2017 Buick Encore
Since we saw it’s European Opel clone a few weeks ago, there are no surprises here.
As predicted, it is an Opel Mokka with a Buick grille.
Which is just fine.
The new interior is a big improvement. It makes the old one look quite cartoony.
As for the engine, I am not sure what’s new.
Here is the official PR:
” A unique 1.4 L Turbo with direct injection, more power, more torque and stop/start technology is available on most trims”
So I guess there is more power?
And MPG must be improved with stop/start.
They sold over 67 000 of these last year. Which is pretty good.
While Nissan sold a bit over 27 000 Jukes.
(The Juke’s best year was 2014 with just 38 184 units)
This revised and even more attractive one should do quite well.
