The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

5.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. The 2019 Mini Countryman is a fun-to-drive crossover with sharp looks, cool interior, and a good hybrid powertrain—and none of it comes cheaply.
