TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Buick Encore was a good choice for city slickers, but it’s showing its age in all the wrong ways The 2020 Chevy Trax crossover has a low price for a tall ride height–and not much else. The 2020 Ford Ecosport is not particularly good value, not particularly efficient, and not particularly good.
