The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Buick Encore is one of very few subcompact premium crossovers, and it mostly does well in that role--but it could use more power. Tall wagons aren't a thing here, yet, but the 2014 Fiat 500L gives us one more reason to ask, why not?
