2022 Buick Encore at Budds’ Chev in Oakville, ON

Even when you think you’ve reached the limits of what can be accomplished in a compact crossover SUV, the 2022 Buick Encore is there to provide you with an added dose of performance, style, and safety after the fact. So while other compact crossovers fail to fulfill their drivers’ desires, the 2022 Encore sweeps in, providing big-time SUV capability at a fraction of both the size and price. Hold your applause—the show must go on—and let Oakville’s Budds’ Chev show you just how the 2022 Buick Encore earns its rave reviews.


The 2022 Buick Encore offers classic leading-role good looks, with its chiseled features and athletic body style. LED daytime running lamps in Buick’s signature lighting steal the show, while the standard LED-accented tail lamps add a bit more character to this already colourful crossover. The interior of the 2022 Encore, with its seating for five, wows its captive audience thanks to its standard leather-wrapped steering wheel, Satin Silver and Chrome shift knob, and Buick QuietTuning® technologies.

Lovers of the big screen will be engrossed by the standard 8” diagonal colour touch-screen Buick® Infotainment System, while the available power moonroof affords access to sunshine in the day, and the star-studded sky at night. While its show stopping good looks tend to take the lead, a strong supporting cast of features offers the kind of utility you’d expect out of a much larger SUV. Keyless entry and a push-button start provide a dramatic flair to every trip, while a fold-flat front passenger seat and folding second row seats create up to 1,371 litres of cargo space. With its mix of good looks and utility, it’s no wonder the 2022 Buick Encore finds itself under the spotlight again and again.

The 2022 Buick Encore may look small, but it’s got a hearty roar to it—thanks in no small part to a 1.4L DOHC turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that cranks out 138 horsepower and 158 lb-ft of torque. Swift and lively, the Encore dances in and out of traffic with ease, a tight turning radius making it ideal for the urban stage and the open roads alike. Whether you choose the front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive model, the standard StabiliTrak electronic stability control system with traction control lets you get—and keep—the show on the road. For those that do opt for the available intelligent All-Wheel Drive, your Encore will monitor and automatically transfer power to the necessary wheels for the best traction possible, meaning you can chew up all the scenery you see fit. Of course, the turbocharged engine paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission promises exceptional efficiency, to the estimated tune of 7.8 L/100 km and 8.0 L/100 km on the highway in the front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive models, respectively. Meaning that, even after the final curtain call, the 2022 Buick Encore keeps going—and there’s not too many other compact crossovers out reading from the same script.
