Stylish and Innovative – 2020 Buick Encore GX
Growing up, road trips with the family are honestly some of the fondest memories I have. Whether we were headed to the beach or to the Great Smoky Mountains, we were always on the road. As a parent, that is one thing that I have made sure to pass on to my children. So when Buick reached out to send us an Encore GX to test drive for a weekend, I seized the opportunity.
We travel frequently throughout the year and one thing I have come to realize is that comfort and performance matters! When I was a little girl, I never recall complaining about how cramped I was in the car or even experiencing a rough ride. As I look back on this, I realize it was due to the car my father selected as our family vehicle, a Buick! Having grown up riding in a Buick, I quickly began to understand why my father made a point to purchase a Buick whenever he went car shopping. For him, a Buick meant safety, comfort, and exceptional performance.
Buick Encore GX
The Encore GX is the first-ever five-person SUV from Buick that is designed to fit the way your life moves. As you can see from the picture above, this stylish and sleek Encore GX is striking with its signature grill. It is a nimble performer that offers the perfect balance of efficiency and power to confidently get you to all the places you need to go.
Buick Encore GX Safety
As I mentioned previously, one of the reasons my father kept purchasing a Buick was due to the safety features it provided. What is particularly notable about the Encore GX is that it comes equipped with Buick Driver Confidence. Standard on all Encore GX trims, the Buick Driver Confidence includes the following innovative safety technology features:
Forward Collision Alert
Automatic Emergency Braking
Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
Following Distance Indicator,
Front Pedestrian Braking
We were able to experience these standard features during our test drive. As you can imagine, driving through the winding roads of the Blue Ridge mountains during the Fall requires you to be even more alert as a driver. As people stop to gaze out at the colorful landscape, the Encore GX actually detected that we were rapidly approaching a car that had stopped to take in the beauty of the picturesque view. The vehicle automatically applied the brakes for us.
We also discovered that the innovative Rear Camera Mirror provided a wide and less obstructed rear view when parking and driving, Plus, the High Definition Surround Vision camera system is something you have just got to see and experience. The high quality images made it easy for us to navigate our way through the scenic mountains.
Buick Encore GX Technology
I would describe myself as a tech savvy individual, and I can certainly say the same for the Buick Encore GX! With an onboard 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa integration, she can keep you connected no matter where you go. It’s like having Alexa sitting next to you. With Alexa Built-In use voice commands, you can connect to your favorite music service, get directions, make calls, check your calendar or to-do lists, add items to your Whole Foods shopping cart and more.
In a time when virtual learning is the norm, families don’t have to worry about stopping at destination to log in. With a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot capable of pairing up to seven devices, kids have no excuse! Plus, you’ll never be without power as there are plenty of USB ports.
Buick Encore GX Interior
We were not only impressed with Buick’s stylish appearance and enhanced safety features, but also the modern interiors made this five-person SUV one luxurious ride.
Offering more than 50 cu. ft. of maximum cargo space with the rear seats folded, including 2.7 inches of additional cargo height with a conveniently reconfigurable cargo area floor, you have plenty of room to pack your bags for a weekend road trip or a grocery run to your favorite store.
Looking for a quiet ride? That is actually one of the things I recall my father always raving about in his Buick! The Buick Encore GX utilizes triple door sealing, acoustic laminated glass, specific suspension tuning and other technologies to reduce, block and absorb unwanted noise.
Speaking of quiet, my husband and I noticed that our child that suffers from allergies was not near as congested thanks to the air ionizer in the Buick Encore GX. It helps to give a higher air quality inside the vehicle by eliminating odors and pollutants.
If you are looking for a small or compact SUV, we strongly encourage you to consider the Buick Encore GX. The new 2020 Buick Encore GX is stylish, intelligent, and sporty enough to keep up with your life, even when you are on the go!
