The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Buick Encore does nearly everything a pint-sized premium crossover should do--minus a few dozen horsepower, that is. The 2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid is the first head-to-head challenger for the Toyota Prius since that car grabbed the green mantle a decade ago--and in many ways, the Ford's a better daily driver.
