2013 Buick Encore Features

9.0
On Features

The Buick Encore comes as a single model with plenty of standard features, an option for all-wheel drive ($1,500), and a set of packages with more luxury touches that ratchet up its base price from $24,950 to just past the $30,000 mark.

Each 2013 Encore comes with standard power windows, locks, and power heated mirrors; cloth upholstery with faux-leather trim; cruise cruise control; 18-inch wheels; a cargo cover; a power driver seat; ambient lighting; active noise cancellation; OnStar; and a rearview camera.

IntelliLink is mobile connectivity made simple; noise cancellation keeps the cabin quiet enough for Bose audio to pay off.

Also standard is Buick's IntelliLink, a Bluetooth-mediated system that uses voice commands or a 7.0-inch LCD screen and a controller knob to run mobile phone functions, the optional navigation system, and audio from a variety of sources--Bluetooth streaming, mobile apps like Pandora, USB, or satellite radio, all standard.

Packages include a Convenience group with remote start, automatic climate control, and fog lamps; Leather, with hides plus a heated steering wheel and heated front seats, memory functions, and a power front passenger seat; and a Premium package with Bose audio, parking sensors, a lane-departure warning system and a forward-collision alert system--both camera-based.

The Bose audio system is an option on Convenience- and Leather-equipped vehicles; a navigation system is offered on all but the base version, as is a sunroof.
