What is in a Buick Encore GX?

Buick Encore GX is a subcompact SUV, a new addition in SUVs' Buick line. It is only available in two model years, the 2020 and 2021. Buick decided to offer a new SUV lineup to cater to more customers around the world. The Encore GX replaced the original Encore, which debuted in 2013 and served as an extra small SUV.

, Unlike the Original Encore, the 2021 Encore GX has more superior features than the original Encore, making it more versatile as an SUV. It comes with an updated interior, better performance, and a wide collection of safety features. It is also a better choice when it comes to small SUVs. The only downside to this small SUV is that the wide range of features means the car is priced higher than its competitors. The quality materials and the advanced tech make the price worth it.
