2016 Buick Encore Edmonton AB
For only being on the market a couple of short years, Buick’s subcompact crossover has rocketed into the limelight thanks to being one of the original vehicles in the segment. Crossovers have been gaining a lot of steam lately, thus generation new segments at different sizes, and the subcompact crossover class is one of the newest. There were only a couple on the market when the Encore was introduced, and now just a couple of years later the 2016 Buick Encore in Edmonton AB is set to be one of the brand’s most popular vehicles.
Its sleek, athletic design creates an aesthetic that crossover drivers crave, and its abundance of premium features found throughout the vehicle combine to create the vehicle that these drivers want. It might not be the most spacious or powerful vehicle on the road, but it fills a very specific need that is increasing in popularity, and we presume the vehicle will fly off the lot as soon as it becomes available.
Capacity and Space in the 2016 Buick Encore
Considering its relatively short lifespan thus far, not much changed for the 2016 model year. The Encore picked up three great new exterior colors in the form of River Rock Metallic, Graphite Gray Metallic and Summit White, but aside from that the only change was a revision of the 18” wheels, now with seven spokes and an Ultra-Bright finish. Of course, the new Encore Sport Touring special edition trim level was also introduced, but that’s a completely different story.
What’s important in the Buick Encore is of course the capacity and space. It might be a small vehicle, and if you’re looking to help your buddies move a ton of furniture frequently it might not be for you, but the space it provides inside is still important. With seating for five it isn’t built for big families, but the four or five passengers you squeeze inside will be properly comfortable, and you’ll still have room for plenty of cargo behind the back seat thanks to an 18.8 cubic-foot volume. On the off chance you do need to carry a bit more than that, fear not, as the back seats can fold flat to open up 48.4 cu. ft. of space.
The 2016 Buick Encore certainly fills a niche in the market, and if you’re looking for a spacious vehicle without the clunkiness tethered to a giant sport utility vehicle then perhaps the subcompact crossover is the right segment for you.
