick styling, the Encore’s cabin is sophisticated in look and feel, and precise in its execution,” said Liz Wetzel, Design Director, Buick Interiors. “The instrument panel and center stack forms are artfully sculpted, while offering an effortless interface with the infotainment technologies.”
The 2017 Buick Encore features technology options that tech-savvy drivers crave. The next-generation IntelliLink system supports the Encore’s available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, while the frameless eight-inch color diagonal touch screen gives drivers a remarkably clear picture.
In addition to the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, the 2017 Buick Encore features OnStar 4G LTE with the now standard Wi-Fi hotspot (in Buick’s U.S. models).
The 2017 Buick Encore has undergone a remarkable physical transformation; the SUV’s new look is powerful, athletic and unforgettable.
