The 2021 Buick Encore GX is a freshly styled, contemporary, subcompact crossover SUV that’s a bit bigger than the standard Buick Encore that remains in production alongside this new GX model. It might not look obviously bigger from the outside, but the designers of the Encore GX have worked wonders by making even more space available inside for passengers and cargo.
You’ll find generous amounts of legroom and headroom in the front and the rear seats, the exterior styling is modern and a touch sporty, and a pair of great engines help make the 2021 Encore GX the perfect vehicle whether you’re driving on the Can-Am Highway or along Sims Ave.
There are three trim levels of Encore GX available, but if there isn’t a trim level that’s perfect for what you need there are also some exciting upgrade packages and individual optional features you can add to make the Encore GX your own.
At the entry-level in the current range, we have the Encore GX Preferred, and this is the only version here in Canada that’s available in a front-wheel-drive form. The mid-range model in the Encore GX lineup is the Select trim, and the range-topper is the Essence. Select and Essence trim levels are standard all-wheel-drive, and if you want to upgrade further there are also the Appearance, Active Lifestyle, Advanced Technology and Black Roof packages to select from.
Whether it’s for frequent trips to shops in the centre of Weyburn, dropping the kids off at school or for taking them to Jubilee Park for a kick around, the 2021 Buick Encore GX has it covered.
There are two engines in the Encore GX to choose between and the standard powerplant is a 1.2-litre, three-cylinder turbo that puts out 137 horsepower and 162 lb.-ft. of torque which is sent to the Buick’s front wheels through a continuously variable transmission (CVT). If this engine and drivetrain are what you want you’ll find them only with the Preferred trim level.
If all-wheel-drive is a must-have for you then you’ll also be upgrading to the more powerful 1.3-litre version of the turbo-three engine. In that case, you’ll find a very useful 155 horsepower and 174 lb.-ft. of torque available to you and instead of the CVT that comes mated to the 1.2-litre engine, the Encore GX will then be sending that power to all four wheels through a nine-speed automatic transmission.
Fuel economy ratings for the Encore GX Preferred equipped with the 1.2-litre engine and front-wheel-drive come in at 9.0 L/100 km in the city, 7.9 L/100 km on the highway and 8.4 L/100 km combined. Your fuel economy won’t be heavily punished if you opt for the extra capability of all-wheel-drive as the AWD 1.3 is rated at a very competitive 9.0 L/100 km in the city, 8.1 L/100 km on the highway and 8.4 L/100 km combined.
A Buick Driver Confidence Package comes standard with every version of the 2021 Encore GX, and that means you get the benefit of active safety features that include Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, Following Distance Indicator and IntelliBeam headlamps with auto high beam.
Some vehicles have entry-level models that are rarely seen on lots as they’re low-spec, low-priced models aimed primarily at fleet buyers. By way of complete contrast, the 2021 Encore GX is a fantastic value, well-equipped model with huge appeal that comes standard with an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system featuring wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, two-device Bluetooth connectivity, a six-speaker audio system with amplifier, keyless start, climate control, 18-inch alloy wheels and cloth/leatherette seats.
Select and Essence versions of the little Buick build upon the Preferred model’s generous offering, but some really upscale extra features can also be found on the options list. If you really want to transform your little Encore GX with big car features you can add the likes of adaptive cruise control, an HD surround vision camera system, satellite navigation, an upscale Bose premium sound system, genuine leather upholstery and even a high-tech heads-up display.
The 2021 Buick Encore GX is small in terms of its footprint and the amount of fuel it uses, but it feels a lot bigger sometimes thanks to its generous interior space, a pair of engines that are lively and responsive, and an impressive list of standard and available features that can move the Encore GX towards the feel of a luxury car.
