TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Buick Encore masks its economy-car roots well, but tepid performance keeps its from earning a premium label. With its useful hatchback shape and thrifty fuel economy, the 2016 Chevrolet Trax is a smart package for city dwellers who value practicality over power or style. The smartly styled 2016 Fiat 500X is no off-roader, but it might be the most useful vehicle from the brand yet.
