Every 2019 Buick Encore comes standard with a turbocharged 1.4L four-cylinder engine at 138 hp, which you won't find in many vehicles of this size. If you're looking for something with even more power, a 153 hp version of the same engine is available. Regardless of engine, every 2019 Encore is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission for smooth shifting.
Inside and out, you'll find plenty of convenient tech features on the 2019 Buick Encore. On the base 1SV trim, you'll find an eight-inch touchscreen display, Bluetooth® connectivity, and seamless smartphone integration via Android Auto® and Apple CarPlay™. Additional tech features include a rearview camera, OnStar® capability, and a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot (subscription may be required).
Every 2019 Encore comes standard with front-wheel drive, although all-wheel drive is available on all trims except for the base 1SV. Buick's all-wheel drive system monitors all four wheels and transfers power among them as needed to deliver improved traction and control in adverse weather and road conditions, giving drivers added confidence behind the wheel.
The subcompact size of the 2019 Buick Encore lends it to excellent handling and easy maneuverability no matter where the road takes you. Whether you need to pull into a tight parking space, whip around a sharp turn, or navigate through congested city traffic, the 2019 Encore is a breeze to maneuver. This makes it a great choice for city drivers.
If you opt for the Preferred trim on the 2019 Encore, you might also find some driver-assistance features that include blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. On the range-topping Essence trim, additional driver-assistance equipment like lane-departure warning and forward collision alert is also available as an add-on.
