It may be tiny and awkward looking, but Buick's subcompact crossover packs large levels of refinement and premium features, says Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays. The 2013 Encore blends the tall ride height of an SUV with the materials of a luxury vehicle and the maneuverability of a compact car, Mays says. The subcompact SUV class may be small now, but Mays says expect vehicles like the Encore to start catching on with young professionals and empty-nesters.
