What the Critics Say

"The Encore GX is at the larger and more luxurious end of the extra-small SUV segment. It comes with a wealth of available technology and safety features as well as a more upscale interior than most other rival SUVs. Its larger than average size, for the class, also benefits interior and cargo space." - Edmunds

"Thankfully, there's serenity to be found in the Encore GX's thoughtful cabin. We appreciated the GX's simple climate controls, intuitive and clear instrument display, and high-mounted 8.0-inch touchscreen. The front seats also felt elevated, and while some of the plastics were hit or miss, soft-touch materials were nice." - MotorTrend

What's New for 2023

With the discontinuation of the regular Buick Encore, the Encore GX is now the smallest member of the Buick model lineup. Already one of the best-selling models in the brand's portfolio, the Encore GX returns for 2023 almost entirely unchanged from last year. The sole update is adding a new Moonstone Gray Metallic exterior paint color. Drivers searching for a premium compact SUV that combines value with versatility should look no further than the dynamic Buick Encore GX.
