Standard on every 2019 Buick Encore Safety Sense, which is really a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.

On the next rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a vehicle alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.

You can consider the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a number of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a larger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.

Many of the features on the upper trim levels could be added to the low trim levels as options. Other notable options incorporate a sunroof, a JBL sound system coupled with a built-in navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.

As sedans go, the 2019 Buick Encore stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the rear seat is simple to fold down to suit longer items. There are enough cabin storage options to make most people happy. Loading an automobile seat is straightforward, too.

Small-item storage


Cabin storage is good but not stellar. The forward center console bin is great for concealing items but features a hard, slippery floor, so they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is just a decent size, and you can find modest door pockets in the front and rear that are great for small water bottles only.

Cargo space


The 2019 Buick Encore includes a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles allow it to be easy to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.

Child safety seat accommodation


It’s super easy to mount an automobile seat, with obvious and easily accessible lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s enough room so the front seat need not be scooted entirely forward.
