2013 Buick Encore

This week I had the pleasure of attending the Washington Automotive Press Association (WAPA) holiday party which was sponsored by Buick.  There they reveealed the 2013 Buick Encore.  Check it out.

Now here is what I loved about the Encore.  It’s small.  It can seat four adults comfortably and for  a family with one or two kids it is just right.  It offers the classically quiet ride Buick is known for while also providing a smooth transition during acceleration and braking.  The interior is just as luxe as the exterior and offers standard features like IntelliLink and a 7-inch full color display screen.  Each Encore has 10 standard air bags and a rear-vision camera and lane-departure warning.  It proved helpful during evening rush hour during my test drive.  There are loads of extras in the Encore’s four versions and pricing starts below $25, 000.  It really is a piece of affordable, comfortable luxury.
