2019 Buick Encore Review – You want high-tech equipment, good driving quality, attractive styling and luxury in a compact vehicle, so the Buick Encore should be on your list. It is one of the smallest cars in the Buick range and also the most affordable; but if you are looking for something bigger, then you could see the Envision or Enclave models. The current Buick Encore 2018 has been revealed and has made some changes, mainly in the technical department. However, the new version of Buick has also been announced, so we hope to see the new 2019 Buick Encore soon. However, the 2019 model year will not bring any significant improvement and for a major revision, it will be necessary to wait until the year 2021.

The current model has arrived with updates. These include new optional features such as the indoor air filter and the HD radio. In addition, now the fuel filler without the plug is standard on all models and there is a new exterior color: the Coppertino metal. On the other hand, the model year 2019 will not change either. And the only revisions we could see are also new exterior colors and some interior color combinations. In addition, there may be minor updates in the technical department, while the engine will remain the same. Some sources also say that we should finally see the new 9-speed automatic GM, but that is not yet confirmed.
