TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Buick Encore reaches for the compact-luxury stars, but it falls shy on styling and front-seat space. The 2017 Chevrolet Trax may lack power and style, but it's a smart package for city dwellers thanks to a useful hatchback shape, thrifty fuel economy, and a low price. With more personality than most small crossovers, the Fiat 500X is definitely worth a look.
