The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.2
5.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Audi Q3 whispers “GTI” in the ears of brand-conscious drivers—but it’s, like, discreet about it. Small luxury crossovers are hot, but the 2019 Buick Encore offers a decidedly calm option. It's cute and affordable, but lacks some options found on others.
