The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
7.8
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. Compared to the Toyota Prius, the 2014 Ford C-Max Hybrid and C-Max Energi provide more driving enjoyment as well as a more comfortable, stylish interior -- even if they don't quite measure up in real-world fuel efficiency.
