With just a few short weeks remaining before the 2012 Detroit Auto Show press days begin, January 9 and 10, Buick sends out this teaser photo of its all-new 2013 Encore five-passenger compact crossover making its world debut there.
As our sister publication TheCarConnection notes, this new small crossover bears some resemblance to its bigger brother, the Enclave seven-passenger SUV, specifically in the blue accented projector-beam headlamp and other Buick styling cues.
The signature Buick Quiet-Tuning technology will be featured in the Encore, along with other features that owners and prospective buyers of Buicks expect to find.
What that actually means in terms of the execution will have to wait for the full reveal in Detroit, although we’ll be able to get little previews here and there. That’s because Buick will reveal a section of an image each week on its Facebook fan page leading up the final image on the morning of the Encore’s official reveal January 10.
The 2012 Detroit Auto Show promises to be full of exciting product debuts, and, as always, we’ll bring you up-to-date coverage of the goings-on here and through our sister sites TheCarConnection and MotorAuthority.
