2015 Buick Encore Reviews, Prices and Pictures – Welcome to Neocarsuv.com, we will provide the latest information about the Buick Encore Concept. 2015 Buick Encore changes is one brand new car from Buick that was released in 2015. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2015 Buick Encore Release Date.
The 2015 Buick Encore is an affordable compact SUV that gains standard OnStar 4G LTE with a Wi-Fi hot spot this year.
The 2015 Buick Encore is powered by a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine with 138 horsepower. A six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive are standard. All-wheel drive is available. With front-wheel drive, the 2015 Encore returns an EPA-estimated 25/33 mpg city highway. All-wheel drive models get 23/30 mpg.
The 2015 Buick Encore is a premium subcompact crossover, and for now, a segment of one; although that will change rapidly in the next year as models like the Audi Q3, Mercedes-Benz GLA, Honda HR-V, and Chevrolet Trax arrive.
The Encore shares some components and underpinnings with the subcompact Chevrolet Sonic, but you’d never know it inside or out. Its optional all-wheel drive isn’t available on the Sonic either though the system is tuned for bad-weather traction, rather than off-roading or rocky country tracks. Overall, the shape of the Encore tries to convey a tougher look to disguises its tall boxy shape. The front end is steeply raked, it rides on huge 18-inch wheels, and some of the body sculpting can appear as if the designers were simply trying too hard.

2015 Buick Encore Interior
Buick’s pint-sized Encore is positioned in the nebulous space between the mainstream and luxury crossover segments. Down on power and space compared to most similarly-priced ‘utes, it distinguishes itself with a well-furnished and whisper-quiet cabin along with good fuel efficiency and responsive handling.
Though it isn’t nearly as spacious as most mainstream “compact” crossovers that play in the same price bracket, the Encore feels larger than it is thanks to clever packaging and oversized front windows. It offers plenty of head- and leg-room for four adults, though the middle rear seat is best left to children. A reasonably commodious 19 cubic feet of cargo space are available behind the rear seats, while a full 48 cubes can be had by folding the rear seats down.
All Encores come standard with Buick’s IntelliLink infotainment system, which features a seven-inch display, Bluetooth connectivity, audio streaming capability, and voice command functionality that can be used to control the audio system and place phone calls. The setup can be spec’d with a navigation system with speed limit, traffic and point of interest (restaurant, gas station, attractions, etc) info. Real-time weather updates, nearby fuel prices and movie theater listings can also be accessed via an available SiriusXM Travel Link system.
The entry-level Encore Group trim comes standard with a backup camera, Bluetooth connectivity, Buick’s IntelliLink infotainment system with a seven-inch display, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, a six-speaker AM/FM/CD/SiriusXM stereo system with AUX and USB inputs, OnStar with a six-month free subscription, A/C, power windows and locks, cruise control, keyless entry and 18-inch alloy wheels. Newly standard is OnStar with 4G LTE and built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, which comes with a 3GB/three-month data trial.
2015 Buick Encore Exterior
Accommodations are good in certain dimensions height, particularly and tighter in others. The Encore is a narrow vehicle, so front-seat passengers can touch elbows occasionally. Its real forte is the flexible interior configuration: The back seat flips and folds down, and even the front passenger seat can fold too. That makes it far more useful as a small hatchback than you might expect from the premium trappings, adding some Honda Fit flexibility to the Buick Verano compact luxury overtones.
The 2015 Buick Encore seats five and offers a new standard OnStar 4G LTE system with a built-in Wi-Fi hot spot, which includes a three-month, three-gigabyte trial data subscription. Cloth seats with leatherette accents, 10 air bags, a rearview camera, a six-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a six-speaker audio system, Bluetooth and a 7-inch color touch-screen display are standard. Optional features include leather upholstery, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a Bose seven-speaker audio system, dual-zone automatic climate control, navigation, text message alerts and Siri Eyes Free integration, which enables iPhone iOS 6 and 7 users to respond to text messages and control music using voice commands. Front and rear park assist, rear cross traffic alert, forward collision warning and lane departure warning are also optional.
2015 Buick Encore Engine
There’s currently just one engine and transmission combination, the turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine from the Sonic mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. (All-wheel drive is optional.) But the Encore verges on 3,200 pounds, which is a lot of mass to move with just 138 horsepower. Even without the added weight of optional all-wheel drive, the 0-to-60-mph run takes around 9 seconds, and if you add the extra weight to drive all the wheels, you’ll take 10 seconds and learn to plan your on-ramps and merges well ahead of time.
The Encore is powered by a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that produces 138 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque. With the help of a six-speed automatic gearbox, that power is enough to allow the crossover to accelerate from zero-to-60 mph in slightly over nine seconds – far from quick, but fairly average for the subcompact segment.
