The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Buick Encore could use a little power, but it's otherwise a mostly solid entry into a very small segment. The 2015 MKC doesn’t go far in redefining Lincoln as a brand, but badging aside, it presents as exactly the luxury product shoppers want—a lively and lavish, yet super-refined compact crossover.
