The 2017 Buick Encore, Trim by Trim

Standard Encore Features

With safety being a top concern for Buick’s design team, you’ll find that all of the models have high standard safety packages. Feel at ease when driving an Encore. With 10 airbags, including side-impact and head-curtain, you’ll be riding with the highest protection in this class. But there is so much more than just a 5-star rating in safety that you’ll get when buying a Buick.

With a 6-way power driver seat adjuster, you can make sure that you’re riding in customized comfort. In all of the models, the front passenger seat folds flat, allowing you to transport items up to eight feet in length. With the passenger seats folded, your cargo space expands from 18.8 cu. ft. to a whopping 48.4 cu. ft.

Preferred Trims

If you want to keep your budget in check but enjoy taking to the outdoors, the Encore Preferred is a great choice for you. It comes with a rear cargo cover to keep your belongings in check. With this model, you can also expand your cargo equipment with cargo mats, trays, and even a carrier mount for your bike or skis.

The Encore Preferred II trim begins to build a more luxury feel for this SUV. Introduced with this model and higher, the Remote Vehicle Starter system allows you to start the vehicle ahead of time. This gives the automatic dual zone air conditioning system time to cool or warm the cabin before you enter it. Additions such as side blind zone alert and rear cross-traffic alert help notify the driver of other vehicles to help avoid a collision.

On top of more advanced safety features, the Preferred II trim adds to the technology of the standard edition. With a 120-volt power outlet and available power moonroof, you’ll want to take this car with you everywhere.

Sport Touring

For a sporty version of a compact SUV, look for the Sport Touring trim. With better fuel economy,  most Sport Touring models will come with the available rear sport spoiler, bringing an aerodynamic flair to the rear profile of the vehicle.

Essence and Premium

With both these trim levels, you’ll see an upgrade in the available comfort and entertainment features. The 6-way power and memory drivers and passenger seats come standard with both editions, as well as LED headlamps, upgraded from halogen.

With the Premium trim model, the sound system is enhanced to a Bose® 7-speaker premium sound system. In addition to side blind zone and rear cross-traffic alerts, this trim boasts a forward collision alert, front and rear ultrasonic park assist, and lane departure warnings, making it the pinnacle of safety enhancements.
