2017 Buick Encore SUV Premium 4dr SUV (1.4L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
Coefficient of Drag (CD) was improved from .37 to .33 which helps MPG, I get about 31 mpg mixed driving and up to about 37 mpg if I stick to about 65 mph on HWY, engine seems smoother, great feeling 6 speed automatic with good ratios, great handling and economy, better looking SUV and they removed the silly "Buick" symbols off the hood, dashboard a little better too with new larger display integrated and not separate with slightly simpler use, this is my forth and best Encore so far. Only complaint is Buick stopped showing Speed Limit signs on Navigation! They were shown from 2013-2016 then stopped, they need to update software to include it again for those having the Navigation. Otherwise it's still one of the very best Sub-Compact SUV's and engineered by Opel of Germany as an Opel Mokka!
2017 Buick Encore SUV Preferred II 4dr SUV (1.4L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
I leased a 2017 Encore and appearance and basic performance wise it is an awesome car. Safety features are great and initially we were pleased. I believe the first notice came on the way home when my wife says "hey where is my arm rest?" I'm like are you kidding one small arm rest for two people. The second thing that came out was when we both went to fasten seatbelts at the same time..."Not happening"...Thirdly This car may be perfect if you are a small person but if you have any size to you "beware" it gets a little close. Never ever try and put a full sized adult in the back seat. You do have one but maybe would work for a small child.

Compared to my 2015 Encore, this is greatly improved. I wanted two improvement and both were corrected. The engine was upped to give better performance. The interior audio, nav, etc were so difficult to learn how to use and now they are VERY user friendly.
